Food, Fun and Face!

Welcome to my blog! I'm starting this blog to add some spice to some of your kitchens! I follow a primal lifestyle which basically means I eat a whole bunch of vegetables, good meats, some fruit, nuts and seeds and a little dairy. I avoid eating all grains and try not to eat processed food and limit the amount of sugar I throw down my throat. Basically the name of the game is to eat REAL FOOD. Sounds simple right? But sometimes people find it hard to start to eat this way. So this blog is here to help you (and me) throw together some awesome tasty food . So please stay a while and get your creative kitchen juices flowing again!!

Spring Clean Challenge!

At the gym we have kicked off on the annual spring clean challenge.

For roughly 8 weeks we will all be trying to eat as cleanly as possible while adhering to a paleo/primal nutrition plan. And of course getting into the gym and training our butts off!

For this years challenge Kristy and I have decided that we will be keeping to a tight-ish budget for our food and drink bill each week.

After a little bit of research online about what the average income in NZ is and what would be the lowest average incomes in NZ, we decided to set the task of only spending $75 a week per person on food and drink.

This equates to just under $11 a day per person. Doesn't sound like much but we are hoping to show that it is more than enough. Too many times people say to me "It's far too expensive to eat healthily and to eat the way that you do". After this challenge we will try to prove all the nay sayers wrong!

Below is a quick video showing the food that we bought for the first week. Seeing as there are four of us at the flat, everyone has agreed to the $75 limit a week. So for four people for the week we have $300 to spend on food.


So stay tuned for some new recipes and a few videos to show you all the awesome things you can make on a budget!
