This recipe suggests serving it with rice or pasta to make it complete, but I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s just fabulous all on it’s own with a side of salad or asparagus!

One of the biggest challenges I have in maintaining a paleo/primal diet is creating variety in my diet. Enter the 8-week Paleo Meal Planner. Love it! It’s one of the bonus offers that comes with the Paleo Recipe Book offered here.
It’s even got some scrumptious treats to try!

The first few days of resuming my sugar free, starch free diet are always the most difficult.
The secret is eating. Eating lots.
When my sugar pump has been primed, all I can think of is eating sugar and starch. And I find myself hungry and craving carbs a lot. To combat this craving I eat high fat, high protein foods with lots of flavour… and vegetables. I also drink plenty of fluids and take my vitamin/mineral supplements.
Today I enjoyed
Along with salad, and chai tea. I’m not done eating yet, since I’ve not met my protein requirement for the day, I’ll likely fire off a western omelette before the day is out.
The secret is in the planning…and the pantry purging. You can only eat the foods you have on hand, so make sure you do a good clean sweep of any left over holiday treats and pick up the appropriate groceries for successful transition to Primal Blueprint diet.
How do you reset your diet when you’ve had a period of slack eating?

The holidays can be a difficult time to maintain healthy eating. There are tons of yummy indulgences to tempt even the strictest of clean eaters. I’m no exception!
I have to say that compared to past years I was much more moderate in my consumption of sweets and starches. But there’s something about stuffing and cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie and Quality Street chocolates that just say Christmas! And I enjoyed every bite of them. But now it’s time to refocus my efforts on clean eating and healthy living.
Something that helps me refocus is doing some reading on the health benefits of the Primal or Paleo style of eating. When I first began eating this way I posted about how much better it made me feel. After a few weeks of being slack I’m starting to feel the effects of eating a Standard American Diet: bloating, low energy, wakeful nights, and general laziness. Well, that last one might just be because I’ve been on vacation and have been taking full advantage of my time off.
Today I’m going to begin a short series of entries reviewing some of the websites, blogs and books that inspire me to refocus and persevere with the Primal Blueprint eating style.
The Food Pyramid by Mark Sisson is a super reminder of the way we should be looking at food. The bottom of the pyramid is fish, fowl, meat and eggs, with vegetables one step up. I’ve printed a copy of this and put it on my fridge. Is it ironic that the magnet I used to attach it says “Eat a square meal every day, a box of chocolates!’
Mark’s Daily Apple is a super great source of inspiration when it comes to all things primal. Be sure to check it out!
