Delicious and Nutritious Dinner for Less than $15

I struggled a lot in college and my early working years after I graduated with eating healthy.  There were two main reasons for this.  The first was I didn’t have much money and fast unhealthy food was cheaper and more filling (or so I thought).  The second was that healthy food seemed so difficult to make myself at home.  These reasons affected me a lot physically of course, but also mentally, emotionally and financially over the long term.  It was not a fun cycle and it limited me from taking my life to the next level.  How could I live up to my full potential without my physical body operating at optimum levels?

When I finally did some research and learned from people who were eating healthy consistently on a budget I realized I was telling myself stories that weren’t true.  I too could live a healthy, energetic and vital lifestyle even though I didn’t have much financial resources!

I always loved red meat and was thrilled to find out I could pick some up at the store for less than $10 and it could be a meal for two days.  In the past I would go to a restaurant to treat my cravings and spend $20 or more and it usually wasn’t the healthiest option.  As a side note – today I do limit my animal consumption for health, moral and ethical reasons and allow myself to eat animal products based on certain criteria I defined for myself.

The video shows a simple meal I chef up regularly.  It costs less than $15 and serves up four meals.  It is grass fed meat which is usually the only way I go when I eat meat.

Here are the ingredients:

  • Grass fed bison
  • Whole wheat pasta
  • Scallions
  • Roasted pepper sauce
  • Olive oil
  • Tomato sauce
  • Salad
  • Parmesan cheese

My suggestion to you would be to choose a few go to meals you can master that are staples in your diet and you can rotate through for variety.

Bon appetit!

How To Develop Healthy Routines

Do you ever wonder why some people effortlessly have great looking bodies, are strong, have tons of energy and why others bounce from thetrendiest diet/workout programto the next and still cannot get the body they desire?  I used to be caught in that trap and it’s no fun.  I hated feeling sluggish, overweight and insecure about how my body looked.  After reading tons of books on fitness and nutrition and learning from some of the best people in the world I realized it came down to a few simple things.  Fit people have certain routines they follow day in and day out to get the body they want.  It is a lifestyle, not a once in a while workout or diet program.  The video explains more.  Enjoy!

Night Time BioHacking Glasses

At the end of the day my eyes are worn out after looking at screens.  And I still am looking at screens in the evening!  These glasses do the trick for me.  They block out the blue light, ease my eyes from screens and they add a cool night vision tint to everything!

I wear them 2-4 hours before bed so my eyes and body know it is time to start winding down.  They are awesome.  If you want to check them out you can find them here .

If you get them I would love to know how your experience is with them.  Feel free to email me or connect with me on twitter or facebook.  Also if you know anyone who would like to learn about how to enhance their sleep share this with them!

Do you have trouble sleeping at night?  Is your sleep quality not as good as it used to be?  I recently saw Dave Asprey speak at Tony Robbins’ Unleash The Power Within event on the bonus health day and he talked about his biohacks to live a more optimized life physically and mentally.  This was one of them that I decided to experiment with.
