Team Tryptophan’s Paleo Potluck

Team Tryptophan Chowing Down

Another crazy week down!  Last Tuesday, I had the pleasure of hosting some fellow CrossFitters from CrossFit Central at the house for a Paleo potluck dinner… we’re all on the same Lean Turkey Challenge team (Team Tryptophan!), and we’ve been focused on amping up our workouts and dialing in nutrition leading up to the holiday season.  It’s been a great experience so far – met some cool new folks, trained with some awesome coaches, and I’ve even whittled the waist down just a bit over the past five weeks.  We had seven folks join in the fun on Tuesday, and everyone brought a yummy Paleo dish to share – woohoo! Here’s what we had:

  • Paleo Spaghetti (Squash!) and Meatballs — Jay
  • Cauliflower Fried “Rice” — Heather
  • Homemade Almond Crackers — Kristin (sound yummy… check out her recipe!)
  • Fresh Greens Salad w/Avocado — Jessica
  • Brussels Sprouts with Apples & Ginger — Wendy

The food was absolutely delish, and I’m totally snagging the recipes… yum!  I made a few things as well:  oven-roasted chicken legs and thighs, spicy roasted pecans with cinnamon (which, by the way, I could NOT. STOP. EATING.), roasted sweet potatoes with apples, proscuitto-wrapped figs, and flourless chocolate cake bites.  We had a great time hanging out and sharing our CrossFit/Paleo stories – looking forward to the big end-of-challenge competition on Saturday… bring it on!! Go Team Tryptophan!
