ALOHA MEENUT FANS!
I need to find some MeeNut elves soon! No excuse for my severe lack of blogging. I’ll try my best to squeeze in some nuggets from the past few months in a few paragraphs … !
NUMERO UNO. Drum roll please … Paleo MeeNut Butter made a little cameo in the September issue of Experience Life Magazine! So stoked for the product highlight! Check out the issue and the magazine if you can! Lots of great info and resources both on the website and in print.
DOS. As many of you may know, I am an avid CrossFitter and like to torture myself through local CrossFit competitions from time to time. However I’ve been injured since the SoCal Regionals and it’s been somewhat of a downward spiral since then. I know I’m not alone in the pool of athletes who continue to train through injuries but that doesn’t justify my stubbornness and utter stupidity, because now instead of dealing with one injury, I now have two. Score! I haven’t done a proper back squat since May and I’m going crazy. I just hope I’m recovered for BattleFit West on 9/29! It will be a larger-scale event for Mee Eat Paleo and in preparation for my booth there, I will be TEMPORARILY SHUTTING DOWN PRODUCTION for regular orders the ENTIRE WEEK OF 9/23 – 9/29 so any orders received during the week prior to the event 9/15 – 9/22 will be delayed an extra week and fulfilled AFTER 9/29. I am still an army of one and it will be difficult for me to juggle regular orders on top of making product for the event simultaneously. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding! If you can’t wait that long, please feel free to order via WODshop.com or just stop by my booth at BattleFit West on the 29th!!! Lucky athletes at the BFW side cages will be walking away with some quadruple nut prizes!
TRES. At the CrossFit Games and the WOD Gear Team Series Competition this past July I was privileged to meet a plethora of CrossFit and Paleo celebrities! Check out some of the eye candy below!
One of my favorite athletes, Camille Leblanc-Bazinet! She is as beautiful in person and was sweet enough to take a pic with me!
First female repeat CrossFit Games champ Annie Thorisdottir!!!!! Elite, beautiful and humble! We were able to gift her a jar of MeeNut Butter ... which I'm sure she loved!
In the presence of Paleo greatness - The Civilized Caveman's George Bryant and The Food Lovers' Primal Palate's Hayley Mason & Bill Staley! I'm pretty sure I gained Paleo superpowers while posing for this pic! George is an incredible friend and one of the best chefs I know! And Hayley & Bill are responsible for paleo bacon chocolate chip cookies, 'nuff said! Check out their amazing blogs at http://www.civilizedcavemancooking.com and http://beta.primal-palate.com/
So stoked to meet Coach Carl Paoli of Gymnastics WOD. I owe my muscle up to this man's expertise! Great tutorial vids at http://gymnasticswod.com/
I love the Modern Gypsies, they are so cool, even minus one! Ever since I saw them win Expedition Impossible I've been itching to apply for the show myself LOL Can you imagine Mee flailing about on national TV??
None other than O.G. Firebreather, Greg Amundson! Not only did he take the time to snap this pic, he helped promote my MeeNut Butter to passersby in the process!
Amazing friends from Itsumo Ahi Jerky - Lisa, Daren, Alec, Nichole! Without their help I wouldn't have been able to deliver pre-orders of MeeNut Butter to my customers! So grateful for their support and love! Show them some love at https://www.itsumoahijerky.com/
Got to meet El Presidente of WODshop.com, Jerry Lamigo! WODshop.com is a one-stop shop for all things CrossFit & Paleo and they're cool enough to carry my MeeNut Butter!
Mee finally got to meet Lee of Paleo Treats LOL Love this lady! So sweet and encouraging! And if you haven't tried their treats, you're missing out! I wish I had some of their Cacao Now NOW!!!
My paleo-asian sista Michelle from Nom Nom Paleo and her super cute Double-Os! She and her hubby Henry run one of the best blogs out there! http://nomnompaleo.com/
Steve from PaleoKits not only provides great paleo snacks, his heart for inner-city youth has spawned one of the best movements I've seen to keep kids off the streets! Your purchase helps change lives! http://stevesoriginal.com/
Owen from OhMyBar! Super cool athlete and chef providing yummy treats for us hungry athletes! http://www.ohmybar.com/
An amazing SoCal sunset during the CrossFit Games on Friday night
2012 CrossFit Games Podium! All athletes were spectacular and it was so legit to witness Rich Froning, Jr. and Annie Thorisdottir make history as the first-time ever repeat champs!
CUATRO. Last but not least I wanted to thank all of you again for continuing to have faith in Mee Eat Paleo! I’ve only been full-time since January but I feel like I’ve already made tremendous strides and can’t wait to see where I’ll be five years from now! I owe it all to my loyal fans, amazing family & friends, and ultimately The Giver of all good things. I love and thank you all! Soli Deo Gloria!
