      I had a great dinner at Silver Diner last night. I was going out to dinner w/ my bf and picked that restaurant because they have a lot of healthy, farm fresh ingredients that I figured I could work with.

      I ended up getting a side portion of roasted veggies (brussel sprouts, butternut squash, eggplant, and I subbed spinach for beets) with pesto and diced chicken breast. It was fantastic, and so filling that I couldn’t finish all of it! Ended up being just about $6!

  4. 140306

    EMOM: 135×5, 145×5
    RDL: up to 225
    WOD: 8 + lunges

  5. 140306

    EMOM: 135 for all 10
    RDL: 135
    WOD: Wheels fell off pretty quickly and I forgot to count. Guessing around 4 or 5 rounds, trying to remember rope climbs mid WOD not good.

  6. 140306

    Clean/RDLs – 135
    AMRAP – 9 rounds
    Abs are sore today.

    Coach Jason told me about it so I had to try it. Bacon Flavored Mayo!


    2 egg yolks
    1 tsp prepared (gluten-free) mustard (I used dijon mustard)
    3 tsp lemon juice
    1 cup liquid bacon fat


    Put yolks, mustard, and lemon juice into a food processor.
    Turn it on and slowly drizzle in the bacon fat…and I mean s-l-o-w-l-y, this is what emulsifies the fat and gives it the mayo it’s consistency.
    Season with salt and pepper to your taste preference.
    Store in a glass jar (I love this one!).
    Lasts a few week in the fridge.

  8. 140306

    EMOM: 95
    RDL: 115

  9. 140306

    Im not posting a recipie today. Instead its a tip that i have found usefull
    for vegtables. The microwave steamer bags you can get in the grocery stores works great for and on the go lifestyle.I use them all the time at work. You can get everything from broccoli to edemame (my personal favorite). I have also found that they are usually on sall once a week at safeway (buy one get one free)

  10. 140306

    Tip of the day-

    This is a fantastic butcher shop in Del Ray with good selection and a dedication to grassfed/farm raised local farms. Plus- where else can you special order elk, kangaroo, Kobe, ostrich, and antelope?

    Another chili recipe. I make this all the time.
    This is my recipe that I’ve tuned over the years.

    3 strips of bacon (optional)
    ~4lb 85% (90% if you must) grass fed beef or bison
    1 large onion
    5 cloves of garlic
    4 bell peppers, variety of colors
    1 poblano pepper
    1 cup beef bouillon
    1/2 – 1 bottle of beer (leave this out if you’re on the challenge) – I’ve experimented with a variety of types, I think I prefer darker porters or stouts.
    1 large can of diced tomatoes
    1 small can of tomato paste
    however much water you need to give it something to cook down to, probably 1 cup at least.
    — Up to this point are the volume ingredients —
    1/2 cup of chili powder
    1 TBSP cumin
    1 TBSP ancho chile powder
    2 tsp of paprika
    1/2 tsp of dried ground hot chile powder (cayenne, habanero, whatever you have)
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp fresh pepper

    -Get a large pot
    -dice bacon very fine, and brown in the pot at medium-high heat don’t let it get overdone, it should be tender, chewy, but not burned.
    -Add beef, brown completely
    -Add onion, cook until beginning to become translucent (4-5 minutes)
    -Add garlic (1 min), stir continually.
    -Add all peppers, stir continually, about another 5 minutes
    -Add tomatoes, bouillon, paste, water and/or beer, blend that in for another 5 minutes or so, should have a fair amount of liquid visible at this point, if not add more water. Should be much easier to stir than before.
    -Add spices, blend spices thoroughly, about 5 minutes of consistent stirring at same heat. Then reduce to simmer, this should be really low, probably need to move to a smaller burner.
    -Simmer for 45 minutes, and then test for seasoning level. Add more of whatever you think it will need. I usually add a bit more salt, cumin, and/or chili powder.
    -Simmer for another hour at least. Liquid should be noticeably reduced. You’re looking for a nice thick consistency.

    Just did this from memory, hope I didn’t leave anything out.

    Good luck.

  16. 140306

    Had to do the 30 min ‘sled run’ today–ie. 35lb toddler in the Bob stroller around partially shoveled sidewalks. Finished with 5 hill sprints.
    Tip: I second the above on Nuts.com– but add that they have great prices on bulk unsweetened coconut and unadulterated nuts, dates and flour (coconut, almond and taro root)

  17. 140306

    Tonights arsenal cooking:
    Smelled excellent as I was cooking and now I have protein for dinner the next 3 nights.
