  1. awesome recipes, i look forward to trying them….but hey i pretty much have chicken for dinner every night, whats a good side dish to have with it? ive been usually having rice with it

  2. @Dillon. Green beans is a great side dish.

    I’m starting a new cycle of p90x this coming week, so my plan for the weekend if clearing out my fridge and freezer of junk and I’ll be taking your grocery lists for ideas of what to get,

    I’m curious what type of supplements (protein, etc) do you take in place of some meals? I have Shakeology, but I was curious about when I should use protein through out the day, or if it’s something that you do EVERY day or a certain number of days during the week? I do my workouts first thing in the morning before breakfast, if that makes a difference?

  4. @Charlie. I like to mix in my whey protein with Shakeology, but I will occasionally take a whey shake in the morning or as a snack as well.

  5. Good post coach. I especially like the pizza thing, I do something similair but with whole grain tortillas. Still, hard to beat cooked salmon or chicken with wild rice and veggies.
