Kale, Quinoa, Avocados, Oh My!


Ever since David C. Owen first arrived on my doorstep a year ago, I’ve made the care and feeding of visiting pole artists and instructors my thing.

After all, I want them to love Boulder and the studio so much that they are dying to come back after they tell all their friends.

Tracee Kafer recently stayed with me and, as always, I inquired about what she likes to eat. Without even asking I knew the answer: veggies, kale, nuts, lean meat, very little dairy, no refined grains, sugar, blah, blah, blah.

I whipped this little beauty up for her dinner after teaching workshops all day. I had her at hello.

She was all, “You complete me.”

you-complete-me

Not really, but I know that she was grateful for a good meal.

Totally loves me now.

Totally loves me now.

David told me about a workshop/performance weekend where he was fed nothing but bar food. For days!

Really, it’s so not okay to feed an athlete crappy, fried foods. It’s like asking someone to perform at 100% on half the oxygen, which we already kind of do in Boulder.

Tracee wanted the recipe but confessed that breakfast is the only meal she’s really comfortable cooking. “You could crack and egg over this and it could be breakfast, right?”

Absolutely.

Here’s the video, Tracee, just for you.

After she left I got back to the business of real life, which includes cleaning many toilets.

Thank god that I have That Fucking Cat to help out.

I did my usual rounds of emptying trash cans, changing sheets, and restocking the toilet paper with a brand new roll.

I only turned my back for a second when …

Stupid cat.

  1. OK . Who shoots the movies when you do your amazing cooking show? (Clearly it’s not L, smiling in the background.) And do you have a studio quality microphone? Sound is dramatic, and captions captivating. Perchance do you have a background in film?

Really? No way.
