Sex with your Pants On, and now that I have your attention…Recipes!

This week I asked around the gym to find out if there were any recipes that folks might like to have…and what I heard were requests for things like “paleo banana bread”, or “paleo pumpkin cheese cake”.  While there are PLENTY of recipes out there that I could recommend, I DON’T WANT TO.

It reminded me of a blog I read a while back from our friends at  At some point…we all try to ‘cheat’ the paleo system.  We think that we can still make pizza, brownies, pancakes…and by simply switching around a few ingredients we are absolved from the consequences that come from eating a treat.   Too often these ‘treats’ become a staple back in our diet.  Read here to find out how Paleo-fying your junkfood is like “having sex with your pants“… less then satisfying!

And…now for this week’s recipes:

Kale with Cranberries
Everyday Paleo Enchiladas
Basic Tomato Sauce
Sweet Potato and Pumpkin Soup
Sunshine Sauce (peanut sauce replacement!)

    LOL!!! Great post Natalie!…and very true! We all try to cheat the paleo system at some point, but I promise you it will come to bite you in the butt. Allow some cheats (meaning paleo cheats) in there every now and then and you’re okay, but know that just because a recipe is grain free and dairy free doesn’t mean it’s good for us.

  2. wow Natalie, way to stick us to it.

  3. Wow, had my hopes up Natalie, so much disapointment now…

  4. I know this was an attempt at humor, but one of the things we should be doing is not perpetuating all the stereotypes of jock humor. There is already a stigma against us who focus too much on our bodies and sometimes the club does it unnecessarily. We have all the same issues and problems as those who don’t do the workouts so to pretend that the only way to get our attention is to capitalize of the word sex is juvenile and inappropriate. I would guess that was not your intention but I thought I would share.

  5. I would have to disagree, Tgirl. Censoring personality and sense of humor on a gym’s blog is unnecessary, as long as it’s not derogatory towards a person or group. Sex humor isn’t only limited to jock humor, and it’s not the only way to get a reader’s attention. But it is an effective way! I appreciate the levity as it was meant – to amuse, not limit or marginalize or degrade. Just thought I would share back!

  6. Man I have been kicking butt with the 10 minute trainer program. I will be looking badass for spring break!
