Man Food ~ Eat Like a Man ~ The Stylista

If the picture of all this meat makes you happy, you are probably a man, or a woman with a really nice grill.

To be lean you must eat lean, choose lightly marbled cuts of meat and make use of marinades for a juicy steak every time.

Esquire touts this as "The Only Book You WIll Ever Need"
and they have a really fun blog.  Here 

DIY Protein Bars from Elana's Pantry

This recipe was adapted from one by Pam Vagnieres‘ in an article called Make Your Own Protein Bars that ran last year in my local newspaper The Daily Camera.  These high protein, gluten free power bars are easy to make and remind me of a Lärabar, though these are super fresh since they’re homemade, and they’re also not quite as sweet.
My boys and their friends loved these bars and gobbled them up during spring break, when our house was boys central.
Chocolate Cranberry Power Bars

  5. ½ cup dried cranberries (you can add more if you like)
