10 Minute “Save You From The Drive-Thru” Grass-Fed Beef Gallimaufry


Culinarily, a gallimaufry is a hodge-podge of ingredients. This dish displays my style of quick meals and shows how, when you have ingredients on hand, a tasty, wholesome, gallimaufry is only a few minutes away.

Things on my end have been a bit hectic. I cooked 50 meals per day for 5 days last week to test my skills at Prepared Paleo meals. Although sleep was scarce, the results were positive and I’ll now make plans to execute the program on a larger scale. What does this mean to you? It will provide a great platform for continuing to teach how to prepare food in bulk, which is fun and efficient. So, stay tuned for more on this…

I scored 163 on CrossFit Games workout 13.1 and 307 on workout 13.2. I am competing as a member of CrossFit Southbay’s team and we are currently in 28th place. The top 30 teams go to regionals, so be sure to watch our progress and cheer us on!

We shot several new videos over the past two weeks and they turned out great, so sharpen up you knives and get ready for the next chapter in Culinary Fitness.

Striving to help you be better at life.
