• Cauliflower Mash

    Most of the time cauliflower has no business trying to imitate other foods. Especially carby ones. This stuff is a pretty good stand-in for potatoes, but not because it tastes exactly like them because it doesn’t. One time we tried to make cauliflower pizza crust and it was absolutely terrible. Just take my advice and save up your pizza cravings…

  • Italian-Style Meatballs

      FINALLY! It’s the meatballs I promised last week to go with your super delicious tomato soup! This is such a great meal if you’re looking for a lower carb dinner to get your ready for summer. I really hate the taste of super duper lean beef when it’s cooked into a patty/loaf/ball. It gets this squeaky texture and has…

  • Creamy Tomato Soup

    The open is over and you guys probably need some new recipes! How’s it going? Are you recovered yet? This was my first open to skip. It was weird, but my body is thanking me. I look forward to getting back to normal training soon! Gotta get ready for summer 🙂 Let’s talk about this tomato soup. It’s easy, it’s…

  • Crossfit Open 19.5 Nutrition Strategy

      Hola amigos. Greetings from Mexico!!!   At last, we have made it to the very end of the 2019 Crossfit Open! Congrats to everyone who has completed all of these workouts so far, and get excited to get that final push through one last event and then celebrate with sugar and fried things! So I had to completely make…

  • 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…
