When I compete in CrossFit I pretty much go the entire day running on a ton of adrenaline and little bit of baby food. Those little packets that are made from just a mix of fruit keeping me going when I can’t stomach any real food. By the end of the day, and once my […]

The Paleo Buzz

If we’re being realistic, cavemen weren’t exactly ripping shots of tequila or sipping on hard ciders by the fire back in the day. But then again they also weren’t chugging down whey protein or tossing around kettle bells for pleasure. While many of us are striving for that “paleo lifestlye”, our modern world has changed […]
