Good Eats

CF Games Open...first WOD is released Tuesday.  I might complete all of the WODs on Tuesday and then again Saturday.  Hopefully this will allow me to beat (or try to beat) my own time and go in with a strategy of some sort.

Today was a rest day for CFNE, but I decided to do the CrossFit mainpage WOD.

7 Rounds:
10 Wall Ball, 20lb
20 Pull-Ups

6min 20sec

Now, on to the food!  I've been wanting to make a Paleoish Chicken Lo Mein for a long time and today was finally the day.  I looked through a bunch of recipes and settled on a mixture of them all that I'm happy with.

Spaghetti Squash (already cooked) - 4 cups

1-2lb of chicken
1-2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup onion, chooped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1/2 cup carrots, chopped
1 cup shitake mushrooms, chopped
1/2 cup green onion, chopped Cabbage or bok choy, 2 cups shredded
6-8 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup gluten free Tamari (Soy Sauce) 
1/4 cup sesame oil
2 tbsp coconut flakes or honey (optional)
2 tbsp fresh ginger, minced
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp black pepper

1) have spaghetti squash already cooked and ready to go
2) cut chicken into thin pieces (not cubes)
3) chop and mince all veggies accordingly

Heat olive oil in large skillet or wok on med-high heat.  Add onion, carrot, celery, mushroom, and garlic to pan and cook 1-2 min.  Add in chicken, paprika, black pepper, and cook until it begins to brown.  Add in soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, coconut flakes, and cabbage.  Continue to cook for another few minutes and then add the green onion.  With a few minutes left, reduce heat and add in the spaghetti squash.  Simmer over med/low heat until spaghetti squash is heated.  Serve and enjoy.  Makes 2-3 servings.

Delicious...faux mein


  1. This looks really kind of amazing and I'm probably gonna be making it, like, tomorrow. But, when you say "serving" do you mean post-workout he-man-size serving, or normal-person serving? Because that looks like a hell of a lot of food.

  2. I'm trying to remember exactly how much it made. I believe this recipe will make 6 cups or so. Of course 2 cups is a small serving for me :)

  3. I just made this. As in I'm chewing is as I type. And it is delicious. But you forgot to say how much chicken to put in. For shame, Michael Kelley.
