I was born and raised on a dairy farm outside Canon City, Colorado. Because of my upbringing and knowledge of diet, farming and business, I advocate knowing, buying and consuming as close to the source as possible. I fell in love with Crossfit as one of the few environments, particularly in athletics and competition, in which women are either just as strong as men or are at least on an even playing field.

I take pride in being a part of a community that reinforces "strong" and "fit" as the compliments. As an independent and fitness minded consumer, I tend to shy away from restrictive diets. Paleo allows me the freedom to eat the foods I enjoy while remaining nutritionally superior to their processed equivalents. I love the way I feel when I fuel my body with whole Paleo meals and after a WOD. Euphoric is not an exaggeration. My goal is to bring others to understand what Paleo is, why it works and why they should try it. The false stigmas about Paleo are rampant and various, but my knowledge is based entirely on what I've learned through personal experience and research.

Mushroom and Carrot Salsa

This dip is definitely a fav in my home of 5 college girls.  Instead of having regular pico this salsa is different and super tasty.  Don't be afraid if you are not a fan of mushrooms! The mushrooms absorb all of the lime juice--leaving you with a tangy crunchy salsa taste.




Ingredients
  • 1 cup of shredded carrots (about I rarely measure)
  • 1 container of mushrooms
  • 1 onion
  • 1 bunch of cilantro
  • 3-4 limes
  • generous amount of seasonal salt
  • pepper


Instructions

1. Slice the mushrooms, onion and carrot and chop the cilantro; place in bowl.
.Squeeze lime over the salsa, ensuring no seeds find their way into the bowl. Mix until well incorporated.
3. Add seasoning salt, to your taste.
