Oh hey! I’m starving. Not actually starving, more just craving dried figs and wishing I had them by the barrel full. Does that exist? I’m gonna invent it. It will be a paleo phenomena. Juli’s Barrel O’ Figs. Can’t wait for that business. Every CrossFit gym will be busting out the seems with dried figs. Do figs make you poop or is that prunes? Sh*t could get ugly. No pun intended. Sorry I just grossed you out.

So it’s been a good couple two weeks. I’ve been having pain in my elbow, behind my knee, and now my shin. Awesome JB. Way to keep yourself together. Way to go. I need to learn how to take care of myself. It’s called a lacrosse ball. Sit on it. Roll on it. Weep on it. Never rolled on a lacrosse ball? Are you wondering what the hell I’m even talking about? Check out MobilityWod and start learning to take care of your body. Just sayin.

I’m about the link the sh*t out of things. It may be too much for you. If you can’t handle it, I may call you a p*ssy. If you are offended by what I said, insert an ‘I’ where the * is and you won’t be so mad. We cool? Cool. But seriously, utilize the links. Links are our friends.

Dear Diary,

Let’s chat about what I’m obsessed with this week.

  1. I’m digging music this week. Like big time. I’ve been listening to A LOT of songs on repeat. Replay? Whatever. And this song by Pat Noonan is epic. Such a sick cover. And he’s pretty the nicest human being EVER. Check him out! As for the plethora of other songs I’ve been listening to Calvin Harris, BT & Adam K, Justin Bieb’s girl Selena Gomez (I sing this song at the top of my lungs in the car. I think I sound good. So childish)  and Avicii. Repeat. All songs. All day long. Laura is lucky she has been out of town or she would be annoyed as f*ck. Speaking of annoying, this is the worst song known to man. So many links.
  2. Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter. This company is local so I have only seen the vanilla kind at a couple different Whole Foods, but HOLY SH*T, is is divine. Clark introduced me to it. I love you Clark. I bought like 18 packets when I found it the other day. Ok, 4, but still, it is sooooo good. Totally worth every cent. I just almost spelled scent. That would have worked too, though.
  3. Italian Sparkling Mineral Water. You can buy it anywhere and IT’S AWESOME. I’m not a huge soda person, but if I were and was trying to embrace the paleo lifestyle, this would be an great alternative. The carbonation makes you have to go to the bathroom too. Healthy bathroom time = winning!
  4. Honey crisp apples. I don’t know why you buy anything else. Other than the fact they are $3/lb. Effing stupid. But totally worth it. All I’m craving right now is apple pie nachos. My god those that stuff tastes like pure sex. Ew.
  5. I’m pretty much obsessed with being able to finally park on my street again. The snow has f*cked things up. Driving down the streets of my neighborhood is frightening enough, 1 car can barely fit at a time. Dear Colorado, you are stupid. Try snowing in the mountains, I hear people here like to ski on snow for some reason.

    that was a fun day
  6. You know how I REALLY, REALLY dig figs, well this week I’ve been loving dates a little bit more. Probably because you can cut them open and stuff them with sh*t. Anything you damn well please for that matter. So I’ve been stuffing mine with almond butter. I can thank my girlfriend Zanna for that. She’s a genius. Try this. My mouth is sweating thinking about it. Yep, sweating.

    thats a thing of beauty right therrrr
  7. Gum. I purchased a lot the other day. But I have noticed that I tend to chew kinda loud at times. Mostly when I’m by myself, but then I seem like a valley girl, or an asshole. More like an asshole. I hate people who viciously chew their gum. Hey now, calm your jaw down. It’s utilized for meat.

    that’s the lengh of my lap. crotch shot
  8. Carrot Cake Cupcakes by Health-Bent. Since it was Jason’s bday this week, I made him these little amazing cakes of joy. When I first started paleo, I made these and instantly knew I could stick with paleo. Megan and Brandon are genius human beings. I love them. I have major paleo crushes on them.
  9. Dancing. I need to dance. Laura and I and a bunch of other girlfriends are going to go out tonight and dance. Not drinking and still having to ability to make a fool of yourself on the dance floor without caring one bit is pretty epic. I can’t wait.
  10. And I saved the best for last. I just recently tried this product out and I.Am.In.Love. Do you like coffee? If you do, I love you and you are going to officially love me for telling you about this coffee. Chameleon Cold Brew Coffee is a organic, Fair Trade Arabica coffee that offers an amazing coffee with 3x the caffeine and 70% less acid. I was absolutely blown away when I tried it. Straight up. I just mixed mine with ice cubes and coconut milk and how a hay day. It’s so smooth, no bitterness, and has an incredible taste to it. I will be cooking it next week for sure!! But the coolest part of it all is that for the next 2 weeks (until February 26th), if you use the promo code PaleOMG, you will receive 25% off!!! So cool! So check out their website and get yourself an orderof their cold brew coffee! You are going to love it! Don’t forget to use the promo code and save yourself some dough


And, of course, I’m still OBSESSED with these little guys. I want one. Not really.

I just peed a lil in excitement.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Whoa that coffee looks amazing!

    Prunes are the fruits that make you poo- but dates…I think they might do it too…

    (hey- a poem about poo- :D)
    Have a great weekend!

  2. Hi Juli! So excited about the coffee!
    I’ve been behind on things and you have been a busy girl with recipes. I have a lot of catching up to do. 🙂
    By the way, I got my PaleOMG t-shirt (love it) and sported it during one of my WODS. You might have some new readers.
    Have a good weekend!

    1. Hey Heather!! I’ve missed you, but I’ve been super busy so I’ll have to update myself on your blog too!! Thanks so much for sporting my shirt!!!! You are freaking awesome!! I have black tanks coming soon too so you won’t dirty up your shirt as much when you’re getting after burpees!!

  3. Oh Juli,
    Medjool dates are-the-sh*t arn’t they! I LOVE the way they literally melt in your mouth…obviously while incased in a mound of almond butter…c’mon now…that’s just how we roll!

    1. I one-up’d Zanna on this. Walnut Coconut butter-almond butter stuffed dates. C’mon Zanna…tell Juli how good they were…

      Juli. Do it. You won’t regret it. You’ll thank me.

  4. I was gonna get some of the coffee, but dangg, $14 shipping? That’s almost as much as the coffee! Can’t afford that, lol I’ve never seen Justin’s Vanilla before!! Not even online! Dying to try it. There’s a stuffed date recipe in Make It Paleo that looks deeelish.

  5. Im a sucker and sprung for the coffee. I saved $5 using your promo code. I figure if it sucks I’ll just blame you and re-gift it.

  6. Hi Juli, I love your blog! I’m new to Paleo, and your recipes and general kick-@ss attitude have really helped me make the transition, thanks!! PS, Mobility WOD rules! KStar has saved me so much money in PT!!

  7. Well you’ve done it again. I purchased the coconut concentrate almost immediately after reading your post. (Not entirely certain if that was because of how you ranted and raved about it or if I’m about to realize my own dark Striptease fantasy) <— that's creepy. Anyways, got three bottles of the coffee on the way. Can't wait. It's like you have your hand in my pocket and you are just spending all of my money for me. I'd be mad if it didn't always work out so well.

  8. Juli,

    All I gotta say is you have the most legit style/taste whatever you wanna call it. Thought that only applied to food to you. But now that i see your music addictions go ahead and throw taste in music on the list. Here’s a jam I havent been able to get enough of recently…. (its Eric Prydz “Digitalism” if the link doesn’t work). And if you don’t already, check out “Radio 1 Essential Mix” usually 2hrs of gold.

    Keep doin what you do. This blog is one of the best on the web, especially for us slightly younger paleo studs/studettes.


    1. We can officially be friends now Matt. I’m excited about it. And thank you very very much for the amazing compliment, you have no idea how much that means to me?

  9. I used to be a compulsive gum chewer. And I wasn’t satisfied unless I Had 8-9 pieces in my mouth at once. Talk about LOUD chewing!!!! But this is just interesting and kinda weird.. obviously those flavored varieties have yellow #5 and all other stuff thats not “paleo” … whatever we know that but thats not the point of this. But because i don’t ingest this stuff unless I’m chewing gum, I swear every time I buy a pack of fruity flavored gum and chew it all within a short period of time, ( A day who am i kidding?) i find my skin breaks out immediately. Paleo keeps it clear, except with gum. Does that happen to u or am I freak? So now I avoid fruity gum.

    I think if we lived in the same city, we’d be best friends. Just saying. I make a fool out of myself on the dance floor ( or just at my box dancing… alone) all the time. To calvin him!

    Wanna know what’s amazing? Stuff sausage in that date, wrap in bacon. Bake it. BACON CANDY. It’s a sticky, salty, sweet delicious mess.

    1. That’s super interesting Melissa!! Thanks for the info! Do you put the sausage raw in the date? I’m very interested in this and being best friends with you so we can eat sticky bacon candy daily. please move here. now.

  10. Great blog! I love the recipes and I usually laugh out loud every time I venture over to your page- kudos for saying what’s on your mind… even if you do mention prunes and pooping in your starting paragraph. Whatev, that’s life.
    Annnndddd… here is one of my favorite “Look At Me Now” covers:–l4

    Good work, JB! 🙂

  11. Although I stand apart from your suggestion that you are an asshole, I will suggest that any gum chewing will make you prematurely hungry…why? Because it activates the production of digestive enzymes in your mouth, which travel down to your stomach and trigger your brain that food is on the way…which of course it’s not…so, voila…you’re hungry.

  12. I guess im what you’d call coffee mental, so thanks for the insight into coffee i cant get here in sydney

    Cruel & heartless you are…..

    I’ll console myself in the tasty deliciousness of my local cafe white horse, seriously the best coffee in sydney…who knows perhaps the world!

  13. What, the fuck. Send me some of that Vanilla Butter immediately! <—I just spelled that word right for the first time in my life, notice I typed 'that word' instead of the actual word in fear of misspelling.

  14. Hi Juli. Happy Friday! I tried the chameleon coffee with coconut milk but I totally eyeballed how much of each I used and it didn’t taste that great.

    How much of the chameleon coffee and coconut milk do you use for 1 serving? Do you use equal parts? Also, which coconut milk do you use?

    Thank you!

    1. Did you drink it cold of hot? I’ll usually drink 8-10 ounces cold with ice and put it about 2 tbsp coconut milk from the can. I usually use Thai Kitchen canned coconut milk!

  15. How in the wide wide world of sports did I miss this gem of a post!!! It is full of the best things in life! Poop,dates,coffee and music!! Oh and we can’t forget puppies!!!

    Anyway I have to agree stuffing dates is definietly one of the best things after and awesome bathroom break, just sayin. Also I just found justin’s almond butter and it is amazing!!!

    Sparking Italian Mineral water = Sex in the champagne room!

    I haven’t tried the chameleon cold brew yet, I assume your code is no longer valid? But I brewed some up in my french press this morning and it was amazing!

  16. I’m pretty new to your blog (which I freaking love btw) and I had two suggestions for you.

    1.) Stuff dates with kerrygold butter or raw butter some salt…it’s really damn good.

    2.) If you’re still having problems with acne and scarring, try using therapeutic grade lavender oil on your blemishes and scars. for me, it totally makes the scars heal faster and keeps the zits from getting worse. i don’t know if you’ve tried this before but I just thought I’d recommend it!

    p.s. this is where I get my essential oils from, you can even use these oils in your cooking which brings me to suggestion 3.) you should totally try using essential oils in your cooking (they have to be therapeutic grade)…it’s so yummy and fun cuz you can add basil essential oil to a salad dressing or lavender or peppermint or orange oil to a chocolate truffle recipe..okay getting off track, but seriously these are so awesome/life changing 🙂
