Some June & July Food Porn

Josh PalmerNutrition

Thought I’d just throw up a quick post with some of the munchies I’ve cooked up over the last couple of months. This blog is as much food as it is anything else so why not?! First up: I cooked dinner for my Girlfriends parents when I was over in New Jersey recently. Needed something that was relatively straightforward but … Read More

Food Porn – Lemon & Chia Gluten/Dairy Free Muffins

Josh PalmerNutrition

Since I’m heading off to the Charity Open Mat at Leicester Shootfighters tomorrow, I thought I’d whip something up for the impromptu Paleo bake-off that often takes place. It’s kind of fitting, since I’ve gone back to being completely gluten free for the last month and actually almost dairy free by accident. Since I’d been lamenting my knee injury over … Read More

Food Porn – Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Josh PalmerKnowledge Is Power, Nutrition

Last week I made a trip to Aussie BBQ in Dublin with SBG Ireland coach John Kavanagh (more on that trip to follow). One of the excellent BBQ items on offer was pulled pork…proper pulled pork.

Beast Mode Sandwich Binge – The Shooter

Josh PalmerNutrition

I’d been planning this little binge for about 3 or 4 weeks for straight after my recent Amateur MMA bout in Norwich. Every so often I make some pretty epic food concoctions and for some reason this was what I really wanted right there and then. I almost never eat bread anymore so that may have had something to do … Read More

My Latest Training Revelation

Josh PalmerNutrition, Random Thoughts, TrainingLeave a Comment

I’m pretty certain that over the last couple of months: I’ve been a complete wimp. I actually paid a well regarded professional (Andy Morgan at www.rippedbody.jp) to sort my nutrition out following a www.leangains.com approach. I had a pretty reasonable idea of what I’d need to do to implement the protocol anyway but I wanted his expertise and tracking. I … Read More

Food Porn – March 2013

Josh PalmerNutritionLeave a Comment

Bit of a slow month and I’m sorry to say I messed about a lot here! I finished my run of Leangains with Andy Morgan from www.rippedbody.jp and for some bizarre reason thought I’d go back to doing my own thing…despite adding weight to all of my lifts and generally feeling better. Not smart. I did a short run of … Read More
