So my wife and I drove for hours and hours to and fro over the Thanksgiving holiday. Side bonus: we listened to Clan of the Cave Bear. Now it’s a day later, and I feel the need to do a little post turkey day autopsy.
1, I did a fairly good job of staying 80% primal while on holiday. The drive up and back was pretty easy since we had our travel foods. The more difficult party was while we staying at my parents’ house. We didn’t have total control of the food supply, especially when we ate out.
2, Even with the 80% primal food, I was definitely feeling sub-optimal.
3, I can feel my body detoxing still after a day of being home. Our regular foods taste great and are helping me get back on track. my digestion still isn’t as good as it normally is, but I expect that will take care of itself over the next coupe days.
All in all, it’s good to be home!
Another bright side of the trip was stopping by a food co-op in Harrison, Virginia (might have been Harrisonburg, I don’t remember exactly) and buying some ground beef from Joel Salatin’s Polyface Farm. I made some burgers from it today and they were delicious! The beef tastes “light” if that makes any sense. I’d say the beef is a touch better than the ground grass fed beef I get at my local farmers market.
