They always look at me strange whenever I order: “I’ll have a side of black beans; “A side of pico de gallo...
“and a side habonero sauce.”
Every time I order they look at me sideways, like I’m from another planet.
Sometimes the staff thinks I’m messin’ with them —a Mystery Shopper perhaps.
I totally and completely understand.
I get it.
You get so accustomed, day after day, to droves of people ordering chicken-this, pork-that, and steak blankety-blank that the fella who orders simple black beans and pico de gallo — and usually backpacks his own avocado and lime — makes for a strange and unusual sight indeed.
A different dude, in every way.
Not intentionally so.
And hey, in this case taking the Road Less Travelled saved me $4 or $5 bucks, so now I’m learning how to live leaner and make my money go farther, while at the same time eating mindfully and consciously.
“Are you vegan” they often ask.
No, I’m not.
98, 99 %, but not all the way.
But plantbased for sure. Low carb, for sure.
I got nothing but love for my meat-lovin’ brothers and sisters, but I will say this:
The typical American eats 10 ounces of meat per day.
That much meat — forking down 220 pounds or so per year — strikes me as a terrible idea.

So... where do I start. It’s actually pretty funny because 10 years ago today, June 15th 2009 I took my first BJJ class. I guess that you could say that the rest is history. When I first started training, I didn’t get to train with a black belt until I was a blue belt, a year and a half into training, but would constantly get smashed by @gothamcityfinest and @baby_bulk_mad_jap. But, because of @budnik_mike, I was able to meet master @renatotavares1, and best friend @atomic_flea, along with so many more people, I don’t have enough room to name. .
Jiu Jitsu is not just a martial art, but a way a life. BJJ has changed my life for the better and has made me a better person. Because of this amazing art, I have had the honor of meeting some pretty amazing people and some of my closest friends. .
They say that achieving the rank of black belt is not the end goal, but just the beginning of the journey. I’m ready to begin my journey. .
