Are you new to Primal Eating? Well, you’re not alone. Luckily, there are many resources available online and in the bookstore that will help you get started. Assuming you, the busy adult, don’t have time to spend the next few months studying the literature, here’s some basic guidelines to start with:
The following foods are primal and are fair game:
Meats, poultry, fish, eggs
Remember, the meats must be grass-fed/pasture raised. The poultry must be organic and free of any steroids and antibiotics. If you’re asking yourself, ‘Why’, then that’s a pretty good question. There’s a lot of scientifically-based theories and opinions for why Primal Eating is among the healthiest ways to eat. For now, all you need to keep in mind is that nature intended animals to eat a certain way and this is the way we should eat our foods.
This might seem like a lot of information right now but, trust me, it’s very easy to look for in the grocery store. One rule of thumb to remember is that grocery stores normally place all the fresh, organic foods and produce on the outer, perimeter aisles. Most of the processed foods you should try to avoid are normally stocked in the inner aisles. For now, start off with these simple guidelines and educate yourself on primal eating if you have a spare minute during the day.
