Every once in a while I get a craving for something sweet. Okay who am I kidding, I get a craving for something sweet all of the time. And recently I had a craving for donuts. I have this cute little mini donut pan, you know, because if they're mini you won't eat as much right? That's also false. Especially when you get crazy in the kitchen and make a dozen different flavors and feel the need to try one of each. But I promise if you make these for a party they'll be a hit! Not all of the toppings below are paleo, but I have plenty of paleo options for you to enjoy if that's what you choose!
If you were going to prepare a feast for 20 people, what would you prepare? What macro and micronutrients would you prioritize? What about supplements and superfoods? A lot of people ask me what I eat, how much I eat and why. As a professional athlete and someone who cares about the food that I put into my body, I'm constantly prepping food, experimenting with new recipes and ingredients, trying new things, and finding ways to maximize my performance and recovery through my diet. I think there's a tremendous benefit in learning about what others eat and how it affects their performance and day to day life. And I also believe that we need to experiment with our own diets to truly understand what works for us as individuals.
Although I'm in Utah for a month having a blast training and competing with my GRID team the San Francisco Fire, I'm missing out on one of my favorite events of the year back home, Passport Weekend. Passport Weekend is put on by the Delta Farm & Winery Trail which is a trail of farm stands and wineries through the California Delta. The trail winds along the rivers and sloughs of the delta along scenic highway 160, right where I grew up. Our region is known for its pears, cherries, wine grapes, corn, alfalfa, asparagus, and a variety of vegetables. I grew up helping my dad level his fields and I just recently learned how to drive a tractor to help him prepare the fields for planting.
