As a lot of you know I’ve shied away from cooking meat. Not the basics, or the simple stuff, but I do get intimidated with a nice cut of steak. Many years ago George Forman was my God. He guided my way through chicken, chicken, chicken and oh yeah, a few peanut butter and apple [...]

What Happened To Lefty?

A couple weeks ago I went off the radar.  I wasn’t CrossFitting, I wasn’t cooking, and I wasn’t posting.  A bunch of stuff has been happening, and here it is in no particular order … For the last couple months of CrossFitting, my body wasn’t getting the results I wanted from the workouts, I felt [...]

Power Greens

It’s no secret that I love kale. I love it in salads and I loved it cooked. So, I was super stoked to find a new kale mix at Trader Joes! My old favorite kale mix was made by harvest sensations, but they changed things lately, by adding in a salad dressing package. So, I [...]
