Help For the Holidays

By | General CrossFit, News, Nutrition

We’re almost one week into our holiday nutrition challenge, and have survived the first hurdle:  Thanksgiving Day.  How did you do?  I hope you made some good food choices, maybe got in a workout before or after your meal, and did treat yourself to one serving of your most favorite Thanksgiving treat!

Yes, you’ll see some gains here and there, a small PR on a deadlift, a slightly faster Fran time, one more rep on your max-rep pullups……but those milestones will be fewer…

Paleo Blueberry Muffins

By | News, Nutrition | No Comments

Preheat oven to 300°. Line 12 muffin cups with muffin liners (or grease each cup well with coconut oil). In a large bowl, whisk together everything but the blueberries until fully combined. Gently fold in the blueberries to incorporate. Fill each liner 3/4 full with batter and bake for 30-40 minutes. The top should be spongey but firm when pressed and your finger should not go through into the muffin. Cool for 5 minutes and remove from muffin pans. Ingredients 2 1/2 cups almond meal 3 eggs 1/4 cup honey 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon vanilla 1 cup blueberries Courtesy of Fast Paleo.
