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

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 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

I may have splurged a tad more than I was should have this month! But I got some great meat stocks in as you will see and with the 6 Nations starting, took up a new weekend activity of ‘Rib-eyes & Rugby’. Let’s start with an item that makes all things better: steak! Three decent rib-eyes. Dry brine in my … Read More

Josh PalmerNutrition1 Comment

So here’s my ‘Food Porn’ update for January 2013! I completely succumbed to buying a few new gadgets over the past thirty days. Stovetop smoke, japanese mandolin, new oven proof frying pans – the list goes on! Almost everything I’ve been eating is fairly well adherent to the leangains system I’ve been following.

No Arguments – Blogs Are Awesome

Josh PalmerKnowledge Is Power, Nutrition, Random Thoughts, TrainingLeave a Comment

People have a lot of varying views on the value of blogs – particularly in the nutrition and training realm where there seem to be so many conflicting ideals not to mention that dreaded over-bearing shadow: conventional wisdom! I know some who think everything not printed in a text book is just ‘Broscience’ and haven’t quite accepted that a lot … Read More
