Paleo Kitchen Sink Slop

Paleo Kitchen Sink Slop

If you’ve read more than a few of these “Fat Boy Friday” posts you’ve probably noticed that I’m a pretty lazy cook. More accurately I’m a lazy dish washer. My stance is why would I use multiple pans, pots, and dishes when I could just use one.

If it made sense to cook and eat in the same dish you can bet your ass I’d be doing that.

Well, the recipes have been pretty crockpot heavy lately, so I figured why not switch it up a bit. It’s still a one dish meal, but this one is so customizable that I could easily fill an enter year worth of Fat Boy Friday with variations. [Read more…]

Ice Baths: Shrinkage is Only a Temporary Side Affect

Ice Baths: Shrinkage is Only a Temporary Side Affect

Jumping into an ice bath is never the first thing on anyones mind. After a hard workout, nothing feels better than just laying there and doing nothing.

But, sometimes it’s not really the best thing to do. At some point you will feel the need or want to take a bit more of a proactive approach to recovery.

Simple Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Simple Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are heavenly. Seriously, they’re really good.

But, since I’ve eaten them I’ve never been able to cook them just right. Sometimes they’re too squishy, sometimes I cut them completely un-even so half are burnt and the other half isn’t cooked, or sometimes they taste like carrots. That last one always weirds me out a little…

After about 3 straight weeks of having sweet potatoes every…single…night, I think I got it. [Read more…]

Randomness 2012-15

Randomness 2012-15

Hokay….

So whenever I get into a creative funk, or any type of funk for that matter, I usually end up passing time and clearing my head by watching some of my favorite music videos from back in the day.

I have no idea why, or how, but it clears my mind perfectly. My guess is that it has to do with how I used to prepare for football games back in high school. You guessed it, I prepared by watching music videos before I’d head to the locker room.

A little Sum 41, some Disturbed, and always a lot Blink-182 was what put me in the mindset to get shit done. [Read more…]
