When I was about 7 years old my dad took me to a sand pit and we picked out the perfect sand for my brand new sand box. I remember my dad measuring, sawing and grunting through the whole project. When all the pieces came together he stood back and said, “now you can dig your way to China”. Well, Dad, I am now going to finish that journey!

To prepare for my 6 day trip (1 day for travel, 2 days for the crossfit gymnastics cert and 3 days as a tourist with the hubster) I’ve been racking my
brain Pinterest for a good beef and broccoli recipe. I found it. The trick is fry the meat separately!!!
Paleo Beef n Broccoli
- 2 top sirloin steaks; sliced into strips
- 1/2 cup coconut aminos
- 2-3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1-2″ ginger; peeled and sliced into matchsticks
- 4 green onions
- 2 heads of broccoli, chopped
- coconut oil
- Place steak strips, coconut aminos, garlic, ginger and onions in a bowl and let it marinate on the counter top for an hour.
- Heat a large pan to just shy of HIGH and add coconut oil.
- Working in batches, brown the steak strips- ONLY the steak!!! Set steaks aside.
- Once the last batch of steaks is done add all the steaks, marinade and broccoli to the pan and fry ‘em up (I had some left over zucchinis so I threw that in there too).
- Top with sesame seeds cause you’re fancy like that.
During my marinating hour I made two sides:
- 2 Japanese cucumbers; sliced
- 3 T rice vinegar
- 1 T dill (fresh or dried)
Mix. Refrigerate- if you have the time.
Spicy Kale Crisps
- kale; stems removed and chopped into
- 2 T Harissa Olive Oil
- 1 T salt
Preheat oven to 350. Massage oil and salt into kale and bake for 10-15 minutes- long enough to be crispy but not burnt.
