Healthy Hotel Cooking

Healthy Hotel Cooking

This may not pertain to all of you. Or even be a huge deal more than once or twice a year. But, it’s still something that I get asked on a weekly basis so I figured I’d share some of my tactics.

And what do you know, I’m currently living in an hotel for the next 4ish weeks. Funny how that works.

Your best bet to staying sane while trying to eat healthy and mostly cheap while in a hotel is by staying boring and basic.

Yeah, we all want ribeyes with grilled asparagus all of the time. But some of us don’t want to lug around a grill wherever we drive, and others don’t feel like going to the local park in 10-20 degree weather just to grill a steak.

This isn’t a guide on how to eat, so much as it’s a guide to what to eat. The how has already been taken care of by The Renegade Diet.

WTF are Macronutrients? Pt. 2

Testosterone in a Bowl

Testosterone in a Bowl

See that guy to the left?

This is what he eats for every single meal. Then he washes it down with the blood of a freshly killed unicorn. After that it’s some Ben and Jerry’s for desert, because it makes him feel fancy.

Ok…some (all) of that might be a tad bit of an exageration. But, what is NOT an exageration, is the fact that you can increase the amount of testoserone by simply choosing to eat some certain foods.

This dish wasn’t made specifically to increase testosterone, in fact I’m sure this dish has been around for freaking ever. But if you’re as thick-headed as I am sometimes you probably never put two and two together. [Read more…]
