fat balls

  go ahead and giggle.  fat balls.  say it a couple times and snicker a bit more, and, now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk about these fat and protein-packed little jokers that satiate like none other.     healthy fat is good for you.  healthy fat keeps your brain and body functioning,  your […]

the glute-growing circuit

i like to keep my workouts dynamic, alternating from weight lifting to H.I.I.T. to plyometrics-based resistance training on a weekly, sometimes daily basis.  after asking my friends on instagram if any of them would be interested in seeing more fitness-related content on this effervescent life, i’ve chosen to listen to the masses (roughly seven people) […]

oh, balls! bliss balls

some might call these power balls.  they won’t make you a multi-millionaire, but they will keep you energized and enthused throughout your day, ready to go balls to the wall (too easy, i know). the last time i checked, the combination of chocolate and peanut butter served as my simple proof that God exists and […]

not your mama’s corn chowder

this is the only photo i have of my chowder.  why?  because i ate it all.  should i have garnished it and focused a bit more on presentation?  perhaps.  but that would’ve required me to delay its consumption, and that, my friend, was not about to happen.  so instead you’re stuck with this basic representation […]
