The Whole30 Effect {Guest Post}

Editor's Note: This is Matt (no seriously, click that link. You will regret it if you don't). You know how everyone has that one gym friend who just gets it? Well for me, that person is Matt. Matt has been practicing Martial Arts since a super young age, and began training Capoeira five years ago. He started CrossFit last August to compliment his training, and we became fast friends for a lot of reasons, not the least of which being that we both really hate running and wall balls. When I did the Read more [...]

You Get What You Pay For

On Sunday night, Brandon and I returned from a very long weekend of amazing but exhausting wedding shenanigans to an empty refrigerator. Usually in our house this means time to go to Sprouts, a smallish natural food store chain a few blocks from our house, or occasionally to Whole Foods, but I have been hearing a lot lately (like, a LOT a lot) about Costco and their organic selection, so I thought it was time for us to check it out. Let me start off by saying that I pretty much never go to Costco, Read more [...]

Whole30 Round 2: Day 31

Well folks, I made it. Thirty days of clean eating in the bag. And y'know what? Even though I eat mostly paleo, ate strict paleo/zone for the first several weeks of the year, and practically never eat dairy - let alone gluten - I still learned a LOT during this Whole30. The first time we did Whole30, we really only made it about 3ish weeks. Thanksgiving and a trip to California got in the way, and that was fine. But sticking it out for the final 4th week really did teach me a lot about, well, Read more [...]

Whole30 and PMS

As the title suggests, this is going to be a pretty girly post. I plan to talk about things like birth control, cramps, and maybe even tampons. So if that sort of thing scares you, I invite you to not read any further... and also to maybe revisit some middle school health curriculum. But there's your warning, anyway. Yesterday I mentioned that last Friday was potentially the hungriest day of my life. I'm pretty sure that this had to do with PMS, and although I did have to squelch some particularly Read more [...]

Whole30 Round 2: Week 3

I would say that Week 3 of my Whole30 was a big success, especially compared to Week 2. Work was much better and did not cause me any extra stress, I slept super well, and I even came up with an amazing new recipe that has landed sweet potatoes back squarely in the middle of my diet where they belong. I Rx'd Flight Simulator in 9:53 (it's a double under workout, google it), going almost totally unbroken except for my set of 20 coming back down, and after a few weeks of feeling like my heart just Read more [...]

{Whole30 Recipe} Cinnamon Sweet Potato Fritters

Spring has sprung in Colorado, but in case you think that means we are covered in flowers and birdies, think again. What spring in Colorado really means is that we've gotten more snow in the past 2 weeks than anything we got this winter combined. It snowed a foot on Monday, another 6 inches yesterday, and it was 16 degrees when I woke up this morning. What the F. So last night, I decided to make rabbit stew using the rabbit that I ordered from US Wellness Meats. I modified this recipe to make Read more [...]
