Primal 21 Day Challenge: Day 18

Day 18:

For Day 18 your challenge is to plan a PRIMAL THANKSGIVING MEAL :)

The second part of tomorrow's  challenge is to listen to your body during your meal. We can still eat a big, primal feast for Thanksgiving and still come out feeling well, but we have to be listening to our bodies when we are starting to get full. The key is to listen and then stop ;) Afterwards, go for a family walk or throw a football or whatever active activities you enjoy doing for Thanksgiving. We can still live a normal, happy life by adopting the primal lifestyle!

Unfortunately, I did not have the time to try out primal Thanksgiving recipe's for you, but I hope this helps and I think I might try some myself:) I figure you will have protein {turkey or ham or another family favorite!} and vegetables, but here are some side dishes that you might want to make, too!

Thanksgiving Primal Recipe's:


Try this Chocolate Chip Cranberry Pecan Bread here.


Try this Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Pecans here.


Try this Bacon and Butternut Squash Risotto here.
