Some days I wake up and feel like eating pie for breakfast. Anyone else ever feel that way?! Although I believe in indulging my sweet tooth now and again for breakfast, I’ve found a delicious compromise that’s only 150 calories per serving! These pumpkin pie parfaits really hit the spot! Making them a perfect substitute for a healthier holiday dessert or for breakfast when you find yourself with a real hankering for pie! 😉
It’s an annual tradition for many CrossFit boxes to perform the 12 Days of Christmas WOD on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day itself. The movements will range from box to box, but the rules typically remain the same – complete the reps the same way you sing the song.

Well, it is – until you get to about round 7…

Here’s my copycat version of Jenn Segal’s tried, tested and perfected double chocolate biscotti! If you’re not sure whether you’re a biscotti fan or not, start with these bad boys! They remind me of the double chocolate espresso biscotti from Whole Foods that I developed a mild addiction to upon discovering them a year ago.

I’m sure most of us have experienced the soreness that comes after a good workout. For some of us, getting out of bed after a heavy squat day or having performed “Karen”, can be quite a challenge. But what causes this DOMS – delayed onset muscle soreness – after a workout?
