TGIFF! Man, am I glad it’s Friday. Henry’s been in Asia all this month (yes, he’s still there) and I’m one tired mother. This weekend, I’m looking forward to chilling with the Double Os and welcoming their poppa back to the States on Sunday. But until then, how about some tasty links to chew on?

In this week’s edition of Forky Friday, I’ve got an inspiring video featuring one of my favorite athletes, the Paleo dining event in Portland, tips for getting your kids on the Paleo bandwagon, lots of delicious recipes, and much more!

Wanna see what’s caught my eye around the web this week?

  • The CrossFit Open kicked off last week with over 138,000 folks competing around the globe, and I’ve been watching with keen interest. My favorite moment thus far? Watching Jenny Labaw kill 13.1 on ONE LEG. Jenny never fails to inspire me with her tenacity and fierce determination. 
  • I was happy to read Diane Sanfilippo’s 4 Super Foods That the Media Tells You Are Unhealthy ’cause I’ve got all of them in my fridge or freezer. Yay! 
  • Raise your hand if you used to be addicted to breakfast cereals. Me, too. Now go read Angelo Coppola’s illuminating post on The Sleazy Story of Cereal’s Success and pat yourself on the back for kicking that ghastly habit.
  • One night only: The Paleo Dinner at Departure in Portland. If I wasn’t working next Thursday, I’d be there in a heartbeat even though Portland is 667 miles away from mi casa. Award-winning Chef Gregory Gourdet’s food is that good.
  • If you’re like me, transitioning your kiddos to the Paleo lifestyle was anything but a cake walk (Wocka! Wocka! Wocka!). My advice: If you remain firm and persistent, it’ll happen. I promise. Need more specific guidance? Read Raising Good Food Kids: The Whole9 FAQ and Russ Crandall’s Making Your Kid A Real Food Foodie. By following their spot-on tips, your kids’ll be begging for meat and veggies in no time.

Ready to do some cooking this weekend?

  • I love when my favorite Paleo foodbloggers collide, so I was delighted to see Joshua Weissman of Slim Palate and Russ Crandall of The Domestic Man collaborate on a recipe swap. The new mods are awesome: Check out Josh’s Rogan Josh and Russ’s Chipotle Dijon Turkey Meatballs.
  • Sunday Gravy! ‘Nuff said.
  • Looking for a fun family brunch treat this weekend? Check out Paleo Parents’ Frozen Waffles, the super popular recipe that was originally only available in their cookbook, Eat Like A Dinosaur. The Double-Os LOVE them.


Now go enjoy your weekend!

About Michelle Tam

Hello! My name is Michelle Tam, and I love to eat. I think about food all the time. It borders on obsession. I’ve always loved the sights and smells of the kitchen. My mother was (and is) an excellent cook, and as a kid, I was her little shadow as she prepared supper each night. From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
