I’ve been reading quite a few books helping me in my quest to find a perfect Eating Green model. So far, I’m finding that a little more difficult than I anticipated.

30 Days of ZooFit: Day 17- Making the Most of What You Got

30 Days of ZooFit: Day 13- Save Room for Pie

Today was a lesson in how to practice sustainability and healthy eating while still enjoying your treats. It was a special occasion for my CrossFit gym. The old owners are moving to New Orleans and wanted to have a going away party. We all wanted our new lords and masters to feel welcome with pomp and circumstance.

100 Ways of EarthFit- Day 94: What If We Poached Eggs Instead of Rhinos?

100 Ways of EarthFit- Day 86: Tales From the Taproom

Within 24 hours, I have visited the Beer Bar in Bayview Corner called the Taproom twice already and have had a wonderful experience both times.  However, both times had nothing to do with the food or drinks consumed.  It was the atmosphere and feelings afterward that made the Taproom so memorable.   Continue reading 100 Ways of EarthFit- Day 86: Tales From the Taproom
