Rest day!

Alright everybody, less than a week until we clean up our diets! Hopefully by now you have all browsed through the links under our nutrition page. If so, then you've probably checked out Robb Wolf's site. He's a guru when it comes to all things paleo, and his book, The Paleo Solution, just came out. It's fantastic and I highly recommend it. On his website, Robb offers some advice when it comes to shopping. He does discuss how staying on the edge of the store will help keep you on the right track, but he also goes a step further and gives some recommendations on what to buy. Check it out and use this list to help you during October!

From :


Protein: Ideally these options are grass fed or wild caught. If you cannot find those should you eat a bagel? No! Conventional options are fine. Beans and rice do NOT count.


Land: Pork, beef, lamb.

Sea: Trout, salmon, shrimp, crab. You know…fishy type stuff!

Air: Chicken, turkey, duck, ostrich.


Round things out with some good quality bacon, omega-3 enriched eggs and some items like chickenapple sausage to help you with breakfast on busy days.


Veggies: Ideally these are local and organic, but again, this should not be a deal breaker. Our local mega-food chain actually has the best produce outside of the farmers market, and at an amazing price. Shop with the season, which typically means what is on sale. Mix up the colors.


Fruit: Limit fruit to 1 serving per day if fat loss is your goal. A serving is not a whole watermelon. If you want to screw things up and not make progress, eat all the fruit you want, it’s your nickel, ride the ride as you like. In order of preference: Berries, melons, citrus, apples, pears. Bananas, papayas and mangoes are great for athletes post workout but dodgy for folks who want to lose weight.


Fats: Olive oil (extra virgin), coconut, avocado (oil and whole), macadamia (whole and oil), almonds, walnuts. If fat loss is a goal limit nuts to 1-2 oz. per day.


Odds & Ends: Marinara sauce, herbs, spices-curry powder, garlic, ginger, cilantro, garam massala, chili powder, black pepper, lemon zest, allspice, cinnamon, cumin, oregano, and basil. Get at least 20 herbs and spices to keep your cooking lively. Stock up on espresso, teas and mineral water as these are your beverages of choice.
