I workout at CrossFit Roots 4 days a week and eat a 99% Paleo diet (I give myself one meal a week for cheating; usually date night!).
Recently I've been super hungry. In fact, I'm in the kitchen grazing constantly. So, I talked to my great friends at the 8:30 CrossFit Class.
Me: "Have any good snack ideas? I'm constantly hungry and there's NOTHING to eat!"
Friends: "You shouldn't be hungry all the time. You must need more fat in your diet.
Eat a spoon full of coconut butter before every meal and add more coconut oil and butter to your diet."
So I did, and one week later I'm 5 pound lighter and sometimes I forget to eat a meal because I'm completely satiated.

I've been doing CrossFit for about 3 years, 4 days a week.
Last week we had to run a 10K. After that run I felt like I had been hit by a truck. Back hurt, knees hurt, whole body was a wreck.
My friend told me she too, was in pain and she recommended "Golden Milk". I looked into it, emailed my Ayurvedic doc and this is my own version that I love. I drink it at night and the next day I feel 100%.
After researching more about turmeric, I've learned that it is incredibly good for you. Not only is it an anti-inflammatory it's also is great for your immune system and for your brain. Some research shows that it helps with depression too.
1 cup milk of your choice (I use raw cow's milk)
1/2 cup warm water
1 teaspoon - 2 tablespoons turmeric
1 teaspoon coconut oil or ghee
dash of black pepper
raw honey to taste
1 teaspoon ginger
dash of cinnamon
dash of cardamom
In a small sauce pan warm milk, coconut oil or ghee, honey to taste and pepper.
In a separate bowl combine turmeric and water to make a paste.
Add turmeric paste to warm milk.
Add ginger, cinnamon and cardamom to your liking.
Gently simmer on the stove to reduce to 1 cup.
Whip with Aerolatte Milk Frother before drinking.
Soooo yummy. Enjoy. Be in health.
Recently I went to the doctor with pain in my writs. He told me I have tendonitis and told me I have four options.
2. wear a brace
3. steroid injections
4. Alieve every 4 hours for 3 weeks
I chose none of the above, instead I went strait to my Ayurvedic doc and told her what what was going on. She whipped up a batch of herbs and a bottle of massage oil for inflammation. Three months later no pain.
