Two big things going on today. First off, there’s the Performance Nutrition Town Hall meeting at CrossFit Rubicon – make sure you check out the website, send Chef an email with a question about diet/nutrition, and RSVP on the facebook page. Beyond that, as long as you bring something to sit on, you’ll be all set for a great time. Don’t forget…20 participation points to anyone who attends.

The other big thing is that your Paleo logs are due today. Email them to Danielle in order to stay in the running for prizes.

I hope everyone has a great week, and we’ll see you at the gym!

    Happy Monday!

    Paleo-Friendly Bacon and Sausage
    For those of you who are missing bacon and sausage (because they are not really Paleo), I wanted to share that I finally found a brand that we can eat. Applegate Organics carries turkey bacon and sausage that doesn’t have the sugar, salt and unpronounceable ingredients found in so many other brands. It’s a little pricey, but it’s great for an occasional treat. I found it at Mom’s Organic Market in Rockville.

    For those of you who want a quick but fresh breakfast, I suggest this type of microwavable egg pan: http://www.amazon.com/Nordic-Ware-Microwave-Muffin-Breakfast/dp/B001B2MRSE.

    I’ve actually had mine for a few years (I got it at Williams Sonoma, I think) and use it almost every day. I was skeptical at first about microwaving eggs, but they turn out really well. I just beat up two eggs and add ground turkey, shrimp, veggies and/or spices and microwave it for two minutes. The eggs turn out like those you would normally put on an egg mcmuffin sandwich. Just an easy way to have fresh eggs every day rather than heating up something pre-made.

    Spinach and Garlic

    In a pan, heat 1T of coconut oil on med-high heat. Throw in 3 cloves of minced garlic. Stir for one minute. Add half a 3-lb bag of frozen spinach and 1/2 c. of water. Stir then cover. Let cook for 6-8 minutes, or until the spinach is thawed and most of the water has evaporated.

    Hey everyone, I found two really interesting things this weekend that I will be doing and thought some others might be interested. They are two races, the metro dash is basically just an extended version of the courses that Tai sets up in the gym from time to time and the Rugged Maniac is a shorter version of the Tough Mudder. These seem like an awesome way to put everything we do in the gym into action, have fun and get those competitive juices going. So if anyone wants to form a team, ride together or whatever let me know. Here are the websites.

    I will be doing the one in DC (obviously)
    I will be doing the one in Richmond.

    Jeff – Those look awesome! Have you done one of them before?

    I’m still a little disappointed with the taste of my steam beef and broccoli lunch yesterday at a Chinese restaurant. On the drive home Lindsay and I were brainstorming ways to make Paleo dining-out more attractive. After we got home, a few searches revealed a soy-sauce alternative called Coconut Aminos:


    Unfortunately I can’t find any stores in Maryland that carry this product. Internet orders only for those of us in the DC Metro area. I’ll let you know how it works-out when we receive our first bottle.

  • Jeff

    I have not done one yet, so these will be my first.

  • Chase

    Jeff I might try and get in on one of those with you. Also, there is a warrior dash in the spring time. http://www.warriordash.com I was thinking about doing this. Heard its a good time.

  • Brittany

    I did the Run-a-muck (http://runamuckfestival.com/) and the warrior dash last year and loved it! I would definitely be interested in doing one or more of those races this year… I’ll work on my running before then so i won’t slow y’all down!
