Thursday Thoughts

I’m overwhelmed by the total badassery and thoughtfulness of you beautiful people who read my blog. Thank you for the emails asking where I am and if I’m OK. Yes, I’m OK! Pretty good, even. Potentially great! We’ve just been super-duper busy with photography for Well Fed 2. It’s kind of astonishing that it (a) takes so much time and (b) is so completely exhausting, both... read more

Balls! (Meatballs, That Is)

Meatballs are the most playful food you can pile on a plate. (And it’s pretty fun to say “balls,” too. Am I right?! Of course I’m right. Try it: Balls!) Meatballs can be so cute and round and friendly — and despite their humble appearance, they’re often packed with flavor explosions like spices and seeds, or doused in a luscious sauce that inspires licking the plate. Today,... read more

Monday, Man

This morning, after my meditation with the barbells — and a metcon cashout that included rowing which totally kicked my butt — I had all kinds of big ideas about the truly excellent blog posts I was going to write for you. First up, a recap of my workout that would inspire you to hit PRs and feel like your metcons are effortless. (Really!) Then, a recap post of the things I’ve learned about... read more

Heart-Stirring Stir-Fry

Sure, you can celebrate Valentine’s Day with something chocolatey (like dairy-free mousse or grain-free fudge bombs) — and I 100% approve. But you can also show the truest form of love with some badass beef and vegetables. Nothing, and I mean nothing, says I adore you more definitively than a meal that’s delicious and healthy. (These adorbs valentine cards from Nom Nom Paleo are a close... read more

Strength Monday 2/11/13 (w/ Bonus Twist)

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. Come on, Baby! Let’s do the twist. My max set of overhead presses proved a little tough on Monday, and without thinking about it — and to avoid defaulting to a push press — I... read more

Naturally Delicious?

Did you hear that? It was the sound of me bashing my own skull against my coffee table. There I was, sipping Bengal Spice tea, eating breakfast (salmon cakes, broccoli), and watching the Today show. Waking up, saying hello to the day. Then along came a commercial for Coffee-Mate Natural Bliss All-Natural Coffee Creamer. Given that the standard Coffee-Mate ingredient list looks something like this —... read more

Rants & Raves 2/9/13

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

Strength Friday 2/8/13 (w/ Bonus Butt Ball!)

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. How Low Can You Go? When I mentioned last week that I wasn’t sure I was getting low enough on my back squats, a helpful reader reminded me that at CrossFit gyms, the coaches... read more

Strength Tuesday 2/5/13 (w/ Bonus Bear)

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. Grin Grimace and Bear It Not this bear: Or this bear: Or this bear: Nope. I mean a bear like this: I mean the deadly Bear Complex. In case you’re not familiar, it’s a... read more
