You don’t need a new diet.

Unless you subsist on Cheetos.  Love em, not sustainable. The January monsoon of diet advice is raining down upon us.  I saw this article from NPR in my news feed today with the Mediterranean reigning supreme and the poor Keto diet coming in last.  I’ve done most ALL of them and they ALL work.

If there’s one thing you change about your eating behaviors, consider consistency as being at the top of that list.  The problem with consistency is boredom.  Enter sauces: the savior of boring meals.  Caution:  Sauces have calories.  Did I really need to write this?

Considering there’s a video, I don’t think this requires much explanation. So watch it! Take home message: ribs can be a part of most any diet.  Don’t you go dying on me now. If paleo: drop the brown sugar, add a little honey when applying the coconut oil and before the dry rub.  Run a […]

Suitcase Kitchen, Ep 1: Beef Jerky – A Love Story

This is a repost, but the message is the same and now we have video!!  Enjoy Prince, the meats and my stupid humor.
