Hello and welcome to my Spark page! My name is Dana after the Greek Goddess Danae of Argos. I am starting afresh after years and years of abusing my body with over processed, artificial, greasy, sugar laden foods, (if one can call it food); and a sedentary lifestyle. My chosen path is adopting The Primal Blueprint; a paleolithic diet for modern society.

To start, I'm first going to develop the habit eating at home. So whatever foods I can create with relative ease and simplicity, I will eat at home. Next I will slowly start incorporating more whole foods and eliminate the processed sugars.

I happened across Mark's Daily Apple when researching information about the lifestyle of early humans. At first I was rather annoyed that a fitness site kept showing up in the results. I passed it off as a site to help body builders build muscle. Then one article caught my attention. I don't even remember what it was about but I do remember being at once intrigued, so nearly two hours later of reading article after article, I was convinced to purchase the book "The Primal Blueprint". After reading the book, every piece of which rang with truth, I finally had found a lifestyle that embraces what I already knew deep down inside. Understanding how our bodies evolved, and knowing the relatively short amount of time we have been processing food since the dawn of agriculture, it makes sense that we have the overwhelming amount of health problems that we do. In this modern world we are fully capable of adopting a primal way of eating and integrating it into our own schedules and what works for us. We are encouraged to do our own research and find whole foods that work for our own unique bodies. While we have many similarities, it is understood that while the same food might work for one person, that same food won't for another person. Which is also why

It is simple: eat meat, fish, vegetables, fruit, nuts, seed, healthy fats, move around a lot at a slow pace, lift heavy things, sprint occasionally, avoid poisonous things, get plenty of sunshine, use my mind, get lots of sleep, play, and avoid trauma.

Hi there - thanks for your ideas on the burgers, fries and even mashed potatoes. How did you know I LOVE those too? What I've been doing is having all the things I love in really small portions and "healthier versions" without all the "extras."
I just reintroduced mashed potatoes last week. I used Ore Ida Steam N Mash (russet) and 3/4 cup is only 80 calories. I added some horseradish, light sour cream and reduced fat bacon. My favorite thing ever for like 200 calories. I do LOVE mashed parsnips too. (Need to buy some soon.)
I look forward to connecting more often. And hearing more recipe ideas!
