Once I arrived in Bali it took me a few days to get myself sorted out and ready. As I am staying for a while I didn’t want to commit to a place without seeing it so I took a leap and came here with no real accommodation set. That meant hotel hoping for a few days, which was fine as I ended up finding a lovely little Villa in a nice town for a decent price. Then me and my loyal friend and helper Rudi started to meet with videographers and photographers to document my work. This is not a vacation folks, this is work, but it’s my passion and I love it so it’s fun not really work. And it is all up to me to make this a blast or a bore, which is the way it should be. I am producing and editing all of this alone and I have no fear to do so.
The bottom line, why am I doing this?
I want to show how you can live an amazingly fulfilling healthy, happy and fit life living the PRIMAL LIFETSYLE full of interesting variety wherever you are. I happen to be in Bali as it is my second home. I wish to educate and hopefullypersuade as many as I can to join this wonderful lifestyle and become a healthy and happier person all around. None of this is magic nor is it difficult. It simply requires your will to change and invest in yourself and become fit, achieve ideal body composition and an abundance of energy. This program is not about body building or competing for looks, this is about what’s best for your body, mind and heart and Health! Pumping iron hard-core every day and running marathons people is not healthy! Noooo it will kill you early.
MY MISSION here in Bali is to visit as many cool, creative, authentic and inspiring places to share with you, because I want to get close to the best sources of health. I will be creating work-out and food plans along the way, plus highlighting stand out businesses or organisations, as well as handing you local insider advice for food, best resorts, tours, where to go and not to go. As I am very into fitness, I have made it a priority to mingle with the local scene and I have found some awesome places that I will be sharing with you.
My work here will impact and help a lot of people, plus I will try my best to bring ecologically sound companies into view and support the local community.
That being said, the story here will unfold over the next 2 weeks and I will be posting video and photos every other day. I hope you like it share it and stay tuned.
Turned out to be more magical than I had hoped for. I visited this stunning Temple of Lempuyang and was amazed. Whereas I am interested in these cultural sites, I heard there were thousands of steps at this place. So my thinking was, awesome, I can go and run the steps… I can’t run normally because of my titanium knee, but running steps is ok as its so much lower impact. We arrived I loved the place with all it’s majestic beauty and I did my sprint session workout there and had so much fun. The tourists were looking at me as if I were mad as were the guides, but they soon found it all funny.
We hiked the mountain to see as many of the temples after but the weather didn’t cooperate and sent us fog. Sadly we did not make it to the top. I will be back.
Pura Luhur Lempuyang is like several other temples in this list one of Bali’s most important religious places. Like Besakih, Tanah Lot etc it’s also one of the island’s nine directional temples with the function to protect Bali and the Balinese from evil spirits. It is also one of the six temples that are dedicated to the supreme God, Sang Hyang Widi Wasa. The six are the temples of the world, also called sad kahyangan. The temple is never really crowded. So if you are fit and ready for a challenge that gives you a very special reward in return, this temple should be high up on your list of things to do on Bali.

EAST BALI CASHEWS
On my first evening in Bali I walked into a supermarket to buy some food and stumbled upon this gem of a product and company – EAST BALI CASHEWS, founded by Aaron Fishman. As us Primal Lifestyle peeps love nuts, especially Cashews, I was in luck! As it is now my mission to uncover and write about the gems of this World, by the next day I had set up a meeting with their head of Nutrition, Arianne Kreger. What a wealth of knowledge, wow!
I spent the next 2 hours learning how Cashews are processed and little did I know how much work goes into this. All EBC Cashews are sourced from 100% local organic farmers and they then process the Cashews by hand and love 100% organic with no chemical processing, all the way to being ready to eat.
I believe there are now 8 or 9 flavours and more to come along with OAT FREE granola folks!!! So yes I enjoyed some granola for the first time in a year!
