This Saturday from 1-4 pm we are having our Second Annual Run for the Cure BBQ, in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure. We are asking everyone to bring a side dish for the BBQ (we will have lots of burgers and hotdogs), which shouldn’t be an issue after the spread at the last BBQ for Shawn’s 100 pound loss celebration. The thing I was most impressed with at the last BBQ was that, even though not one of the coaches at CFI ever said it had to be a Paleo/primal side dish, everything that was brought was Paleo and – real food!!!
There were tons of salads, meatballs, sweet potato casseroles, fruit plates, and even grain and dairy free deserts. If you haven’t bought into the whole Paleo thing yet, this weekend try challenging yourself and bring something that doesn’t have grains or refined foods in it. We will still accept any type of side dish you will bring (trust me, non-Paleo deserts never seem to end up in the garbage after these events!), but it’s a great excuse to try a new recipe and share it with fellow food nuts. This will only increase the competition for the informal paleo bake-off going on in the gym lately ;)
There are tons of cookbooks out there, plus websites like www.thefoodee.com and www.chowstalker.com make it easy – type in what you would like to bring and it will find a Paleo version of it. I will be trying every dish and announce my favorite next week on the blog. Nate’s sweet potato sushi took it last time!
See you Saturday for some great eats and workouts! I’ll make sure Posk (aka Sarah Pain) brings some of her infamous bacon chocolate chip cookies.
Also – be sure to register for the Run with the Indestri Team or on your own – we want to see every CFI member participate if possible!
