I’m kind of a copycat. These are pretty dang close to my Sweet Potato Brownies, minus the sweet potato. Just trust me ok? I honestly don’t think they are QUITE as good as the sweet potato brownies, but still pretty damn delicious. And I love them right now because they have no nuts in them. And I’ve said goodbye to nuts for the time being. We’ve parted ways. I do shed some tears at times thinking about it.

Ok, I have some big things to talk about. BIG things.

First and foremost, I need to introduce you all to an awesome guy. His name is Ben, or you can call him ‘That Burpee Guy’. He is trying to raise money for Children’s Hospital Foundations Australia (CHFA) and is doing so by doing a burpees every single day. Each day of the year he adds one burpee to the previous day’s total until the 31st December 2012 when I will complete 366 burpees to finish the Challenge. Well, being the awesome guy he is, he did burpees in honor of PaleOMG. 165 to be exact! Check out his video on YouTube and check out his cause! I asked if he would do dancing burpees. And he did. What a stud! We gotta support what this guy is doing! Please check out his stuff!!

Now onto the second big thing!

Today, Wednesday June 20th, I will be speaking on the radio station Primal Diet – Modern Health with Beverly Meyer at 11am CST. We will be chatting about how to cook without starches or dairy! Should be  fun chat. I’m so excited to be invited on her show, especially since she has chatted with people like Sarah Fragoso from Everyday Paleo, who was one of my inspirations to start a blog! You’ll be able to listen live on Voice America or be able to download it on itunes later! Be sure to check it out. You can hear how weird my voice is.

Now for the last exciting news. Don’t stop reading now, you’re almost there.

If you are a woman AND in the Colorado area, this news is for you! At CrossFit Jai in the Highlands, I will be hosting an All Women’s Lifting Seminar on Saturday June 30th from 12-2pm. We will be reviewing the clean & jerk and snatch and learning a ton of progressions of the movements. If you were intimidated by lifting or just want to get better at these lifts, this is the perfect class for you. This environment will be provide an encouraging atmosphere to learn and become more efficient with your CrossFit and lifting skills. Check out the link above to sign up! Any woman is welcome!

Ok I’m done with big things. These brownies are delicious. That’s pretty big.

    This looks amazing, I can’t wait to try it. I’ve been preparing recipes out of Nikki Young’s Paleo cookbooks and they have been a life saver. I wrote a review about it here if anyone is interested.

  3. Lauren @ WWoB says:

    JB- I’m actually trying to push my weight up a little and am trying to find decent calorie/protein sources to help with that. Eating a pound of meat at every meal and then again for snacks tends to get old. Thoughts on how to sneak non-nut protein into these or the sweet potato version? Whey? Extra egg white or two? Love the sweet potato version as you have it, just needing a little good-source calorie boost. Thanks.

    1. juli says:

      Hmmmmm that’s a tough one. I’m nervous that adding another egg will mess up the consistency. I’d say just consuming larger snacks with some meat and more sweet potato may help gain that weight you want. But that’s coming from a girl who has an easy time gaining weight 😉

  5. Taylor says:

    Thanks for cutting out the nuts! They make me bloated and give me such bad stomach pain 🙂 excited to see some more recipes without them!

  6. Hayley says:

    If plane tickets weren’t so expensive for that weekend I would totally fly out for your class! I’ve got friends in Denver (and I’m planning on moving out there!) so it would be perfect 🙂 Make sure and let us know when you are having another one!!

  7. Darika Siegel says:

    These didn’t last very long at the last party. Tip for all: double the recipe!

  8. Jo-Ani Mercier says:

  9. cdbouncer says:
