TGIF PEOPLE! I am SO excited it's #foodiefriday!
Many of us are not traveling and celebrating Thanksgiving with our families this year. The pandemic has upended so many of our family traditions.
Even though many of us are staying home, we can still eat, drink and be merry this Thanksgiving!
To help you eat well, I'm sharing an ENTIRE Thanksgiving menu from the smart folks at Renaissance Periodization. Click on the image below for these recipes (complete with Macros!)
Slow Cooker Rosemary Fennel Turkey Breast
Sweet Potato Casserole topped with Brown Sugar Pecans
Warm Brussels Sprouts & Kale Salad
Double Crust Apple Crisp
Doesn't that all sounds amazing?
Remember, we have formed a team for the virtual Huffing for Stuffing this year. We also got permission from the HFS race coordinator to ROW our 5 or 10k. How cool is that?
You can certainly do your Huffing for Stuffing solo, or you can join our socially distanced run by meeting at the Museum of the Rockies at 10:30am Thanksgiving morning. If you want to row a 5 or 10K be sure to email Coach Leslie to reserve an erg. Be sure to sign up officially for HFS here and join our True Spirit CrossFit team
WOOHOOO! It's #foodiefriday!
This week has been one for the ages. I have heard the words, historic, record-breaking, and unprecedented in more sentences this week than in my entire lifetime.
Leading up to the election I read several books about the American revolution and early American history. I wanted to be fully grounded in how we came to be a democracy before I exercised my most-important civil duty.
It's in this spirt that I share with you today's #foodiefriday recipe for beef barley soup with roasted vegetables from tasteofhome.com.
This soup was a popular recipe in early American life. Barley grew in abundance in Colonial America, and barley soup was a common way to warm up on a cold day.
I hope this recipe warms your soul and helps you feel connected to our American history. As always, click on the image for the recipe. Enjoy!
WOOHOOO! It's Foodie Friday! This year Halloween coincides with a FULL MOON. WHOA! The veil between the worlds will be thin. Stay safe out there!

Meal prepping on the weekend is a universal theme in every successful nutrition coaching program. It was an important part of my Precision Nutrition coaching course. It's a key ingredient in nutrition coaching with 406 Barbelle. I have yet to find a nutrition coaching program that doesn't include meal prepping.
Ideally, on the weekend when you have more time you can cook your protein and prep your fruits and veggies for the week. That will make it super easy to create a plate that looks like this.
When I first started meal prepping and doing a big Sunday cook-up I followed Well Fed's Meal Plans. In fact, I purchased the Well Fed Weeknights cookbook and worked my way through all 45 recipes.
Fortunately for you, Well Fed has an outstanding blog and everything you need to start successfully meal prepping is detailed for you. There is even a step-by-step cooking plan so you can cook all your major protein dishes at once. IT'S BRILLIANT!
It's also today's #foodiefriday recipe. Click on the image below to get your Well Fed full meal prep plan for the next week. enjoy!
