Rootz for Radical Roots

By | May 14th, 2016|Health, Nutrition|

As I mentioned a few posts ago, I am not a huge supplement person. In my opinion, we can get most, if not all, of the nourishment we need from real, organic, properly raised food. There are, however, some key exceptions to this, and with that being said only a few key supplements that fit the [...]

nut buffer protein muffins

By | March 16th, 2016|A Little Sweet Tooth, Breakfast, Grab and Go, Health, Recipes|

Earlier this week, after a grueling CrossFit workout, I had a serious hankering for muffins after a friend mentioned making some for her kiddo. I am big believer in listening to cravings. And I knew that I needed some extra protein to refuel and to prep for the busy day ahead. After a quick perusal of [...]

A couple weeks back, I had a client of mine send me the link to THIS article titled Embracing Fat for a Healthy Heart Is a Notion Based on Flawed Science. The writer, Dean Ornish, MD, is also one of the docs behind Forks Over Knives, a film that sets out to prove that many of [...]

no-cook coconut cocoa truffles… and the importance of your people

By | August 7th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Health, Nutrition, Recipes, The Mind|

It'll be no surprise to anyone when I say this... People spend too much damn time with their noses in their phones (while not everyone is guilty of this, I'm speaking of the majority... At least here in the Silicon Valley). I think it's gotten too easy to forget about living and loving actual life [...]

chocolate banana BROtein cakes

The CrossFit Games are upon us, and this year is going to be extra exciting and anxiety-provoking. We've got good friend, Jason Khalipa, going for gold as an individual, and our NorCal team competing for their spot too. On top of that, I'll be pulling hard for my friends Margaux Alvarez and Camille Leblanc-Bazinet (among [...]

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). [...]

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 [...]

caveman breakfast tacos

As some of you may know, I am currently dealing with two herniated disks in my cervical spine. I finally went and got an MRI and EMG after about a year and half of back, neck, and now head pain, and got some answers from Dr. Millar with SOAR. I am not going to sit [...]

By | May 6th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Breakfast, Grab and Go, Nutrition|

Sorry for the lack of posts recently. I am having some struggles with REALLY bad back, neck, and head pain. The good news is that I still had a blast working the CrossFit Level 1 Seminar this past weekend in San Jose. The participants were just so awesome, and as always, I got to work [...]
