The Sauce Goddess, Jennifer Reynolds and I headed from Stafford, Texas to Lafayette, Louisiana, (Home of the Ragin’ Cajuns), to meet up with Dana Romero for lunch. For those of you that do not know Dana Romero, he is the man in charge of creating the 1st ever Louisiana Hot Sauce Festival. He wanted to show us a good time, treat us for a nice Cajun lunch and get some feedback on the future festival grounds which will kick off on July 19-20, 2014. I have been exchanging messages with Dana for a few months, but I never had met him before. As I told you in the previous parts of my road trip, he volunteered as a salsa judge. Not only that he helped me quite a bit in adding up the judging scores of all 70 entries. With 7 judges, that is 490 scores to tabulate. I was extremely grateful for the help he gave me.
Jen and I each had our own transportation, and once Dana told us where to meet, we set off to meet at PreJeans Restaurant in Lafayette, LA. I let Dana choose my meal, as I wanted to have something Cajun and special. He hit a home run, and it was a dish I am not sure I would’ve ordered reading it from the menu. The dish was called Catfish Grand Chenier, and it one of the best meals I had on my 2 week trip. Here is the description as it is written on the Prejeans’ menu along with a picture of the dish.Read more
See that picture of me. It was taken when I was letting my emotions get the better of me. It happens to each one of us, especially when we are dieting. What do we do when life has a strangle hold on our psyche? It isn’t easy staying on course when you are trying to lose weight and you eat to make yourself feel better. Anyone who has ever been there knows that satisfied feeling is fleeting. A temporary fix much like a drug-induced euphoria. I share some tips on what to do in my new video to avoid emotional eating. Hopefully, you can use this knowledge to your advantage if it happens to you on your diet.Read more

Also learn how I created my spicy garlicky pot roast.Read more
After a stressful month and a 1/2 with so many ups and downs I thought I was a flight of stairs. The vacation I took by car was the detox from my worries and stress that I needed. Being alone in my travels for many of the longer stints allowed me to just veg out. The times I spent with my chilehead brethren was exactly what I needed in this time in my life. I will never forget all that was done for me and the friendships I have forged that will be long-lasting. This trip changed me. In the coming days I will recount the love I felt from this great community on my long chilehead adventure.Read more
I am still doing well in my diet, but not with my exercise routine. Been too busy preparing for my 2 week road trip which kicks off this coming Wednesday. In this video I talk about Quest Nutrition’s low carb high protein bars and their new revolutionary low carb pasta noodles. If you are doing the low carb diet, these are products you will want to have mixed into your diet. I also mention 2 hot sauces as well, The Chesterville Pepper Company & Infuse Brand Hot Sauce. The rest you can hear in my new update. Long as it is, I hope it is informative for those doing the low carb diet with me.Read more
Another week gone by. I didn’t talk about my workout this time. I promised I would hit the gym twice this week, and I did. I will do the same this week as well. I hate it, but it must be part of my diet plan. I also tried to hit the bed earlier during the work week, at 9pm, because I am up at 3am. The only problem I am having is that I wake up a few hours earlier. Not sure why I can’t just get at least 6 hours of sleep like the normal person. I am trying though. So if anyone out there tries to call me after 9pm and I do not pick up, you know why. Anywho, here is the weekly video. If you have Plantar Fasciitis like me, you should listen up. I might just have a solution for your shoes.Read more
