Dinner & Sides

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I eat a lot of canned fish. In fact, I just got an email last week from a girl who was interested in my nutrition program, but was afraid that she would have to eat sardines! (First of all, that's hilarious. Secondly, you 100% do not have to eat sardines while doing Fueled+Fit.) If you're wondering what all the fuss is about, you can read more about my love affair with canned salmon here.

Today, I'm bringing you a whole new way to eat it.

These photos are kind of the worst, but this recipe is phenom and pattypan squash are coming up hot right now...so I'm posting today. You can make them with or without goat cheese, depending on your dietary preferences...both ways are equally delicious. This is an awesome recipe to feast on the flavors of the season! (Pictured above with crispy chicken thighs from a local farm.)

5 simple summer suppers to make when you don't feel like cooking

I've been in a food rut. Most evenings, the thought of preparing a meal both exhausts and annoys me. Back when I was a vegetarian, it was so easy to throw together a last minute meal. Cook up a pot of grains, sauté up some veggies...done. Now I eat a relatively grain-free diet, with far more animal protein. (With lots of personal experimentation, I've learned I feel better this way. This may or may not be appropriate for you. A great way to figure it out is by joining my Fueled+Fit program. This is basically the format I used to dial in my current ideal diet. I say current because since I'm a human, I will continue to change, and so will my diet.)

I have access to an awesome farm stand.  Awesome because all the food is grown within miles of my house and because the produce is super cheap.  I can usually fill a large shopping bag for $10-$15.  It's the fruits - quite literally - of my neighbors' labor: they have a massive backyard garden that they share with others in an honor system style stand.  I stop here at least once a week to supplement my farmers' market sprees.

I had a great day yesterday - taught a fun yoga class in the morning, had a nice conversation with one of my students afterward, got some studio stuff done, then came home to one of my best buds awaiting me at the beach for a long overdue catch-up sesh.  An overall productive, fun and tranquil day.  And then at 5:00, without warning or reason, the rage hit.  I'm not sure where it came from or why it decided to embed itself so firmly into my psyche, but there it was plain and simple: I was AGGRO.
