About me

About TerencioHello Everyone,  I am Terencio and me and my wife have worked hard at creating simple and effective meals to help us through our daily routines.  It wasn’t always this way.

In 2007 I ate whatever I wanted to eat without thinking about the consequences of the quality or the quantity.  Everything changed when I decided to join a flag football league for a little competition, and let me tell you that there was nothing competitive about the nature of my overall health when trying to keep up with those guys.  It seemed that I was out of touch with my health and something had to changed.

Working out and getting back in shape was my # 1 priority!  Over the next 6 months I went from being a 6 foot tall 217 pound guy to a Lean & Mean 6 foot tall 178!  Wow!!! What a difference that hard work and determination can make I thought…

At this point, I changed my workout routine from all cardio to a strict muscle building routine that bulked me up over the years to about 207 pounds.  I would be lying if this was an easy task, but by no means that after working all day, coming home to 3 kids ( 6, 13, & 19-in college) and getting dinner prepared and heading to the gym, coming home and getting ready to do it all again the next day.  Let me take a breather for a second, there is an incredible chance that your going through an similar scenario and would like some clarity on ways to improve.  That is why I created this site.  What has become easy is the daily commitment to create healthy meals for my family while working out with my wife in the evening.  Our oldest daughter just finished her freshman year at Kansas University (KU), our second in line will be starting high school (9th grade) and last but not least the little guy in the picture to the right just finished kinder.

I’m still working on the site to get it up and running, if you have any questions feel free to reach out!

  • Good afternoon Terencio,

    Good for you! To stick to your goal is not easy but your story will show the readers of your website that it is possible. That is a good idea to make this website for the busy working person who often, because of lack of time, does not think what they put into their mouth. Nowadays the temptation of buying man-made food is big, it is quick, convenient but not the healthiest choice. These foods are full of additives, sugars or chemical sweeteners which can even make you fat. Most of the time unhealthy fats are used. In general, you are better off trying to eat things as Mother Nature intended, as much as possible in its natural state. I wish you good luck with your site, it comes handy for the modern person who needs to be informed.

    Regards, Taetske

    • Thank you Taetske for your insight and words of encouragement. I agree with you 100% on these processed foods. There is never a need to reach for a box meal, meals from scratch are just as easy!
