I had such a fun night out with my fellow Crossfit women from Crossfit Des Moines this past Friday! We all gathered with personal chef Terrie Kohl, own/intructor of Country Club Market, www.countryclubmkt.com. She shared with us a full packet of information with healthy recipes and lots of little cooking tips then we all divded into teams and made the meal with her guidance. It was incredibly fun to be in a busy kitchen with all the women talking, laughing and trying new things. When we were done we all sat for a WONDERFUL, healthy meal together. Most of the recipes were Paleo friendly, in that there was no refined sugar, processed foods, dairy or grains used. Last night I replicated the pork recipe for my family and Scott was blown away...I think he thought someone else made the meal :) Above is the meal I MADE and below is the recipe. Try it!
