Teriyaki Chicken Thighs

Teriyaki Chicken Thighs

I just got home from an awesome weekend down in Carson, CA at the CrossFit Games. It was a blast. I stayed with the FitAID team, a sponsor of mine, in a really cool house in Palos Verdes. It was a beautiful home up on a hill and there were about 20 of us staying there. They hired a chef to make us dinner every night which was so great. The first night he made spaghetti squash with ground beef and chicken with a coconut curry sauce. Night two was chicken and steak fajita night. And on the last evening he made barbecued chicken and ribs with asparagus and corn on the cob. It was all so so good!

Did you know that it was National Ice Cream Day this past weekend? Of course I did. If you asked me what my favorite food or dessert was I would say ice cream. It's just so good. I love it. So of course I was busy eating way too much ice cream this weekend and hoarding this recipe. Okay I wasn't hoarding it, I just had a really busy weekend and I'm only now getting around to sharing it with you. But trust me, it was worth the wait.

It's kind of crazy how many things bacon goes with.

Quick and Easy Sriracha Slow Cooker Chicken

I'm always looking for quick, easy and tasty protein options. In addition to eating a paleo diet I also track my macronutrients. Eating the right balance of protein, carbs and fat helps to fuel my training, aid in my recovery and promote overall health. As an athlete this is so important to me! I find that carbs and fat are pretty easy to come by. Fruit, vegetables, avocados, nuts, etc. can all be eaten raw. But getting the right amount of protein every day is the most important thing and I hate being caught off guard.

Red, White and Blue Berry Custard Pie

How is it July already? Crazy! But it is my favorite time of year. So I'm not complaining. I wish it could be summer year round. The sunshine, barbecues, pool parties, camping, road trips, I love it all. Spending time with friends at the beach or the lake. Making cocktails and just enjoying life. With the Fourth of July coming I wanted to make something yummy and festive. A paleo treat that all of my friends would be digging into. And admiring for it's beauty. I decided on a vanilla custard pie topped with strawberries, blueberries and pie crust stars.
