 So on this lovely day I decided to wake up for an EARLY morning workout at my amazing gym Crossfit AEvitas (known as a WOD in the Crossfit world aka “Workout Of The Day”). So at 5:20am I rolled out of bed, drank a glass of water, kind of tied my shoes, and then was greeted by this lovely workout:

Deadlift (Tough Triple (3 sec pause at knee)) @195#

“Elizabeth” @12:20
Clean @95# 
Ring Dips @ 15-12-9 reps

AND JJ and I must be married too long because this also happened COMPLETELY unintentionally ( i pretty much don’t open my eyes until I get to the gym…so I blame him fully…good thing he is cute!):10425383_945902232533_5614994708293818459_n Yup that’s right we matched…whoops!

This day I had an AMAZING opportunity to meet with a fellow real foodie and nutrition genius herself, Dr. Sarah Lobisco . She is a Naturopathic Doctor in Ballston Spa, NY and she is brilliant and sweet and we got to gush about nutrition and real food over a wonderful cup of tea from The Whistling Tea Kettle in Ballston Spa, I highly recommend it there! I also recommend you check out Dr. Lobisco’s website and her facebook! She is a wealth of knowledge and was featured on Ben Greenfield’s podcast and will soon be on OUR podcast and we could NOT be more excited!!! (Happy Dance)



Homemade Butternut Squash Soup (anyone want a recipe!?…it was so good I had it twice today)
Smoked Salmon Egg Frittata



Spaghetti Squash w/ homemade creamy tomato sauce (dairy-free) and….LIVER meatballs 🙂 (Recipe to follow soon…and believe me not only is it Nutrition Genius worthy and nutrient dense…it’s DELICIOUS…JJ said so!)

Alright until next time, remember to send us photos of what is on your daily dish and feel free to leave us questions in the comments, we love sharing our food and nutrition knowledge with you 🙂
