    Kick A** Kale Salad

    Kick A** Kale Salad

    Kale is an excellent source of Vitamin K, A, C, and Manganese.  It is high in nutrients and low in calories.  The best way to bring out the hidden health benefits of kale according to The World’s Healthiest Foods, by George Mateljan is to “let it sit for a minimum of 5 minutes, optimally 10 minutes, after cutting, before eating or cooking.” To prepare your kale, simply wash and stack the leaves to cut several at a time, then cut ½ inch slices and discard the thick stems.  Let sit in a large bowl and then prepare your...

    Check Jenny Out!

    She comes to us fresh from Montana and works as a nurse at Enloe.  Don’t let those cute blond pigtails fool ya…she is a MONSTER!  She is nursing a sore chest muscle and instead of taking a week off training she inquired about personal training.  We thought it would be good for her to continue with a couple sessions on her own until she felt confident to jump into the group classes.  But after just a couple sessions, you can see she is ready!  Check her out, tire flippin’ it up out the back gate!  Be sure to...

    David’s Rock Cod in White Wine Sauce

    David’s Rock Cod in White Wine Sauce

    He suggested we take the fish and cook it up asap, since it was so fresh.  So that’s exactly what I did!  He even had a recipe attached!  I had to compromise and use a few different ingredients.  My fish still turned out so moist and yummy, but I think his recipe sounds better…so give it a try! Use a Pyrex dish that is at least an inch deep.  Into this dish, add white wine until it is at least ¼ to ½ inch deep across the bottom (figure ½ as deep as your thickest fillet).  Then add 4-6 tablespoons of...

    It’s BBQ Season! Enjoy!

    The burger recipe makes about eight, so you can BBQ once and have leftovers for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner! Burgers: 1 lb of ground turkey 1 lb of ground grass-fed beef Diced onion Fresh minced garlic/powder 1-2 eggs 2 teaspoons oregano Salt & pepper Make into patties, BBQ on medium for about 3-4 min. on each side. When we were down in Aromas for the NorCal Qualifiers we came across some sauce that they drizzled over meat at the lunch booth.  Come to find out it was a Chimichurri sauce.  I actually didn’t...

    As Seen On TV—The Ped Egg

    As Seen On TV—The Ped Egg

    Brought to my attention by some of my noon Elements folks (you know who you are ), the Ped Egg is a legit product for removing those pesky calluses we all have built up on our hands.  We’ve tried everything from fingernail files, sandpaper, razors, even teeth (ouch!).  By shaving down your calluses regularly, you will hopefully prevent your hands from ripping, from all the kipping! I suggest picking one up at Bed, Bath & Beyond for a measly $9.99 and get to taking care of your calluses ASAP!  I see a MAX Pull-up in your...

    Kipping LIke Krazy!

    As many of you know, a few sessions into the program we introduce the kip and then progress into the kipping pull-up.  Well these two ladies got the kip pretty fast and were ready for the next step and moments later they were kipping like mad women!  Check them out! Not only are these two ladies going to become superstar CrossFitters, but our current 7pm OnRamp is chalk full of some stellar folks!  They are a fun bunch to coach, so please watch out for them in the coming weeks and give them a warm CrossFit Norcal...
