A New Year's Primal Challenge: Day 16

Day 16:

Apparently, I forgot to hit PUBLISH again! {I've never done this in my other challenges and here I did it TWICE...}

  1. Take play breaks throughout the day! This could include getting off of your home computer to play on the swings with your kids for 15 minutes or getting up from your work desk to throw a frisbee with a coworker outside for 5 minutes or whatever else your heart desires to do for fun :)
  2. Try a new primal recipe! Find a recipe I have put up on the blog, google primal recipe's, go to marksdailyapple.com to find a new recipe, or find a delicious recipe and make it primal!
{These are a couple of my siblings PLAYING while on our hike in Utah.}

If you're feeling really energetic after all your play breaks then go ahead and try another movnat.com workout!

Meal/Snack Ideas:

Breakfast- cut the top off of a large tomato, core the inside, and put in oven at 400 degrees for 5 minutes or more until tomato softens slightly. Sauté ground meat, onions, or anything else on hand and then put in the tomatoes after they come out of the oven. Crack an egg or two on top of the meat/onions and place in oven to broil until egg is set. 

Lunch- make a shrimp coconut milk soup.

Dinner- place whole chicken in crockpot with veggies: carrots, celery, onions, or leeks. Salt and pepper. Fill crockpot with water leaving 2 inches of space at the top of crockpot. Add some lemon juice and vinegar. Turn on crockpot to cook for about 6 hours and turn chicken once halfway through.  When cooked, let chicken cool a bit and then pull apart the meat in chunks and serve with the cooked veggies!

Snacks- guacamole and chips {sweet potato, zucchini or another primal chip}.
