I’m doing a cooking demo at the PaleoFX conference today, sautéeing up a batch of the sweetly-spiced Cauliflower Rice Pilaf from Well Fed, while wearing a microphone headset like Madonna. I may or may not vogue while on stage; the jury is still out.
Since you all can’t be there with us, I thought I’d share the recipe, just in case you want to stir up a batch yourself. Vogue-ing...

Warning: workout war stories ahead.
As I explained last week, although I’ve been lax about sharing my workouts in my blog, I have been doing the workouts — and thanks to my new good health report card, I’m hitting ’em pretty hard. And loving it! Here’s what I’ve been to, sweat-wise.
Wednesday, March 20: Strength
It’s Week 3 of the Wendler 5/3/1 cycle, which means...

I know everyone isn’t interested in my hormone experiments, so if you’re less than enthralled by tales of T3 and TSH, skip this one. For my #FUThyroid friends, welcome!
To get up to speed, you might want to read these posts:
My status in April, 2012, a.k.a., the one where I decide to see Dr. Sebring
My update from July, 2012, a.k.a., the one where I get a little better but have more work to...

I know that the arrival of Friday should be cause for celebration — I’m just flummoxed to realize it’s here already! I’ve written so many blog posts in my head this week: an update on my thyroid situation (headline: I’m good!), a new recipe, a kickass collection of Rants & Raves, tales from under the barbell, yoga news. All written… IN MY HEAD.
Instead of typing,...

If you’re anything like me, you’ve got a monologue running inside your noggin almost all the time. Here’s a potentially scary, representative excerpt for you:
I wonder what if people are going to like the new Well Fed 2 recipes. Jeez, I’m hungry. Oh! Look at that cute puppy! Man, I can’t wait to go our trip to Europe. I wonder how I’m going to eat and exercise right....

When I took the knife skills class at Whole Foods last year, I picked up a bunch of new good better habits (Confession: I’m still lazy about keeping my knife sharp. Terrible!) and added a few essentials to my kitchen arsenal, including a massive cutting board that I leave on my countertop at all times, a knife sharpener (ahem), and — perhaps the least sexy but surely my favorite purchase — a...

It’s 3/14, a.k.a., Pi Day, a.k.a, an excuse to eat pie. But we’re not eating any pie. Oh, no! We’re eating paleo-approved, protein-packed pie. Or should I say π?
Here are three recipes that will cure your craving for pie and won’t leave you feeling remorseful tomorrow, in a pie-induced hangover, filled with gluten regret. Instead, you’ll feel powerful, positive, proficient,...

I’m part of a casual writing group that meets once a month to share our writings on a particular topic. This month, our writing prompt was “hair.” The first thing that came to mind was the time my mom gave me cornrows. Oh, friends! I was a chubby 11-year-old with braces and no makeup. Meanwhile, Bo Derek was running on the beach with cornrows and was universally understood to be a 10. Let’s...

In my quest for lean superhero-ness, I’m following the Wendler 5/3/1 strength training program. Twice a week, Dave and I are hitting the craptastic gym in our Converse to lift heavy stuff and work on skills.
Apricot, if you must know.
My favorite jelly flavor: apricot. Not that I eat jelly anymore, but my legs are jelly-fied from squats this morning, so I keep accidentally thinking of apricot jelly....

Do you know the Fat-Burning Man? You probably should. Abel James is an author (Intro to Paleo), fat-loss coach (check out the LeanBody Program), musician (The Musical Brain: The Evolution of Music, Language, and the Brain), radio host (Fat-Burning Man Show), and a self-described health crusader. (I say SUPERHERO!)
A former strategic advisor to the food and beverage industry, Abel now acts as a...

The fabulous Nom Nom Paleo — who not only makes delicious Paleo and Whole30 food, but is also one of the best-quality humans I’ve had the good fortune to meet — is a finalist in a coconut milk cooking contest sponsored by Cook Taste Eat. She’s ahead right now, but her competition is hot on her heels.
This is what Cook Taste Eat has to say about the contest:
Cook Taste Eat is the culinary...
