Lean Protein JACKPOT!

This here is a picture of a gem in the rough. This past weekend, we ordered Indian food from Tandoori-N-Curry in Milpitas for the first time. We discovered that they’ll cook up a lean, succulent Tandoori chicken breast (and wing) for only $4! If you’re in need of some lean protein and don’t have time, this is an awesome alternative. Their vegetable dishes are high quality as well. If this place is far from you, check if your local indian restaruants will give you “Chicken Tikka” without the sauce. Here’s what I ate yesterday: Breakfast: Two slices of turkey breast,Continue Reading >>

Healthy Fast Food, CF Palo Alto and Vitamin D…

Here’s what you will be seeing next in the fast food industry.   I had the opportunity to visit Tim Dymmel over at Crossfit Palo Alto yesterday.

After the wod I spent some time chatting with him and I asked him a bit about his Nutrition Lifestyle. I can quote him on this “Proper Nutrition is what keeps me running throughout the day because I don’t get much sleep and amContinue Reading >>

Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too

These little guys are not Paleo but they ARE egg, gluten, nut, and dairy free which makes them a nice cheat cupcake especially if you are highly allergic. I tried out the red velvet ones a few weeks ago and surprisingly they were not too bad. It certainly was not a cupcake from Sprinkles BUT a nice alternative if you want to your feed your craving without killing your digestive track. What makes them even better is they are home baked out of MILPITAS! The executive pastry chef Amanda Macdessi founded this allergy friendly patisserie after her husband was diagnosedContinue Reading >>

AJ’s Blood Work, suprising results!

Getting your blood work done is the best way to measure how the food you eat affects your body. I get mine done every time I go in for a checkup, so far it’s been 3 times J. What’s really cool however is that my doctor puts the results online so I can graph the progress. Check if your doctor can do this, it’s really cool. The graph shows my results done in Feb 2005, August, 2009, and January 2010. My results showed good news, and some not so good. In August, my blood work indicated that my HDL levelsContinue Reading >>
