I love lamb.
This is dumb simple to make too.
-1 rack o’ lamb chops
-1 TSP of rosemary
-1/2 TSP of paprika
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
- Sear the lamb chops for 3 minutes each side
- Sprinkle the spices on the lamb chops
- Place in the oven for 15 minutes
- Let rest for 10-15 minutes before eating
This is another meal that takes about five minutes to cook.
Start by adding the broccoli to the pan with the coconut oil on high heat.
Once the broccoli is almost cooked (about 80% dark green), cut the flounder into quarters and add to the pan.
Turn the heat down and cook until all of the flounder is flakey.
-1lb of flounder
-2 heads of broccoli
-2 TSP of coconut oil
-1 TSP of chili powder
I stole most of this recipe from the Food Network Website here: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/aaron-mccargo-jr/simple-roasted-pork-shoulder-recipe/index.html
I got the meat from my buddy Mike, who killed this little piggy himself. Legit!
I changed it a little bit just in the seasoning.
-1 TSP of Cumin
-2 TSP of Sea Salt
-1 TSP of Aleppo Pepper
-1 TSP of Garlic
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Using a pastry brush, spread the mixture all over the pork shoulder.
Set the meat on a rack set into a roasting pan. Roast for 20 minutes, and then reduce the heat to 325 degrees F. Continue to cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the shoulder reads 185 degrees F, about 4 hours. Remove the pork from the oven and let stand until cool enough to handle, about 30 minutes.
Easy to make and delicious.

This past weekend Jon and Jessica North made the trip down to Columbus, GA to put on a FREE Attitude Nation Certification for active duty Soldiers. In the two days since, I’ve been overwhelmed with the amount of positive feedback that I’ve received from the other attendees of the cert.
A little back story before I get into the meat and potatoes of the cert.
I am an avid listener of Weightlifting Talk. Partly because I’m a dork and partly because its a damn entertaining show. A few months ago I was listening to Jon talk to Donny Shankle on one of his famous rants and he mentioned that he wanted to go put on a cert for the Troops.
I immediately called him on it via twitter and true to his word 40 Soldiers (and one newly minted former Soldier) had a full day of fun, Superman pulls, Arched Angles, and Personal Records.
For those of you who don’t know or without any military background, Fort Benning is the home of the Rangers, the Infantry, and recently the Armor. This means that everyone in the Army who legitimately kills terrorists for a living does there fair share of time in the land that god forgot.
A lot of time, these support the Troops tours and TV commercials during football games only show POGs (people other than grunts) who get relatively easy deployments in well developed bases with salsa nights and hot chow. By coming to Benning, Jon was training the folks who play real life Call of Duty.
There are a lot of folks out there who put a lot of lip service into supporting the military, but kudos to Jon and Jessica for being true to their word and coming down for the Soldiers.
I’ve done my fair share of certifications and work shops in my day, but I can honestly say that this one had more energy and laughs than any one that I can remember.
Even if you’ve heard some of Jon’s better stories on the podcast before, the lecture portion was excellent.
He and Jess did a great job explaining the technical aspects of the lifts and coaching such a large group. You could tell from the rapid improvement in everyone’s technique and the tons of PR’s that these guys know what they’re doing.
I personally hit a 20lb PR on my clean and felt a lot faster in the snatch.
If you get the chance, go find yourself an Attitude Nation Certification. Even if you are set in your technique ways, what Jon has to say about technique and his discovery of the Superman Pull and Arched Angle is more then just a gimmicky name.
I had a great time at the Certification and on behalf of the active duty guys and gals that were there and the entire CrossFit Inception and Sacrifice family want to thank Jon and Jessica for the great time this past weekend.
