What’s For Lunch?


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 […]


Micro Greens Chicken Salad 2

UPC’s Micro Greens Chicken Salad It’s been quite a while since I’ve written a post. For that I apologize. I’ve lost a bit of my “mojo” recently. Part of that is because I’ve just got too much on my plate in the real world. Of course, I simply need to […]

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 […]

Shredded Roast Beef Salad 1

UPC’s Shredded Roast Beef Salad My wife and I have decided that we no longer want to purchase and consume cold cuts (even the good ones with no added crap) for our salads and snacking. After doing a bit of analysis, we realized that we could buy quality roast meat […]

Bacon Avocado Maduros Hot&Cold Salad Another “What’s For Lunch?” Post! 5

UPC’s Bacon Avocado Maduros Hot&Cold Salad There is a special combination of flavors that happens when you mix Baked Maduros with a Bacon Avocado Salad. The Baked Maduros are an amazingly unique combination of sweet and savory. Somehow the rich earthy flavor of the green plantains is only matured, and […]


Meat Lovers’ Bento Box Lunch 1

UPC’s Meat Lover’s Bento Box Lunch I noticed this morning that my knife is getting a bit dull. I honed it about 2 weeks ago, but it was only a honing, not a full, in-depth, focused sharpening. Usually a quickly honed edge, since I take very good care of my […]

What’s For Lunch? Cooked Ham and Rutabaga Chips Bento Box

UPC‘s Cooked Ham and Rutabaga Chips Bento Box First, a bit of news: One of the news pieces that I enjoyed and shared over Twitter (I think I may have found it on Twitter too – so it might be a retweet) was featured, for good reason, in the Health […]
