Paleo Sloppy Joes – Talon Talks

From the Tara’s Pantry segment on Talon Talks, (that is our podcast;)…here is what Tara’s kitchen will be cooking up this weekend:

This recipe is a mix of two I found from Paleo Comfort Foods and Paleo Newbie. I chose to combine recipes in order to get some more veggies in, as I am always trying to do. This is a fairly easy recipe, because you can just chop, throw in a pot, and simmer. You can also make a ton of it! This recipe calls for 2 pounds of grass-fed beef….I will be doubling it when I make it this week. I will also be baking a bunch of sweet potatoes and use this to top them because this makes the perfect post-WOD snack, as it is a good source of protein and complex carbohydrate.

As promised from the “What’s in Tara’s Pantry” segment on our Talon Talks podcast…

With the large amount of traveling we have done in the last two weeks…once to Cincinnati for the Central East Regionals where our very own coach Will Moorad took 3rd place, earning himself a trip to the CrossFit Games this summer, and once to Seacrest Beach, Florida…where Will tied the knot, people were wanting to know an answer to a question we get a lot:

“How do you keep to the Paleo lifestyle when you travel?”

Rustici Software And The Power Of Community

RusticiGroup

“We are a company that embraces fitness (my partner and I have long exercised at lunch). We have bicycles available for people to commute to lunch. We have a shower in the office that’s used frequently. Etc. Group activities create social bonds. Our social events often include some element of friendly competition because that brings people together. CrossFit is a perfect example of camaraderie through shared struggle and striving for goals.”
