Paleo Day Seven: Prather Ranch
What I am learning about the paleo diet: I can't do it. It is just too restrictive. I'll muddle through for week two, but I don't seem to be able to do much better than 70% compliance. It certainly has shown me that I could eat way more fruit and veggies than I would have believed.
Above is Prather Ranch Meat Company. Really excellent products, which I highly recommend. You can find Friend of CrossFit, Scott, at the Lake Merritt Farmer's Market on Saturday Mornings.
