THE PERFORMANCE PALEO COOKBOOK and BREAKFAST TACOS

THE PERFORMANCE PALEO COOKBOOK and BREAKFAST TACOS

Last week I received a copy of The Performance Paleo Cookbook by Stephanie from Stupid Easy Paleo. On my first look through the book I stumbled upon her Blackened Fish Tacos with Mango Slaw and immediately got out my shopping list to write down the ingredients I needed. The next day I made them for dinner and they were delicious! Needless to say I'm excited to try more of the recipes from this book.

SWEET POTATO WAFFLES

Happy Holidays! Life has been a bit hectic lately, but I know that's typical this time of year. Balancing work, training, holiday parties, family gatherings, travel and a few competitions has kept me on my toes, but I've had a blast doing it all. Last week I was in Washington DC competing at the American Open for weightlifting and what an incredible experience its was. We spent five days lifting weights, sight seeing, bumping into friends and I even had the pleasure of attending a Paleo Cookie Swap hosted by Paleo Parents at their home in Virginia.

MINI BREAKFAST TARTS

MINI BREAKFAST TARTS

What a relaxing weekend. I'd been so busy with competitions and different events that I hadn't had a chance to just settle down and relax. I'll admit I'm not very good at that. I kept trying to find things to do and places to go, but I did chill out a little bit. Saturday I got to train with two of my favorite girls, Sara and Rose. We did some conditioning then enjoyed a nice lunch outside on the patio at Porters in Lodi. It's still 80 degrees here in California so I'm taking full advantage of it as long as possible. Winter and I aren't really friends. Then on Sunday I woke up and made these incredibly delicious breakfast tarts before heading up to Sacramento to watch some of my friends compete at the Women's Pro-Am Powerlifting competition. It was awesome! Maybe one of these days I'll sign up to compete at one. I need to suck less at deadlifting first though.
