All posts by CrossFit Del Campo

As a 1995 Graduate of Del Campo High School I found my calling in the outdoors. I moved to Weed California to attend College of the Siskiyous and then onto Southern Oregon University in Ashland Oregon. I received a double Bachelors of Science in Health Promotion and Fitness Management and a Masters in the Art of Teaching. All the way through my college and well after I held a position as a River Guide and Fishing guide throughout the West coast as well as Canada, Mexico, South America, and Africa. I also worked closely with Clear H2o Films to explore many, until recently un navigated water ways. The experiences that I took from these expeditions brought on the thought of training and fitness as I never saw them before. It taught me that you never know what life is going to throw at you. From wading in swift moving currents in search of the ultimate fishing experience or swimming and paddling in the middle of an uncharted jungle, I learned that fitness is essential to the life that I lead. Whether I am out exploring or just trying to heard my young children, Life is a demanding sport. Upon returning to Del Campo High School to pursue my teaching career I found CrossFit. Crossfit has changed the way I view fitness and will continue the way I train and train students alike. Crossfit will be a part of my life forever and is now the sole belief in what I view as essential to our youth.

Paleo Pancakes

 

New Wagon Wheels Pancakes

Ingredients:
2 sweet potatoes (yields about 4 cups)
4 whole eggs
1 cup coconut milk
2 scoops of Vanilla Whey Protein
4 tablespoons butter, melted
3 tablespoons almond butter
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions:
Peel and cut the potatoes into small pieces. Boil them until you can easily stick a knife in them. Put the potatoes in the blender with the eggs, whey protein, melted butter, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, baking powder, almond butter. Start adding the coconut milk to reduce the consistency and blending it.

 

Heat the griddle, slick it with butter and cook till brown on either side. Remember these are more delicate than the pancakes my mom made. Too hot a griddle and they will burn and not cook through the middle. I would say try them on a lower head setting since, I messed up the first few batches on Sunday and decided I need reinforcements. So, I contacted Paleo Comfort Food rockstars for their help and they delivered.
