OMG, it’s time for the Weekly Roundup!

1. $6 Asparagus water? I’ll sell you some for $5.


2. This just in from The Onion – Report: Majority Of Americans Now Eating One Continuous Meal A Day

The trend is believed to have started in the American Midwest, before gradually spreading over the past decade to all regions of the country and finally becoming national orthodoxy, according to the sociologists’ 400-page, marinara-stained report.


3. If you missed the US National Championships in weightlifting last weekend you missed 15-year-old CJ Cummings setting an American record in the clean and jerk. It was a youth, junior and senior record and is an unofficial junior world record for the 69 kg (152 lbs.) weight class. He clean and jerked 175 kg, which is 385 pounds at just 15 years old! Insane! This kid is the future of American weightlifting and I can’t wait to see him progress over the next few years.


4. Did you know the national dish of England is Chicken Tikka Masala? Well, now you do and here’s a video from Paleo Nick on how to make a Paleo and Zone friendly version of the dish. Seems pretty easy and delicious.
