{Eat Clean, Sweat Dirty}: Hittin’ PRs + Paleo “Pizza”

by Katelyn Block on August 29, 2012 · 17 comments

Hey everyone! Feeling great today. WODs on WODs kicking my booty and making me stronger. What I’ve found works for me: Strength work and METCON in the same day, totaling to about 1.5 hours at the Box. Not bad!

So, last night I made these little beauties:

Because my shrimp wasn’t defrosted and had to get creative. Borrowed an egg from D and whipped up what I like to call little protein-packed tuna pizza bites. Or something. Too many words.

Ingredients:

  • 1 can tuna (drained)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. pizza seasoning
  • sea salt (about 1/4 tsp, or a few cracks of the grinder)

Directions:

  1. Drain your can of tuna and empty into a small mixing bowl.
  2. Crack egg into the bowl. Add seasoning and sea salt.
  3. Break up the tuna while mixing everything together, until it sticks well.
  4. Heat up coconut oil (or any other high-heat cooking fat, read: butter, avocado oil, macadamia nut oil) on medium in a saute pan, then add about 2 tbsp.-sized portions one at a time, flattening slightly.
  5. Turn after a couple of minutes. You might have to scrape egg back onto the cake if it spreads out in your oil.
  6. Cook for another minute or so and serve with your favorite tomato sauce (and avocado if you have some).

These would be great on top of a salad, or on top of coconut flour flatbread!

True fact: I’m hungry all the time lately. I guess training HARD will do that to you. Therefore, I’m thinking of new and delicious snacks all the time. Word from the wise: Almond butter + chocolate chips + blueberries. Do it. Now.

Easy peasy. Talk about midnight snack from heaven. Now that I’m training more consistently (and for a longer period of time), I’m feeling the burn and feeling my HUNGER. Holy crap I’m eating all the time. It feels great. My muscles are getting it too, but they can handle some soreness. I’ve convinced myself that it’s all mental. The human body can push through anything. Which leads to the next thing…. VLOG TIME!

Visuals:

THAT’S how PRs are done. Hard work and serious mojo.

How have you been Sweating Dirty lately?
Any PR’s? Full bragging rights given, GET AFTER IT.

Yessss – PRs feel sooooo good. :) I haven’t hit any lately. Summer hours have kept me working out at home instead of the gym, and my runs have been short since I’m coming off an injury. Ugh. So frustrating! I neeeeeeed a PR. haha

Congrats on the PRS that is such an awesome feeling and one of the reasons I love doing strength in CrossFit! I am hungry all the time too and I swear it is the combination of Paleo and CrossFit, your body is just constantly running and burning off fuel!

Congrats on the PR’s girl! Way to go! Yesterday I learned how to push jerk and proper rowing technique at Crossfit. Today I just did some cardio at my regular gym with biking, rowing, and running.

Just a note about your recipe: butter is not a high-heat cooking oil. The whey solids will burn and not taste too pleasant. Ghee, yes, butter no!

That WOD app looks awesome! Which one is it? I have an old school book I keep at the box to record my WODS and OL PR’s. Today I PR’d for my front squat at 120! Keep it up girl! :)
