Loving the variety of grocery options in my fantastic new neighborhood, I was motivated to do some home cooking. I was fortunate enough to come across the Civic Center farmer’s market, and had a little bit of fun. $13 later, all I needed was some protein to make my meat-loving self happy. I went down…

Seize the Opportunity to be Authentically You

My friends, my apologies on how long it’s been. The last two months have brought about an amazing amount of growth and development in many aspects of life.

More Than Your Body

You get up in the morning. You probably go take a shower, and then you get a look at yourself in the mirror. Do you like what you see reflected back at you? If you’re like most people, the answer is no. Too fat, too thin, man- where did those saddlebags on my thighs come…
