SAHM mom here. At this stage, you'd find your exercise in the play aspect of primal blueprint, IMO. Chase them around a playground, go swimming, learn soccer together, have sprinting races through the park. It doesn't have to be for a set amount of time, just when everybody collapses
As far as the carby foods, we just don't stock it in the house. I do keep containers of primal friendly yummy food that they can grab and go.
It's been 3.5 months since we've went primal and the whining is barely negligible now.
We were not primal when my youngest was that age so I have no suggestions for the meat. But pureed meat sounds interesting!
You really hit the nail on the head though with the lack of time SAHMs tend to have with regards to their available time. I have friends who have to buy out the time and, each does it in their own way. One gets up before everyone and goes on a leisure stroll, sometimes its a brisk walk - but as she feels the energy, she goes with it. The other goes before supper, the other after supper, and yet another drops her kids off with relatives to blow some steam on the concrete trail.
For me, I get my walks in spurts. Walking the kids to school, sprint races around the block, random playing on the monkey bars. The last time I hung upside down on the monkey bars I was 7, in which I fell and broke my arm. It only took me 25 years to get back up there. C'est la vie!
