"Honor your primal genes by slowing down and simplifying your life." Mark Sisson, The Primal Blueprint

CrossFit on Wednesday:
Tire Flips (I was unable to flip the large tire by myself this time... next time we play with tires, I'm going to do it!)
Conditioning: (Completed in 16:11)
“Drunken Bear”
3 Rounds
Bear crawl 50 f
400 m run
30 KB swing (25 lb kettlebell)
15 pull ups (using a gray and a red band... because 15 pulls ups are not a good time!)

Sean wanted to go out for dinner last night, and I am not one to deny free dinner, so we made our way to our favorite Paleo-friendly cafe, Healthy Garden.
Turkey Caprese Salad (minus mozzarella, plus romaine lettuce instead of spinach) = lettuce, tomato, turkey, and avocado with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

I'm most of the way into the movie Fat Head (available on Netflix). This guy seems to be on team Paleo so I'm digging it. It's worth a watch, especially if you are uneducated about diet myths.

About the Film (taken from the website):

"Comedian (and former health writer) Tom Naughton replies to the blame-McDonald’s crowd by losing weight on a fat-laden fast-food diet while demonstrating that nearly everything we’ve been told about obesity and healthy eating is wrong. Along with some delicious parody of Super Size Me, Naughton serves up plenty of no-bologna facts that will stun most viewers, such as: The obesity “epidemic” has been wildly exaggerated by the CDC. People the government classifies as “overweight” have longer lifespans than people classified as “normal weight.” Having low cholesterol is unhealthy. Lowfat diets can lead to depression and type II diabetes. Saturated fat doesn’t cause heart disease — but sugars, starches and processed vegetable oils do."
