Shredded Buffalo Ranch Chicken

Open workout 17.2 – makes two total RX’d workouts! As much as I wanted muscle up glory – just wasn’t going to happen. I was just happy that I even made it to the muscle ups round in 7:37. Plenty of time to seek that “Open magic”, but just didn’t happen. And I’m fine with…

Turkey Chili

17.1 completely knocked me out. 182 reps at the time cap. It was my first RX’d Open workout and I managed to feel it in every inch of my aching body. Paired with the stomach flu late Friday night and into the majority of Saturday – my weekend was not pleasant. Needless to say, meal…

Casein Cookies

There’s recipes for casein cookies all over the interwebs, but many of them are way over my macro intake. However, a fellow Crossfitter…

Chicken Pho

One of my favorite foods, and easily adaptable for the current RP diet template I’m on is Vietnamese pho. An aromatic broth accompanied with tender marinated chicken breasts and an assortment of vegetables will make you think twice about your typical “bland” meal prep. Ingredients: Grilled chicken Whole wheat ramen noodles Bean sprouts JalapeƱo Scallions…
