Mission Main Street Grants

First of all, pretty please take a minute to vote for Mee Eat Paleo here: https://www.missionmainstreetgrants.com/business/detail/41278 to be eligible for a grant through Chase Bank. It would allow me to build a production facility, hire employees, and decrease lead time on orders. You can only vote once via Facebook and I need 250 votes by Nov 15 to move onto panel deliberation before they award 12 businesses with a grant.  So please VOTE and SHARE! Mahalo in advance!!!

I had such a great time traveling to NorCal this past weekend! Shout out to Catalyst Athletics, NorCal CrossFit & CrossFit Santa Cruz Central for letting me stop by and say hello!

Additionally, supplies are limited because local growers are low on crop and I am waiting on new crop …

10 MINUTE MEENUT BUTTER COOKIES

805tomandsandy

First off, I want to thank all of you that were such pillars of encouragement for me this week! I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind words and advice. It was a complete win/win as I was totally encouraged and someone scored some free MeeNut Butter in the process :) ! Muchas shakas to you all!

I’ve got some rad news – I am going to be on the radio tomorrow morning! :) Tune in to Everybody’s Hungry segment on Tom and Sandy’s 805 on News Talk 1590 KVTA at 7:30 am for your chance to win a couple jars of Paleo MeeNut Butter! Yay, the giving continues!

My great friend Linda at CrossFit RepScheme gave me this recipe eons ago and I am just posting this now as I’m baking for the show. Seriously the world’s easiest MeeNut Butter cookie recipe. Takes about 10 minutes, start to finish ;) . I modified some stuff but they turned out ok, whew! Thanks Linda for sharing!

RECIPE: WORLD’S EASIEST 10 MINUTE MEENUT BUTTER COOKIES
From Linda @ CrossFit RepScheme

Prep Time: approx 2 min
Bake Time: approx 8-9 min

Preheat oven 350 degrees F. In a bowl, slightly beat 1 large organic egg. Add 1 cup MeeNut Butter, approx 1/4 cup organic raw honey (I used about 2-3 tbsp and it was great), 1 tsp pure vanilla extract. Mix all ingredients until well combined. Spoon 1 tbsp of mixture about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet and flatten mounds with the tines of a fork. Sprinkle with a little bit of coarse sea salt and bake for 8-9 mins.

I hope Tom and Sandy enjoy these paleo treats tomorrow and I hope you do too! :)

EBHAlso take a moment to check out Everybody’s Hungry, a food-focused educational and fundraising group in Ventura County that benefits our local food banks. Learn more about them and show them some Facebook love here. :)

 

2013 cfg wodshopAlso a reminder that there will be MeeNut Butter available for sale at WODshop.com‘s booth at the Reebok CrossFit Games starting Fri 7/26 – Sun 7/28 at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA. Come stock up and say hi! :)

AMERICAN HEROES

Aloha everyone! As we observe Memorial Day, Iet’s take a moment to thank our true American heroes. It’s the great men and women who serve and protect our country that allow us by God’s grace to wake up each morning, work, play, laugh, cry, enjoy time with family and friends.

I’d like to highlight two men in particular, Curtis and Mark, who I never would have gotten to know if it weren’t for Mee Eat Paleo. :) They are currently serving us out on the field and it gives me such joy share a little bit about them with all of you!

Name: Curtis
Where are you from?: Charlotte, NC
Which branch do you serve and what do you do?: I served in the US Marine Corps. Now I provide Personal Security in Afghanistan.
How long have you served and how did you decide you wanted to join the military?: I served in the Marine Corps for 5 yrs. It is a family tradition to serve in the Military.
What is your favorite part of what you do?: Best part of what I do is working around like minded people.
If you could wish for one thing in a care package right now what would it be? Don’t think; first thing that pops into your head!:   HAHA! You obviously know men too well.. For a care package I love MeeNut Butter and Steve’s Paleo Kits.
As we observe Memorial Day, is there someone in particular you’d like to honor by remembering them and their incredible service to our country?: I served with a great Marine and man named Cpl. John Stalvey. He was killed in Iraq Oct 3rd 2005.

 

Name: Mark
Where are you from?: Henderson, TN
Which branch do you serve and what do you do?: US Marine Corps for over 9 years (multiple combat tours in multiple wars) and now a DoD contractor still protecting active duty military and DoD Civilians.
How long have you served and how did you decide you wanted to join the military?: Over 9 years in the Marines and 7 years doing the same job as a contractor. Ever since I was a little boy I’d always wanted to join the Marines, to give of myself so that others may be safe.
What is your favorite part of what you do?: Being able to wake up every morning knowing I’ve made a difference.
If you could wish for one thing in a care package right now what would it be? Don’t think; first thing that pops into your head!: CHOCOLATE!!!!
As we observe Memorial Day, is there someone in particular you’d like to honor by remembering them and their incredible service to our country?: I’d like to honor the numerous friends (60+) that made the ultimate sacrifice by giving their life so that the rest of us can sleep peacefully in our beds at night. Their families still live with that loss of a loved every day. They continue to suffer in a way that, hopefully, the majority of us will never know.
Anything else you’d like to share with us?: Tell the people you love that you love them every opportunity that you get, you never know when it will be the last time. Honor God in everything you do, without God we have nothing, no matter what material possessions you may have.

 

Thanks again Curtis and Mark, and all our American heroes, for your service. I pray God’s grace and protection over you.

 

Thank you to those heroes who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. Thank you to their families who continue to live strong and live proud.

 

For you CrossFitters out there doing “Murph” today, take a moment to remember Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy, his act of valor, and the sacrifice he made to protect his men and serve our country. Thank you.

BIG NEWS!!! Mee Eat Paleo may have found a new home to call my own in Port Hueneme!! The process has begun to draw up plans for my own kitchen!
