Slow Food Nation

Slow Food, a growing grassroots movement has picked up momentum over the last few years. The slow food movement was founded in 1989 in response to the fast food companies taking over the nation and the world.  Today they have grown to over 100,000 members spanning 132 countries.

Become a Spice Girl…or Boy?!?

In my experience, I’ve found that balancing and going Paleo will work for pretty much anything. Hydration is extremely important and often overlooked. Here’s what I ate 30 minutes prior to last Saturday’s game: 12 Asparagus Spears 2 Egg Whites/1 Egg Yolk scrambled 3 Silver Dollar sized indian turkey patties w/tomato sauce 1 apple 5 tbsp olive oil mayo I tweaked my typical breakfast by roughly doubling my fatContinue Reading >>


As long as I could remember, white rice has always been a staple that accompanied all main courses… that was until Crossfit came around.  In order to perform better, I knew I had to eat better.  Adios white rice, hello brown rice.  Right?  Wrong.  Although rice is gluten free, it’s not the carbohydrate that Paleo folk choose to consume.  Until now. I bring you the perfect substitute for any dish that can be eaten rice.  Its versatility allows you to eat it with just about everything. Try it with your favorite Paleo Curry Dish or even with a piece ofContinue Reading >>
