• Crossit Open 19.4 Nutrition Strategy

    Sorry this post is a tad late in the day, my brain has already packed its bags and is on its way to Mexico. ✈️ Woah! We’re already in week 4, can you even believe it?! In the past I’ve always been happily counting down the days until the crossfit open was over–it was a lot of pressure and I…

  • Classic Chili

    What the heck!? How have I not post a chili recipe yet?! What was I THINKING?! How were any of us able to make it through the winter without this recipe?! OMG. So this is a super classic chili. It’s well loved and it’s not trying to be fancy or extra, it’s just damn good the way it is in…

  • 19.3 Crossfit Open Nutrition Strategy

    This is the weirdest open workout I’ve ever heard of. It’s like the worst chipper of all time. I’m way too tall (long-armed) and heavy to do 50 strict HSPU. I guess it’s fair since week 1 and 2 were totally in my favor that this week would be a total poo-poo fest. Oh well, let’s talk about food! 10…

  • Panang Curry

    Make the most out of this cold weather with a quick weeknight curry! This could honestly serve up to 5-6 servings if necessary. The only part of this that really takes a lot of time is the chopping. This also works well if you need to freeze it back and then reheat it later on. What an awesome versatile healthy…

  • 19.2 Crossfit Open Nutrition Strategy

    The fitness gods are really trying me hard during this open. Between last week (the rower’s dream) and this week (lifter love) I’m having to deal with some temptation that I didn’t think would be there. Crossfit waited for me to be top three females before they reduced the team size to 6. Then the next year they got rid…

  • 19.1 Crossfit Open Nutrition Strategy

    Can you believe it’s already here?! Well it is. HBCD is Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin. This stuff will be your best friend during the Open – or during any competitive crossfit event for that matter. I would highly recommend buying some, but if you’re on a tight budget then regular Dextrose will do a pretty good job as well. It’s…

  • Cheeseburger Soup

    This soup is instant-pot friendly, AIP friendly, and soul food friendly 🙂 You’ll just want to check your pickles to make sure there isn’t a ton of garbage in them. The Vlassic dill pickles we both know and love contain high fructose corn syrup which is super disappointing. Whyyyy-they aren’t even sweet!!!  NOTE: this recipe can totally be made with…

  • AIP

    AIP is the autoimmune protocol. It’s basically a really hardcore paleo diet that eliminates all potential autoimmune-disturbing foods for at least 30 days and then slowly adds them back to figure out what the individual is sensitive to. When you eliminate certain foods that could be causing problems, your body has the chance to heal itself. Here is a shortlist…

  • Pesto Sauce

    Gut health is SO trendy right now. (Gut health is the entire reason anyone would do AIP. It’s an immune protocol that is design to give your gut a break and let your body heal itself.) A happy gut is kind of my favorite thing. Seeing people transform their lives and set themselves up for a higher quality future is just…

  • 2-Ingredient Sweet Potato Gnocchi

    Another AIP-friendly recipe coming at ya! Get excited. It just means this recipe is super duper paleo and very likely to be happily and easily digested and used for fuel. I call it 2-ingredient because who counts salt? I don’t. It’s always in my pantry! Unless I ran out… This recipe does require a few extra steps but I promise…
