Answer: Football, lacrosse, ballet, dance, and show choir. Lacrosse was the hardest because their was consistent and simultaneous cognitive and physical engagement. It took me about a year to learn how to run, throw, and catch at the same time before I could even begin to think about next level strategies. Throw in the fact that I had to do all this while running up and down the field too?! that...

Spicy Coco-Lime Kale Chips! →

Maybe it’s because making chips out of a vegetable sounds like a complex and tedious endeavor. Whatever it is, kale chips don’t deserve the difficult reputation that most novice cooks associate with...

“I gotta say, that as a guy, being able to power-clean like 225, so to get 225 pounds from the ground to your shoulder level, um… it gives you a little bit of confidence when you’re dealing with a lady friend,” Prudoff-Smith said. “I’ve definitely used the core strength that I’ve gained from CrossFit for personal pleasure — and dispensing of...
The Beardfitter: Dark Chocolate Junkie →
beardedcrossfitter: It all began when I started taking the paleo diet seriously and my sweet level intake was at an all time low. The only thing to keep me sane was reveling in a Hershey’s dark chocolate candy bar at the end of the day. I was at a level where if I didn’t have this piece of chocolate I might of had a… Wow. well said. I used to feel the same way about the planters Fruit...
Why I Buy Grass-Fed Beef. →
becomingsuperhuman: If you would have mentioned “grass-fed beef” to me a few years ago, I would have looked at you like you were crazy. What is grass-fed beef?

It wasn’t until I started to take the paleo diet seriously...

buildingothersup: vivalapinkowitz: Well this is new. While at dinner today, an acquaintance told me something I’m not used to hearing. “You’re too skinny! Seriously, you need to stop losing weight. Eat more!” While at the restaurant, I kind of laughed it off. It’s just a joke, right? Don’t be too sensitive about it. Later in the evening, I decided to show him a picture from where I...
cookingcaveman replied to your post: I miss Bananas Why would you stop eating bananas? In the middle of a strict paleo challenge. I’m trying to hit the reset on my insulin sensitivity by cutting out fruit/nearly all sugar. Just meat, veggies, and fats (mostly olive oil)
