Hi. I’m Dinah Pike Taylor. I’m Ger Sasser’s mom and I’ve been blogging healthy recipes at feedinggersasser.blogspot.com for several years. (Hundreds of recipes are still there if you want to check them out and with well over half a million page views, it’s legit!)
Ger found Crossfit and a whole foods approach to eating and convinced me to jump onboard many years ago. I’d been “Miss aerobics, Miss Jazzercise, Miss jogger, and Miss yoga” but I found that I liked Crossfit so much more. I felt stronger and younger and healthier, and I don’t mind telling you I’ll be 60 in May, 2018.
Ger is a SIX times Crossfit Regional athlete and is # 36 for the NPGL San Francisco Fire. He and Cassie run Crossfit Countdown.
I was always a healthy cook but MANY years ago Ger wanted to eat better and asked me to start looking into paleo and zone and nutrient-dense, real foods. I’ve never looked back, although we all eat more healthy carbs than we did for a while.
I remember it like it was yesterday – He ran into the kitchen and said, “Mom! I’m 30 days out from my next competition – I want to go Paleo. Figure it out!” Thanks!” I said “OK….” as he ran back out of the kitchen and I took it as a compliment that he never once thought that I wouldn’t do exactly that!
I come from a long line of great Southern cooks and I love to put my creativity and love into Feeding Ger Sasser! I love to go through my Nana’s recipe box or her antique cookbooks and then make a healthier version of her recipe favorites.
Ger and Cassie still come over at least once a week – I love when they ask me to make some their favorites! Now, we’ve added Kyler to the family, so Family Night Dinner has Jack, Jessica, and Isaac and sometimes more! I love to bring them together and feed them new recipes along with favorites.
I hope you find some favorites, too. You can reach me here or at:
