Exercises / Severe Knee Pain
« on: January 25, 2012, 05:53:15 AM »
I had severe knee pain for the past month after doing a running race that included a high bridge. It was really bad when I walked up and down stairs or after sitting for long periods. Then, I found Trigger Point Therapy for knee pain yesterday on YouTube. Today, the pain is almost gone. It's amazing. I had a knot in my quad where it attaches to the hip bone. I used a foam roller, golf ball, and thumb pressure and it was like night and day afterwards. I have been taking Animal Flex Packets and SuperCissus with no results, but my joints might be better with it. I wish I would have found out about Trigger Point Therapy a month ago. I could have saved money and pain. I love running races and I was almost to give up hope of running again.

Recipes and meal photos / Almond Chicken
« on: April 05, 2011, 07:38:14 AM »
1) Coat chicken with Mayo and seasonings.
2) Place mayo-coated chicken in a bag with almond meal and seasonings or a deep dish and press the almond meal mixture onto the chicken.
3) Place the chicken on a greased pan and bake on each side for 8-12 minutes at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for a total of 16-24 minutes. I had two pounds of chicken so I baked it for the full 24 minutes. If you have just a pound, then maybe 16 minutes.

*I placed a little bit of non-paleo shaved parmesan cheese on the chicken at the end and I dipped the chicken in non-paleo Hidden Valley Ranch dressing. I used Emeril Lagassee's SouthWest seasoning in the mayo and almond meal.

Miscellaneous / What I eat, is what I eat

Here is a good article on non-paleo people and us.

From the article: Then there is that other kind of friend. You know the one… the one that encourages you to have a slice of cake even though she knows you are eating healthy, because “you deserve it – one piece of cake, what can it hurt?” The one who isn’t as supportive of your new nutrition choices and who maybe even tells you that eating Paleo is unhealthy. This is the person you will never convince no matter how much data you give her, and who will be increasingly more negative as you dig in and stick to your plan.

Miscellaneous / First for Women Weekly Magazine
« on: March 24, 2011, 08:26:16 AM »
The Paleo WOE made the "First For Women's" weekly magazine. I picked up a copy this morning at Walgreens. It's an 8-page article and it features Eva La Rue being on it.

Recipes and meal photos / Ice Cream

Take over-ripe bananas, cut them into chunks, freeze them solid, and then put them in a food processor and add coconut milk until you get the right texture. You can add some 85% dark chocolate. It has the same texture as ice cream and tastes really good. You can add cocoa for a chocolate version.

Diet and nutrition / Kombucha

Has anyone drank Kombucha over long periods? Any problems? I just picked up two bottles of Vibranz Kombucha. I'll try them for the first time tomorrow afternoon.

Does anyone have a favorite brand?

Diet and nutrition / Coconut Oil Straight Up
« on: January 20, 2011, 10:56:27 AM »
Do you think it would cause any problems if I just took two heaping tablespoons (not the tbsp measuring kind, but the table setting kind) of solid virgin coconut oil (Vitamin Shoppe Brand) with one meal a day to make sure that I am getting plenty of fat? My calorie intake on average is 1600-2000. Or should I take more?

Diet and nutrition / Lard
« on: November 17, 2010, 04:55:12 AM »
I assume this is bad, but I wabted to make sure before I throw it away. . About a year ago I was making authentic Mexican food and I was using a big tub of Manteca Lard and Hydrogenated Lard. It's been sitting in my food pantry.

Bad for this WOE?

Diet and nutrition / Hard Cider

If you have to resort to a non-paleo beverage like Hard cider, according to the site below, Hornsby and Harpoon Ciders are not Gluten-Free.

Workout Journals / Dumbbell Workout for a Runner
« on: August 27, 2010, 11:33:09 AM »
What kind of a workout would you recommend for a runner?

I run because I like running 5K races with finish times between 21:30 - 22:30. I'm not trying to get big, but defined.

I have a dumbell set that starts at 2, 5, 8, 10, 12, 15, 20, 25 ... up to 50lbs. I have the removable extreme chinup bar with the wide lat bar connected and a bench that inclines with a leg attachment. I also have the P90X program, but get tired of it after the first of two rounds.

I run about 20-25 miles a week with a heavy duty track workout.

This morning I did 5 sets of Dumbbell bench press: 10x20, 10x25, 10x30, 10x35, and 10x40
Overhead press, I did 10x10, 10x15, 10x20, 3x25 and that was all I could handle for those two exercises. That's all I had time for this morning.

Any suggestions? Thanks.
