Paleo Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

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

Texas Pot Roast

Who doesn’t like slow cooking a pot roast for 10 hours and enjoying the roast just falling to pieces because of its tenderness? This pot roast is a perfect combination if you like beef and you like spicy. Put it on top of mashed potatoes or enjoy it like a roast beef dip on a nice french roll.

Baked Honey Dijon Swai Fish

Swai fish is not the easiest fish to find. The first time I tried it was at The Heights in Upland but they only get it in once per year. I ran into this fish in the frozen section at Trader Joe’s last week. One bag of 3 really good sized Swai was $4.99. I bought it and figured if I didn’t like it then I wouldn’t purchase it again. I thawed two pieces and used this recipe. It was outstanding...

Maple Glazed Salmon

My husband does not like salmon but I sure do. The best part about this recipe is that it is quick and you can baste your salmon and through it in the oven while you prep other food. This came out lightly sweetened with just the right about of seasoning. You could still taste the fish but if gave a since of Hawaiian flare. It just needed some grilled pineapple. Next time!

Paleo Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

 Of course baggies filled for my Crossfit friends:

My husband and I did yard work all weekend long. I stared over the wall a couple times at the neighbor’s lemon tree trying to think of what I could make with those. Last night when I finished work and James was at Taco Tuesday with the boys, a large light bulb went off...

Paleo Honey Mustard Crusted Chicken

If you don’t want Paleo-styled chicken, you can dredge the chicken in Italian bread crumbs or Panko Crumbs. I tried all 3 ways to see which one my husband liked better. I loved the paleo style best and he liked panko 1st and paleo-styled 2nd best.

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

 Time to Share!
As most of you already know, I took a couple years off from Crossfit training in order to train for a Half Ironman and to ride my dirt bike more often. Back in December I started back to Crossfit. My food blog has so many components to it that I hadn’t focused on ZONE or PALEO styled recipes in quite some time...
