We are almost through one month of the challenge as as we may have expected the holidays and some bad weather have presented some big challenges for the competitors in the paleo challenge. Take heart! There are still over 60 days to effect the greatest changes in your life. Keep writing down your food. Bring your journal in for us to look at periodically so we can help you fine tune things and fortify your resolve. You have something that no one else in the world who is trying to make healthy nutrition a way of life-Mark and Sarah. We are at your service and really really want to help you succeed-please use us to the full.

To every one who would like to win-keep commenting!!! Also the race is long and far from over. There are quite a few of you who are within reach. As January rolls around and the rest of the world makes resolutions to go on a diet go ahead and join them, that is perhaps for the first few weeks we will actually be going with the grain (but not eating it of course.) Gyms around the country will be filled with people and all of them will be hoping to look great by summer. Your chances of achieving that and other more important goals are far more likely to be achieved and when the the weight stacks on the machines are motionless, and the elliptical machine motors are silent you will still be hitting Pr’s and talking paleo with the rest of us, celebrating the achievements and milestones and hopefully asking yourself ‘What was life like before CrossFit and paleo?’

  1. Greg B. that website looks awesome! When I was reading the list of good fuel and not so good fuel I noticed that vinegar was under NOT so good fuel, does anyone know why?

  2. Lindsey,
    From what I know, the vinegar is not highly recommended as it can raise your Ph balance. However, Mark and Sarah have allowed a small amount of vinegar in the rules. It is best to keep it to as much of a minimum as you can I think, and apple cider vinegar would be the preferred choice.

  3. So seeing as though I did not behave myself over the holidays and am now trying to get back on track, I once again am having to fight cravings…. I can say that my desire for a cookie or something even comparable was pretty intense to day but instead I had the paleo pancakes made with banana, egg and almond butter I have to say it did the trick. So if you are like me and are starting over I feel your pain but will succeed (one meal at a time). If you stayed the course through the festivities…. Kudos!

    @mark…. What are the chances of getting a workout for my week In the Bahamas? I know there is a gym where we are staying but have no clue what is in it!

  4. I was with Jude in Hyannis this evening and we grabbed dinner at Bankok Kitchen. I was a little nervous as I have not yet attempted eating out on Paleo. I had the red curry with chicken and so I wouln’t be tempted I told them I did not need the rice. It is crazy that now my temptation would be rice but, it just goes so well with Thai food. Dinner was great though. Healthy and delicious and my date was gorgeous.

  5. This is a quick “shout-out” for Greg Benton.

    In addition to being a wealth of excellent information on the blog for the Paleo Challenge, I’ll speak for the 0630 class saying that Greg’s performance in his WOD’s are highly motivating. He’s setting the bar for all of us early risers and we appreciate the effort.

    Kudos, Bro.

  6. Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

    1 spaghetti squash
    1 container of ground turkey
    1 medium can of tomato juice
    1/4 cup coconut flour
    1 onion finely diced
    6 gloves of garlic
    1 tsp red pepper flakes
    1 tbs of oregano
    1 tsp of basil

    Preheat oven to 375. Poke holes all over the squash. Cook 1 hour to 11/2.

    Cook ground turkey in separate pan.

    Saute onions in 1 tbs of olive oil about 10 min. Add garlic and pepper flakes.

    Add tomato juice, oregano, basil.

    Bring to a boil. Wisk in coconut flour a little at a time (to thicken sauce).

    Add turkey to sauce.

    Let simmer about an hour.

    When squash is ready take out of the oven, cut in half, spoon out seeds. Take a fork and shred out squash.

    Put squash in a bowl and top with meat sauce.
