I took some time off from Crossfit. #1 because I was pregnant and #2 because I found out I had bulging discs on my spine. Not sure what from, but assume after all these years of random training: karate, cheerleading, softball, triathlons, Half Ironman, riding my bike in AIDS Lifecycle from San Francisco to L.A. in one week (545 miles), Crossfit, Bikram, crashing a few times on my dirt bike, and so on.....Read More

With surprise ingredients like beer and unsweetened cocoa, the blend of seasonings and flavors creates a mouth watering chili that will have them begging for the recipe...Read More
Tammy Upshaw, Melanie King, and I decided to create this very unique cookie while sipping on wine. They are AHMAZING! If you are a Crossfitter; these are a yummy treat that is perfect for Paleo/ZONE diets. You can omit the chocolate chips/white chocolate chips and only add in dried cranberries and nuts to be extra healthy!
1 can (15 oz) chickpeas (Garbanzo beans)
1/2 cup almond butter or crunc...Read More
A handful of tweaks turn this comfort food into a smarter choice: white-meat chicken (not dark), extra veggies, low-fat milk in the filling, and a lighter crust. Brushing the phyllo with just a small amount of oil instead of butter makes it just as tasty.
