Pumpkin Pie Superfood Pudding

by Sheena C. 

Ah January. In my opinion this is the best month to do some kind of food “reset” since it’s hard to keep up with your normal eating lifestyle during the holidays. Of course, you can do this any time of the year but it may require some extra will power and strength! It’s a new year (newrear!) and people are getting back into the groove of things. I know a handful of you are eating strict Paleo or a Whole30 right now, and you’ve got about a week left until the month is over. Keep it up!

If you haven’t really paid attention to what you’re eating since working out, perhaps you should consider researching and trying something new. This will depend on what your goals are; feeling healthy, losing weight, gaining weight. Join in the conversation(s) that happen on our Foodie Facebook page!

The recipe I’d like to share is from a book The Performance Paleo Cookbook by Stephanie Gaudreau, founder of Stupid Easy Paleo. The CrossFit Games Open season is upon us (sign up/register/do iiiiit) and I really enjoy how this book is based off of your performance in the gym. It has recipes for the more competitive type: hard training.
