I’m becoming obsessed with HGTV.

So it’s weird being back in a normal globo gym. I’ve been comfortable with my Crossfit gym for 3 years now. I’ve met some of my best friends in those gyms I’ve worked and worked out in. But I was never really hit on at any of those gyms. Probably because I was screaming at those guys about pushing their knees out during their squats or maybe because I just don’t ooze sex appeal. Either way, my Crossfit gyms haven’t been filled with creeps. Well, I’m experiencing the creepy side again. During spin class. The last thing I want to do is speak during spin class, let alone talk to some large male who screams creep with shorts that are similar to boxers. Loose boxers. No one should spin in those. Globo gyms are weird.

Instagram is funny. And intense. Most food pictures I post, people have something to say about them. Especially since I call myself paleo, but I don’t abide by paleo “standards”. Since I make desserts, or because I eat corn sometimes, or since I drink alcohol, or because I use a microwave. I just like to live life on the edge. I really don’t mind that people sometimes hate me for what I eat, especially because it’s very interesting to see how many different opinions there are out there, but geeeeeeez do people have opinions. Like, really intense opinions. Then people fight each other about a picture I posted. And all hell breaks loose. Not really. But people, stop getting angered by my food. It’s delicious. No wait, get mad. It’s kind of fun.

Guess what else is fun? I head to California today. Yep, another trip. Thankfully I had a little over a week to recover from my trip to D.C., so now I’m heading to the west coast instead. Which is honestly one of my favorite places to visit. I thought about living in California for a long time, but Colorado is too close to my heart. So instead, I’ll be heading out there regularly to work on a project. It’s exciting. I’ll tell you about it later, though. Pinky swear promise.

    I was so excited when I was looking for a Paleo zucchini recipe and found this one and what a plus to have all the ingredients on hand. However, when I went to fry them they all stuck to the pan so we had a scoop of zucchini mush for lunch. I have never had a problem before using this ceramic frying pan. The very next day I tried them again using flour (Yes, I know that flour isn’t Paleo but I wanted to see if there was a difference). The zucchini pancakes were fantastic. No sticking to the fry pan. Now I wonder if it is the almond flour that caused the sticking? Any thoughts would be appreciated. I purchased 5 lbs of almond flour and 5 lbs of coconut flour online because I couldn’t get it locally. Who knew the bag would be as large as a 25-pounder? And wouldn’t you know that a few weeks after my order arrived Trader Joe’s started carrying it!!
    The pancakes tasted great both days but
    unfortunately the first batch didn’t look good at all.
    Love your recipes and can’t wait to try more from your 2 cookbooks I recently purchased.

    There was so much liquid after using food processor for veggies, they fell apart instantly on pan. Recommendations?
