The Whole30, Days 1-15



After learning about The Whole 30 from our Crossfit gym and reading It Starts with Food, the BJJ Cavewife and I were ready to begin.

To kick off the Whole 30, we were asked to state our commitment on the Facebook page.

Here is my statement:

“I am committing to the Whole 30. Exception is some white rice for post workout carbs.

I’m also going to be doing some metabolic measurements which I was planning on doing already, so this might go against the whole not taking measurements thing.”

Step 1 complete.… Read More

It was pretty awesome to come face to face with one of these threats from my childhood.  I came within 10 feet of it and it was one of the most beautiful and amazing things I’ve ever seen.… Read More

Kimera Koffee Review



I first heard about Kimera Koffee in a sponsored ad on the Ben Greenfield podcast.  Ben espoused the benefits of having nootropics in coffee and how great he felt when he drank this.  He even took to sprinkling in additional boosts like chaga mushroom powder and various other things that created a super potion for him.

After hearing him talk about this enough times, my mind inexplicably went from, “you’re not going to catch me with your fancy marketing” to “hmmm maybe there’s something to this, why not give it a try?”

I swear I really must be a podcast marketers dream.… Read More
