500 Mile Guac

Picture this.

Texas man in the middle of a meat fast on taco Tuesday.

Not a pretty picture, eh?

But I wasn't going to allow that ground round crackling on the stove to tempt me so I invented Baked Cauliflower Picante.

At first taste, I melted but after recomposure, I knew what had to be done.

I knew what would elevate this already amazing dish to Olympic proportions.


Combining these 2 awesome dishes into one meal was amazing, you just got to try it.

But first, you need to know how to make it.


  • 2 Avocados
  • Rotel Chili
  • Diced Purple Onions (or Onion Powder)
  • Minced Garlic
  • Lime Juice
  • Pink Rock Salt
  • Cracked Black Pepper


  1. Peel and mash avacados into a serving bowl.
  2. Stir in Rotel, Onions, Garlic, Lime Juice, Salt, and Pepper.
  3. Season to taste.
  4. Chill for 15 minutes.


That's it! It's that simple.... But the taste is divine!

It's a great dish by itself but married with the Baked Cauliflower Picante, this pair would make famous chefs weep with joy.

It was THAT good. It also didn't last long. Even my carnivorous children surrounded me like ravenous wolves to get to it.

The Guac was a dish to walk 500 miles for. The Cauliflower, 500 more. Just don't be the one who walks 100 miles to fall down at my door.

True8 March

Recently I had the honor of joining Josiah Novak's True8 March. I want to share my experiences. But first, Let's back up. There's a super hero origin story in the works which puts the rest into perspective.
100 pounds ago (heavier), I was looking for ways to get my health under control. By chance, I'm came across The Model Health Show by Shawn Stevenson. It changed my life in many ways. Along the journey I was introduced to Larry Hagner. He runs the The Good Dad Project podcast. Another aspect in my life which needed work was my parenting skills. I started following Larry and joined his Dad's Edge group.
It was in that group I discovered Josiah Novak. 
Josiah Now Josiah's words resonated with me. Over the past year, I developed a relationship with health. I could tell he shared many of the same values I discovered. It was inspiring, because I could see myself in him in about a year. Father, friend of the community, passionate about health, fitness, life. We sy…

Crazy Comparison

Last month I was doing an amazing job on keto.
I lowered my weekly average of carbohydrates from the first month. I raised fat up to where my protein level was and eventually surpassed it
It was a great time and I could tell it was working for me.
Little did I know what was going to happen in month 3.
Month 3
For month 3, I decided to trust fat more.
I did that by keeping carbohydrates around 20.Limiting protein to around 70g.And relying on fat to get me through the rest.
I soon realized I was going to need to supplement fat so I decided to do this with Bullet Proofing Coffee and Tea
In the beginning, it was a rocky start. I wasn't so sure I could pull this off. My first Bullet Proofing ended up a failure. I wrote about it here.
But I didn't give up
As a result, I now have two recipes Morning Proof CoffeeOffice Proof Coffee
I also have some interesting pictures to share. 
This is month 2

Notice the calorie restriction?
This is month 3

Note the uptick in calories? 
I'm consuming …

Stairs 2017

In the beginning of 2016, I had the crazy idea to get into shape.  So, since I didn't have any free time nor a place to spend the nonexistent time... I decided walking the stairs was a great idea. Coworkers were doing it, it'll be fun. We'll get to walk and talk, and bond. Maybe I could even make a friend or two! Until I realized I could climb 3 floors without wanting to fall over and pant for air. I was that out of shape.  I was so embarrassed. An Army Veteran, couldn't even scale 3 floors without needing a rest. 
In this post last year I get more into detail about the experience and how I overcame it. I want to say it was quick and easy but it took a lot of work.  But... the work was worth it because now I can do crazy cool things in the same stair well. 
I want to share one with you.
