Sarah’s Somethin’ Somethin’ – Camping Edition

January 18, 2017

I think the key to eating healthy is to not get bored and to allow yourself to indulge in moderation.  With that said, I have 2 gems for you.  The first is a sauce that was started by Ms. Gina amidst one of our nutrition challenges.  The sauce is actually a roasted veggie medley- which is delicious on its own- but you can also blend it to your desired consistency and make bomb sauce to dollop on top of just about anything!
   With a camping trip approaching, I had planned to do flatbread pizzas for night one.  A flatbread pizza made for a 5 year old in our house is composed of flatbread, sauce, cheese and pineapple… zero green veggies…and I was determined to change that.  I chopped into bite size pieces: 1 large zucchini, 1 large purple onion, 2 large red bell peppers and spread them out on 2 cookies sheets that were lined with aluminum foil.  I added 2 baskets of grape tomatoes, 6 cloves of garlic and tossed all the veggies with a generous amount of olive oil.  Popped the trays into the oven at 450* for 25/40 minutes (the time may vary depending on what degree of charred flavor you may like) and then dumped the roasted veggies into a food processor.  I added 1 can of diced tomatoes, 1/2 can of tomato paste, 1/2 tbsp of basil, dash of sea salt, 1/2 cup of diced kale and blended until it reached the desired pizza sauce consistency.  I packed it up, made the pizzas once we got there and no one complained about eating their veggies; in fact, they were grateful!
  Leaving the idea of healthy FOOD aside but keeping in mind a healthy lifestyle of occasional indulgences… gem 2.  The next time you make s’mores, ditch the boring chocolate Hershey’s bar for a Reese’s Peanut butter cup, or get real adventurous and use your favorite candy bar- but a fun size one!  It’s totally worth it and it will be so rich- one will do! Enjoy!

Saturday will be a fundraiser (taking donations at the door) “Gaza” that CrossFit Sonora is putting on. Regular 9am class, but it might take a little longer. As always, we can scale for specific time if you need to be out the door.

At 10:30am (approximately) we will hold a 1 hour skills clinic. We will be spending time with different coaches going over rowing, muscle ups and handstand pushups. Each segment will be 20 minutes. If you are thinking… gosh I am nowhere near a muscle up/ pull-up we will have some gems of knowledge to get you there… eventually.
