Mark Sisson’s Daily Apple brings us some great ‘Primal’ Thanksgiving day recipes

Given it’s Thanksgiving week, we thought we’d devote Monday to the big menu. (Check back tomorrow for this week’s Dear Mark!) Yup, we’re taking on the mother of all carb-laden holidays, and we aim to please. The truth is, you absolutely, positively can make Thanksgiving a primal success, and you needn’t compromise taste or tradition to stay on track this holiday. No franken-foods (Can we say Tofurky?) or flavorless “health” concoctions here. We think Grok – as well as William Bradford – would be pleased, and we hope you are too. Happy Thanksgiving to all our American Apples. And for our international readers: even if you aren’t joining in on turkey day this week, we offer up these recipes as a great menu for any upcoming parties or holidays. Bon Appétit, everyone! . .

(Although I must warn you, you might want to only view this article after you have eaten a big meal, or if you are about to eat something. The pictures alone will make you hungry! -jj)

Some of you may know that everyone’s favorite Venezuelan Vixen Jenny V. is leaving us to live in Miami. I was really disappointed that we didn’t do a party for Trainer Nate, I don’t want that to happen again. We plan on sending Jenny off in style by having a special workout and party next Monday. So be ready for a great workout, and if you can stick around, some refreshments and good company. -jj

    I will try to make it Monday, I’m taking a class in Watsonville. Do we know a timeframe?

  • Jeremy Jones

    Party time will be around 6:30 or 7pm (The classes will just have to manage).

    I ‘attempted’ Lynne today as well.

    @195lbs (If I loose any more weight, I am going to be a super model).

    3/38, 3/20 on rings, 3/40, 3/35, then I quit because it was waaay too late and I have to do the 6am class (whuz I know).

    My bench was seriously suffering from doing 72 ring dips on Sunday. That being said, I have never been good at bench.

    I also forgot how hard pull up on rings can be.
