Primal Blueprint

I want to talk a little about the Primal Blueprint. As I’ve mentioned, when I was away on vacation a couple of weeks ago my friend’s boyfriend introduced me to the primal way of life. It intrigued me so much that I bought the book and a cookbook to get a feel for this way of life.

Technically, I’m already half way there. I don’t eat wheat or sugar (for the most part), and I eat vegetables like a fiend. So why not go the extra mile and see what else I should cut out?

So far so good… except I dont think I could ever give up potatoes.. nope definitely not. Maybe I can cut back. But give up? Never.

Also having a hard time parting ways with oats. I’m not a huge fan of hot oatmeal…but since I rediscovered oats recently and started making overnight oats…I can’t give them up either.

I’ve decided that I’m going to use this blueprint as just that – a foundation – but one of the things I love about it most is that the diet isn’t really a diet, but a way of life. And part of the regimen is to cheat occasionally and to enjoy your life.

What a way to live by.

He’s the guru… and he’s entertaining.

Since this was a short post, I’m going to leave you with a quick recipe/idea.

If you are sick of plain old chicken spice it up with some Jose….

Tequila Lime Chicken:

Marinade chicken in some tequila (just enough to moisten)
And squeeze a whole lime over it!

The tequila & citrus soften the chicken and soaks right into it.

Yummmmm….

Happy Sunday!
