Eating clean can seem daunting, especially if you’re not equipped with a ton of recipes to get started. Also, falling victim to things that come in boxes is all too easy when you’re running out of time. So, here are some yummy clean recipes to get you back on the right track. They not only taste good, but they look good too (who said healthy food had to be bland in any form or fashion)! And for more ideas on clean eating, follow my Pinterest board So Fresh & So Clean!
“WOD Talk is a lifestyle magazine for people who train using CrossFit, which is a core strength and conditioning program. WOD stands for Workout of the Day!!! Each issue provides educational information from experts in the fields of fitness, nutrition and sports psychology as well as motivational success stories.”
This is huge for the CrossFit community, because as it grows (and it’s growing mighty fast), so will desire for content. I know we’ve almost completely submerged into a digital society, but it’s still nice to have print. That being said, I had the opportunity to contribute to the magazine for their May issue. Not only did I contribute an article, but a photo I shot at CrossFit 310 as well. I love being able to capture the essence of what makes CrossFit so. f’ing. awesome. SO, if you haven’t already, subscribe! They have a digital subscription for $10 per year or you can get print & digital for $35 per year.
What are your plans this weekend? Tonight I’ll be donating blood to the Red Cross for CrossFit 310′s blood drive & 2 year anniversary party. I’m so honored to celebrate 310 and everything we’ve accomplished in the past year. Also, I’m going to see Roger Waters at the L.A. Colosseum Saturday night, followed by a research paper & a marketing power point. I don’t know how I manage, but I seem to pack a lot into one weekend. I hope you have a great weekend and here are some posts from around the web . . . .

There’s still time to enter Civilized Caveman’s $4000 giveaway. That’s a LOT of grass-fed meat.
Something incredible happened this past week.
A very small fire was lit in the deepest part of myself, and that fire is quickly growing & burning down all the walls that I’ve been hiding behind for a very long time. I don’t know if it was triggered by my participation in the CrossFit Games Open, or if a shift occurred around that time by coincident, but I feel overwhelmed with an insatiable desire to succeed. A drive to be the absolute best version of myself I can possibly be. A desire to stop making excuses, and to start taking action. . . to be the deliberate creator I know I am.
That said . . . .I have BIG plans in the works for this blog, as well as some CrossFit goals I’m going to strategically tackle, and it’s breath-taking that I can actually envision my destination. Something is calling to me, and for the first time in my life, I’m ready to listen. Let’s see where this takes me.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.’ We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. ” – Marianne Williamson
