Welcome to my labor of love and website, Primally Inspired! My name is Kelly and I started this site as a means to share recipes and tips to my friends and family members who have also seen success from the ”just eating real food” lifestyle, also known to some as Primal, Paleo, or Clean Eating.
I am so excited about how much this website has blossomed in such a short time because of all the love from readers like you. I am incredibly honored that you choose my website and some of my recipes when creating meals for yourself and your family. It’s my pledge to you that I will always post wholesome, real food meals – never any processed food, grains or refined sugars. Most of my recipes are already dairy free, but on the rare occasion it includes dairy, I will always give a dairy free version.
For more information about me, how I started out with the Primal Lifestyle and how it’s been successful for me, please read my story here: http://www.primallyinspired.com/53/
I love to cook and enjoy experimenting in the kitchen. I believe in a ”farm to table” way of eating. I shop often at my local farmer’s market and love supporting my local farms and other local businesses and their families. My highly successful recipes will be posted here so that you can enjoy them, too. My husband is the biggest food critic I know, so if he really likes a recipe, I know it’s a hit and is website worthy. My goal is for my posted recipes to be amazing. Not amazing for health food, but amazing, period. Most people are pleasantly surprised when I tell them, “there’s no flour in those” or “can you believe there is no added sugar to that?”
The other half of my website is dedicated to fitness and home workout routines. Health and fitness have been a priority in my life for as long as I can remember. I have always been an athlete and played college level athletics. Most recently I have been named a top nationally ranked athlete/racer, and have worked with numerous amazing trainers. Many people continue to ask what I do to stay in good shape and now I can point them to this website. The routines I post here are the exact same routines that I personally use. I stopped going to a gym a few years ago after I realized that the outdoors are a far better gym than I ever imagined. I love working out in nature and using logs, trees, jungle gyms, etc. for my equipment. I now say that jungle gyms are the best kind of gyms! Follow along with me on my fitness posts and I’ll show you why you don’t need a fancy gym or expensive equipment to get an amazing and effective workout.
My husband Zach and I live in a house right on the water in the beautiful state of Maryland. It’s a great spot for inspiration, as water always seems to get my creative juices flowing.
We live with our furry and funny rescue mutt named Bently, who swims every single day. Bently also thinks he is a human.
We all love spending as much time as possible outside enjoying God’s beautiful creation. Zach and I are both nationally ranked ATV racers, which takes up a lot of our time. When I am not racing around the country, I enjoy mountain biking, hiking, kayaking and interior design.
