Rings of Power by Mike GIllette

Rings of Power by Mike Gillette Cool new book from Mike Gillette about Ring Training for all fitness levels. Being on this shoot with Mike was like working with a real live action hero! (And I got to put a cinderblock on him too!) Mike knows his stuff and shares everything you need to know for his versatile go-anywhere ring training.  Full progressions of every exercise, workout plans, and all the know-how to take the training as far as you wish. Good stuff, and yes, that's me on the left side of the cover  :)

What do you eat with you're really busy? Part 2

A good friend and fellow RKC asked some time ago about what I eat when I'm really busy - and considering that today I'm leading 2 classes (one down, one to go), dealing with some banking issues, reinstalling XP Pro on the main computer, juggling a few consulting jobs, finishing up some important and fun writing projects, oh and yeah did I mention I got back from the CK-FMS last night at midnight?

Fortunately - I had the wherewithal last night to take a 1lb package of grass fed ground beef from the freezer and put it in the fridge before passing out on the minimalist Danish sleeper sofa that serves as my bed. (It kinda looks like a psychiatrist's couch, interpret that as you will).

SO... I was a little lazy this morning, and I needed to check in on the status of the renovations at my usual coffee place so I walked there, and then kept walking to an undisclosed location which as of this morning has claimed the esteemed prize as being the "best espresso in town."   The spinach and feta omelet with 2 side orders of bacon (the guy who brought it to the table was confused and I had to laugh) was also quite good.    Normally I don't eat out for breakfast, but since I'm down to one computer right now, it was fun to get some things done on their wifi while someone else delt with breakfast.

OK, back to the point...  around "normal people lunch" time - meaning "noon".  I had a sizeable snack of a partially frozen mango (seriously, better than ice cream) and two small fist fulls of raw almonds.   For mid afternoon - about 4-5pm I usually have some kind of early dinner - today it was 1/2lb of the grass fed beef prepared quickly with a snobby version of taco seasoning I purchase in bulk :)  Truthfully, any taco seasoning will do but this one has a certain LACK of weird chemical names.  So early dinner was quick guacamole as made in the Guacamole Day video, topped with fresh tomato and 1/2lb taco meat.  Its essentially all the parts of a taco salad that I enjoy and nothing else.   You can also make a quick version by putting this on top of salad greens, OR putting these items into a lettuce or tender (napa) cabbage leaf.   Add some hot sauce, salsa or whatever you want- its good - or at least I think so.

Later this evening during "Laundry, Heavy Swings and Convict Conditioning Time" I'll most likely bake a final experimental batch of some extremely top secret Primal Blueprint and Paleo compatible dark chocolate muffins.  I may eat the rest of the thawed beef - if nothing else I will cook it into patties or as grounds - haven't decided yet....


Frozen mango?

Can you explain this partially frozen mango business?  I'm intrigued, and hungry.  Do you cut it up and throw it in the freezer, or freeze the whole thing? 



Either way works - I do it the somewhat lazy way by putting the whole fully ripe mango into the freezer.   Thing is, at that point it needs to be cut in a very particular way (hmmm might have to make a video about this next week) with a VERY sharp knife - or it gets unsafe.  


love mangoes

these months in tropical country did "mango season" surely. I usual put mnago slices at freezer and take it as a "morning freezteeth" NB : I saw yor picture about wolfberry @ wikipedia..may I know where did you find fresh wolfberry at the market...? tqyu.. bayu.



Mango is great at any time of the day for sure.   The wolfberries are actually thawed from frozen - this product:   Surprisingly really good!
