MODpaleo

The most challenging part of eating clean (whether it be paleo, 28toLife, Whole30, or just simply a healthier processed food + chemical free diet) is finding enough time for the food prep.  Most of our lives demand convenience, and an efficient method for sourcing on-the-go meals, so the fact that MODpaleo provides this, with completely clean, locally sourced [amazing] meals does nothing short of completing my life.  Oh, and now they ship overnight to Virginia, which means you can order today and have a weeks worth of meals at your doorstep tomorrow [and enter the code ‘MadnessCville’ when you create your account, and get 10% off your first order.  It’s that simple].

Prepping for a Week of Clean Eating + MAD Cardio Sweats

There are few things I love more than organization, strategic planning, and food, so The Whole Damn Thing: real food, real health challenge is lighting up my little inner light as 2014 closes out.  And lets be honest, when paired with my next great love, fitness & sweats, 2015 is already welcoming me in.

Last week I had some amazing sweats, both scheduled and somewhat spontaneous, which I imagine will be the same for this week, but here’s what I’ve got planned:

Even though we’re not kicking off the lifestyle/challenge until Sunday night at The Whole Damn Potluck, I’ll be posting some prep tips, grocery lists, and starter recipes right here over the next few days. So, if you’re feeling so inclined (my liver just raised it’s hand), kick start a little early and come to the potluck as a 3 day seasoned veteran of food prep and sugar detox.

This of course happened this week for Christmas Round II with my parents, obviously since it’s my favorite meal to make and eat – Paleo Thai Chicken Stir Fry (w/almond butter sauce).

It’s been on here more times than I can count (if I don’t have it twice a month my life feels empty) so check it out and give it a whirl.  My one piece of advice for a novice — less nut-buttery, more coconut milky, and an extra grind of salt will do the trick.

For all of my Charlottesville folks hitting up the Challenge with us, make sure you also join the group/forum for recipe and tip sharing — it’s open to non-MAD folks as well, you just need to join to see the content!

That’s it for now — more to come tomorrow to help you clear everything out and re-stock with the good stuff, but for now, it’s time for this girl to catch some z’s before kicking off cardio week in MADville at 6am with all the sexy people of course.  See you there.
