pSault Ste. Marie (or as we refer to it#8230;the Soo) is a small town in size but we definitely have a mighty spirit! What we also have, is a large community of crossfitters and with it comes a lot of paleo and primal eaters. When the Mark’s Daily Apple blog issued the 30 day primal challenge in early September, our friend Joe quickly facebooked everyone to see if any would commit. With the [...]

pGrokfeast Bloomington/Normal @ CrossFit Bloomington-Normal, IL,  September 24, 2011/p
pThe day started with a partner WoD. It was the gym#8217;s 2nd birthday along with one of our coaches birthday. The partner workout was 4 separate workouts with 4 minutes of work and 2 minutes of rest to be able to switch to next workout, and you had to switch partners each time. Worked out pretty well. One partner worked on one exercise while the other worked the second exercise and you couldn#8217;t switch until the partner was [...]

pOur Grokfeast technically started a couple of weeks ago. There we were, surrounding the lake in hopes that we had outnumbered them. And then it happened. Mom fought the battle and won. Unfortunately, that was it. Not another bite. When we finally gave up, we walked up the path to Grandma#8217;s, picked some apples for our pie, and gutted the fish. A couple of weeks later we tried again. This time the 3-year old veteran fisherman was [...]

pThis year we had a Grokfeast in and around in our own backyard. Though we had some grandiose plans for a Grokfeast at a local state park, the weather looked bad for this weekend, so we stayed close to home in case of rain./p
pThe participants were two families #8211; each with two young girls, including one exclusively breastfed (so primal!) infant and two still-nursing toddlers. There were: Craig, Audrey, Annika, and Natalie, and Matt, Adrienne, Joelle, and Rose. There was also an enthusiastic labradoodle, Otis./p
pOur Grokfeast was a wonderful family date #8211; [...]

pWhen we heard about the Grokfeast challenge, we were already in the midst of preparations for our 2nd Annual Yurtville Harvest Party. Since we attempt to live and eat primal and were already planning a party along those lines, it seemed like a fun idea to share our party with you and submit it for the contest./p
pAs you might guess from our party title, my husband Ben, son Solomon and I live in a yurt. We#8217;re located in Willamette Valley region of Oregon where we raise ducks, geese and chickens. Last year, [...]

pWe are professors of philosophy and theology, artists, musicians, a military nurse, a community organizer, a speech pathologist.  Some of us are already well-versed in Primal ways, others are just starting down the path. We come from three different countries and are all parents of small children. Most importantly, however, we are the kind of people who [...]

The Food in Front of You

It’s Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend, so today’s post will be short.
Tonight I’ll be baking and prepping a large, large amount of food. In planning for this momentous occasion I’m reminded of why Eat Stop Eat works so well.
Quite simply – The amount of food people consume at a meal is determined to a large extent by the amount of food placed on the plate in front of them.
This simple fact is part of the reason why women have such a hard time with weight loss – When I go to the restaurant with my wife, and we order the same item off of the menu, we get the exact same meal….even though she weighs almost 50 pounds less than me.
From the restaurant, fast food, dining out point of view, it’s definitely a ‘man’s world’ most portion sizes are too much for your averaged sized adult male, let a lone an [...]

Primal Texas Chili

pimg class=”alignright” title=”Texas Chili” src=”http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg158/MDA2008/MDA2010/texaschili1.jpg” alt=”texaschili1″ width=”320″ height=”202″ /All too often a bowl full of chili is an uninspired blend of ground meat and canned tomatoes overwhelmed by beans. Ask anyone who follows the a title=”Primal Blueprint 101″ href=”http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/” target=”_blank”Primal Blueprint/a and they’ll tell you that the a title=”Dear Mark: Beans and Legumes?” href=”http://www.marksdailyapple.com/beans-legumes-carbs/” target=”_self”beans/a are unnecessary, but ask any Texan and they’ll tell you that putting beans in chili is an absolute travesty. In Texas, a bowl full of beans has no right calling itself chili, even when ground meat is thrown in./p
pTexas chili doesn’t let anything get in the way of and distract from the two main ingredients, chunks of beef and chili powder. Hearty, heavily seasoned and ranging from a bit of heat to fiery-hot, this is the type of chili that’s so thick you almost need a fork to eat it. Outsiders say it resembles stew [...]
