Plastic-Free July Eco-Challenge, Day 30: Cavemen Didn’t Eat With Plastic

I was hoping to share some enormous news with everyone by now. Unfortunately, as life occurs, I’ve hit a small snag and will have to wait just a LITTLE bit longer to make it official.

Many of you know I’ve been working on my newest project, ZooFit Safari. It seems like I’ve been working on this project forever. Well, two years.

Join Me On a Safari for Your Health

This project is just an amazing experience to me. If you’ve ever wondered which diet, exercise program, or healthy habits will give you the most bang for your buck, this book is for you. I often tell people the best diet is the one they can sustain. The best workout style is the one they will do long-term, preferably the rest of their lives. If you want to discover which ones work best for you, take a Safari.

ZooFit Safari is divided into 5 separate weeks. Each week you explore new eating lifestyles, workouts, and healthy habits. YOU get to choose which ones are right for you. The best part about the adventure is that all our healthy choices are connected to conservation. And I show you exactly how.

Plastic-Free Safari

Since we are in Plastic-Free July (for a couple more days, at least), let me share with you an example of what you can find on the ZooFit Safari. Week 4, Paleo week, delves into eating unprocessed and whole foods. I teach readers how to shop the perimeter of the store to get their food, and to avoid excessive plastic packaging. All the recipes for the week involve foods you can get without plastic. Some ingredients need extra effort to avoid plastic wrap, but they are all achievable.

We don’t just discuss eating and working out on the Safari. I give you tools to make all aspects of your health and well-being as green and sustainable as possible. For the ZooFit Safari’s Week 4, I teach you how to Green Your Hygiene, and avoid plastic in your bathroom, too.

To me, eating like a caveman means eating without plastic. Whether you are making a killer sweet snack or a delicious dinner, I give you all the tools you need for a perfect week. Try my most popular recipes for the week yourself, and let me know what you think.
