On Thursday evening I’ll be on the road headed to New York for the MRDA (Men’s Roller Derby Association) Championships! The St. Louis GateKeepers are ranked #1 going into the tournament (and we hope to come out #1 too!).
If you’re interested in the tournament, check out the schedule here. The GateKeepers play at 2pm and 6:30pm CT and it will be broadcast LIVE on Derby News Network. So check out the “live coverage” tab if you want to watch.
During our road trip, we’ll be taking lots of footage for you! Preparing food for the trip and eating along the way. It’ll be my first stab at editing together a lot of video, so wish me luck!
I already found a couple grass-fed beef burger joints in Philadelphia and New York, but if you have any suggestions, leave them in the comments. Here’s our route:

I’m really excited to finally try Elevation Burger and Bare Burger!
Join me on Facebook for more frequent updates of our road trip. I’ll also be updating my food photo blog with delicious eats.
I am so excited! Heather Armstrong, from Dooce.com, made the switch to Paleo. I love her! Dooce.com is very popular and her humorous writing style makes complicated content easier to digest. That means lot of new people will be exposed to Paleo…. yay! Here’s a snippet from this post:
The results? Unreal. I’ve lost seven pounds, and I’m starting to see my muscles taking shape. I can already see an incredible amount of definition in my legs and shoulders. I’m never bloated. I have an enormous amount of energy. And, the best part? I’m never hungry. That doesn’t mean I don’t eat anything. I eat A LOT. But I’m never panicking because I’m so hungry that I might eat my own arm.
My favorite part of that quote is when she talks about hunger. Before going primal (or when I sometimes fall off the band wagon), if I skipped a meal I would become ravenous a few hours later. Which would usually lead to another bad decision. When I eat lots of meat (mostly grass-fed), veggies, and some nuts, I can go half a day without eating and not feel hungry or sick.
Dooce got so many comments that she had to follow-up with another blog post about her new nutrition guidelines.
My poop is totally better than your poop.
