Okay I promise the recipes I tried last week will be posted later this afternoon. Blogging was interrupted by some house hunting (!) and the arrival of this little guy:
Before I get those recipes up, I want to spread some wonderful articles by Mark Sisson that I re-read this morning while searching for some motivation for a friend as well as for myself to stay on track. We're over halfway through July, and I have made the decision to make Paleo/primal living my permanent lifestyle. I am throwing around the idea of allowing myself to add in alcohol (one day a week maximum) to make it a little more livable and less anti-social. Giving up grains, dairy, and processed foods has been easier than I thought it would be with the exception of those oh so tempting desserts! I'm working on casting these sugary thoughts aside and trying to find healthy rewards just as emotionally satisfying.
I could get lost in primal info over at Mark's Daily Apple for hours, so I picked out some gems that I think are motivating for ANY healthy change:
How to Break Bad Habits
Rebuttals to Excuses for Not Exercising and Eating Unhealthy
And some for those interested in Paleo/primal living but aren't sure where to start:
