Food for Thought: “Dolce far Niente” (Italian for “The Sweetness of Doing Nothing”)…..

….is a phrase I caught from that movie with Julia Roberts, "Eat Pray Love" I'm your typical guy, football and war movies is the norm, but I live in Seattle and work in Portland Oregon, where I am now, and can be down here at a hotel for weeks at a time. In cases like […]

Body (Part 11), a.k.a., “The Cult of Personality”

In the arduous task that it is collecting photos of buffed females (great work if you can get it into your routine), this batch of "booming, buffed, babes" I saved because of their unique style, funky fresh workout gear, hip attitude, and their, shall we say, "female swag". I saved them over time on my […]

Trying to look at this “cancer thing” with some sense of logic

Cancer rates amongst Japanese Americans [seem to] become similar to cancer rates of Americans, AFTER adopting the American lifestyle and diet. BTW, in case it needs to be said, I am not advocating going out and eating Sushi to stay healthy. I'm not a super big Sushi fan myself. I'm into the art of the […]

“Ugly Duckling” Coconut Banana Cinnamon Muffins

That "Ugly Duckling" name came from my mothers awesome baking skills from my childhood. Her cookies and muffins were always "irregular shaped", looked funny and "Ugly" compared to the perfect symmetry of Hostess Ho-Ho's, Cupcakes, and Ding-Dongs. But man they were so good 🙂 In my article, "My Top 10 Eating Habits to Lose Bodyfat, […]

My Top 10 Eating Habits to help Lose Bodyfat, Cellulite, and Weight

One of the reasons people can't take off and keep off weight is the majority of our food is "fake food", which the body stores as bodyfat and cellulite , since the body was never designed to process so much of what we eat. Just like when we don't wanna throw away stuff at home, […]

Stuffed Baked Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are kinda like this nutritional powerhouse that seems to just be sitting out there unutilized, except, as in my family, on Thanksgiving and Christmas. The good thing about making stuffed sweet potatoes is that I can go vegetarian when I want, and I can stuff with some quality protein when I want. I […]

Nike Training Club: Carmelita Jeter’s 15 minute HIT (High Intensity Training) Workout

I wrote about HIT (High Intensity Training) in a previous article called "Bulking Up vs. Slimming Down: When it comes to workouts, more is less and less is more". The theory, which seems to be catching on, is that the shorter and more intense routines put on muscle and get one more "cut" (think of […]

The “Kiss from a Rose”, Almond and Rose Bread

I remember when I worked in Connecticut a few years back, and trying to win the "affections" of a lady in Hartford, I was considering sending her flowers, since I heard from a friend of hers she loved roses, but when it came to flowers, her girl said she liked something original, not the flowers […]
