Paleo Chicken Alfredo


When I first saw this recipe, I thought "There is no way. I mean, Alfredo sauce is super creamy!" I was WRONG!! Granted, it's not exactly like Alfredo sauce, but it was pretty freaking good.  I found Kelp noodles at Natural Grocers (Guadalupe and 39th) but I'm sure you can get them at any Whole Foods-type store. 
Taken from The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf
Use kelp noodles but if you cannot find them where you live, use spaghetti squash as an alternative. However, there will be much less sauce with spaghetti squash.


  • 1 lb chicken breast
  • 1 12oz package of kelp noodles
  • 4 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp tarragon
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp mustard powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/8 tsp paprika


  1. Add the olive oil to a large skillet. Saute the garlic over medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Cut the chicken into 1 inch cubes, then add to the skillet and cook until all sides are brown.
  2. Rinse and chop the kelp noodles. Add them to the skillet along with the tarragon, cover and cook on low for 30 minutes. Then, pour the liquid from the skillet carefully into a small container for use in the sauce.
  3. Add the cashews, onion powder, garlic powder, mustard powder, salt, pepper, and paprika to a blender. Cover and blend into a powder. Add the reserved pan juices slowly, blending into a thick sauce. You'll have to use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the blender periodically. Add the juices until the mixture reaches the desired consistency.
  4. Add the sauce to the skillet, then mix well. Cover and continue to cook for 10 minutes longer, until the kelp noodles have become tender.

Hilly Fartleks!

Go Cassie Go!

Have you ever done Fartleks (or Indian Runs)? It's when everyone runs in a line and the last person sprints to the front of the line. Usually this is done around a track or field, but in Relentless Bootcamp we take it up a notch!

The Barton Hills Crew not only did Fartleks up a crazy steep hill, but they did it with a 6lb. MedBall! Can you say "Hardcore"??!!
At the top...whew!
