Nutrition for CrossFit Part 1: You Can Lead a Horse to Water

Posted by on Aug 5, 2013 | 1 comment

From Mrs. Oswald… This might be the most boring nutrition topic, but it’s the most important. I see people counting their calories, watching their carbs, and consuming their post-workout protein shakes, but aren’t drinking water, not realizing its fundamental role in every one of their fitness or health goals. Water is needed by the body to transport nutrients and oxygen to cells, lubricate joints, remove toxins, regulate body temperature and bowel movements, and protect tissues and organs. If water is essential to survival (we can only live a couple days without it) and...

I WANT to change

Posted by on Apr 8, 2012 | 0 comments

You can’t keep doing what you have been doing for however long you’ve been doing it and then wonder why you’re not reaping the benefits of all your hard work at the gym. If you eat like shit you get shitty results. Period. Starting MAY 1 we will be having a challenge...

Paleo/Gluten Free Bread Recipe

Posted by on Dec 22, 2011 | 0 comments

The holidays have brought with them the craving for baked goods, so we tried out a paleo bread recipe. I wasn’t sure how this would turn out, fearing it would end up very dense and bland without sugar or flour. But, for a first attempt, it turned out quite nice.

Pumpkin or zucchini would also be a great variation. Paleo bread ingredients: 2 cups almond meal 1/4 cup walnut...
