UPC’s Fig-Paste Slathered 8-Hour Ribs 3

UPC’s Fig-Paste Slathered 8-Hour Ribs I didn’t sleep well last night, and I don’t really know why. I’m not usually concerned with my sleep for two reasons: 1. I always sleep well. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t always sleep long enough! But when I sleep, it’s always good, quality, […]


What’s for dinner? Spaghetti Squash and Meat Sauce 5

UPC’s Spaghetti Squash and Meat Sauce It’s meat-sauce season! Being Italian, my blood runs red with Meat Sauce – it’s as important to me and my cold-weather sanity as running and swimming are to my warm-weather sanity! I honestly can’t imagine (or don’t want to – there’s no meaningful difference […]


What’s For Dinner? Slab Bacon and Steak Heaped with Caramelized Onions

What’s For Lunch? Steak Hot & Cold Summer Salad

UPC’s Steak Hot & Cold Summer Salad This was a looong weekend! There are “Long Weekends” where you have an extra day due to a holiday, or perhaps a carefully chosen vacation day. And then there are looong weekends, like this one was for me, where you are still unpacking, […]


What’s For Dinner? Cocoa Steak 4

UPC’s Cocoa Steak I was paid a tremendous compliment yesterday in the comments section. And it got me thinking. Don’t worry, it didn’t hurt; at least, not yet. The compliment was something along the lines of: “You should totally start to sell your meals as a “Weekly Meal Plan and […]


What’s For Dinner? Orange Beef and Ripe Plantains 7

UPC’s Orange Beef It’s time for me to change my workouts. I’ve been doing low-rep, high weight workouts at the gym when I’ve been able to go, and I am LOVING the results I’ve been getting. My body looks excellent! I am getting muscle definition that is exactly what I’m […]


Restaurant Review: Nook, NYC

UPC’s Restaurant Review: Nook, NYC Nook used to be one of my favorite places to go eat before switching to Paleo. As can be expected, my dietary needs have changed my review criteria for restaurants, and as a result, I’ve been less inclined to head to my old haunts. Of […]
