Tuesday Tallies: Primal Menus & Movement
Welcome to Tuesday Tallies!
Below are day-in-the-life samples of the primal lifestyle. They’re not intended to be exemplary for everyone — just honest snapshots of what’s working (or not) for one Idaho farmgirl. Use them to get a feel for what primal living looks like on a daily basis, as a jumping-off point if you’re on the edge of taking the primal plunge, or as creative sparks for primal veterans.
Feel free to share your own tallies in the comments. We could all use a few fresh ideas!
