  • Mikey's Buffalo Style Chicken Pockets are a Delicious Treat

    Healthy food doesn't have to taste like crap and while some people need grain-free, soy-free, milk/ lactose-free foods - others, like myself just enjoy a tasty snack. When the folks at Mikey's approached me, I was intrigued. I LOVE hot pockets for their sheer simplicity as a quick snack. While I have no illusions that the classic is anything but a tasty mass-produced processed snack, the idea that you could make an equally tasty alternative intrigued me. 

  • Looking For A Uniquely Delicious Take On Protein Drinks

    It's no secret that I'm working to improve myself during this time spent locked in my home. While I still enjoy a beer, I've continued to try and grab an energy drink for breakfast or a late-night snack instead of grazing the freezer. While I've been a long time fan of another protein shake brand, when the folks at Iconic Protein contacted me I was immediately intrigued. While most brands have chocolate and vanilla... they had the staples plus unique flavors such as Cacao Greens and Tumeric Ginger. I was a bit nervous on my first sip because I wasn't sure what to expect. Sure, it was unique... but would it be good?

  • Kate's Real Food Snack Bites and Bars are Really Good!

    I'm not really a crunchy granola type of guy but like most of you I know what I like and that's stuff that is fun to eat, tastes great and is high quality. That's not to say that I don't enjoy a candy bar here and there, but there's a clear difference between something like what I just enjoyed as a 2 am snack to help me power through one last article... and something simply packed with refined sugar. That's why I am in love with Kate's Real Food and I can't wait to explore more of the treats in the box they sent me a few weeks ago.

  • Dietary Fiber Is Important to Staying Happy and Healthy When Traveling

    When you travel, it takes a toll on the body. Not just being exhausted from irregular sleep but your gut gets thrown out of whack too. While we know that eating better, drinking more water, stretching, and getting more rest can help – fiber is key too. I used to laugh when I’d hear people talking about “staying regular” but as I matured, I realized that keeping your digestive system happy has a lot more benefits than just being able to poop better! Now, it’s my key to avoiding the bio-lag due to poor food choices and chaotic schedules when I travel.

  • Taking a Deeper Look at Keto Recipes - Sausage Bites and Roasted Radishes

    Everyone seems to be talking about doing a Keto Diet recently, but I'd never really looked into it that deeply. Plus, One of my resistances to going back on a diet like this was how people all too often abuse "Atkins" style diets. There's absolutely no debate in my mind that this style of diet works - I lost over 100 pounds following a very strict regimen... but then gained more back after quitting. The key to being able to succeed though is focusing on balance and creativity. So, with that in mind I walked around my local grocery store a few days ago and dreamed up two easy to make keto recipes. My conditions for success were: 1) it had to taste great 2) it had to have good colors that were visually interesting and 3) it had to be easy to make. Plus, ultimately it had to follow a fairly strict interpretation of the keto nutrition guidelines.

  • Ham and Harvest Hearty 15 Bean Soup Recipe

    For most of you, winter is in full swing right now and that means it's time to warm up with a steaming bowl of hearty soup. I've also found that for some reason there seems to be a lot of spiral cut hams on sale right now. Perhaps it's just that "after the holidays" inventory close out, but who am I to complain. My only problem was that I end up leaving an awful lot of meat on the bone after eating the slices. So, instead of throwing them out - let's make soup!

    How many times have you heard "healthy" and thought, "YUCK!"? Probably most of you thought that at least once, but it doesn't have to be that way. The problem is that most "healthy" recipes are written by people that prefer "health" over big robust tastes, textures, and experience. I'm here to say that it doesn't have to be that way!

    Dreamfields has presented me with a challenge to create an innovative recipe that includes: Beer, Smoked / Grilled Meats, Hot Peppers, Lemon, and a Vegetable of choice + two other ingredients that features their "Healthy Carb Living" pasta. By participating in this challenge, a donation will be made to a food pantry of my choice and the winning recipe creator will be able to donate an even larger amount.

  • Healthy Living in a Fast - not Fat Paced Lifestyle ...

    Like most guys, I lead a busy lifestyle and unfortunately that frequently means meals that aren't the most healthy. After all, it's easy to grab a burrito from the freezer and stick it in the microwave for a few minutes and call it lunch. In the past, I haven't been a fan of frozen meals but I decided to try the new LEAN CUISINE® Marketplace meals. These new offerings come in three categories that are much more upscale and designed for today's lifestyle: "Made With Organic Ingredients", "High Protein", and "Gluten Free". The days of being limited to salsbury steak and enchiladas are gone. Instead I found more appetising offerings including: Vermont White Cheddar Mac & Cheese, Sweet Sriracha Braised Beef, and... ok I lied - you can still have Spicy Beef & Bean Enchiladas!
