Please remember your April dues tonight.

Fer everyone that missed Monday night’s workout you’ll have to show up tonight to see the change we have made to the monthly fitness assessment.  Everyone seemed excited about it on Monday.

We are going to take after pictures as well tonight for the 60 day challenge.

Monday we did Fight Gone Bad but I think Jonathan did Fight Gone REALLY Bad because it looks like he is checking to see if he is still alive.

Click on the image to see the rest of the fun we had.

Everyone be sure to say hello to our newest victim athlete Bethany.

Pizza update.  I tried the recipe below and it was rather good.  A few points I will remember for next time are to roll the dough thinner, use more sauce, and try it with peperoni.

Homework WOD:

10 push-ups

Rest day.

Here is a recipe for a paleo pizza.  I’m going to give it a try and post how it tastes.  If anyone else wants to try let us know how you like it.

One of the more popular challenges we hear from folks about switching over to a predominately Paleo diet is, “no more pizza and beer?” But I have found a scrumptious substitute, which in my mind, is even better than regular or even gluten-free pizza!  Behold!  Primal Pizza!  This recipe from Mark’s Daily Apple is super easy and quick to make.

The crust:

2 cups almond meal (found at Trader Joe’s)
2 eggs
1 tsp olive oil
½ tsp salt

Mix all ingredients together to form the dough and roll out on a non-stick pan as thin as possible (a rolling pin is useful).  Bake crust at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until slightly browned.

While your crust is baking, this is the time to prep your toppings!  Your choices of toppings are endless!  I like to fry some bacon and then caramelize onions in the bacon grease…yum!  Defrost some pre-cooked shrimp, chop up and get out those herbs & spices!

Take out pizza crust, slather on some tomato paste/sauce sprinkle a little cheese/goat cheese, bacon, onions, shrimp, Italian seasonings and red pepper flakes (optional) and put back in the oven for another 15 minutes.

Slice up, pair it with a nice green salad and I like to drizzle it all with a little balsamic vinaigrette, a Gluten-Free Beer and voila!  Pizza and Beer on a Friday night!
