Monday - Day 8

How was your primal meal with your family and friends?!
Here was our meal tonight:

Recipe for the main dish below...

Day 8 Agenda:
  1. Complete a very short, yet intense, tabata air squat workout. A tabata workout is usually 8 sets of a specified movement being performed for 20 seconds with 10 seconds of rest in between. It is an amazing workout that you can get done in just minutes! Below is a large group of people performing this tabata style workout, so feel free to do it along with them or you may do it on your own:) Count your total reps and document.


Meal/Snack Ideas:
Breakfast- mixed eggs, spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes poured in cupcake pan(s) and baked.

Lunch- find hot dogs/sausage that are antibiotic/nitrite/nitrate free and dab primal approved condiments on top {read those labels if not making your own condiment!} Add a side of greens.


Dinner- NY Strip Steak with an Avocado Tomatillo Dressing
My husband made the steak on the stovetop and this was the Avocado Tomatillo dressing...

Ingredients:
  • 4 tomatillos, husked and diced
  • 1 large avocado, diced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 jalapeƱo, diced
  • handful of cilantro chopped finely
  • 1 tsp of salt
In a blender {or stick blender or food processor} mix ingredients together until smooth. That's it! Then pour on top of your steak:)
We then had a side of cucumber/tomato salad and sweet potato chips. Recipes for the side dishes to come!


Dessert- have you made/tried coconut milk ice-cream? Literally, just coconut milk and coconut pieces. Check your labels, or better yet, make your own!
