Suitcase Kitchen: Stuffed Pork

Happy new year!  Yes, it’s still an appropriate pleasantry as this is my first real post of 2017.  I gather a mess of you are in the midst of a New Year’s Resolution or just trying to pick up the pieces after a messy (read: fun) holiday season.  I fall into the latter category.  Every year.

No need for excessive motivational words.  Long and short: Prepare.   There’s simply no better return on investment that having quality meals available.  You’ll be better in the gym, better at work, patient with your spouse, kids and will miraculously learn calculus.  I like pork, here’s a recipe.

If you need some motivation, check out my last motivational video regarding fitness communities.  We’re here for you.


I’ve been a little lazy on my posting in this space, but I remain pretty active on Instagram (@suitcasefitness) – follow me there.

Keep at it!

Dry Rub Ribs!

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 thin line of honey down the meaty side and spread with your hands.

If atkins/keto: no sugar of any kind in the rub.

If zone: you can eat as shown, but you have to think about how many grams or “blocks” of fat you’re alloted per meal.  Since ribs are a fattier cut, you can’t approach with reckless abandon as people might on atkins/keto or paleo diets. 4 oz meat = 18g protein, 18g fat – subdivide appropriately!

Stay on your game and enjoy your delicious treats!
