Let's talk about eating on the road (or in the air, or on a boat). I have spent A LOT of time on the road. Whether it was the years spent on the CrossFit Level 1 Seminar Staff, the period that I worked with schools around the country to implement fitness programs, the two moves up and down [...]

chocolate zucchini bread and being a locavore

By | June 25th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Breakfast, Health, Nutrition, Recipes|

There is all kinds of hype around the whole organic movement.

silver linings and cacao, coconut, cashew protein cups

By | June 13th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Breakfast, Grab and Go, Health, Recipes, The Mind|

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). [...]

paleo “peanut butter” cups
