Chili for Breakfast

Breakfast Chili

Contrary to the title, this chili isn’t only for breakfast. Instead, it just refers to amping up your usual bowl by adding 1-3 eggs to your bowl. For lunch or dinner, the added protein helps prep or recover after a workout. As a breakfast, the beans in the chili, along with the eggs and beef, […]

Overnight Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Here’s another ridiculously easy, delicious, healthy recipe for y0u guys. It’s oatmeal like your momma made, but easier, better and just as healthy. It’s as simple as mixing steel cut oats (the best kind), with apples, cinnamon (you know how healthy cinnamon is!), water, sugar and salt. Turn your crockpot on, go to bed, stir, […]

Chipotle Sweet Potato Hash with Poached Eggs

This is about as gourmet as my cooking skills get, folks. This recipe involves more prep work than most other recipes, but the results are, in a word, astounding. The wife created this for dinner one night, and I didn’t really have high expectations. It sounded weird. And then I tried it. And as I […]

Cheesy Bacon Eggs on the Go

Bacon? Check. Eggs? Check. Cheese? Check. There’s little else you can want in a breakfast for strength athletes. Borrow some cupcake tins from your wife, neighbor, or mom and you can make breakfast to go for the whole week. Any girly feeling you have while making these will disappear as soon as you taste the […]
