Got Veggies?

Just a reminder that CrossFit Scottsdale is now a pick-up location for North Scottsdale Organics Co-Op.  In this week’s bag we got nectarines, peaches, apricots, mango, cameo apples, salad mix, roma tomatoes, romaine lettuce, zucchini, broccoli,  yams, and Kale! – all for just $20.  Everything is certified organic!

We love the Tuscan Kale Salad at True Foods.  So guess what we are going to make this weekend!  Kale is a great source of calcium and iron – both essential for good WOD performance.  If you are feeling adventurous, here is a link to the recipe: http://www.truefoodkitchen.com/recipes/tuscan-kale-salad.php

Sick of Eggs for Breakfast?

Try this  Paleo Oatmeal Recipe from Mark’s Daily Apple reader Doug Descant’s ingenious recipe for No-atmeal.

Ingredients:

  • 1 small handful of walnuts
  • 1 small handful of pecans
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 1/2 – 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (add more if you prefer it a little runny)
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin seeds
  • 1 handful of goji berries or fresh berries

Directions:

Add walnuts, pecans, flax seed and spices to a food processor and pulse it down to a course grain, making sure to stop before it’s totally ground into a powder. Set aside.

Whisk together eggs and almond milk (Doug uses a Blender Bottle) until the consistency thickens a little bit into a loose custard. Thoroughly blend together the mashed banana and almond butter and add it to the custard, mixing well.

Stir in the nut mixture. Microwave or gently warm on the stove until the “no-atmeal” reaches your desired consistency; this should only take a few minutes. In both cases, stir the mixture frequently as it cooks.

Sprinkle pumpkin seeds and berries on top. Add more almond milk if you want. Lick the bowl clean!

Here is a good paleo pie crust recipe that was taken from www.sonofgrok.com cheesecake recipe. Since cheese isn’t paleo but the crust looked good I wanted to post it. Use with pumpkin or apple pie:

•1+ cup of almond flour
•3 Tbsp organic butter or Coconut oil
•1 teaspoon cinnamon
1.Melt the butter or coconut oil in a large bowl.
2.Add cinnamon
3.Add almond flour and mix until you get a good crumbly consistency
4.Press very thinly into your pie pan

Most of all be thankful for friends, family and good health! Enjoy and post your recipes to comments!
