MANGO BERRY SMOOTHIE

MANGO BERRY SMOOTHIE

I'm finally getting back into the groove of things at the gym. After a week off my body is ready to get back to training. I've decided to follow the CrossFit Invictus Competition Program and I'm really excited about it. A new program cycle began yesterday so it's perfect timing. And I have a few friends at the gym who want to follow along as well which will make it fun. The combined focus on foundational strength and aerobic capacity should be great in preparing me to accomplish my goals this year. Improving my endurance is crucial in my attempt to compete as an individual next year. It's always been my weakness and I can't say I love conditioning. Give me gymnastics and let me lift some heavy weights and I'm happy. But not everything is going to be fun when you're trying to reach a bigger goal right? I mean I had to row 1500 meters 3 times yesterday. Talk about brutal! But I know I'm one step closer to my goal. And it will get easier right? RIGHT? Actually, the most brutal part about yesterdays workout was the weather. It was 115 degrees! So HOT! I got home and I couldn't even fathom cooking. So I decided to make a smoothie. I rarely have cravings for them. But this weather had me wanting something cold and fruity. So I whipped up this mango berry drink and it was delish! I hope you enjoy it on one of these hot summer days.

And that's fair enough, we're all busy I know! So here is a perfect opportunity to get started and jump right in. This book is genius, seriously I'm so impressed with Hayley and Bill the authors of this book from The Food Lovers Kitchen. It's practically idiot proof.

AN EBOOK WORTHY OF ANY CAVEMAN

AN EBOOK WORTHY OF ANY CAVEMAN

Well this is something new I'm doing. A cookbook review? Yup that's what you heard. I've had a lot of people asking me about what cookbooks I use and which are my favorites. Well I don't have too many cookbooks to be honest, but they are a great resource. I'm also a huge fan of paleo blogs and was beyond ecstatic when one of my all time favorite paleo bloggers The Civilized Caveman, George Bryant came out with his first Caveman Feast Ebook. It's taken me a little while to write this because I wanted to try out the recipes in his book first so I could be sure to give you all an honest review. And I'm glad I did because my taste buds have been utterly thankful!
