Macro-Friendly Breakfast Casserole

Another day, another recipe. This time, I’m bringing you a spin one of my favorite recipes that my mom used to make for Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas: sausage breakfast casserole.

I am swapping our her bread pieces for hash browns, swapping the pork sausage for turkey sausage, and of course, swapping the 1lb of cheese for cheddar cheese powder from Hoosier Hill Farms.

A Preview of the Phalanx Method Trilogy

Greetings, Peers, I am here to unveil my upcoming training manual trilogy: The Phalanx Method. Unlike Pump Dragon, this trilogy is going to be written all at the same time, with each of the phases preparing for and building off the others, to make what I consider to be the most well-rounded athlete.

By using my knowledge of the Hellenistic Period, the Persian & Peloponnesian wars, and the Greek phalanx, as well as using the writings of Herodotus, Thucydides, and Xenophon, I will be using the training methods, warrior mentality and life outlook of an enlisted Greek hoplite to write the first historically-based training program.

The Science Behind GMOs & The Future Of Food

Happy Monday, team! As many of you know, I had the absolute privilege of touring the Monsanto Research & Development facility in St. Louis this past weekend. I have never been in a room with so many individuals who possessed at least one Ph.D. in my life.

Talk about imposter syndrome!

While not in possession of a P.H.D. myself, I was told that I was picked for the tour and roundtable discussion due to my view on bioethics, my sociological views on the subject matter, and the uniqueness of an individual in the world of fitness that accepts GMOs with such open arms.
