    I was wondering if sweet potato is primal. I usually only eat sweet potato on days where I have a moderate to heavy workout session..any other good foods you like to eat on a heavy workout day?

    Yes, it is primal. I think most try to use it like you mentioned on heavy work out days, as more carbs are involved.

    Imagine yourself as Grok. You're hungry and you know there is this plant growing over there (next to the big rocks, you see it?), that has these big fat yellowey-orangey roots on it. Do you think it is "Primal" to go over there and dig a few of them up to eat? Heck in the right season you might dig up a whole lot of them and stash them in the back of your cave for the days when you couldn't catch an animal on your hunting excursion. (this is an equal opportunity scenario)

    Tubers helped sustain mankind (and still do in many cultures) for hundreds of thousands of years.

    It's primal as fuck. You should lift the heavies, everyone tells me to eat this sweet potato after lifting the heavies.

    The day I went for a 4 mile run after lifting heavy things for 20 minutes, I had two eggs with two pieces of bacon and sautee'd shredded zucchini topped with avocado and fresh-made salsa.
