Whole Life ChallengeDay 40
I love PR days because athletes get to surprise themselves by how much better there form is, how strong they are getting and the ease with which they can now put up weight that they would not have even dreamed that they could have lifted a couple of months ago.

The Kitchen WOD: Nuts to Loin
Sorry, there was no way to resist putting those words together in the headline. There are several other puerile comments that nuts and loin. Take a few moments to get them out of your system before reading on.
The first recipe of this week’s Kitchen WOD brings you a sun-dried tomato stuffed pork tenderloin that forms the cornerstone of a meal good for a date or a party. And speaking of parties, no party would be complete without a taste of Nate’s Spiced Nuts. Get that recipe here.
Sundried Tomato Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
2 pound Pork Tenderloin
- 1 8.5 oz jar sundried tomato haves
- 1 T minced garlic
- 7 Fresh basil leaves
- Butterfly pork tenderloin.
- On one side spread the sun dried tomato and garlic.
- Lay the basil leaves on top of the tomatoes fold over the other half of the pork over and tie the pork with 3-4 pieces of string so that the stuffing stays in while cooking.
- Sear the pork on a hot BBQ for 5 minutes on each side and finish in the oven at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
