A couple of years ago I discovered my power food.  That thing that I eat during the day that gives me energy, the thing that makes my lifts that evening powerful, precise, quick, and right on target! I often hit my personal records or even make new ones when I eat it! 


My power food is tuna and avocado! I love it! simple yet satisfying and keeps me going all day.  I usually have some kind of salad on the side, or mix the tuna and avocado into a salad, or spread it on slices of cucumber, pepper, etc. 

I’ve even done this with it:

(Tuna and Avocado Nori Roll with cucumber, broccoli slaw, orange pepper)
It took a couple of tries to figure out how to roll this, but having worked at the Pita Pit as a poor university student helped in my understanding of constructing a tight roll! 

I know it sounds a little strange but give it a try! I swear its delicious and I’ve converted at least a couple of people to eating this instead of regular old tuna salad.


On another note, in my continuing efforts to be more prepared food-wise for the week, last night I made my go-to quick meal, sausage with whatever veggies are around (tonight was mushrooms and sauerkraut), and prepared a big pot of chili.



I didn’t use a recipe, I just kind of threw a bunch of stuff in the pot and simmered it down.  I took some inspiration from online and went for it.  This pot has the following in it:

  • 1lb of ground beef
  • 1lb of ground lamb
  • 2 cans of diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup or so of chili powder
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 red pepper

Simmered down until it looked kind of thick and let it sit until it cooled down and threw in the fridge.  This will be dinner tonight and lunch tomorrow.  If we’re sick of it by Wednesday night I’ll throw the rest in the freezer for another day!


I’ve gotten some really nice compliments about the blog and so I just want to thank everyone who takes the time to read this and it’s really awesome to know that a few of you get a little inspiration from what I’ve been eating! Keep coming back! I’ll try to keep it interesting!
