Nutrition - 18 Feb 2011 - Meeting today, Tips, and a Recipe!

Good Morning, All!

We're heavy in the middle of testing out here in the foreign land of Building 43 – so I have to keep this one short. Hopefully, you all have read and (mostly) understand the information on digestion and the fed states. Today's meeting will focus solely on grains and their affect on the body. As always, I will send out the class notes and more (over 20 pages worth) on grains next week. It might be overkill but if this is what it takes to get you off of the wheat then so be it.

Nutrition Tip of the Day: Sleep! No really. It is that important. Below are a few teasers to the articles contained in the file attached. There is a lot of information out there on this topic so I've only included a couple from my favorite go-to guys Mark Sisson and Robb Wolf.

Yesterday I got a great question about something I termed "metabolic failure" in regards to your fitness regimen's. My original response and explanation was rather poor so I have prepared a new one which I will be bringing to the group on Tuesday. If you really want to drive change and burn more fat – try to attend. I'll not only explain the energy pathways and how to get there but demonstrate the difference. This will probably be YouTube worthy!

Back to the testing. See you all at noon!


P.S. Everyone has homework this weekend (yes, even those of you who are only on the email list). Get those measurements and pictures taken! Send me the measurements as soon as you get them.

P.P.S. I will be off-campus from the 28th to the 6th attending the Custom Harvesters convention in Grand Island. I'll continue to have daily emails sent out as well as homework for you. Getting together on Tuesday and Friday will be optional but I highly recommend it! It's a great time to talk as a group and share your questions and knowledge.

Well…today is the first day back in the gym training folks in almost 2 weeks. We took the past 11 days off due to the holidays and upwards of 50% of my time off was spent sleeping! Left to my own devices I will sleep for 9hrs per night and Read more…

You would think being qualified to talk about sleep is a good thing. Often, it's not. Just like Robb learned to be strict with gluten much quicker than most, it tends to be those who have the worst problems are who know the most about it. When it comes to Read more…

The Definitive Guide to Sleep

Sleep 1Sleep Awareness Week (as sponsored by the National Sleep Foundation) technically ended March 13th, but somehow I'm guessing there are just as many sleep deprived folks milling about this week as there were a few days ago – just like our good reader Monday. Maybe a few of us feel better adjusted to the time change these days, but probably just as many stayed up late to watch the NCAA games this weekend. Or maybe it was a late St. Paddy's Day party. Somehow it's always somethin', isn't it?

Kitchen Equipment and Today's Lunch

Posted on November 19, 2010 by Sarah


Today's Lunch

I often mention kitchen essentials that make paleo cooking a heck of a lot easier; such as a food processor, pressure cooker, and the oh so important slow cooker. Check out this fun site for even more fun kitchen equipment! My favorite suggestion is the fire extinguisher. Now that's some serious cooking!!

I would like to share with you today's super easy lunch which includes my new favorite way to enjoy winter squash.

Today's Lunch

Just some good ol' grass fed beef

2 lbs grass fed ground beef

1/2 red onion, diced

5 cups fresh spinach leaves, chopped

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1/2 tablespoon garlic powder

splash of balsamic vinegar

Sea salt and black pepper to taste

Saute the onions in the coconut oil until translucent. Add the ground beef and brown. Add the spices and the spinach and cook for another 5 minutes or until the spinach is cooked down and tender.

Roasted Winter Squash

1 butternut squash

2 tablespoons coconut oil

Preheat oven to 400. Remove the skin from the squash with a potato peeler. Cut the squash in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Slice the squash into very thin slices. Toss with the coconut oil and spread evenly on a baking sheet. Roast for 25 minutes. Check our Rowan in the pics below trying the squash raw! He liked it much better when it was out of the oven…

Roasted Romanesco

I received a beautiful romanesco in my CSA share this week and I roasted it exactly like the squash, first cutting it into florets and then baking for 25 minutes. I cannot even describe the incredible taste of this veggie, a mild mix of broccoli and cauliflower. Jaden called it, "The Best Thing Ever!!" I have never seen romanesco in the grocery stores but roasting broccoli or cauliflower is just as tasty!
