IPL World Powerlifting Meet

by GCF on 09/18/14

Hey GCF community - Two of our athletes (Natalie & Chelsea) have qualified for the IPL World Powerlifting Meet!!! They have been working very hard towards qualifying for the last 4 months, by putting in extra hours of training, and being diligent on their dietary habits. The expenses for the meet, travel, registration and hotel can add up too. If you know these awesome chicks and would like to help them out, check out their Go Fund Me Page. Any amount helps! 

Recipe of the Week!

by GCF on 09/18/14

Some might use this recipe for breakfast; others might use it for dessert. As for me I would use it for the latter. Breakfast for me consists of protein and fat. A lot of it. And them more of it. Fat, that is.  

We consider this recipe rather carbohydrate heavy. Please eat these sparingly and treat it for what is is- a dessert! Just because it is gluten-free, white flour free, chemical and preservative free and fits into the "paleo" lifestyle does not mean that you can eat this at will. 

Treat it like a treat. 

After trying this gem you can always substitute the chocolate chips for some form of fruit. Preferably blueberries. Or whatever else you think goes good with orange. Or whatever else your little heart desires. Heck you can even substitute both the orange and blueberry with anything of your choice. 

Orange Dark Chocolate Chip Scones

What You Shall Need:

2 cups almond flour

¾ teaspoon baking soda

½ cup chocolate chunks (we like Enjoy Life Chips which are dairy, gluten and chemical free.

1 tbsp orange zest (I have an obsession with zesting, actually)

1 whole egg

3 tbsp agave nectar or honey. (I prefer raw organic honey that we get at the local farmers market.)

1.      What You Shall Do:

 In  1.    In a  large bowl, combine almond flour, baking soda, chips and zest
2.      In a smaller bowl, combine egg and agave
3.       Mix wet ingredients into dry
4.       Knead dough with hands if necessary to ensure proper distribution of                  ingredients
5.       Form dough into a circle that is about ½” thick. It does't have to be a perfect circle!
6.       Cut dough like you would a pizza; into 8 slices
7.       Use a baking spatula to transfer to a baking sheet that you lined with parchment/wax paper.
8.       Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes
9.       You're done

Recipe of the Week!

by GCF on 09/09/14

Paleo Parsnip Casserole

Breakfast is often the one meal of the day where we find people need a little kick-start with some ideas. When in doubt always opt for the eggs, right? 

When it comes to the "Paleo" lifestyle, parsnips are a staple. They have lower calories than white potatoes and have way more dietary fiber than brown rice making it a perfect substitute for both. Not to mention it is very versatile; it can be boiled, mashed, fried, sauteed, baked, or slow cooked. Lastly, their nutritional value is far superior to white potatoes as  they are rich in Vitamin C, B-complex, K, E, minerals and anti-oxidants. 

What You Shall Need:

  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 cups shredded parsnips
  • 4 whole eggs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


 What You Shall Do:

1. In a bowl beat the eggs and combine with shredded parsnips
2. Pour mixture into a baking dish and bake on 325 for about 30-45 minutes or until eggs are cooked. In some instances this might take a bit longer. I have also made this recipe in a crockpot, where I place the egg and parsnip mixture in a crockpot right before bed so it is good to go upon waking. 
3. Cook bacon in a pan and place atop the mixture.

Recipe of the Week!

by GCF on 09/03/14

Move over French toast ‘cause we are about to drop something healthier on your plate!

These gems are packed with protein, iron, B vitamins, vitamin C and vitamin A for them eyes.

Breakfast used to be my favorite meal of the day but things have changed over the course of a few years. No I do not eat every first thing in the morning like I used to. And yes, I am still alive and yes I feel utterly fantastic. But that is just me. It won’t work for everyone.  My sentiments, and what I tell patients is if you are hungry then eat. If you ain’t hungry that don’t eat. It’s not that complicated. 

Oh, and who is to say you cannot heave a steak for breakfast or a piece of fish and broccoli first thing in the morning. Think outside the norm, people. 

What You Shall Need:

2 bell peppers – your choice of color

4 eggs

1 cup white mushrooms

1 cup broccoli

¼ tsp cayenne pepper

Salt and pepper, to taste

 What You Shall Do:

1.       Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

2.       Dice up your vegetables of choice.

3.       In a medium sized bowl, mix eggs, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, and vegetables.

4.       Cut peppers into equal halves.

5.       Core the peppers so that they’re clean enough to add the filling.

6.       Pour a quarter of the egg / vegetable mix into each pepper halve, adding more vegetables to the top to fill in any empty space.

7.       Place on baking sheet and cook approximately 30 minutes or until eggs are cooked to your liking.

8.       Serve and enjoy! Hot sauce is optional.
