We celebrated Evie's first birthday yesterday with 30+ friends in the sunshine under the same big oak tree where we celebrated her coming birth just over a year ago. It was a magical day filled with great food, delicious wine, lots of laughter, kiddo rough housing, tree climbing, and so much tribe time. Our hearts are [...]

This year is off to a crazy, albeit awesome, start, and I am taking my clean eating with me. Busy days are no excuse to let food quality go to the wayside. In fact, the busier life gets, the more important it is to eat nutrient dense foods because they keep energy levels high, mood [...]

So we're here. The year is in full swing, we're moving into Spring, and reality is hitting.

Fact: my husband loves biscuits. Corn biscuits. Biscuits and gravy. Buttermilk biscuits. Cheddar biscuits. Breakfast biscuit sandwiches. You name the biscuit, he loves it. With temperatures dropping, and soups, stews, and lots of chili on the menu at least 4 days a week, he's been asking me for biscuits pretty much daily. I love him, so [...]

Ask and you shall receive! After posting my chocolate chip chewies (which are sweetened with coconut sugar), many of you who are currently doing a sugar detox or the NorCal CrossFit Summer Challenge asked for a "treat" that you could enjoy without going off plan. I'll tell you what, treats without sweetener are hard to [...]

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 [...]

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

By | 2015-04-01T09:18:03+00:00 July 10th, 2014|CrossFit, Grab and Go, Health, Nutrition, Recipes|

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 [...]
