After reading a bunch of takes on roasted corn salad / salsa, I put my own spin on this dish. I didn’t use any red onions, because one of our friends hates raw onions. I added deglazing the pan with some poblano liqueur for an extra zip. I also added some tajin, because I think … Continue reading Roasted corn salad recipe
A few months back Jeney and I visited Sprouts Farmers Market and purchased a pack of Krave plant-based jerky. To say that it was not as good as their competitors is quite frankly an understatement. The product itself was incredibly firm, lacked flavor and just wasn’t great. I let them know if my discontent. What … Continue reading The Saga of Krave Vegan Jerky

Unfortunately, today was one of those days where I just did not feel like working out. Most days, I kind of look forward to it. Some days, I absolutely look forward to it. Today, I just wanted to eat chocolate, drink decaf coffee and work from home.

Today when I weighed myself, I gained a full pound from yesterday. It kind of pissed me off because I was so … Continue reading Day 30: one month of exercise!
Through my journey of getting healthier, I have cut back my drinking – a lot. Heck, for 2.5 weeks I didn’t drink at all! That said, I do still want a beer some days. So in the effort to keep my blood pressure down, I have been trying out non-alcoholic beers. Some of them have … Continue reading Non-alcoholic beers: which ones are the worst? (Part 1)
Today’s workout was for 35 minutes. I upped the resistance on the stationary bike and got in 5 mi over the course of 23 minutes. I can’t lie at all, the increased resistance whooped my ass! Got my heart rate up and it made me rather tired. Despite being tired, after I was done with … Continue reading Day 29: 4 weeks down, a lifetime to go…
