Just let me know if you've heard it enough, but it really is so simple to eat the right way. Now throw in some sensible and regular exercise and watch what happens.

Chris from Conditioning Research wrote a fantastic post on it. Yours truly even got some nice link love :-) But the point is really that you don't have to get all crazy worried about what modality brings the best results. Keep it simple and keep at it. Eat real food, do a whole bunch of pushups, go sprinting, and you are 95% there.

How simple is this? Some fried eggs, a few strips of bacon and spinach.


And the same is really true for Feel Good Living. Keep it simple. Be a good person, treat EVERYONE with respect, be kind and loving and take care of your family.

Last night I watched an Andrew Zimmern episode where he spends time with the Kalahari in Botswana. Many primal/paleo blogs have posted on the Kalahari as they are one of the last true Hunter/Gatherer tribes. They are a wonderful people and I highly recommend you watch the episode. What really moved me was at the end of the show, Andrew asked the head shaman how to live a good life. He told him to "respect everyone, be nice, love your parents and you will have an easy life". Simple stuff right??


Forgot to take a picture, but try this one for simple. Feel Good Eating Crock pot Chicken.

1 whole chicken

1 large lime

4-6 cloves of garlic

1 yellow onion

1 sprig of fresh rosemary

2 sprigs of fresh oregano

1/4 cup evoo

1/4 cup white wine

1 tblsp garlic powder, paprika, chili powder, sea salt and pepper

Wash the chicken and pat dry. Cut up the lime in 4 pieces and stuff inside the chicken. Chop garlic, onion and herbs. Pour 1/4 cup of evoo and 1/4 cup of white wine in the crock pot. Add the garlic, onion and herbs and combine. Put the chicken on top and put the lid on the crock pot. Set to low and let it cook for 6 hours. (If you can, after 3 hours turn the chicken over, but you don't have to). Total prep time is really only 10 minutes, and I promise you, that you will be blown away by the flavor of this dish. Fresh herbs are crucial for this one. Do you grow your own herbs? I grow basil, oregano, rosemary, cilantro, mint and some small peppers. It's easy to do, and these herbs are very forgiving. If I can do it, you can do it ;-)

Off to the gym for some simple exercises and sprints. Have a great day and play nice ;-)

Oh I love that show - bizarre foods w/ Andrew Zimmern. Good stuff. And great post btw =)
It's kind of ironic how simplicity is something that we have to strive for in today's society. Primal living certainly helps to encourage it.It's refreshing that you have the theme throughout your blog as well!

I've loved his Bizarre foods show for a while now, The new show hasn't dissapointed either. Between Zimmern and Bourdain, I really don't watch any other tv ;-)
