Pan Seared Cod




I shared how Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson eats 821 pounds of cod each year in my Paleo Cod Ceviche post two weeks ago. I know you were intrigued and want to up your cod intake, so I came up with today’s recipe.

This is the start to a series called “Massie Meal Prep”. In this series, I will teach you how to knock out Paleo meal prep in a timely and cost-effective fashion. We shot several new “Massie Meal Prep” videos last week, all of which feature either Wes Piatt or Kelley Jackson.

Okay. I’m keeping this one short. Yesterday we confirmed that we’ll be bringing the Ice Age Meals booth to all six CrossFit Games Regionals, so there’s some planning to do! That’s right, Albany, San Antonio, San Diego, Nashville, Atlanta and Portland. Oh yeah, and Madison too! I hope to see you all at one of these events!

Have a great Tako Tuesday and be sure to “Keep It Paleo!”

Your Pal,
