The Inescapable Hole–Part II

If it was not enough to be captivated by the first batch of high protein donuts, I do not blame you. Once you have fallen into the hole of {better for you} donut excellence, you may seldom have the desire to be lifted out by their sugar-laden alternatives.

A Full Week of Full Plates: Monday

I would like to take the opportunity to provide a visual account of my high-volume style of eating. Each day over the next week, I will be posting examples of every meal I prepare to give you an idea of how making choices to get the largest portion size for your macronutrients can result in satisfyingly full plates (and lots of them). It does take some time and effort for food preparation, but it is well worth it. I assure you, when those plates are empty, your stomach will not be. If nothing else, please enjoy the food porn!

Don’t be Shy; Pile it High!

While it is never a good idea to make a mountain out of a molehill, making a mountain out of your sandwich filling is always worth the effort of meticulously piling it on. I think few people (and their stomachs) would disagree.
