Paleo Almond Butter Pancakes

It’s been a while since I’ve posted.  To be honest, I have been having trouble being inspired in the kitchen.  Without any food worthy to share with you all, I felt like I might be diving into livejournal circa 2001 territory if I just posted about what is going on in my life.  However, I am back! And, I come bearing a recipe!  The best part is that I actually have a few in my arsenal queued up and ready to share with you all.  Yay for “Productive Kate” (she pops her head up every once in a while)!

So, Cliffs Notes version of my life since my last post:

  • I placed 4th in March Madness at Iron Tribe Nola. I set some PRs and hung-in there against the competition.  Despite not winning, I am the only lady who can claim the title of Back-to-Back March Madness Finalist.  Maybe I should get business cards made with that as my Position Title…
  • I went to the beach with friends for a volleyball tournament.  It was super fun and very humbling.  I didn’t actually compete, but I did watch some studs show that sand who’s boss.
  • I hurt my lower back and am currently receiving treatment.  I’ve already seen some progress, but it’s killing me that I can’t work out at my normal level.  I’m hoping to be ready in time for Tribal Wars in about a month.
  • I’m competing in Tribal Wars again! For those who are unfamiliar with the event, it is the event of the year for Iron Tribe athletes.  It’s a team competition with teams comprising of 4 members each.  We compete in different skill divisions in a series of workouts over the course of a few hours.
  • I’m going to Paleo f(x) next week!!  It will be a fun and educational weekend covering all things Paleo.  I’m super excited and I plan on sharing some of my new-found knowledge with all of you, so stay tuned!

On a somewhat related note, I know I talk about Iron Tribe Fitness on here a lot and some of you may have no clue what I am rambling on about.  Well, I just found out they are giving out free one week passes!  In case you are interested in trying them out, here’s the link: 1 Free Week at Iron Tribe. (Disclaimer: I do not receive any sort of referral incentive if you sign up for the pass; I just really love my gym)
