Fat CrossFitter: The Issue with Pictures

There’s nothing quite like the Sound and Fury that occurs when someone posts an unflattering photo of me online. Gasps of horror. Rending of clothes. Gnashing of teeth. Hurling of curses.

It’s cute.

Coach Dave has experienced this phenomenon. So many times, in fact, that for a while he stopped…

Absolutely inspiring. Click through the links too. And then just go dance or move or lift or run or play or whatever you want to with this most amazing physical thing you will ever own.

Thanks for the reminder.

Taste-Testing An Incredibly Realistic Salt Replacement (That You’ve Been Eating All Along)
BY ARIEL SCHWARTZ, fastcoexist.com

Nu-Tek Salt contains 70% less sodium than your traditional table salt. Big food producers have already started using it, but soon you’ll be able to buy it yourself. Can it replace what’s in your shaker?

For a week this past May, I used a new sal…

Anyone else think this is a bad, bad idea? We evolved to eat salt, albeit not as much as we eat these days with processed foods. The article and even the CEO point to the analogy with artificial sweeteners; basically you can now ingest more of the fake stuff.

See how well that has worked for the weight loss crowd or the diabetics.

Mango + Avocado Salsa on Pan-Seared Salmon

Mango and Avocado Salsa by Michelle Tam http://nomnompaleo.com

As the defiant second child growing up in a multigenerational household, I made it a point to assert my contrariness whenever I could.

You want me to wear a coat because it’s 30°F outside and the windows are frosted over? No way! I’m wearing a TANK TOP. And the reason my teeth are chattering is ‘cause I’m sooo HOT.

The power struggles spilled over to the kitchen table, too. My parents and grandparents loved tropical fruit—papaya, guava, durian—but I would cross my arms and turn my nose up in disgust. I don’t want to try that mango. Papaya and durian? YUCK. I despise tropical fruit! Blech! [Insert gagging, retching noises here.]

I hate to admit it, but I should’ve listened to my elders. Especially about mango—I crave that fragrant, tender fruit now, especially the golden Ataufo variety from Mexico, which is similar to the Manila mango (a.k.a. champagne mango).

(I still can’t stand papaya and durian, though. Gross.)

One of my favorite summer dishes is pan-seared salmon topped with a tangy and refreshing mango and avocado salsa—it’s quick, simple, and delicious. It’s easy on the eyes, too.
