Are you guys excited or WHAT. Now that we all know what quinoa is, it’s time to eat that stuff. So, eat it with all of this other stuff, in this recipe!

(are you a vegetarian? or out of chicken? just leave out the chicken. quinoa gives you enough protein on its own. i just maybe get too obsessed with lean protein and just GO NUTS on it.)

Here’s what you’ll need: Read More


Okay everybody it’s time to get going with some meatballs. Regular meatballs are made with ground beef, which is not a great source of lean protein, as we all know. These meatballs are a recipe that my mother makes, that was passed down to her by Rachael Ray. We made some adjustments and now they are perfect fitnessing meatballs. SO HERE YOU GO. Read More

If you’ve been fitnessing for a while, you know that all in all it’s basically a big thumbs up. You have energy, you’re getting stronger, you can eat cool stuff and drink wine all the time (and cocktails sometimes) and you’ve got endorphins to spare.  This is all very positive.

However, there is one sad thing about fitnessing, which is that you can’t eat a bunch of spoonfuls of mayonnaise. Or really even one spoonful, if we’re being honest here.  This is tragic because any “salad” that isn’t your standard lettuce-and-friends concoction is made with mayo as a main component. Potato salad, pasta salad, tuna salad, chicken salad, and egg salad are all mayonnaise-fests.


One of the many reasons this stuff is awesome is that you can make it at the beginning of the week and it lasts forever. It makes about 8 servings, and since there’s no meat in it, it will stay good for a couple weeks. So basically you only have to cook once and you have a healthy, warm, tasty, filling meal for like ever. THERE’S THAT EFFICIENCY AGAIN.

OK so here is what you need to make this. Read More

Do you love food so much, just SO much? Yes well as part of fitnessing, when you love food so much, it is much easier to eat different foods than to eat no foods. Thus, healthy recipes.

Are you terrible at cooking, just SO terrible? Yes well as part of eating healthy recipes, you have to first make them. So, don’t be scared, we’re going to do this together, and it. will. be. fun.

This first recipe was made on an 11-montherversary, and it has been referred to as 11-month pork ever since, so 11-month pork it shall remain (you can also use chicken for this, and just reduce the cooking temp to 350; 11-month chicken is just as good). If you want to call it Pineapple-Walnut Pork or Walnut-Salsa Pork, go ahead, but don’t expect me to understand what you’re talking about.
