I made this shrimp for my first grill-out of the summer. How weird is it that it’s almost mid-July and I’ve only grilled once? Well, I don’t have my own grill and I’ve been working an overnight shift, so it’s kind of hard to find people to grill with. But I finally managed it, and I made some bomb spicy shrimp. I’m just glad I wrote down this impromptu recipe so I could share it!
First, I’m going to get a little emotional up in here.
But more on that in a minute, first, let me point out that you should suffer through my concussion story to get these nut-free, super easy, fantastic, awesome time banana waffles. Because who the heck doesn’t like waffles? Like, seriously?
Let me preface this by saying that I’m not out to change the world. I hardly have my own life figured out, and when I’m struggling to pinpoint what I want to focus my energies on, it’s hard to feel qualified enough to give advice. But a recent discussion-turned-south caused an idea to bubble up inside me, and I think it’s worth sharing.
This last week has been an important one for me. Last week I celebrated my 1 year anniversary at CrossFit 701. It was a great opportunity to look at how far I’ve come, and what my goals are for year 2. But first, check out this simple infograph I made comparing my lifts from the beginning to now:
Heads up! I’ve completely revamped this blueberry protein muffin recipe, and I now have a totally paleo version available here!
This blueberry muffin recipe turned out awesome on my first try. As a result, I now feel like a Paleo baking goddess. So of course I had to share, so you can feel that way too!
I’ll admit, this recipe is a little more primal than paleo due to the protein powder. I use high quality, crap-free protein powder (SFH – Stronger Faster Healthier) that is made from grass fed whey as an occasional supplement for CrossFit. Whey is technically derived from dairy, so it’s not strict paleo. However, it doesn’t bother my stomach and it’s fantastic, quick fuel for my workouts. If you aren’t using protein powder, just add a couple more tablespoons of coconut flour or tapioca flour and you should be good. (As a note, I’ve never tried them that way before, so I don’t know if it works).
