400 meter run

(5 rounds for time)

Time for a Paleo check in! One week is just a few days away, have you stuck to you goals? I'm going to use my soapbox here and ask you a question: Do you think all broccoli is equal? Which will taste better the stuff flash frozen in California, trucked or shipped across the nation to end up in your local supermarket or the broccoli grown down the road, bought from the farmer who grew it? If you haven't had the chance to try delicious local agriculture I suggest you do. I for one never really knew what broccoli tasted like and then a few weeks ago, we (my parents and I) got a local organic head of broccoli in our Community Supported Agriculture box. It was an amazing revelation, that such taste and life could come from something I've always hated. we pay $30 a week to pick up a bag of produce, we're never sure what we're gonna get because it's dictated by the growing season, but it's always fresh and local, and if not local then organic. It's enough for our family of 3 and has expanded what we cook and eat. It's more nutritious, tasty and earth friendly than what'll you'll pick up at Kroger, Publix's or Whole Foods.

For more resources check out Georgia Organics for Local Produce. And check out Eat Wild: Georgia for grass fed beef, organic eggs, chickens and raw milk. This I haven't done yet, but I intend on picking up some grass fed beef to let you all know what's up.

If you'd like to read more about the organic movement and why you should be eating this way look at either of Michael Pollen's books "The Omnivore's Dilemma" or "In Defense of Food" and Eric Schlosser "Fast Food Nation". If you'd like to go way back to the beginning of the whole slow food and organic movement in the U.S. check out Wendell Berry's "The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays".

  1. Hey Paul - Your Paleo challenge has sure helped me! You challenged us to one paleo meal a day and I'm doing 2 to 3 now consistently! I needed this balanced approach since I'm an "all or nothing" kind of guy. I'm not laying out on you all - I have a couple more weeks in this aircast for my ankle to heal. I'm hoping to come next week if you can work up a couple things to do that aren't too hard on the ankle. Cheers- Chad
