It’s a snack. It’s a meal. And it goes great with chips. There are few options that are both as healthy and flavorful as ceviche.

The Fitness Divide

I almost punched someone in the gym. And in some ways I’m upset I didn’t. Only doing so would have only made one of the more recent fitness trends even worse. I was in the gym for a weekend lift. The gym was a little busier than usual, but typical for the time of day.…… More

Should Your Workout Kick Your Ass?

If you were to ask me to choose the one thing most people could improve in the gym my answer would be “Intensity.” Problem is, when I suggest workouts need to be harder, most interpret that as meaning more sets, reps, or hours in the gym. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Intensity doesn’t hinge…… More

High Protein Healthier Nachos

When you think nachos, the last thing that probably comes to mind is “healthy.” Maybe it’s the chips, the cheese, the sour cream, and more topping than you can imagine. (Did I mention the cheese?) But nachos don’t have to be a bad snack. In fact, they can be a protein loaded meal, if you…… More

Jalapeno and Goat Cheese Omelet

If you search “Adam Bornstein” in Google, one of the top suggested searches is “eggs.” For most humans that might seem odd. But considering that I’m known for my love of all things scrambles, omelets, and benedict, it should really come as no surprise. After all, I’m the same guy who once ate 3 eggs…… More

In the pantheon of great all-purpose recipes, chili has to rank in the Top 10. It works as lunch, dinner, a snack, a side, and has so many variations that there’s something for everyone.
