I am interested in maintaining this blog in spite of the fact that I am not in the same place I was when we began back in 2012. Last year, it seemed it was about time we took it down, because I think we posted about twice all year, but something kept us from it. I like it here, I feel like this is where I can spill my mind to the public without blowing up people’s Facebooks.
Every time The Prime Pursuit posts something non-food related, we lose followers and that makes me sad. I know with blogging we are supposed to have a niche and stick to it. But, it turns out that while my passion for telling people about primal food has waned, my enjoyment of getting my thoughts on “paper” is still there.
The bottom line is that I just don’t want to be put in a box one way or another. I still eat healthfully as much as I can reasonably manage it in a house of seven people. I am sorry, but I bristled at being “the paleo lady” because I just don’t want to be restricted by any labels. I love ALL food. You’re going to see me downtown eating a fat cheeseburger with fries, because food categories and amounts don’t own me. One really nice thing about the Army lifestyle is leaving the old labels behind and starting fresh.
So here I am. I have five kids now. I have lots to say about that, and I want to discuss healthful living, intuitive eating, getting back on track with exercise after two back-to-back pregnancies, and the daily-discipline of sorting priorities. I hope you’ll stay with us in spite of the fact that I declared myself free from food-related trademarks.
I think we can keep our blog title, because don’t we all desire to remain in the prime of life…? I will still share primal recipes as I find them but will you forgive me if I post a cake recipe that has been made with AP flour? I have a good one, you need it in your repetoire!!
With humble honesty,
