Primal 21 Day Challenge: Day 7

Day 7:

Tomorrow is Day 7! That means only 14 days left of the challenge. I hope everyone is starting to feel and see the benefits of living a primal lifestyle:)

On Day 3 I challenged you all to try new primal approved meals for the rest of the week. I hope this gave you the opportunity to find a new favorite meal! That being said, I also mentioned that on Day 7 you would SHARE this new meal {and other favorite primal dishes if you'd like} for a big Sunday dinner with your family and/or friends! So make a run to the store today for any last minute items for tomorrow's primal meal:)

I have shared a few of my own favorite dishes this past week with you and I hope this has inspired you to try new recipes or spin an old favorite recipe into a primal one!

For Day 7 take a REST DAY... no strenuous physical activity. Spend meaningful time with your family by taking a walk or playing a game. You could also take this day to have some personal time to yourself: read, write in your journal about your primal experience thus far, or nap;).

Do you remember part of your challenge today for Day 6? You are to forage in a restaurant and eat primally. Last night my husband and I stopped at Moe's Southwestern Grill and found grass-fed meat to eat:) I got the Close Talker salad with steak and other delicious veggies! Good luck on your foraging today!


Meal/Snack Ideas:

Breakfast- this was my breakfast this morning...


Lunch- on Sunday's I go for the leftover's! Heat up leftover meat, soups, or you could even do a shepherd's pie by throwing all your leftovers into a casserole dish and bake it {it sounds weird, I know, but it is good!}

Dinner- beef round eye seasoned with  salt and pepper baked in the oven with a side of veggies {my husband made this a few days ago and it was TO DIE FOR!}; fry some chicken and veggies with a side of fried plantains in extra virgin olive oil and sea salt...another dish my husband made!


Dessert:
Hot Almond Milk
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 2 tsp 100% natural honey
  • 1 tsp natural vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
Put almond milk in pot over low-medium heat. Stir until milk is hot and foaming around edges. Add honey, vanilla extract and cinnamon. Stir together and serve hot in large mug.
