Recent Favorite Resources
I haven’t don’t a link post in a while and I’ve been stockpiling some pretty baller resources. I mean ballllllleeeeerrrrrrr, fist pumpingly, kickass websites. Some you may have seen linked here before, others might be brand spankin’ new. For additional links and smaht people, check out my resources page (which may or may not be due for an update).
This website is really, really cool. I didn’t realize just how useful it was until very recently, either. The Foodee is a collaboration of recipes from across the world wide interwebs and one can make an account completely free and painlessly. Once you have an account, you can start searching through the recipes for things you like/want using the tags or search bar.
When you find meals you want to cook, you ‘add them to your cart’. Cart? YUP! It builds a shopping list for you based on the meals you chose. If that wasn’t cool enough, it breaks your list down into subcategories like produce, spices, sauces, meat, etc. How much easier could meal planning get?
These are two more recipe compilation websites. You can search by ingredients, dietary restrictions, and even specific paleo food challenges. While not all of the recipes are paleo/primal (whatever), they do tend to gravitate in that direction. Please don’t let that scare you away from them though! Unless you’re a vegetarian, you eat meat and unless you’re a blasphemous fiend who I cannot be friends with, you eat vegetables. Hence, these websites are great for you as well.
Chow Stalker is geared towards folks trying to lose weight/who don’t want to be tempted by desserts. It is completely dessert free and the recipes focus on nutrient rich fruits, vegetables, and meats. Dessert Stalker is for those with insatiable sweet tooths and most of the recipes are gluten/grain free. Many are also dairy free.
I just found this one myself. It isn’t a paleo recipe collection, though they do have that selection option, so you can stop whining about how I favor paleo recipes. You can sort your recipe options by top rated, new, most liked, vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, paleo, or search for specific terms!
New to training? A pro in the gym? I don’t care, there is a place for you at Fitocracy. Having met both creators of the website (albeit I haven’t seen one since high school), I can say they’re both pretty neat dudes with great vision. The basic gist of Fitocracy is that is another social media platform for fitness and it is not limited to those who weight train.
It allows users to connect, learn, build, and have fun all at the same time – no matter what your current fitness level is. Heck, you can even duel one another.
While this may be a take on the popular Crossfit WODs, I really like the idea behind it. Composed by Tony Gentilcore and Dan Trink, it is a workout plan for individuals to follow. They provide training for parties interested in building strength and they have a 2, 3, and 4 day schedule available.
The Greatist in general is a phenomenal website/blog and I highly recommend skimming over the bountiful resources they have over there.
