Different Breakfast and Cottage Cheese

This was breakfast last Friday. A bit unique so thought I’d share, and again incorporating different things you might not have tried before.


What the heck is that you ask? Now looking at it… doesn’t look so pretty lol ¬†…. but boy did the taste make up for it.

Maybe better from a distance ūüôā

Perhaps a little better but not much.

So what do we have here you ask?

Fresh avocado cubes with organic hemp hearts, drizzle of olive oil and a few squares of sweet potato crust quiche my beautiful wifey made us.

Incredibly tasty, and also very satiating…even after a heavy morning workout.

By the way, if you do Cottage Cheese… do me a favor, try this brand, and let me know what you think.


Keep on trucking….and BE HAPPY

Easiest and Tastiest Cauliflower Recipe

So sometimes I get emails from folks that are a bit frustrated with my explanations on how to prepare something.

So with no further blah blah… here probably my Easiest and (can be) tastiest Cauliflower recipe and so easy it’s ridiculous.

Obviously some organic cauliflower, but next to it a large bowl of home made hummus. Recipe to follow for hummus next post.

So let’s do this- cut up your cauliflower into florets. Med-high heat,¬†drizzle extra virgin olive oil in your pan liberally. Slice 1-2 garlic gloves and add to oil…don’t let that garlic burn please. Next toss in your cauliflower and sprinkle with sea salt and fresh pepper..now let it sit for about 60 seconds…were shooting for a tiny bit of caramelization without burning. Now with the pan nice and hot and things heating up, toss it all around a bit and next¬†give it a splash of white wine or my favorite Shaoxing wine. Toss together well after letting it buble up for a second or so. Now turn heat allllllll the way low and cover your pan with a lid. About 12 minutes and it’s ready. Do check on it to make sure there’s enough moisture and that your yumminess is not¬†burning while steaming. How easy?

I think you will be honestly blown away by the flavor…some folk that try this can’t believe cauliflower can taste so good and with hardly any ingredients added. No shredded cheese and not rice to imitate by doing all sorts of stuff. Just plain old cauliflower ūüôā

Let’s dress it up for a POWER lunch…

Can I get a HECK YEAH?!¬† ūüėČ

Cauliflower with a few macadamia nuts, home made toasted coconut (need recipe??), arugula, spring mix salad, fresh cilantro, avocado and hummus.

Just again for some context… I have a pretty busy day to day.

My days are long and awful when energy levels naturally¬†dip around 2-3 pm…

I try to choose the type of foods that fight that energy drop a bit…

Try it sometime, I think you will be please with the results. Everyone’s mileage varies…but a burger and coke works for SO FEW people out there….


You’re one and only problem and the very basis of your “unhappiness”, is that life is not happening the way you think it should happen” SG



Calories In…

Keep it simple… heat low, cook it slow:

Little bit of (real) grass fed ground beef (approx. 3 ounces) , onion,  par boiled potato (cubed) and yellow carrot. SLOWLY cooked in a some olive oil, sea salt, pepper.

Simple right? This cooked for about 15 minutes while I was in the shower…turned it over and cooked another few minutes (3).

Super easy and quick way to get yourself out the door with food for lunch. Added Fat (evoo) is actually quite low for this meal, about 1 heaping teaspoon.

Calories in….so what about calories out?

If you’re trying to shed a¬†few pounds… or perhaps getting your summer beach body going, what are you doing about the calories OUT part?

If you want to answer this question¬†with exercise or something akin to¬†those lines, I have something to share with you….
