This series about Daily Primal Action began with the Morning routine. Originally the day was divided up into waking up, work, after work, and home time. However, getting to work and a sleep routine will be quite larger topics, that these will now be included as their own blogs.
Primal Action is a three tiered approach to health and wellness. The three pillars are: fuel- what you consume, fitness- your movement and mobility, and focus- mental clarity and habits
Rest comes in three basic forms: relaxation, recuperation and sleep. Maximize your output on a day to day basis by ensuring you take the time to care for yourself.
Primal fitness does not have to be overwhelming. But it should be targeted in the sense that you are aware of what you are doing, how often you should be doing it, at what level of intensity, and what your own personal needs are. The basic premise behind primal fitness is: mobility, strength and high intensity.
Food lies on a spectrum. On one end is nutritional, enjoyable, healthy food. At the other end is food like products. In between lies food items like: has nutritional value but can cause inflammation, sweet and tasty but can spike insulin levels, healthy food sprayed with pesticides, and animals raised in poor conditions and improperly fed. Let’s examine this spectrum and see how we can make our best choices.
Dining out can be a challenge for people who want to eat primally. Chefs are trained in the culinary arts that encompass wide range of dishes catering to a broad spectrum of people’s tastes.

Previous blogs have been about what is means to live a primal life. That life is defined by your fuel intake, fitness regime, and focused intent. We have also examined fuel, which is based off of food, water, the air we breathe, sunlight, rest and supplements.
I have previously discussed the Standard American Diet (SAD), which is becoming the normalized world diet. It is based off of the four food groups- grains, dairy, meats and alternatives, and fruit and vegetables. There are varying degrees for this diet based on this pedagogy. However, this is not the only diet available to you.
The next few blogs will focus around food, shopping, recipes, and dining. First we begin with talking about how to eliminate Standard American Diet Foods1, other wise know as the SAD diet.
