My Latest Health Obsession: Dry Roasted Edamame

My wife and I are on a big health kick. We're doing the Jillian Michaels Body Revolution almost every day. (Or as I like to call it, the "Move my lazy ass around on the floor slowly while I sweat profusely and curse like a sailor" program.) She's also doing her best to cook healthy meals and find all sorts of healthy snacks for us. Yeah, my wife's pretty darn awesome. Except when she makes salmon. I just hates salmon... Anyways, one of the snacks she recently found for me at a health food store was Dry Roasted Edamame. It's really tough for us to find good trail mix, granola bars, ...

Win a Case of Bare Fruit Organic Cinnamon Apple Chips

When it comes to apples, I'm kind of ambivalent. I have nothing against them at all, I just don't go crazy for them. One of my wife's favorite desserts is apple pie. If I even think of talking to her while she's fork-deep into that gooey apple, cinnamon and crust mixture, I'll be spitting teeth for week.

But that's only because of some silly high cholesterol thing, and yeah I'm trying to eat healthy. Thing is, as much as I love bacon, when it comes to breakfast meats, I actually prefer sausage. And speaking of sausage (see how smooth I am?), I could eat my body weight in hot dogs if it wouldn't kill me, but even better than Nathan's Famous franks would be grilling up some kielbasa. Oh, man is that stuff good. My ...

What Does a Daddy Blogger Eat?

I had so much fun doing the 5 Things You Would Learn About Me if You Walked Through My House blog carnival that Trisha from MomDot started, that I couldn't wait to jump on it again! Apparently Trisha felt the same way, since she posted a new one today, offering a look inside her fridge and pantry. The rules are simple: no staging allowed! Just quick photos of your refrigerator, freezer, or pantry. Sounds good to me, so here goes nothing:  The Fridge! Our fridge is usually a bit more filled actually. But you can see some exciting highlights like the packages of turkey bacon I consume regularly, A1 steak sauces, and a mega ...
