Bite the Bullet and Try Bulletproof Matcha Tea Today

Green Goo That’s Good For You

I’m going to just come out and say it – I’m not a big fan of coffee.

Blasphemy! Heresy! Apostasy!

Whatever. I’ve never developed a taste for the bitterness of roasted coffee, so I typically choose tea instead. When the bulletproof coffee craze came along, I gave it a try because I figured the fat would help cut the bitterness. It does in fact help cut the bitterness and I drank bulletproof coffee regularly for a time as a morning meal replacement to help ease my transition to intermittent fasting  (no eating between 7pm-11am). Once I had fully transitioned I went back to drinking tea, but I missed the smooth buttery taste of bulletproof coffee. Sadly, none of the teas I like really jive with being mixed with fats. Then I found matcha and everything changed. Read on to find out how.

True to Form Review Decompresion and Anchoring Example

True to Form Review

True to Form by Eric Goodman

Dr. Eric Goodman, the creator of Foundation Training, is back with a follow up to his first book, which I previously reviewed. The bottom line of that review is that Foundation Training is the real deal, it addressed my back pain, and I’m a believer in Dr. Goodman and his system. I preordered this book not knowing exactly what to expect, but hoping that it would break new ground and not just be a rehash of the material presented in the previous book. It was recently released and I’ve now read it all the way through. So, does it live up to my expectation? Read on to find out!

Does it live up to the hype? Let’s find out!

Small Batch Artisanal Raw Honey Infused With Sprouted Garlic

Brought to you by the “Because plain artisanal raw honey is too mainstream” department

Ingredients and Equipment

I got the idea for this from a post on David Wolfe’s blog about the health benefits of combining raw honey and garlic. I like garlic and I like honey, so I decided to see if they go great together like peanut butter and chocolate, or if they’re a bad combination like alcohol and bitter tears. Which is it? Let’s find out!

He probably didn't buy those bagpipes on Craigslist

How To Win at Craigslist!

Winning at Craigslist!

There are many aspects to fitness, financial fitness being one of them. One of the downsides of being a fitness junkie is that I’ve tried and ultimately discarded a lot of fitness-related gear over the years. I’ve also moved many, many times, and each time it seemed easier to shed a good chunk of the stuff I’d accumulated rather than haul it all to my new dwelling.

For times like those I’ve always turned to Craigslist unload the stuff I no longer want or need. As a result, I’ve gotten pretty savvy at how to get the best price for what I want to sell and I’m going to share this info with you.

Confessions of a fitness junkie

 I admit it

I’m a junkie. The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem, right?

Well, I have a problem. I have a burning desire to improve my life but limited time and resources available to pursue improvements. I’m willing to work hard but I get bored easily. These factors have contributed to me trying and ultimately discarding multiple diets, exercise programs, equipment, and protocols to help me lose weight, get stronger, have more energy, less pain, etc.

I’ve spent a lot of time, money, and energy looking for a magical fitness fix. Sadly, it doesn’t exist.
