Of course, there's lots more to it, and you can find all kinds of good info at Mark's Daily Apple. For me, "primal" was a whole new concept. I've always, always been a total and complete sugar/carb junkie. As in, seriously addicted. I have been known to eat an entire loaf of frenchbread for a meal. The benefit of Mark's diet is that it gives you lots of energy without ever giving you the feelings of being bloated, sluggish and "weighed down" like processed carbs do. It's actually amazing to discover how fab you feel when your blood sugar is consistently stable, rather than spiking up and dropping down like a Magic Mountain rollercoaster. For me, the struggle -and the reason why I sometimes lapse back into "bad" eating- is the boredom factor. Well, and the irresistable lure of warm focacia. But now that I'm back on the wagon -so to speak- I'm very excited that the primal diet is gaining in popularity and lots of yummy new recipes are surfacing. In fact, my friend Chris has found a delicious recipe for gluten-free, low-carb cream cheese pancakes on Pinterest. Cream cheese pancakes. Oh yeah, I said it. Hallelujah! They are just as tasty and satisfying as the real-deal (maybe better!), so of course I had to share the recipe with you!
- 4 oz cream cheese
