Make Body Fat Cry – The Full Body Blaster(video)

July 15th, 2014 | Moving

Recently there has been a buzz in the fitness world around “highly metabolic” body weight workouts. Why?

Well, for once you can believe the hype, because this kind of workout is exceptionally effective, and addresses most roadblocks people have with exercising. For example…

  1. They don’t have time for long workouts between family and work
  2. Lack of a gym membership(or even a desire for one!)
  3. No experience working out, not sure where to start

The Power of Propolis

Earlier this year, I went to Serbia to visit my brother and his wife.  We were in the mountains skiing and saw local street vendors selling fresh mountain honey and other bee products, including propolis. I had never seen or heard of propolis before.

World Cup abs: Tim Howard’s secret fitness solution

July 6th, 2014 | Eating, Living

The 2014 World Cup in Brazil is in full swing right now.  For those US soccer fans out there, you probably witnessed the epic game the US Men’s National Team played against Belgium last Thursday.

MVP of the game was a clear choice: Tim Howard, goalkeeper and downright badass!  Although they lost in the end, Howard blocked a record breaking 16 shots on goal from the Belgians, the most ever in a World Cup match.  He kept his team alive throughout the nail biting 120 minutes of play.  His stamina, focus, agility and strength blew everyone all over the world away! He was even randomly drug-tested right after the game because of his performance (he passed with flying colors of course).

I can’t believe it’s butter!

June 29th, 2014 | Dangerous Food, Eating, Fat,

It seems like the war on fat is starting to lose some steam.  I mean, Time magazine’s most recent issue even has a beautifully carved slab of butter right on the front cover!  It’s great to see the mainstream media finally catching on and admitting the idea that fat = heart disease may not have been accurate, like we once thought.

Paleo Pintxos Week Finale – Recipe Roundup and More!

Welcome to the final day of Paleo Pintxos Week! I can’t believe the week is over, and we’ll be leaving San Sebastian soon for the south of France, and then to Croatia for two weeks. San Sebastian has been so inspiring and we’re sad to go, but we’ll never forget the wonderful people we’ve met here and the amazing food we’ve eaten. There’s no doubt that we’ll continue to throw our own Pintxo Parties when we get back to Santa Monica, and who knows, perhaps we’ll be back in San Sebastian faster than you can say pintxo.

Paleo Pintxos Week – Recipe 6 of 7 – Lazy Deviled Eggs with Shrimp and Aioli

June 26th, 2014 | Appetizers, Eating, Recipes

A popular pintxo we order time and time again in San Sebastian are the Gamba, Huevo y Mahonesa. Simply shrimp/prawns, a hard-boiled egg and mayonnaise. Similar to all the other pintxos in this town, each bar has their distinct way of making it; sometimes it’s skewered and lays flat on a plate. Other times, with pickled peppers and olives piled high.

We’ve seen them skewered with bacalao (salted cod), sometimes langoustine, crab meat or simply on a piece of bread along with a mound of cheese (ummmm, skip that one). The Gamba, Huevo y Mahonesa is similar to a deviled egg, but instead of removing the cooked yolk, mixing it with mayonnaise and piping it back onto the egg, they simply put mayo (or aioli) on the flat-side of the egg, thus allowing multiple toppings to be piled high, and secured with a long skewer. The egg then becomes the foundation of all good things. Yeah, we agree.
