The Freshest Fish EVER
Last summer I subscribed to the local fish CSA and I LOVE it! It is the freshest fish I’ve had in my life. There is great variety. It arrives on Wednesdays at the Fatted Calf, and they send me fun recipes and articles about the fish. Since we are about to embark on another Paleo adventure, what better time to add a sustainable source of fresh protein. Anna over at the Siren Fish Co has a GREAT offer for us Wine Country CrossFitters:

This seafood is always:
– Caught along the Northern coast of California.
– Caught using sustainable fishing methods.
– Delivered to you within 48 hours of leaving the water.
