Pork Fingers 6

¬† Pork Fingers I like finger food as much as the next guy. Really, I do. Finger food is probably featured in at least one meal per day. Every day. It’s just incredibly satisfying to eat a meal with my fingers. So, I have a huge amount of respect for […]

Smoked Kebab Salad and a Tribute

A Tribute. Lately it seems like I am tired all the time. I come home tired. I flop down on my couch after a workout, preparing and eating dinner, and wish that I had the energy to write. I wake up in the morning tired, barely buoyed by the prospect […]

Burgers and Golden Beet Salad 1

Burgers and Salad That’s it. I’m back. More on that in future posts. Goodness I am tired. I tried to stay up late to finish writing this last night but I couldn’t make myself do it. I tried. I couldn’t. Life tends to get in the way, sometimes, of the […]

After Workout Power Meal 1

UPC’s After Workout Power Meal It’s been quite some time since I’ve put up an after-workout meal for you. I guess, to be fair, it’s been a while since I had one that was as good-looking, or as good tasting, as this one. Well, that’s not entirely true… The Shredded […]


Shredded Sweet Potato Salad 8

Shredded Sweet Potato Salad It’s not always all about the meat. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of the meat that I eat, and it doesn’t take long for anyone reading my blog to recognize that immediately. Not only is meat delicious, it’s also the most nutrient dense […]

Blackened Shrimp Bento Box 2

UPC’s Blackened Shrimp Bento Box – A Hot&Cold Lunch Salad I had a lot of fun with the Hot&Cold Salad last winter and spring. It was one of my favorite ways to give myself a great helping of greens, while still enjoying a nice hot meal. Further, there’s nothing more […]
