Eating by way of the Primal lifestyle is really second nature at this point. Meat, poultry, eggs, vegetables, nuts, butter, extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, occassional small amounts of dairy, and my weekly piece of 85% dark chocolate – that’s the name of the game, and from it I’ve made a lot of tasty ...

The Most Meaningful Thing You Hope to Accomplish In Life
2011-01-16 17:21:00
Meaning, and ‘most meaningful’, are all very subjective terms. Pretty much everything we see, hear, and feel is open for interpretation, and skewed by our past experiences.
