Chew the meat and spit out the bones

Chew the meat and spit out the bones

Chewing the meat is finding what works for you, whether that’s keto, paleo, vegan cat, carnivore or any combination. So I encourage you to experiment with different diets, find what works and what doesn’t.

The Competition

The Competition

Our Biltong rests on the left side, untroubled by the meats on the right who lie in no particular order. We’ll leave our competitors here unnamed. This should save them any potential embarrassment.

Ain't No Mountain High Enough

Ain't No Mountain High Enough

Conquer a mountain a week and you’ll never feel weak. Bounding up steep terrain is a big bang for your buck activity. It gives you the chance to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and work on your booty.

I try to change things up each time I make my way up a mountain.

The Dowel Stretch

The Dowel Stretch

We’ve expressed our love for stretching before and it’s time to reiterate - being flexible will improve your daily life. Moreover, stretching is relaxing and I find that it helps calm the mind.

One of our top stretches is the dowel stretch.

Tough Love

Tough Love

Those who have mastered the art of self massage know how amazing these things are. The objective is to awkwardly position yourself on the roller so that gravity can massage the hell out of your tight and sore spots.

Foam rolling is not for the faint hearted; you must be able to subject yourself to excruciating pain.

Kettleburger

Barbell Biltong has usually got nothing to do with burgers. That’s set to change this week, because we’re getting prepped for the upcoming Burgers, BBQ and Beers Market in the CBR City.

We decided to celebrate the event by designing our own burger.

Yesterday morning we were in a melodramatic state. Doing double the number of markets this weekend appeared to be a logistical nightmare. “Everything times two! Get out of town!”, gasped Rory as he mustered all his brain power to perform the necessary calculations.

Travel & Train

Travel & Train

Here’s a flashback to last Summer’s camping trip in Murramurang National Park. Laingy is training chinups on the gymnastic rings by the beach. Our trips were filled with adventure, training, relaxing, reading and eating lots of biltong. We’d come home from these long trips feeling great and looking tanned, lean and strong.

The Finer Things in Life

The Finer Things in Life

There's three things in the biltong cave we most enjoy to indulge in.
  1. Stretching. It feels amazing, declutters your mind, develops awareness in ones body and the added flexibility expands ones movement vocabulary.

    Bleed Green

    Bleed Green

    I have never been a big fan of leafy greens, however I’ve slowly come to accept that one of life’s golden rules is to eat them by the bucket load.

    I hack my taste buds by preparing them in a very simple way.

    Platter Pleasures

    Platter Pleasures

    This is the way we impress a guest at the biltong household. They’re generally unimpressed by our lack of furniture so we try to distract them with a big biltong platter.

    Our most recent guest barely ate a thing and left the rest behind for us to feed on. Our day started with the fresh food platter in our wild and relaxing backyard.

    It's Raining Biltong

    It's Raining Biltong

    The wet weather was a welcomed excuse to snuggle in my sleeping bag and eat biltong. Don't judge me, it's better than ice cream 😁.

    Optimal Minimal

    Optimal Minimal

    We’ve just hung another huge amount of juicy steaks. Our systems are getting more and more efficient and so is the consistency of our biltong.

    Our time in the kitchen (and all of our time working on Barbell Biltong for that matter) has been about implementing systems to get tasks done efficiently.

    Gut Health

    Gut Health

    Luke and I have been dabbling with preserved foods for some years now. Our baby of course being Barbell Biltong. But we also love our probiotics (what we’ve nicknamed rotten cupboard food), we ferment Sauerkraut, kefir yogurt and brew a pretty dope kombucha.

    Ice Bin Mandate

    Ice Bin Mandate

    Cold water immersion sucks, but paradoxically I've come to love the experience. I thought about explaining this but instead I champion you to try it yourself.

    I usually opt for cold showers, but here I demonstrate my patented wheelie bin technique* *DO NOT try this at home, this stunt was performed by trained professionals.

    Kosciuszko Delights

    After a good days hike, Barbell Biltong is what I crave the most. Mixing this with some almonds, cashews and goji berries was an orgasmic flavour sensation.
