WORKOUT OF THE DAY

CrossFit Kids Get Creative & Healthy in the Kitchen!

By jerry1 comment

On Sunday, we hosted our first-ever CrossFit Kids Cooking Class led by fellow CrossFitter, Lanette Doran. We had a dozen children between the ages of 7-12 and learned to make three amazing new, healthy dishes. Below are the recipes.

Steamed Kale with Cashew Sauce adapted from Dr. Joel Furhman (fiber, artery cleaning power, Omega 3 and every vitamin you can think of!)

 1 head of Kale, washed

½  Cup raw cashews (Trader Joes)

½ t onion powder

Unsweetened soy or regular milk 2-3 T

Blender or Bullet

To Cook Kale:  With your hands, pull kale stems away from leaves.   Place a few kale leaves in a pile, roll together and chop.  Place chopped kale in steamer and steam until softened but still retain bright green color.  Do not cook until grey.  While kale is steaming, make sauce.

Sauce: Place cashews and onion powder into a blender and pulverize (this will make a loud noise).  Then add enough milk to make a smooth paste and blend.

 When the kale is ready, scrape it into a bowl and stir in the cashew sauce.  Ready to eat.

 Orange Energy Sweet Potatoes (cartenoids with Omega 3)

½ baked sweet potato (baked for 1 hour at 325 degrees until soft and syrupy)

1 clementine, peeled

Splash of apple juice

Pinch of cinnamon

1 T walnuts

Blender or Bullet

Scrape out sweet potato into blender.  Throw away peel. Add clementine, juice, cinnamon and walnuts.  Puree until smooth.  Ready to eat.

Easy Chipotle Shrimp Tacos

Shrimp, unthawed raw or cooked, shelled

Lime

Coconut oil

Garlic, minced

Handful of chopped onion

Small amount of canned chipotle chile in adobo sauce (found at Shoppers, Whole Foods, Safeway)

Dash of salt and pepper

Squeeze some lime juice over shrimp.  Put a little coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat.  Add a small amount of minced garlic, onion, and even smaller amount of chipotle chile, and salt and pepper.  Stir and cook 1-2 minutes until you can smell the garlic.  Add the shrimp and cook 2 minutes per side if raw or stir to coat if shrimp is precooked. Turn out onto plate.  Serve with cooked or raw kale or cabbage, corn tortilla, salsa and guacamole.

    My brother suggested I might like this website. He used to be
    entirely right. This put up actually made my day. You can not imagine simply how much time
    I had spent for this info! Thanks!
