Speaking of twerking... turns out olympic lifters (all men in this video!) really work it out! The music truly makes it: One minute of entertainment for your day.

Paleo Meal of the Day

I can vouch for this... I've made it myself. Substitute almond flour for traditional flour, and agave syrup for the processed honey. DELICIOUS! Double Crunch Honey Garlic Pork Chops

A few of you wondered what protein bars I love, that Tia and Alex tried as well. I discovered them at a CrossFit competition, the OC Throwdown a couple of weeks ago. The brand is Quest Bars, and the flavors that I like are Strawberry Cheesecake, Coconut Cashew, and Cinnamon Roll. I haven't tried the others so give them a whirl.
