My Chilled Kale and Corn Chowder is Gluten-Free, Vegan, and DELICIOUS.

August 10, 2015

How did you spend your Saturday afternoon? I spent mine soaking my nuts.

Get your minds out of the gutter! I’m talking about cashews.

I had no idea that soaking nuts was a thing. It’s popular among folks that Read the rest of this entry »


30 Days of Strength Exercises…COMPLETED!

August 6, 2015

Today I did five minutes of skaters, an exercise that sorta replicates a speed skater’s stride without the nuisance of ice skates or ice.

It was Day 30 of the Bowflex Summer Strong Challenge, which meant that once I finished the skaters… I had finished the challenge! WOOHOO!

Pea Salad with Avocado Dressing

August 5, 2015

I’m liking peas right now. I’ve never disliked peas, but I’ve never eaten them much. Prior to last month, I had only bought peas twice in a decade, and it was bags of frozen peas to ice injuries.

But now I’m eating peas a whole lot more, and coming up with fun ways of eating them, like this salad:

My Pea Salad with Avocado Dressing¬†is easy to make, too. I started with Read the rest of this entry »


August Weigh-In and Monthly Progress Report

August 4, 2015

I do a monthly weigh-in, and I took a deep breath before stepping on the scale the other day. I reminded myself of what I wrote last week (about rethinking maintenance), including that while the number on the scale is an indicator of how things are going, it’s just one of many.

The big picture is that I’ve done – and continue to do – incredible things, so I’m gonna try to not equate a smaller number with success, or a larger number with failure. Nor will I make any judgments regarding self-worth,¬†positive or negative, after reading the scale.

Grilled Watermelon Salad

July 30, 2015

My friends know I like to eat healthy. So when they have parties, more often than not, I’m asked to bring a salad. It happened the other day, and it’s happening again this weekend. And you know what? They’ve come to the right guy!

I love salads. I love trying new things. I love cooking for other people, and bringing a delicious dish with lots of flavor that’s also guilt-free. For this party, I wanted to Read the rest of this entry »


A Hike to an Illegal Teahouse High in the Mountains

July 29, 2015

I’ve gone on some pretty fun hikes with my pal Jeff. We’ve crossed the Bridge to Nowhere, ascended to Inspiration Point, and walked the very same road Charlie Chaplin once famously walked. A few days ago, we went on another fun hike, to find a beautiful piece of art high up on a mountain. And we got awesome (and smoggy) views along the way!
