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. Take kale, for instance. I’ll rip the leaves off the kale and place them in a large pot. Then, with my bare hands, I’ll smother these leaves with lemon juice and olive oil, making sure no leaf goes untouched. Finally, I’ll transport these leaves into an airtight container layered with paper towels, and store this container in the fridge. Bam! Bob’s your uncle.
You now have your kale for the week, yet it is no longer that bitter rubbish, but instead a food you can at least be indifferent about. Add a handful to every meal, and reap the rewards of the mass vitamins and minerals you’ll absorb. My personal favourite foods to mix with my leafy greens are avocado, baked pumpkin, walnuts, and, of course, Barbell Biltong.
Choose the exercise you want to get stronger at and set standards you need to hit for a rep of that exercise to count. The key to progressing using GtG is to avoid the burn associated with muscular fatigue and treat your next rep as though it will be the best one you’ve ever done. To do this go into each set completely fresh and only perform submaximal sets
Hell, the list of inconveniences never ends, yet these inconveniences help restore a healthy appreciation for your modern day luxuries. Once you've settled in, you'll likely find that there is something quite freeing about the limitations that camping imposes on you.
Gram for gram, and calorie for calorie liver is the most nutrient dense food you can find. It truly knocks muscle meats out of the park in every vitamin and mineral, and is abundant in many essential nutrients that are either scarce or non-existent in plant foods.
