Today, I’d like to share with you Mark Sisson’s The Primal Blueprint
Primal Blueprint (PB) is a concept that allows you to obtain optimal health and fitness based on the lifestyle factors of our Paleolithic ancestors.
For me, Primal Blueprint was a real game changer, which is why I’m determined to get back on track.
What the heck is “primal?”
Primal lifestyle is very much aligned with paleo (pay-lee-o) or Paleolithic, a term used to describe a style of eating based on how our hunter/gatherer ancestors consumed food prior to modern-day farming, industry, and agriculture. [click to continue…]

Much like bacon, avocados, eggs, and grass-fed beef, medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil has transitioned from fad to fact in terms of what’s required of most modern primal lifestyles. For example, MCT oil is used daily in bulletproof coffee recipes, smoothies, and salad dressings.

Obviously, I broke up the routine a little bit today. I actually wasn’t that hungry and knew I wasn’t going to have time for a workout, so I skipped a big breakfast and lunch. I also made a primal eggplant to bring over my dad’s house for his birthday. The major difference with this eggplant parm and typical eggplant parm is substituting bread crumb with ground flax. I mix my flax with grated Parmesan cheese and fresh chopped parsley. The flax provides an earthier, slightly nuttier flavor that works really well with the eggplant. I’ll post a recipe soon.
Today was the first day I had to make a real effort to skip out on good eats like fried mozzarella sticks, BBQ chicken wings, and ice cream cake. But, after eating the eggplant parm, I was pretty full, so it really didn’t bother me that much. Guess I’m starting to adjust to the lifestyle a bit.
