Here is my take on the Primal Paleo App. Personally, I enjoy to cook and am always on the lookout for Paleo recipes that I can add to my family’s repertoire, so that is what originally drew me to this app during my search.
The “Live Primal” tab is broken down into four categories: Primal, Survival, Eating, and Exercise. Each category offers a good overview of the primal lifestyle with tips and suggestions for primal/paleo living.
The “Primal Foods” section provides an elaborate list of foods, separated into three categories (Meat & Fish, Fruit & Veg, & Other), all in alphabetical order, which I love. When you choose your food type you will then get a list of recipes. While the recipes were occasionally a little lacking in number, there were plenty of great ideas for the major meats & fish. I cook a lot of chicken, so there are a lot of recipes that I am looking forward to trying out! The Recipe tab also offers an alphabetical listing of all the recipes in the app, which was helpful.
The “Exercise” tab has movements broken down into three categories: Pebble, Rock, and Boulder. Some resemble our theories on movement and work-outs, and some do not. Personally, I wouldn’t have a need for this section since I like to follow the regimen on WODatHome.com. The app shows some of the movements used in our WODs with a few cues and reminders. For example, deadlift: keep your back straight and push through your heels.
Finally, the “Resources” tab gives you an option to upgrade the app in order to access more recipes. Not sure if that option is worth the extra $0.99, but if you find it helpful, please share your experience with us!
Overall, this is a great resource app for those of you who are taking a Paleo approach to living. You can download the app here:
