Vote for Moroccan Sirloin!

Who am I kidding? We all know that if you vote for my recipe it’s not really because of the steak — it’s because of the Fig-Pistachio Butter. It’s FIG-PISTACHIO BUTTER! (If you’re wondering what the devil I’m going on about, read the recipe and my original post about the contest.) Anyway, if you would be so kind, I would love your vote for Fan Favorite in the Sous Video... read more

Moroccan Sirloin w/ Fig-Pistachio Butter

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I was invited to compete in the Sous Video Paleo Recipe Showdown, sponsored by SousVide Supreme and TX Bar Organics. The deadline for submitting our recipes has arrived, so I can finally share what I cooked up in my kitchen — and then you guys get to weigh in by voting in a Fan Favorites contest. Voting starts tomorrow (!), so I’ll be sharing details on that as soon... read more

Strength Friday 1/25/13

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. Beat up… in a good way This week totally kicked my ass! This is week three of the Wendler 5/3/1 cycle, so it’s Heavy-Heavy — and I spent all of Wednesday and Friday on my... read more

Thursday Thoughts

Each of these thoughts really deserves its own blog post but between the photo planning and grocery shopping and cooking and dish washing (oh, my! the dish washing) and the annoying habit of wanting to sleep and eat and workout, I can’t produce a bunch of well -written blog posts, so this will have to do. Which is a very long-winded way to say: I’m so grateful for all of you and the gift of... read more

Strength Monday 1/21/13 (w/Bonus WHAT?!)

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. Wait? Today’s Wednesday?! That I’m posting my Monday workout on Wednesday should be a good indication of how my week is going. I can’t believe it’s Hump Day... read more

Well Fed 2 Survey

If you can spare, like, two minutes, we would really appreciate your feedback on a little survey. It’s only two questions — and if you answer it, you could win a copy of Well Fed and a pair of Well Fed knee socks. We’re picking your brains about binding preferences and recipe volume for Well Fed 2: More Paleo Recipes For People Who Love To Eat (scheduled to hit the world in October 2013)..... read more

Strength Friday 1/18/13 (w/ Bonus Hell Week)

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. The Week From Hell I’m so very happy it’s Friday because this week was grueling, frustrating, disappointing, exhausting, and, frankly, a total asshole. The yucky stuff that... read more

Gobblin’ Up Ground Turkey

I got an email from a reader asking why Well Fed doesn’t include any recipes for ground turkey. I hadn’t really thought about it until she asked, and then I realized I wasn’t cooking with ground turkey any more because I hadn’t found a good supplier. Sure, my regular ol’ grocery store (hola, HEB!) has Honeysuckle White and other national brands, but ew. That makes me... read more

2012: My Year In Books (Fiction)

(Get your “Reading is Sexy” mug, sticker, etc. here) It’s just as important that we feed our minds as it is to feed our bodies, and I like tucking into a book almost as much as stuffing my face with Chocolate Chili. Last year, I read somewhere in the neighborhood of 56 books, give or take a few I started and abandoned, and a handful of cookbooks I skimmed. I loved some of them. I felt... read more

Strength Monday 1/14/13 (w/ Bonus Handstands)

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. 2013: The Year of Pullups and Handstands In honor of my “You Are Here” intention, I’m not setting goals around pullups and handstands. Instead, just like I do with yoga... read more

Rants & Raves 1/12/13

Oh, the webbernet! It gets me all riled up with dire news and mainstream idiocy, then blammo! it hits me with something so awesome, it must be shared. Welcome to this week’s collection of Rants & Raves! Rants Even though I love the title “Rants & Raves,” I’ve been thinking about making these posts pure inspiration, avoiding negativity to focus on the positive. But then I... read more
