My Eggplant Obsession Has Been Satiated... for Now
I was in for quite the treat last night! When I first gave up meat in 1996 I stumbled upon eggplant while working at the Subway down the street from the college campus. They were test marketing an eggplant sandwich, and as an employee I was granted one free sandwich when I worked. Maybe we were stea...[continue]
Salmon, Oysters & Scallops at Greenfire Restaurant
This past weekend I was celebrating both my wife's birthday and Valentine's day. As such, it was time for us to drop the kids off at their Nanna's house and get away as a couple for a few days. Those of you who have known me for a while are fully aware by now that [my wife] Meeks' bi...[continue]
Yum, Salmon! Last night I had salmon, brown rice and asparagus. I absolutely love asparagus, and you all already know how much I like salmon.

Meeks did it again! This salmon and linguini was outstanding, and was an excellent choice she made for me to help me along my fitness journey.

You all know how much I LOVE to make veggie subs, so I went ahead and kept it simple and made one for dinner last night.

EAT MORE PLANTS!
What y'all know about mango and Tajin? If you don't know, now you know! Seriously though, Tajin is a chile & lime seasoning that pairs perfectly with a ripe, cold and sweet mango. Served best in slices; in my opinion this delicious, sweet and tangy delight is ...[continue]
BIG BOY FOOD. This is how Big Boys feed those Big Muscles; and NOBODY makes a stake like the Mrs. Buckner AKA the First Lady of Big Strong U! I went 25 years without eating meat, and had never had an actual stake before July of 2020. Now, I am HOOKED! Seriously, it fills me up and packs me full of ...[continue]
Mrs. Buckner looking out for me again! She hooked me up with a baked chicken breast, couscous and greens! Her meal prepping for me is really helping me manage my weight and muscular size while my schedule remains extremely busy.
Ooh Weeee! Merks is gonna make sure that I don't mess up on this diet. Look at what she threw down for us for dinner tonight. The pesto was made with veggies pulled fresh out of our garden this morning 😍🤩😛

The tomatoes were perfectly sweet and zesty, and I really think we are raising some prize zu...[continue]
