Are you getting bored or sweet potatoes with cinnamon? Try this Taco Stuffed Sweet Potato recipe!

Cooking spray
4 small sweet potatoes
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 carrot, peeled and chopped
1 lb. lean ground turkey
2 tsp. taco seasoning
1/2 c. cherry tomatoes, halved

Preheat oven to 400º and grease a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Prick sweet potatoes with a fork and bake until tender, 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool, then split down the middle from end to end and scoop out a little to create a “bowl” for ingredients.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil. Add onion and carrots and cook until tender and golden, 10 minutes.

Step 3
Add ground turkey and taco seasoning and cook until golden and no longer pink, 6 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and cook 3 minutes more.

Step 4
Fill each sweet potato boat with cooked turkey mixture and top with black beans and corn.

When ready to eat, top with avocado, sour cream, and hot sauce, if desired.

Nutrition of the Week:
Should I take baking soda/beet juice/beta alanine/glutamine, etc?

Often times, clients want to know the best way the MAXIMIZE their nutrition. They want to take advantage of every powder/vitamin/supplement on the market in order to be the best they can be. I am guilty of this for sure!! The truth that is less exciting to hear is that dialing in the basics is still the best way to get the most out of your fuel. The basics are sleep, lowering your stress, staying hydrated, focusing on whole foods, and eating enough protein. If you can truly master these basics, you really won’t need to buy any of these magic powders to give you an edge. My advice is to get those basics in line, and then if you want to try adding in one of these things-pick one, test it, and record your results. That way, you can see if what you are trying really works for you. Have a great week!

Box Brief:
Congrats to Marie for being the March Member of the Month at Apollo! Scroll down to learn more about Marie.

Congratulations on being the March Member of the Month! So often we find ourselves coming to the same class and seeing the same people. You’re an awesome person and we can’t wait to highlight you to the community as a whole. Let’s kick off the questions!

How long have you been doing CrossFit? What keeps you coming back for more?
I have been doing CrossFit for about 6 years total but just came back almost a year ago from a 5 year break. Some of the reasons I keep coming back are the benefits of challenging myself mentally and physically, I love to see the gains, and working out with a group is definitely more fun than when alone which I did on my 5 year hiatus.

We all remember what it was like to be new to CrossFit. What advice would you give to someone new to this training style?
Sometimes I still feel like I am new to CrossFit since I took such a long break and I would say that the advice I give myself and would give others is to focus on technique. It’s easy to get caught up on what weight you THINK you can pick up and put down but if you’re not doing it right, you’re cheating yourself from real gains. And listen to your body!

For those who may not know, you had a significant neck injury last year. What happened? And how has exercise helped the recovery process?
I was only one month back into CrossFit and finally getting into my groove when I was rear ended by a 2.5 ton dually truck. I suffered from herniated discs in my C6 and C7 along with major inflammation throughout my back. After the accident, I was out of the gym for over a month, it was painful, stressful, and very defeating. When I came back, there was so much I couldn’t do so we focused on the things I could. A lot of my movements were lighter but strict, slow, and controlled. Taking that route really helped me stay on track with recovery. I started moving better, feeling better, and actually getting stronger. I still have days where my neck bothers me but there is no way I would be where I am at now without the exercise and support from Apollo so thank you!

What is one thing most people at the gym wouldn’t know about you?
Geez… there’s a lot but let’s see, let me think of something not health/exercise related… I love to decorate, I love thrifting, antiquing, creating scenes throughout the home for everyday, the seasons, holidays. I enjoy helping my friends create spaces too!

If you had to make your perfect CrossFit workout, what would it be? Choose your answer carefully Haha.
I should probably try this before putting it out there:
5 – 10 – 15 Deadlift
15 – 10 – 5 Front Squat
Rest 2 mins then Max Goblet Squat (Heavy) in 60 secs

This is one of our favorite questions to ask. If you could sit down with any person in the world past or present, who would it be and why?
This one I thought about a lot, I kept wondering if my answer would change, maybe to be more interesting, lol, but I kept getting the same answer. It’s my mom, I lost her in 2017 and I would give anything to have just one more conversation with her.

Recipe of the Week:
It’s time for a breakfast recipe!! Try out this super simple Bacon Spinach Casserole with Gruyere dish.

Cooking spray
8 slices center-cut bacon, chopped
½ cup finely diced shallots
5-ounce package baby spinach
8 ounces shredded Gruyère cheese, 2 cups total (I like Finlandia)
12 large eggs
1 cup nonfat milk
½ teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9” x 13” casserole dish with cooking spray and set aside.

In a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until cooked through. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a paper towel lined plate.

Remove and discard all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease then add the shallots.

Sauté the shallots until fragrant and they start to brown on the edges, about 2 minutes.

Add half the spinach and toss to mix with the shallots then add the rest and toss again.

Cook, stirring and tossing for about 3 minutes, until spinach is wilted. Remove the pan from heat and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs.

Set aside 1 cup of the cheese then add the remainder to the eggs. Add the milk, salt, pepper, cooked spinach mixture and bacon then mix to thoroughly combine.

Pour egg mixture into the prepared dish then sprinkle remaining cheese evenly over the top.

Bake for 35 minutes, then move the oven rack to the second slot closest to the top, switch the oven to broil and cook an additional 2-3 minutes, until browned, watching closely to make sure it doesn’t burn.

Allow to cool for 10 minutes then cut into 8 pieces and serve immediately.
