The Primal Blueprint

The Primal BlueprintWhen it comes to eating, I have always tried my best to eat as healthy as possible. Almost two years ago a I switched to a natural food diet where I eliminated all the processed stuff and focused my diet on meat, fruit, vegetables, and whole grains. It was a great transition and I felt better after making the switch.

However, I’ve taken it one step further since then and have removed all grains from my diet. Why would I do such a thing? Well, I’ve been doing a lot of reading regarding health and fitness lately and one of the books I read was The Primal Blueprint by Mark Sisson. I’ve followed Mark’s blog for a few years now and have always considered giving his diet a try.

I also read Gary Taubes book Good Calories, Bad Calories, which was a very interesting read about the science behind our diets. It digs deep into the studies that have been performed and challenges the conventional wisdom about what we should eat.

Our goal is to keep her car parked as much as possible (I don’t own a car myself). We’re still thinking about making the switch to a true car-free life but we want to give it a trial run before we make any major decisions.

The Importance of Natural Foods

Natural Foods Diet

After attempting to eat as healthy as possible for the past few years, I have finally managed to make the switch to an all natural diet that consists of “real food.” This post is the first one of my natural foods diet series where I will explain the diet and the process I went through to make the switch.

When it comes to eating healthy, it has been one of my main goals since I graduated high school. It all started when I wanted to bulk up and gain some weight and has since become part of my daily life.
