Handy Recipes: Primal Finger Foods

So, yesterday we established that while you do in fact eat like Grok, what you really mean is that you eat the same types of food as Grok, but your use of a knife, fork and spoon means that you aren’t actually eating like Grok.

It’s a fun way to get in touch with your inner Grok (as well as save up some valuable space in your dishwasher!)

The following is a dinner menu you should consider getting your hands on…literally.

Make it a Primal Thanksgiving!

Given it’s Thanksgiving week, we thought we’d devote Monday to the big menu. (Check back tomorrow for this week’s Dear Mark!) Yup, we’re taking on the mother of all carb-laden holidays, and we aim to please. The truth is, you absolutely, positively can make Thanksgiving a primal success, and you needn’t compromise taste or tradition to stay on track this holiday. No franken-foods (Can we say Tofurky?) or flavorless “health” concoctions here. We think Grok – as well as William Bradford – would be pleased, and we hope you are too. Happy Thanksgiving to all our American Apples.
