Quick and dirty video for a quick and dirty marinade. I’ve used this on chicken and pork, in both the crockpot and in the oven (after an overnight marindae). Pardon the random ourbursts, Marc Broussard will do that to a guy.
2 good articles worth a quick read:
Stick to your nutrition goals!
You know I’m big on making travel work for your routine. A nice article to follow with suggestions. They mention Crossfit boxes being a good source for health minded people and I’d wager that other forms of group fitness can offer similar insights.

Next, see this article about sprinting. Long story short, do it. Longer story, there’s more evidence that increasing your work capacity as suggested / popularized by Crossfit has many advantages beyond joining the sweet, sext spandex-clad cult I’m part of.
Suitcase Kitchen Episode 4!! I have to give a special thanks to those that were kind enough to let me use their video in todays post. Let’s be clear, these are easy and it simply doesn’t take that much time to make. So, you get some filler – Enjoy!

Preparation is the most important aspect of maintaining your healthy lifestyle. Whether that’s looking like a drifter with a car full of gym clothes, changes of clothes and shower necessities or just having a quick go-to snack in your bag to avoid poor food choices, there’s no axiom more crucial to supporting your healthy behavior and keeping you on track.
Burritos speak to me. Handheld edible wrappers of deliciousness. Game on. The problem is, store bought tortillas aren’t great if your’re avoiding flour and corn tortillas, well, suck. The little feast took a fair amount of work, but it’s worth it! Previously, I did a little Cinco de Mayo feast that can be found here. Disclaimer, there’s a fair amount of steps, so take short cuts as needed.
- Fresh ground pork loin
- Made adobo sauce (doubled the recipe)
- Soaked and boiled pinto beans (2c prepared)
- Made rice and quinoa (1c dry, each) – cooked and combined
- Made paleo burritos – original recipe, my ingredients:
- Saute 1 red peppers and 1/2 white onion
- Made burrito filling
As for the filling:
- Once the peppers and onions were done:
- Add 1C rice/quinoa mixture
- Add 1C beans
- Add 1/2 C adobo sauce
- Add 1 mashed banana
- Add 1lb cooked ground pork (cooked with ~ 1/2C adobo sauce previously)
- Add 1/2c water
- Add spices (1tbsp chili powder, 2 tsp salt, 2 tsp cumin, 2 tsp cayenne, 1 tsp black pepper)
- Each burrito can accomodate ~ 1.25C of filling and is roughly a 5 block zone meal
Once everything has cooked together for 5-10 min, start making your burritos and save for later.
