Real-Deal Chocolate Chip Cookies

AUTHOR: Danielle Walker - AgainstAllGrain.com

SERVES: 1 dozen

Ingredients:
  • ¼ cup palm shortening, ghee, or grass-fed butter
  • ¼ cup coconut palm sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1½ cups blanched almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate pieces (just chop up a dark chocolate bar)
  • ¼ cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips

Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a food processor, cream the palm shortening, coconut sugar, honey, egg, and vanilla for about 15 seconds until smooth and fluffy.
  3. Add the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda and sea salt and mix again until combined, about 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl if needed in order to incorporate all of the flour. Pulse once or twice more.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
  5. Place golf-ball sized balls of dough on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or a SilPat. Using another sheet of parchment on top of the dough, flatten them slightly with the palm or your hand or a spatula. The cookies don’t spread much so create the size and thickness you want prior to baking them.
  6. Bake for 9-12 minutes, until slightly golden around the edges


Chocolate Ice Cream

Ingredients
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup 100% raw organic honey (Angela's secret maple syrup)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Instructions
  1. Place your cold coconut milk, honey, vanilla, and cacao powder in a blender and mix well
  2. Place your frozen bowl for your ice cream maker in the machine and start it, immediately pour your coconut milk in and let the process begin
  3. It will take anywhere from 10-20 minutes, keeping your ingredients cold helps it set faster
  4. Once done, transfer your ice cream to another bowl and place in the freezer for 30 minutes to an hour to help set it more
  5. Enjoy

July 9th, 2014 (It's Time to PR...Sweet)

As we gear up for today's 1RM here are some great tips for you everyone to think about before shooting for a new PR...

1. Warm Up to excite the nervous system (Ex. Box Jumps, Jump Ropes, etc). Don't worry we will help you with this part:)

2. Move with the bar quickly and efficiently to set the movement pattern in your brain.

3. Add weight in equal but fairly large amounts. Don't rep yourself to death!

4. Don't attempt your previous 1RM go past it!

5. Once past 80% of previous 1 RM make sure and 3 to 4 minutes between attempts.

6. Power of intention! Believe you will get this lift!!

Be Safe, Get Excited, and Have FUN!!!

Tuesday July 8, 2014 (This is a great article from Louisa) READ IT!

July marks a year since my bout with Rhabdo and as the weather gets hot and summer kicks into full swing I  want to remind everyone about the importance of taking care of their body. It's also important to remember that Rhabdo isn't prejudice and can strike anyone. Don't be fooled into thinking that just because your in great shape you are free of risk. In fact, athletes that are in great shape and coming off of a rest period are at an elevated risk. Also it's important to understand this isn't a CrossFit only deal, marathon runners, endurance athletes, car accidents, any many more scenarios can create Rhabdo and it is a serious situation not to be taken lightly! If you don't know what Rhabdo is or if you want to learn more, please take the time to read this great article by Louisa!
