There are a tremendous amount of people in my family with food allergies. When everyone gets together it's a histamine buffet of random allergies that include but are not limited to eggs, dairy, carrots, and peaches.
3 ripe bananas
2 c. rolled oats
1/3 c. applesauce
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tbsp. ground flax
1/2 c. dried cherries or raisins (can use any dried fruit combo)
Step 1) Smash and mash bananas, add ingredients.
Step 2) Form into cookies, arrange on a non stick cooking sheet.
Step 3) Sprinkle with cinnamon and raw organic sugar (optional, I feel it's sweet enough without it) and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

- Get sport specific - If you are sucking wind at the back nine, perhaps slow paced cardio with a brief interval of higher intensity cardio every 5 minutes or so will help you out.
- Keep true to your swing - Muscle memory is key for athletic perfection. If your schedule does not allow for you to travel in the name of golf, then find an indoor facility or commit to at least a few hours a week of practice swings. This way you are not neglecting the constant repetitions needed to achieve an optimal swing.
- Always focus on nutrition - Regardless of the sport you are playing, you need to fuel your body efficiently. Since Golf is mostly mental (if you are healthy enough to play that is) and your mind is attached to your body, then all the more reason to focus on nutrition.

I have been making this dish since I was 17, and it has most likely been on every meal plan I have ever written. I call it culinary excellence, others call it getting your macros in. Whatever you call it, it's an easy and balanced bulk meal prep option.
I set this recipe for one pound of ground meat but feel free to double or triple the ingredients (if you have a large enough pot)
1/8 Cup EVOO or Avocado Oil
3 Cloves of Garlic
Pink Himalayan Salt
1lb Ground Turkey or Meat of choice
2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder
Black Pepper and Red Pepper Flakes Optional
16 oz of Purred Tomato, mild or hot salsa (your choice)
Step 1) Sauté one very large finely chopped onion in avocado oil or EVOO
Step 2) Add 3 cloves of crushed and rough chopped garlic (not too small)
Step 3) Add a teaspoon of pink salt and allow the onion to cook until translucent
Step 4) Add 1 lb of ground meat, adding 2 teaspoons of garlic powder directly to the meat (No salt added) ( ground black pepper and red pepper flakes if you like some spice) allow meat to cook thoroughly
Step 5) Add 2 full cups of fresh veggies of choice and an Organic can of black beans and sauté for 6 minutes
Step 6) Add 16 oz of Pureed Tomato for Mild or 16 oz of Mild Salsa For Medium Spice or 16 oz of Level Danger Zone Salsa if you are like me :) and sauté for 5 additional minutes
Step 7) Serve with brown rice or in lettuce wraps, and with hot sauce or not. Either way this is a perfectly balanced comfort food meal prep option.

For those of you who do not have "time" for breakfast this entire recipe takes 10 minutes and can be stored in your freezer for up to 3 months (1 week once thawed)
Comfort Food: Bagels, Cream Cheese, and Lox -
Better Alternative: Veggie Loaded Lox Lettuce Wrap
Obviously omitting the bagel and replacing it with lettuce is a major improvement already but adding some micro nutrients from raw veggies makes it a super breakfast option.
-Lettuce as the Wrap
-Lox of Choice
-Organic Cream Cheese (optional)
-Sliced Tomato - Red Onion - Cucumber - Olives - Jalapeno
Comfort Food: French Fries
Better Alternative: Cut some Potatos and bake them!!!
You can easily get the crunch your looking for by baking a cut potato.
Step One - Peel and cut your potato to your desired fry size
Step Two - Add your cut Potato and 1/8 cup of Avocado oil per potato to a giant zip lock bag
Step Three - Shake vigorously making sure the bag is completely closed ;)
Step Four - Blast your oven to 450 or higher (preheat)
Step Five - Put the Potatoes on a baking sheet making sure they are not overlapping each other
Step Six - (Optional) - My grandmother always added diced onion to this and it definitely adds some flavor
Step Seven - Bake until at its desired crispness (keep an eye on it and be patient)
Step Eight - Enjoy responsibly
Comfort Food: Spaghetti & Meatballs
Better Alternative: Zucchini Noodles and Not Your Mothers Meatballs
If you regularly check Trainer Joe's Blog posts you may have already seen these two recipes separately. Together they are an unstoppable comfort combination!

Spaghetti & Meatballs
1 - You are too strict, A cheat meal gives your metabolism a boast when done properly. Notice I said Cheat Meal and not Cheat Day!!!
2 - You do not mix it up enough. Your workouts are flat and you are not maximizing muscle confusion in a strategic way. AKA your workouts are boring and like a photo copy of a photo copy of a photo copy, they are becoming less and less effective.
3 - You do not push though tough days. If you only do things on perfect days, you will never get anything done. This means you think you're staying consistent, training once or twice per week. When you should be training almost every other day to get where you want to go.
1 - You have survived 100% of the days that you have been alive! - Good job keep that up!
2 - The distance between your dreams and reality is called action! - Get on it everyday!
3 - The moment that you decide not to give up on your dream, is the same moment that your dream becomes a reality - Don't give up!
