The Primal Dana Monster (Intro)

On this blog I am going to share my journey,  my pointers, and best of all the simple joys of everyday primal livin!  I have been predominantly paleo now since September 2013 as part of a challenge given to me by my employer Natural Grocers. They gave small incentives for going grain free for one meal a day or slightly larger incentives for going grain free for the month. I chose the bigger challenge thinking that because I had already been gluten free for six years by that time that it would be an easy adjustment to make. I mean how much grain could I really be eating!?! Turns out that not only was I eating ALOT of alternative grains like rice and quinoa,   but all those grains were loaded with sugar!  With just making this one change, eliminating grains, I changed my life. I lost 23 lbs that month, went through grain/ sugar withdrawals that felt like a minor flu for two weeks, and ultimately began on the road to whole body and gut wellness. Thus began the journey that has become my lifestyle.  The way I eat has changed the way I think, the places I can and want to go to eat and otherwise adventure, and has helped me to positively influence the health and wellbeing of the people who are closest to me.  I am healthier and more energetic now than I have ever been before. “We are what we repeatedly do, therefore excellence is not an act, but a habit.”- Aristotle
