The End of Food

Heather Gibbons has been a personal trainer for 9 years and has been with Crossfit since WAY back when. She's also wicked smart and super knowledgeable about nutrition. We all will have the opportunity to tap into her extensive knowledge on April 10th when she is giving a nutrition seminar at Foundation Crossfit (stay tuned for details!).

I was chatting with her the other day and she suggested I watch Paul Roberts speak to the Commonwealth Club about the book The End of Food. I'm glad I did. He's a great speaker and seems to really have a grasp on "the big picture" of how food production and consumption has digressed to it's sickly state. If you enjoy food documentaries like Food, Inc., Fat Head or Super Size Me then this might interest you.

Here are some of my favorite quotes from his presentation:

"the average household spends 1/2 an hour a day preparing food" (What the what?)

"This sounds very Martha Stewart and I'm sorry, but cooking is a way to re-empower yourself when it comes to food"

"If we are going to give food the priority it deserves we are going to have to stop watching other people cook."

Watching this has re-inspired me to plant the balcony garden I've been thinking about starting for years.

Extra classes this week!

We will have a 6pm class everday this week! We are making this slot available since the next Foundations program doesn't start until next Monday. For this week only, we will be expanding your evening Foundation CrossFit options to 5pm, 6pm, and 7pm!

Elbows high & outside.




for time:

Cleans are power cleans.



Which do you like better? The clean, the snatch or the jerk?

Real Food Movement

Did anybody catch Jamie Oliver's show this past Sunday? I'll probably have to see if I can catch it online since I missed it, but curious to know what ya'll thought if you saw it. Post to comments!

More on real food movement. The Fat Head movie came out a couple years ago where comedian Tom Naughton basically says, and demonstrates, that everything we've been told about eating healthy and obesity is a bunch of "balogna." He also responds to the documentary Super Size Me and brings in his opinion on what the goverment classifies people who are 'overweight.' I have seen both movies and recommend both (along with Food Inc. but that's another story), it will definitely give you something to think about.

Fat Head trailer:

Clip from the movie:

Adding on to Marge's blog last Tasty Tuesday, yes - make sure your cheat foods are worth it and it's okay to have one once or twice a week, but make sure to avoid the food 'itis'. With that said here is a guide from Fuel As Rx to help you choose "wisely" if/when you find yourself cramped for time with no lunch and somehow end up at a drive-thru window. Or if you're just out with some friends for some happy hour. Hitting the Restaurant: Caveman Style.

Recipe of the day: Halibut Cheeks and Asparagus, courtesy of Paleo Girls.

  • 1 lb. fresh Halibut Cheeks
  • Market Spice Seafood Seasoning Rub (or any seasoning of your choice)
  • Olive Oil
  • 2 Bunches Fresh Organic Asparagus
  • Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • Sea Salt (optional)
  • Preheat oven to 415.
  • Prep Asparagus by breaking off the tough ends (they'll snap in a natural spot about 1"-2" from the bottom). Wash and dry asparagus, and spread them on a baking pan.
  • Sprinkle with Olive Oil, Fresh Ground Black Pepper, and Sea Salt. In lieu of Sea Salt, you could also use a sprinkling of lemon juice.
  • Put the Asparagus in the oven, and set the time for 12 minutes. (12 minutes is good for medium-sized spears - if yours are extra fat give them an extra minute or two and vice versa for the petite ones).
  • Heat a skillet a little above medium heat - at about a level 6.
  • Coat the Halibut Cheeks with your seasoning of choice on both sides. Put a little Olive Oil in the skillet to heat, to keep the Halibut from sticking to the pan.
  • When the Asparagus have 6 minutes left, put the Halibut Cheeks in the skillet.
  • They only take 2-3 minutes per side. If you happen to have a big one in there, it might take just a minute longer. These cook quickly, so keep your eye on them!
  • When done, they should be flaky and break apart easily with your fork.
  • Plate up, and enjoy!
I don't know about you, but I can't wait to try this one out! Have a great week! :)

Be strong.

You may have noticed a "change of course" back towards strength training in the programing starting this week, as Andrew is fresh out of his Rippetoe Barbell Seminar/Certification. We are VERY excited about this.

When some of us think about fitness and working towards improving it, often times we are disillusioned by the misinformation that's been circulating around for so long. We automatically wonder, "What about the met-con?" or "Don't I need to finish my workout with cardio?"

It should be understood that lighter-weight, longer-duration efforts simply use a smaller percentage of your absolute strength repeated over and over. If you have a strong back squat, then performing a bodyweight air squat multiple times will be easy! This is true for all of our movements, whether pushing, pulling, squatting, opening the body, or closing it -- our ability to perform a huge volume of movements at lighter weight is dependent on our total (or absolute) strength.

With strength, one can more easily attain metabolic conditioning. This does NOT work reverse. Wanna perform better? Get stronger! Wanna smash your WOD times and PR? Get stronger! So.....

Let's all get stronger! We all have a lot of potential that we have not unlocked yet. That's why we are adding this to our training focus. And if you're doing these strength days with the correctly scaled weight and with all your effort, trust me you won't be asking for any additional "cardio" afterwards!

Savoring your Slips

Sugar.  It is difficult to find a processed item in the grocery store that doesn't have it in one form or another.  It's in everything.  And there's a reason for it.  It makes things taste good and it's addicting.  Unfortunately it's also horrible for us.  When you eat excess sugar (and excess really isn't that much, people!) and your glycogen storage space gets filled up, that left over sugar quickly converts to fat.  On top of that, it wreaks havoc on your digestive system. 

That being said - I've tried my darndest to steer clear of sugar for the past few years, but quite seriously over that past few months.  So, when my work place asked people to bring in treats for the annual bake sale fundraiser - my mind starting thinking about "healthy" options I could bring in or "paleo cookies" I could make.  And then I took a step back, shook my head and said, "Marge!  It's a freakin' bake sale!  People don't want your healthy food at a bake sale."

So, I made cookies.  Like, real honest to goodness butter + flour + sugar cookies.  And I made my favorite kind.  Snickerdoodle and molasses.  And I ate some of them too.  And damn!  The girl can bake!  They were really really good.

Okay - so what's the lesson here?  When making a healthful lifestyle change, you are going to have times when you don't adhere to your higher health standards.  There are going to be times when you "slip" and eat that cookie or eat that plate of fries or that pizza or that fill-in-the-blank-tasty-food.  And that is OKAY.  Just make it count - make it something awesome.  Don't blow your "cheats" on food you don't really love.  When they have birthday parties at work with store bought sheet cake and every one else is chowing down, I pass it up - cause I'd rather "slip" on something that actually tastes good.

Further reading:
To learn more about how sugar is processed in your body read this!
The Definitive Guide to Insulin, Blood Sugar & Type II Diabetes (and you'll understand it)

Because she says it better than me, read this!
The Whole9 Guide to Eating Dirty

And just so this isn't all about sugar slips - here's what I ate for dinner tonight.

Lettuce wrapped chicken burger:
  ~1/2 lb ground chicken (got this from the farmers market, you could use any ground meat)
  1 egg
  2 tbsp (roughly) almond flour
  shake shake shake of chili powder
  shake shake shake of cumin
  grind grind pepper
  shake shake red pepper flakes
  tiny bit of trader joe's crushed garlic (1/16 tsp? a little goes a long way)

Sorry - I don't measure spices very well!  Mix it all up good, make a patty or two, throw it on a skillet or foreman grill for a couple minutes.  Cut up some tomato, put some natural salsa on top - wrap it up in lettuce and you have a lettuce wrapped chicken burger!  I chopped up some asparagus and broccoli, had it steaming simultaneously and I had a meal in about 15 or 20 minutes.  Healthy cooking isn't complicated cooking!

Happy Birthday Adam!

Restarting Strength

This past weekend I attended the Starting Strength Seminar with Mark Rippetoe at CrossFit Eastside and what an amazing weekend it was. Rip and his amazing crew of coaches defined and reviewed coaching, strength, some basic anatomy, physiology and physics. We also learned from both lecture and practical breakout sessions how to squat, press, deadlift, bench press and power clean using their method.

This definitely opened my eyes as to what I should be doing as your coach. Expect to see more strength training! Like today...

Look in your journals to see where you're at. Let's drive hard on technique today (and from now on). Great job this weekend to all those who Totaled.

Getting out of the hole

When rising out from the bottom of the squat, keep your back angle the same the entire time. This requires you to raise the hips AND the chest at the same pace. This is essential to properly executing the movement and squatting heavier.

If your hips rise too quickly we visually see two things:
  • your butt goes up fast
  • and your back angle becomes more parallel.
I refer to this as "stripper dance". Keep that chest up.

From Mark Rippetoe and Lon Kilgore's STARTING STRENGTH:

Let's squat right!

Go Upside Down

Going upside down (inverted) is not only fun, it's actually really good for you.

Gravity is always pulling everything in our body down (stupid gravity!). The heart has to pump blood, our lifeline, around the body and up to your brain. When you're upside down, you give your heart a break and fully oxygenated blood goes right to your brain. Blood also saturates the lower lungs while air naturally enters the upper lungs. Flip it around and the blood saturates the upper lungs giving you healthier tissue and better blood-oxygen exchange.

The lymphatic system's job is waste removal and immune system response. It is basically the dump truck of the body, collecting and removing the toxins throughout the body.  It works using muscle movement and gravity. Going upside down every so often stimulates waste removal and strengthens your immune system.

Another plus is that it will greatly improve your balance, coordination and concentration. Yogis use handstands to strengthen and stretch the upper body (torso, shoulders, arms, and wrists). Learning the wall-assisted handstand will allow you to progress to freestanding handstands, handstand walking and, of course, handstand pushups.

If nothing else, they might just make you feel like a kid again! So go ahead and play around - go upside down...

What is Kefir?

I was first introduced to kefir at Healeo where I ordered a delicious Pomegranate Kefir Smoothie. To be honest I didn't even know what kefir was. The description of the drink just sounded good and I wanted to try something a little bit familiar since I wasn't used to raw and organic foods/drinks, or ordering a smoothie that didn't involve chocolate, whipped cream, caramel, other sugars, bad stuff etc. etc. I tried the drink and loved it. I've even expanded my palate and tried other food & drinks there (/plug for Healeo) but somehow the Pomegranate Kefir has my heart (or stomach?).

Shopping for groceries has become a lot more easier now that I've experimented with eating Primal/Paleo. I picked up a bottle of kefir at Whole Foods last week and have made my own smoothies at home. What is kefir and what, if any, are the benefits of it? To keep it simple, it is a fermented milk drink.

Some benefits of fermented foods:
  • assists in digestion
  • eliminates destructive pathogenic yeasts
  • cleans & strengthens intestines
  • promotes healthy bowel movement (yay!)
  • overall contributes to healthy immune system
  • considered to be a good probiotic intake
  • reduces food cravings
I haven't found a lot of recipes that contain kefir besides creating your own smoothies or simply drinking it on its own. Highly recommend it for a quick snack, pick me up, or something to fulfill your hunger until dinner time.

Athlete Profile: Margaret

Margaret K.

How'd you get into CrossFit?

My brother is a trainer in Chicago and had been trying to get me to do it for a long time. I didn't want to try it cause I didn't want him to be right. But I did and he was. I admit it now. :)

Your favorite/least favorite WOD? Why

Favorite workout: any workout we do on a Saturday. They always feel more energetic and bring out a good crowd.

Least favorite: Rowing a long distance

What is your least favorite movement?

Rowing and burpees, hands down.

Tell us about a recently acquired skill.

Bumpers on my backsquat! Whoop!

Goals for the month? For the year?

Need to get a kipping pullup and transition into using a 14# medicine ball and real pushups in order to start doing more workouts rx'd.

Who is your gym rival?

Sheena is my "gold-standard", but I have a ways to go to be as awesome as her. :)

What do you absolutely love about FCF?

Easy. The community - the members make any CrossFit gym what it is.

Chalk: yes or no?

No - it gets all over my clothes. Fashion over all else. ;)

Coffee or Tea? Why?

Tea - can't do coffee w/out cream and cream ain't paleo (unfortunately)

Star Wars or Star Trek? (for brownie points from Andrew)

If on a deserted island? Star Trek, cause there is just soooo much of it. Otherwise, Star Wars. Nothing beats old school Harrison Ford.

How has CrossFit made you better in different situations (ex: moving furniture, carrying groceries, running from a cheetah, wrestling a bear, etc.)

I used to run on a very regular basis long distances. I've noticed that even when I haven't run in a long time - I can go for a long run and I don't feel fatigued. I attribute that to the well rounded training I'm getting at FCF.

Favorite Paleo/Zone-ish Restaurant?

Casa del Mojito (delicious pulled pork + fried plantains), Rancho Bravo (delicious asada steak + guac)

Prefer the box or the tire? Why?

Box. The tire seems a little easier to jump onto (but it looks cooler!)

How has CrossFit changed your body?

I have noticeably stronger legs and back. Also - I have a bulging left arm compared to my weak right arm. :)

Favorite "cheat" meal?


Favorite kitchen tool?

Tie between my foreman grill and my cast iron skillet

Greatest personal accomplishment as a result of CrossFitting?

Cutting sugar out of my diet. I've been trying to do it for years - mostly because of a family history of colon cancer - but I feel like crossfitting gave me the final motiviation I needed to cut out that gut destroying - inflammation causing - insulin spiking - ohsodelicious substance.

Has CF made you change your idea of fitness and general health?

Absolutely, in more ways than I can explain.... but I'll try. I used to think I was really healthy and well rounded physically - but all I really did was a lot of cardio and use some crappy weight machines. I always avoided exercises that I didn't like and really rarely saw actual improvements - I was basically on a perpetual plateau. I think it took about 3 months of crossfitting for me to really start seeing improvements, but once I did they came so quickly and in such volume. If you think I'm weak now, you should have seen me back squat for the first time last summer. :) I sleep better, eat better, look better, feel better. I'd say it's been an overall lifestyle change for the better. Seeing how far I've come makes me excited for what's ahead!

Ode to Avocado and the Coronation of Paleo Queen

I'm in love with avocados and you should be too.  Why do I love them so much?  Because they feel like an indulgence when really they are good for me.  They contain oleic acid, a monosaturated fat - or the healthy-good-for-you-fat you always hear about.  I feel like avocados step up the game of just about any food you add them to.

I love to add them to my scrambled eggs, slice them and throw them on top of a burger patty, add them to a BLT wrap (bacon, tomato, avocado wrapped in crisp romaine lettuce - yum!), throw them in a salad, throw them in a food processor with some salsa (fresh - no sugar added) and lime and you have guacamole to dip veggies in or serve on meat, or just eat it plain with a spoon.  Seriously - the possibilities are endless.

If you haven't already, make friends with the avocado.  If it's been a while - reacquaint yourself.  

A couple avocado tricks from a self-proclaimed expert.
  • Buy in varying degrees of ripeness.  You are bound to want to eat one right when you get it home from the grocery store- so get a nice soft one, but keep a couple on hand that aren't so ripe - once they turn ripe their shelf life isn't too long.  
  • Err on the side of too ripe rather than not ripe enough.  An avocado that has not ripened fully is truly disappointing.
  • If you just want to eat half of the avocado, but you know it's going to get all brown and gross if you leave the other half in the fridge, use my sister's trick - Cut the avocado in half and keep the pit in one side (this is the side you are going to save).  Carefully scrape out the avocado from the other side leaving the skin in tact - place the empty skin back over the half with the pit so it looks like a whole avocado again.  Throw in a tupperwear or baggie in the fridge and the next day it won't be brown!  For reals.  Try it.
Here's a simple recipe to try out your new found love of avocados!

4 whole leaves romaine lettuce, washed and dried
1 tomato, sliced
4 slices of bacon, cooked
1/2 of an avocado, sliced
1/2 lb sliced turkey

I usually make it without the sliced turkey and add more veggies like peppers or steamed asparagus - but experiment with it and try other stuff out - I feel like even a sliced up hard boiled egg would be good with it and would add more protein.

In other news... The paleo challenge is over!  Eight people took on the challenge* and four committed to recording their food intake for every day of the month.  Last night we went out to dinner to binge on some non-paleo food and talk about our experiences.

Sweet crepes at "Hogwarts"

Congratulations to Faye for winning the title of Paleo Queen.  Faye rocked my socks off.  She went into the challenge pledging to eat an 80% paleo diet.  She was coming from a very non-paleo type diet (one of her staple foods prior to the challenge she listed was ramen).  She started the challenge off strong and I don't feel like she let up once.  She sky-rocketed past 80% and pretty consistently ate 90% paleo throughout the whole month of February.  But even better than that - she saw and felt so many changes in the way she felt that she has decided to keep eating this way - FOR LIFE!  Rock on, Faye!

She's being commended for her paleo adherence, but I feel like it should also be mentioned that she has been consistently working out and hitting the WODs with gusto.  She recently got herself on the board for doing Fran, Karen and Annie rx'd and has been generally PRing all over the place.  And remember that one time....? When she did 60 pushups with a 10kg bumper on her back???  That was awesome.

Congrats Faye!  And thanks to everyone who participated!  It was fun and rewarding.

Who's up for the next challenge?  Got ideas?  Things you'd like to see happen?  Let us know.
