Poached Eggs Over Asparagus

Poached Eggs Over Asparagus

There really isn't anything earth shattering about this recipe, but nevertheless it's delicious and a typical breakfast for me.

Flexible Dieting

Flexible Dieting

I finally decided to delve deeper into what is known as "flexible dieting". Why the sudden interest? Well it's actually not so sudden, and as you know I've talked a lot about counting macros, trying to better understand macros, and what I've done to find a healthy and sustainable diet.

She had read books on flexible dieting from a friend of ours Krissy Mae Cagney. Well actually she read them long before we even knew Krissy, but ironically we've both crossed paths with her separately. Although I knew Krissy through social media for quite some time, I finally met her a couple years ago at Mark Bell's gym in Sacramento. Krissy lives in Reno and dates a good friend and teammate of mine. She's also very involved in the CrossFit community so we cross paths often now. She's a good friend and an awesome person.
