Grilled Chicken + Mixed Greens + Cashew-Soy Dressing

Today is the last day of the Crossfit Games and I'm pretty sad that it's almost over. It's been exhilarating to watch the most bad ass women and men fight for the top spot and earn the name of "Fittest on Earth." While I may never compete at that elite of a level, it's definitely…

Casein Cookies
