It’s Saturday in October and you know what that means….


Before I get into more of that, make sure you read all of this post.  I thought that since I was heading to tailgate later today, I would share my thoughts on how you may be able to get away with eating bad every now and then…

Especially on Husker Day Days!

Below, I got 3 KILLER muscle building / fat shredding recipe to share
with you as well…
So, I’m not sure if you follow college football or not but, if you do, you know Saturday’s during this time of the year are GAME DAYS.
In Nebraska, it’s a TRADITION when the Huskers play at home and I often go to the game.  It’s about an hour commute so I try to make it down there as much as possible.
One of the things Nebraska home games are known best for is the tailgating!  Tailgating at a HUSKER game is a great time hanging with friends, eating food, and having a few beers.
You’ve got to get out and live a little bit here and there right?? 

When I go and tailgate, I don’t have any regrets.  I’ll eat the
food I want to eat and have a few drinks and not even feel bad
about it.

The main reason; I’m discipline and I treat myself good during
the week.  Monday thru Friday I’m locked in on my nutrition.  

I don’t stray off course very much and if I do, it’s not by a lot.

If you’re serious at all about getting ripped up and shredded, you’ve
got to do the same.

You can’t have a few cheat days during the week then on the weekends
turn around and eat like total sh*t.

It doesn’t work like that and unfortunately, too many people think
it does…

If you need a guide, you need to follow the 85-90% rule which
means, 85-90% of the time, you’re eating LEAN and CLEAN.

Lean meats, eggs, fruits, nuts, seeds, and an endless amount of

For me, I stick to the Paleo philosophy…

-No grains
-No dairy
-No sugar
-No processed sh*t

Just solid, wholesome sources of lean meats, tons of green veggies, nuts, seeds, and some fruit here and there.
If you’re sticking to that, on the weekends or when ever the other 10-15% of the time is, you can eat how you really want to and include in those “No-No” foods from above..  Just don’t over do it. 
The weekends is when I fit my tailgating meals in 🙂  

Looks like the week can get kind of boring eh?  

I know what you mean and can understand how you feel which is why
I’m going to share 3 of my favorite kickass, Lean and Mean Paleo Recipes
I snagged right out of The Paleo Recipe Book.

I hope they don’t mind for sharing but here they are:

1) Paleo pizza: The “Meatza” (I tried this last night)

The is a special version of your usual pizza developed by fans of
the Paleo diet where ground meat is used to make a crust instead
of wheat flour. The meat crust is pre-baked before the topping
ingredients are added.

You can use whatever toppings you like as with any regular pizza.

I went with a ton of spinach, sliced peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes,
and BACON!  I threw a bit of cheese on there too (I know, I know, not Paleo..)

Here’s the main ingredients:


  • 1 lb lean ground beef;
  • 1 lb ground pork;
  • ¼ cup onion, finely chopped;
  • 1 clove garlic, minced;
  • 1 egg;
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste;
  • 6 slices bacon, cut in 1-inch pieces;
  • ¾ lb button mushrooms, sliced;
  • 1 cup bell peppers, thinly sliced;
  • 1 cup sugar-free tomato sauce;
  • 1 tsp dried oregano;
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste;Here’s the steps for preparation…
1 Preheat your oven to 450 F.
2 In a bowl, mix the ground meat with the onion, garlic, if using.
3 Spread the mixture on a 16-inch pizza pan and bake for 10 minutes.
4 While the crust cooks, heat a frying pan over a medium heat and cook the bacon for about 5 minutes so it’s still a bit soft.
5 Add the mushrooms and continue cooking until they are almost cooked.
6 Add the bell peppers and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
7 Remove the crust from the oven and pour out the juices which can be reserved for other recipes. At this point the crust will have shrunk a bit.
8 Preheat your oven broiler.
9 Spread the tomato sauce evenly over the crust and spread the bacon, mushrooms and bell peppers on top of the sauce. Sprinkle with the oregano.
10 Put the pizza back under the broiler and broil until to top starts to brown.After having this, I will probably never order Domino’s or Pizza Hut again…
2) Bison Meatloaf
I’m a HUGE fan of bison and other wild game meat when I can get my hands on it.  I usually get my Bison from Whole Foods.  Bison is some of the BEST meat you can get! 
The ingredients:
  • 2 cups almond flour;
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk;
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced;
  • ½ cup carrot, grated;
  • ½ cup zucchini, grated;
  • ½ cup onion, grated;
  • 1 lb ground bison;
  • 1 egg;
  • ¼ tsp fresh rosemary, minced;
  • Cooking fat;
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste;
How to prepare:
1 Preheat your oven to 350 F.
2 Place the coconut milk in a bowl with the almond flour.
3 Heat a skillet over a medium heat and cook the zucchini and
onion in the cooking fat until the vegetables start to brown.
4 Set the cooked vegetables in a bowl and pour in the coconut milk
and almond flour mixture. Also add the ground bison, egg and
rosemary, season to taste with salt and pepper and mix everything
well together.
5 Form a loaf in a 4 x 9 inches loaf pan and place in the preheated
oven to cook for about 45 minutes.After it’s done cooking, serve it up and smash!
3) Paleo BLT sandwiches
This is a special bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich made with two  flattened chicken breast halves instead of the bread. I skipped out on the mayo but feel free to use regular stuff.Main Ingredients:
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half;
  • 1 tomato, sliced;
  • 2 slices bacon, cut in half;
  • 2 ½ tbsp homemade mayonnaise or to taste;
  • ½ tbsp fresh dill, chopped;
  • 1 clove garlic, minced;
  • 2 lettuce leaves;
  • Cooking fat;
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste;
Food prep:
1 Prepare the flavored mayonnaise by combining the mayonnaise with
the dill and garlic in a bowl. Season to taste with sea salt and
freshly ground black pepper.
2 Heat a skillet over a medium heat and cook the bacon until nice
and crispy, about 10 minutes.
3 Set aside and pat dry with paper towels.
4 Place the halved chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap
and flatten them with a meat mallet.
5 In the same skillet you used for the bacon and using the rendered  bacon fat, cook the flattened chicken breasts until well cooked, about 4 minutes per side.
6 Remove from the skillet and pat dry with paper towels.
7 Prepare a sandwich by spreading half the flavored mayonnaise on  one of the breast halves, covering with a lettuce leave, 2 bacon pieces and tomato slices. Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
Hmmmmm Hmmmm!
That is a good one!
