Robb Wolf’s Paleo Solution has a fantastic podcast directed specifically at families/kids and eating paleo at home….when you have picky, whiny kids who don’t take to “change” very well.  The best line of the whole podcast is, “Well, when you starve them long enough, they end up eating.”  Buck up little campers.  Everyday Paleo is a great resource for families eating paleo.

7 Rounds, rest 45 seconds in between rounds.

7 Deadlift 315# (scale as needed)
Run 100m

Patrick Daniel Tillman (5.6.76–4.22.04) was a professional football player who left the National Football League and enlisted in the United States Army in May 2002. He joined the Army Rangers and served multiple tours in combat before he was killed in the mountains of Afghanistan. He was a recipient of the Silver Star, the third highest honor in the military, and a Purple Heart. Pat is survived by his wife Marie. He is also remembered through the foundation named in his honor; the mission being to inspire people to make positive changes in themselves and in the world around them.

A fantastic avocado mash I’ve been making is below.  I’ve been rolling up deli turkey with it or mashing it with wild-caught salmon for a YUMMY meal.  Heck, use it as a veggie dip or something too.

A few ripe avocados
Dijon Mustard
Sea Salt
Braggs 24 Seasoning (I use it in my morning eggs too along with dill, or roast veggies with it)

Mash it all together like a mayonnaise. Tasty!
