Programming Note: February Hiatus + Whole30 Wrap-Up

Yeah, I’m going to take the rest of February off in an attempt to unplug for a bit. But before I do, I’ll leave you with one more rant to entertain you (see here). Never fear, I’ve got some fun stuff in the pipeline for March, but sometimes I like to pretend I have a […]

Recipe: Bacon-Green Chile Meatloaf

As I mentioned in my Lamb and Olive Chili recipe, ground meat will save your life. That goes for anytime, but especially during a Whole30. But sometimes…it sure gets old, doesn’t it? I run through the usual: burgers, taco salad, tomatoey meat sauce, meatballs, even a stir-fry treatment. But I always forget about meatloaf. It’s […]

Recipe: Lamb and Olive Chili

This was one of the first meals I made for my latest Whole30. As I’ve mentioned before, ground meat during a Whole30 will save your life, and lamb switches things up nicely from beef. It’s simple, quick, a little bit different, and a whole lot of tasty. Just the thing for your busy life, whether […]

Hello 2013! And Thoughts on My Whole30

So we made it. 2013, we’re here. Now what? After I wrote my missive yesterday, the catharsis didn’t quite set in, so I went outside for some movement. I live a few blocks above our local college here, and since campus was quiet, I decided to do some Parkour + MovNat-style stuff and just explore. […]

Happy Holidays, and Phew! They’re Almost Over

Happy Holidays! I realize that statement has become a loaded greeting depending on who’s receiving it, but as it’s intended, it’s coming from an atheist with Scandinavian ancestry who appreciates celebrating the shifting of seasons, good food, good friends, and family this time of year. As much as the rampant consumerism and waste bothers me, […]

Makin’ Bacon: Part 2

Let’s imagine that we have a time machine and 7-10 days have passed and not just two. You followed the directions for curing the pork belly and it’s been hanging out in your fridge with you flipping it every other day. Now it’s time to smoke it. But you don’t have a smoker. What to […]

Makin’ Bacon: Part 1

Hey guys! Good to see you again. It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? Since Karen had to go and take a little vacation, I thought I’d stop by and tell you all about my recent adventure of making my own bacon. Oh yes, you heard me right. I made my own bacon. And not in that […]

Your Whole30 Survival Guide

There’s no doubt a Whole30 takes preparation. When mine began on October 2, I was out of town and had attended a wedding the night before. We got home, the fridge wasn’t stocked, and I hadn’t given much thought to the whole thing. The first few days weren’t very inspiring, but you gotta roll with […]

My Whole30 Results

Sooo…I meant to take before and after photos. And I didn’t. Partly because I’m not very photogenic right now (I average 2 1/2 showers a week and have about 15 minutes to get ready before getting my daughter out the door), and partly because I wasn’t in this for any weight loss or image enhancement.

Whole30: Lessons Learned

These last 30 days, curious folk would often ask me, “Why?” From their perspective, I was already so “restricted” in my way of eating, that it was hard to fathom what I could possibly gain by going even stricter. As I mentioned in my Oh-crap-the-Whole30-is-starting-soon post, there were four things I was thinking as I […]
