20 Days of Paleo-Zone

For the next 20 days counting down to the Colorado Open I have decided to follow the Paleo-Zone diet sworn by elite CrossFitters to be critical for peak athletic performance. To way over-simplified it, ‘Paleo’ has you eating mostly meat and vegetables with some fruit and nuts while ‘The Zone’ takes care of portion control. Yesterday was a success. 19 days to go.

For dinner last night I made pecan crusted pork and roasted butternut squash.

So good. Great recipes, Steve!

    Yum! It didn’t turn out quite as good as when you made it for us in CA but it was still good and I will be happy to practice!

    Hi Karen! It’s Julie, the “new kid” from the noon class. Love the food-blogging – this meal looks delicious! Eating paleo has really made cooking fun for me somehow. I never used to enjoy it as much. Good luck with the Colorado Open and I’ll see you in class!

    Thanks Julie! Same for me. It is easy for me to fall into a habit of grabbing stuff while I am out but I love to cook too so its nice to have an extra reason to do it! 🙂 See you soon!
