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 section of Peter Collins’ daily […]

What’s For Lunch? Peppered Shrimp Bento Box

UPC’s Peppered Shrimp Bento Box It’s cool and rainy outside. There isn’t a lot of rain, but the rain drops that are coming down are generally bigger ones. I love weather like this for running; there’s really nothing quite as refreshing as the brisk feel of a light wind and some fat cool raindrops falling […]


What’s For Lunch? Smoked Salmon Bento Box

UPC’s Smoked Salmon Bento Box Ok, I’ll admit it… I’m an addict! I’m an unmitigated food addict. It’s always been my “drug of choice,” so to speak, and that hasn’t changed one iota over the years. And I love it!! “I’m UPC, and I’m an addict.” “Welcome UPC.” All jokes (mostly) aside, these Bento-Box lunches […]

What’s For Lunch? Balsamic Pulled Chicken Bento Box

Balsamic Pulled Chicken Bento Box with Salad Eggs and a Green Salad I changed jobs about 2 months ago. There are a couple of things that happen to me when I change jobs. My sources of stress change (not more, and usually less, but it’s quite different). There are always the early questions in any […]


UPC Bento-Box: Apple Sausage, Sweet Potato Fries, Herb “Sweet” Salad

Another UPC’s Bento-Box Lunch; and a new treat: the Herb “Sweet” Salad I have a sweet tooth. In fact, if there was a “Sweet Tooth’s Anonymous,” I would most definitely need to be a member. I realize that Humans are naturally predisposed to having a sweet tooth. There is a very good evolutionary reason for […]

UPC’s Pocket Guide To: Sprucing up your Leftovers

Sprucing Up Your Leftovers – Today’s meal: Chicken Croquette As you may or may not recall, I made some Paleo Crispy Chicken Croquettes last week. They came out delicious, and my wife immediately started to get excited about what other ways we could start to re-incorporate chicken in our diets. Truth be told: we eat […]


What’s For Lunch? Bacon, Ham, and Olive Salad

UPC’s Bacon, Ham, and Olive Salad I had an awesome weekend! I’m not going to write an entire post on what I did this weekend (I’m saving that for my 1-mile race, coming up), but I am definitely going to share. The highlight of my weekend was a “Super Spartan” race that I did with […]

What’s For Lunch? Pulled Pork and Bacon Bento Box

UPC’s Pulled-Pork and Bacon Bento Box Lunch I had a surprisingly good reaction from you folks about my Bento-Box style lunch menu last week. It would seem this is something you’re all interested in, in general. So I am going to try to put together a Bento-Box style meal at least once a week. By […]


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, setting up your new apartment, […]

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 course Nook was one of […]
