Strength Monday 03/26/12 (w/ Bonus Befuddlement)

In my quest for lean superhero-ness, I’m following the Wendler 5/3/1 strength training program. Twice a week, Dave and I are hitting the craptastic gym in our Converse to lift heavy and crank through a mini-metcon. What is happening?!

Coconut-Almond Green Beans

Tomorrow, I’m doing a cooking demo at PaleoFX along with from Michelle and Kim from Caveman Cuisine. I chose Coconut-Almond Green Beans to share because this side dish is not only luscious and velvety, it’s ready in under half an hour, so it works equally well on weeknights and weekends — and if you add cooked chicken, pork, or shrimp to it when the beans are tender, it becomes a one-skillet... read more
