In a previous blog post we explored what personal training is and how it fits into the overall world of fitness to help you decide if this is a path, among many fitness options, you should take to help you reach your fitness goals. For those who have either decided or are heavily leaning toward personal training as their fitness path, this post is for you. In this post, we’re going to explore how you go about selecting a personal trainer.
This is delicious, healthy, full of good fat and only about 15 grams of net carbs per serving. I recommend you use the, ‘Hu Kitchen Dark Chocolate Bar’ –they are super clean, made of only cacao, coconut sugar and cocoa butter. This makes 2 servings (although it’s one serving for me). If you want to make larger amounts, you can proportionately increase the ingredients. I don’t recommend storing this ice cream in the freezer for more than one week, as the consistency will degrade.
First off, I hope everyone reading this is safe and comfortable. We’ve all been given an opportunity during this Corona virus lockdown to spend more time with family, embrace hobbies, learn a new skill or if you’re like me, grow a sick, pandemic beard. Aside from to not shaving until this whole thing blows over, I’m going for nice scenic walks, exercising regularly and cooking every meal.
I had Chipotle on Saturday and all i could taste was salt. It’s still all I can taste. So I’m cooking my own version of their burrito bowls for meal prep this week.
Right now is a really amazing time to be low carb, gluten, and grain free.

One drawback of Paleo is that you really never get to eat with your hands, and while a taco salad is delicious and good for you, it’s still a salad. I love biting into a taco and having its contents spill out all over me as much as the next guy, and thanks to Siete and companies like them, now I can!
MEAL PREP: Stuffed Cabbage My favorite cheat meal is a burrito. 90% of the time I follow the Paleo diet, and only eat meat, vegetables, eggs, nuts and seeds. I don’t eat grain, beans, or dairy, and a burrito is all of those things wrapped up in another thing that I don’t eat. So it’sContinue reading “Stuffed Cabbage”
MEAL PREP: One Skillet Cashew Chicken Stir-fry Wedding gifts keep pouring in and I recently received a beautiful Le Crueset cast iron pan in sexy-red (image to follow). With proper maintenance, a good cast iron pan is indestructible! This thing is a work of art, and I was really excited to use it. So I wentContinue reading “One Skillet Cashew Chicken Stir-fry”
MEAL PREP: Beef and Chicken and Broccoli I like Chinese food as much as everyone else does, but when you get Chinese takeout it’s full of crappy oils, crappy ingredients, and leaves you feeling just like it, crappy. Luckily, you can quickly whip up these flavors at home by swapping out their crappy ingredients withContinue reading “Beef and Chicken and Broccoli”
