Anyone besides Pat and I do any burpees today? Or was it a rest day? Either way it’s all good. Look forward to seeing everyone this week.
The kids playing after a WOD and loving burpees and… OVERHEAD Squats!
Thursday we will have a “Trim the Turkey” WOD at 10 am for everyone. We will close the rest of the day so that we can all go gobble up some Turkey, veggies and my favorite this time of year: Pumpkin Pie. I am begging Michelle to make me a Paleo version so I have less guilt. Other days this week will be normal class times.
Do you buy your fruit or nuts at Costco? What about berries like: strawberries, blueberries, blackberries etc.? How about their almonds, walnuts, pine nuts, pecans and others? For the amount we eat and use in our daily nutrition we couldn’t afford to buy them from Whole Paycheck Market, Safeway, IGA or even our local farmer’s market. We buy them from Costco and love them.They are always great, fresh, taste better than the supermarket, last longer and are cheaper.
I started wondering if the berries were genetically enhanced or “bred”, if they were artificially colored or modified somehow with a spray to look brighter in color, or if they generously used pesticides and other chemicals. Well after checking the labels and looking into the websites of a couple suppliers (Well-Pict and Naturipefarms) I am breathing easier. While not entirely organic, the suppliers have provided answers to many of my questions and they don’t use or do any of the above. No steroids or gene enhancement, sprays, or artificial colors. While not pesticide free, they state they use organic and non-synthetic fertilizers in their soil, avoid pesticides as much as possible and stay below federal guidelines, and use biological and non-pesticide controls for fighting bugs and disease. The nuts also are selected from some of the best growers in the best regions known for their highest quality and food safety. They use responsible growing practices and don’t bleach or dye the nuts. For more info on the types of nuts sold at Costco read about it here.
Laura had a great idea, we need a place to share our Paleo or Zone recipes. I created a Face book “Discussion” under the SnoRidge CF group page to post recipes. If this is helpful or you have other suggestions let us know. Post those recipes and start cooking!
