My Daily Meals

A few people asked what I eat every day. I think that what I eat is of minor interest, but maybe the reasoning behind it might be more valuable.

First the what. My friend Dick Talens suggested that I do intermittent fasting, which means that I eat during only an eight hour period each day. There's some compelling evidence that this is good for longevity, but not enough that I can say for sure that it's true. I was attracted to the diet because it meant that I could spend less time eating each day.

When I first wake up, I drink green tea. My staple is Green Ecstasy from Samovar, but sometimes I have something else just to mix it up.

The beginning of my eating period is two pm. I make three open face sandwiches consisting of the following: one piece of ezekiel seed bread, hazelnut almond butter, a small handful of walnuts, one third of a banana, and a lot of chia seeds. Sometimes I have some nice organic berries to put on top.

6 Rules to Live By While Traveling

On Travel 'n' Wellness

I recently read a post on zenhabits.net, detailing 12 rules fitness expert Craig Ballantyne lives his life by. I figured this is a great topic to tackle for Travel n' Wellness by answering the question: "What wellness rules do I live by while traveling?"

Before delving into my rules, I'd like to separate myself from Ballantyne and the manner in which he laid out his rules.

In Ballantyne's introduction, he gives the example of vegetarians and how they're dogmatically committed to following a certain set of protocols. Vegetarians, he says, no matter the circumstance, will not eat meat. They've created a unique world perspective that includes a strong commitment to not eat the flesh of any living organism. This world perspective enables them to entertain guilt-free behavior congruent with personal goals.

Let me make something clear: Dogmatism should not be the goal in following any rules. When you follow something dogmatically, you often do so in the face of conflicting logical evidence.
