Here are three new flavors by one of my favorite Paleo food companies Paleo Meals To Go. They are a mother and son owned company, and they definitely fit the Primal Power Method way of life. The new flavors I review are:
- Caldera Chicken Curry
- Bedrock Beef Chili
- Butte Cacao Banana
Recently, I interviewed the creators of Paleo Meals To Go, Ty and Dawn Anderson. Paleo Meals To Go produces (Made in the USA) and sells freeze dried Paleo and Primal approved meals. For active people, especially those who are into the outdoors, most meals in this area are not Primal or Paleo friendly by a long shot. Not anymore with Paleo Meals to go, they are not only Primal and Paleo friendly, but taste incredible as well.
Gary Collins: Hey, this is Gary Collins, best selling author and creator of www.thesimplelifenow.com. I am here with Ty and Dawn of Paleo Meals to Go. Thanks for coming on today. I found out about your company in a very interesting way, through an associate in the Paleo Primal world.
After they told me, I got interviewed by someone else who had actually just tried your products like the week before. It was interesting timing. If you guys would, describe what your company is all about and what your products are to people who are unfamiliar with them.
Recently you have probably heard the term “Primal” used, most often interchangeably with “Paleo.” You might know a little about Paleo, but is it the same as Primal? If not, what are the differences between the two.
Primal – Is based on the Paleo diet, but with some tweaks and philosophical differences. The primary difference is that Primal is not a diet, but a lifestyle. It is the more holistic approach to health encompassing mind, body and sole. Primal is the melding of our ancient ways of eating, movement and engaging in mindfulness.
When it comes to the diet nuances, Primal believes in the primary eating concepts, but allows small amounts of organic preferably raw dairy products. In addition, Primal believes in eating fairly large amounts of saturated fats found in animal meats, dairy products and coconut oil.
What is important to understand is that Primal and Paleo, though not truly interchangeable, definitely play in the same playground. Can you be Paleo and Primal? Absolutely! I believe, though different, they coexist in the same genre and belief of optimal health.
The Simple Life Healthy Lifestyle Plan
In simple terms the secrets of health and longevity today are the same as they were thousands of years ago for our prehistoric ancestors. This idea is at the heart of my book The Simple Life Guide To Optimal Health: How to Get Healthy, Lose Weight, Reverse Disease and Feel Better Than Ever.
For many of us the New Year means starting or getting back on track in our health and fitness goals. I spend this part of the year navigating my newly packed gym, that was nice and quiet just the month before, now stuffed with people fighting the bulge. They have all the latest and greatest exercise gear and gizmos at the ready. Unfortunately the things they need for success cannot be bought at the Nike store or found in the latest Kim Kardashian article about how she really lost those extra 10 pounds…….yet again.
Thankfully, I do not have to wait long for my nice quiet gym atmosphere to return, as most of these newbies are no where to be found around the first week of February. Are you one of those people? I hope not, but being a realist I know you just might be. So what do we do about that yearly squandered goal of weight loss and renewed health? Below I will give you a couple simple tips to get you on track.
