E.M. Burton prepares an athlete’s meaty dream dinner, then shows how to put it into the Zone.
“We’re all just one meal away,” someone said to me early in my training. I found the idea quite heartening. No matter what you ate yesterday, you’re only one meal away from having balanced blood-sugar levels.
The idea that each and every meal could be so important struck me. I wondered if we thought that way more often, wouldn’t we put in more effort to make each meal special? This was all more of a daydream, really, and might have stayed that way if I hadn’t started making videos about meals.
Each episode in the Kitchen Disaster Film series is based on taking someone’s absolute favorite meal and—if necessary, and with slight modifications—bringing it in line with CrossFit nutritional guidelines for athletic performance.
And yet, while several of the videos have appeared on CrossFit.com and in the CrossFit Journal, only one of the published videos has retained that special-meal characteristic of the series’ original intent.
