Hello everyone in the blogosphere!
My name is Josh Singer and yes, while sometimes we will just toss up some primal bullshit for you as Max mentioned, we’re just two pre-college kids making a blog and seeing what happens. At this point, the direction of this blog is unclear, but what we both agree on one thing: staying primal in college is absolutely possible. If you stumble across this blog and are heading off to college take the following challenge on:
THE PRIMAL COLLEGE CHALLENGE
For 21 days, cut ALL grain products. This does not just mean pasta and pizza, it’s anything with gluten, so read those package labels carefully.
On top of this, replace all those empty bread calories with healthy, nutritious, leafy greens and colorful vegetables. Every meal should have a strong focus on vegetables. Throughout the week don’t be afraid to experiment with weird sounding veggies you may not have heard of before like leeks (because honestly who really knows what a leek is). If you’re living on campus, even the worst dining halls have some sort of vegetable selection.
Don’t forget the protein guys! Top your cruciferous creation with really any sort of meat, fish, chicken, pork, or what have you, that gives you some great protein. Eggs are also an egg…celent…source of protein. Check the below image for the primal food pyramid to follow:
So, what’s the main idea of this challenge: Instead of making a bee-line for the pizza/pasta bar, venture into the lonely salad bar and make a big ass salad packed with a ton of color and flavor.
Don’t give up in the first week! There will be times when you want to eat that bread, when you REALLY REALLY want to taste the lasagna. DON’T. Give it until the end of the 21 day period and tell me how you feel then. Remember that it’s up to you to do this challenge completely. No one is standing there telling you what to do, so take it upon yourself to really challenge yourself and GO PRIMAL!! grok on!
