We ate a lot this weekend while we were away and we managed to do so with only a few concessions to the primal diet (and some of those we could have avoided if we had chosen to). It also helped to show our friend Richard how easy it is to eat primally. He’s keen to make changes to his diet but isn’t sure that he can go ‘cold turkey’ and completely ditch the grains. However he has identified lots of improvements he can make to his diet and I’m sure that he will. After all he’s successfully ditched the microwave after we explained, last time that he stayed with us, that we had ditched ours because microwaving your food destroys nearly all the nutrients in the food leaving you with ’empty’ calories. Once he feels the improvement in his energy levels and a loosening in the tightness of his belt brought about as a result of his new lifestyle he will be encouraged to continue the transition just as we were.
I ate one roast potato at lunch time. It wasn’t as crispy as it looked and I realised that in not eating roasties I wasn’t actually missing anything.
