Easy prep for a Paleo week.

Lesson 1: Paleo Prep

Take home point: Cook WAY more than you think.

One of the first things you can do to make life simple in a Paleo kitchen is to learn to cook more food than what you need for dinner. In the picture above the bowls contain 3 bags of brussels sprouts, 2 bunches of asparagus, 2 sliced onions, and a carton of mushrooms each tossed with some combination of garlic, thyme, basil, and olive oil.  Grilled or roasted, the vegetables will provide enough food for dinner and 3-4 more meals.

To kick off an easy week, grill or roast the vegetable and 2 pounds of beef (or other meat). You can make hamburger patties or just cook up the loose ground beef.

After dinner, store the vegetables in tupperware OR pack the leftovers into tupperware meals for an easy to grab lunch on the way out the door in the morning.

What’s the foil there in the picture? Roasted garlic!  A favorite in our house, it’s super simple to add to any meal.  Peel away as much of the outer flakes as possible.  Chop off the top of the entire head of garlic and brush with olive oil.  Wrap in foil and roast for 20-30 minutes or grill for the amount of time.  Pop out the roasted garlic pieces from the casings and add to any dish.

    I know Paleo is top priority today….AND AS I SAW THIS WOD FIRST HAND ON SATURDAY…. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE EATEN YOUR WEIGHT IN ENERGY FOODS BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT THIS. IF we are lucky…there will be a 15min cap!!!

    I am not sure how to start or even comment on this weekends EPIC performances by our Regionals Team. Not sure I can post this but: BAD ASS. Yes….I think that is a good place to start.

    One more thing about the games… If you ever think you should give up in a WOD, read about this girl:

    http://games2010.crossfit.com/blog/2010/04/megan-john/

    She PR’d her 95lb snatch 20 times in the final WOD and finished under the cut off. What was crazy, is it seemed like she failed every other one… so while she did 20 successfully — she tried a WHOLE lot… It was the most AMAZING thing I’ve ever seen. The crowd went nuts!

    Starting the paleo thing today for the first time. Geez, I need some honey. Anyway, yesterday I grilled up some lean meat for the week, but wondered how long grilled/cooked meat lasts in the fridge? What’s people’s experiences?

  6. Blakely

    And now back to Paleo . . .

    Day 1 and look what I am faced with!

    Subject: Oreos

    Is Greek for “beautiful” or “nice”.

    It is also a cookie, and there is a bag of them in the kitchen.

    Kali Orexi!
