So, I've been drinking A LOT of bone broth lately, and it's delicious! More (or maybe equally) important, though, is the fact that bone broth is loaded with nutrients and has innumerable health benefits - from healthier, firmer skin to healthy bones (more on this later). Just to clarify, this is NOT the bone stock [...]

fat poppers…. and could a ketogenic diet be right for you?

Ketosis: a word of many meanings (but really only 1), a tool used for all kinds of tricks (from aesthetic changes to managing insulin levels, and everything in between), and in my opinion, an important nutritional lifestyle that everyone should try out at least once in a lifetime. Let’s start off by talking about WHAT [...]

Hey guys! First off, I have to tell you how excited I am about the launch of the new Certified CrossFit Trainer or L-3 coming out of CrossFit HQ (my real job, which I absolutely love). After a lot of hard work, today's CrossFit main site post finally announced this new certification with a beautifully [...]

I have spent this week so far doctor and hospital hoping, trying to figure out what the heck is going on with the herniated discs and all of the pain in my neck and head. I saw an awesome Neurologist yesterday, who was open to discussion, listened to my questions, and gave me some answers. NO [...]

chocolate zucchini bread and being a locavore

There is all kinds of hype around the whole organic movement. Is it something to buy into, or is it just another marketing catchword like "gluten-free" that doesn't necessarily hold any merit in terms of nutrient density? Well, my goal with this post is to help clarify, answer your questions, and hopefully, help you understand [...]

paleo butter shortbread cookies and the benefits of ghee

So I had the opportunity to try out a new clarified butter product called PALEO BUTTER, and oh boy was I impressed. As you guys know by now, I only post about products that I really believe in, and this is one of those products. This stuff tastes like the best butter you''ll ever try (the [...]

The process of finally starting the journey of allowing myself to heal over the past month and a half has been really rough for me for a few reasons. One, I am addicted to exercise, and letting go, taking true 100% full time off has been a struggle (imagine a whole new kind of withdrawal). [...]

A special delivery came yesterday, which provided a much needed mood-boost. Chocolate (especially Love Bean Fudge) and a good book can heal most problems, after all... So now I finally get to crack into  Liz Wolfe's book Eat the Yolks. It's as awesome as I knew it would be. A fellow English major, the girl can write, and [...]

chocolate banana muffins and why sharing is caring

By | 2015-04-01T09:19:28-08:00 May 27th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Breakfast, Nutrition, Recipes|

I have a little extra time to cook, bake, and experiment in the kitchen right now since I can't train because of my neck.... This creates a bit of a conundrum, though, because eating baked goods all day when I'm not working out at all... Well, it goes without saying that that just won't do. [...]

Memorial Day Murph and bacon cheddar stuffed burger bowls

Before I jump into a recipe, I want to take a moment to highlight the real reason for this long weekend. Eating yummy food and hanging in the sun with friends and family are great, but we can't forget why we celebrate Memorial Day... To remember and honor the men and women who have given the [...]
