A few years ago, I was your typical office-worker: stressed out, uneven energy, overweight, and inconsistent complexion. Now I'm just your typical 28-year old urban hunter-gatherer on a quest to be healthy, and having a few adventures along the way. See my full bio.
Paleo Thanksgiving, venison liver, kick-ass graffiti at New Species CrossFit
Last week I joined New Species CrossFit for a Paleo Thanksgiving, and then I gave a talk. Total blast. What other type of gym gets together on a Saturday afternoon for a Thanksgiving potluck?
I brought venison liver and onions from the deer that I shot the prior week. I cooked the onions in grass-fed butter, cut the liver into fairly small strips, cooked quickly on medium-high heat (90 seconds or so on each side). Added more butter to the finished dish.
Others made bacon-wrapped dates, seafood gumbo, salad, a big ole' turkey, deviled eggs, those sausages with half an egg in the middle (Scottish something?), and a bunch of other goodies.
Check out the awesome graffiti in their gym.
Thanks to everyone there, awesome crowd.
