Black Friday—Worker Bee Style

Photo frame on wooden background for design or montageGood morning, everyone. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving—however you chose to celebrate. Today, as previously announced, we’re upending  tradition (and our usual blog schedule) to do something different. On Tuesday, I shared alternatives to the customary Black Friday lines.

Today I’ve turned over the blog to some of our Mark’s Daily Apple, Primal Blueprint, Primal Kitchen, and Primal Health Coach “worker bees” who are generously sharing what they’re doing today to get outside and spend time with those they love.

“Suns out, buns out.” — Morgan Buehler



“Earlier this year my husband (and fellow Primal Worker Bee), Farhad, lost his father, so we will be honoring Mansour’s memory by participating in all his favorite activities—lots of good food, laughs, and family time out and about in San Fransisco. Wishing you lots of fun, love, and togetherness this holiday season!” — Liz, Farhad, & Maya Mostaedi



“Spending time with family during the holidays is such a joy. We are so fortunate to have my dad still with us, since his stroke last year. We cherish this time to get close and reflect on so many things we are truly thankful for.” — Feeling blessed, The Frustere Family



“The Taylors are back at Lindsay’s childhood home in Michigan where it’s coooold (compared to California anyway), so we are opting to unplug and unwind in good old-fashioned (indoor!) ways.” — Lindsay Taylor



“I live in the country, so not only am I not going anywhere near the mall on Black Friday, but I am committing to not even setting foot in the city! Instead I’ll take my two young horses for a leisurely walk down the road. It helps expose them to new sights, sounds, and smells—all of which are good training opportunities for a couple of untrained baby horses—and it’s an excuse for me to get a few miles of walking in.” — Erin Power



“I love spending time outdoors with friends and family! I consider it an important part of my wellness routine to get in some movement during the day outside, and I’ll definitely be spending Black Friday unwinding by hiking in the mountains/practicing yoga on the beach.” — Annie Martin



“There’s no better gift than waking up to *this* sunrise on the North Shore of Lake Superior. We’ll be hiking along the shoreline and relaxing in the cabin today.” — Jennifer Wannen

Have a great holiday weekend, everyone. I’d love to hear how you’re enjoying today. Take care.

Thanksgiving 2017

Happy Black Friday!! You will find me doing anything BUT shopping today. I don’t like lines, crowds, or shopping in general for that matter! I have plans for yoga, wine tasting, and some time in the country today though.

Thanksgiving Day breakfast – fuel up because the next meal isn’t until dinner!

We had a great Thanksgiving yesterday. My parents are here, and we did a low key dinner out at Thomas’s parents’ house.

The theme was Ninjas! At least for the youngest guests.

Mr. Mazen suggested his own bow tie for the dinner. Didn’t he look dapper!

We had oysters, a cheese board, and crab dip for an appetizer.

Thomas’s crab dip was epic!!

We ate so much crab did we had to take a break before dinner. The boys went exploring in the woods. T loved showing Mazen his old stomping ground.

Our Menu

Smoked turkey

Rutabega mash


Sweet potatoes

Cranberry sauce

Corn pudding

Green beans

Olive oil rolls


And for dessert – pumpkin and pecan pies from Paradox Pastry!

It was a lovely day of food + family.

What was the best thing you ate yesterday?
