Healthy Eating

Once I started working out and being focused in the gym, I quickly realized the importance of proper nutrition to recover, build muscle and maintain what I was working so hard for. Everyone needs a different recipe for their individual daily nutrition intake; for me that is a caloric intake of 2500-3000 calories per day, 6 meals per day, and with a macro nutrient breakdown of approximately 50% protein, 25% Carbohydrates and 25% good fats.

Proper nutrition also encompasses the necessity of quality of food. First, it’s best to consume minimal to no processed food. Second, whenever possible, organic, GMO free, grass-fed and free-range are the best options. My wife constantly tells me we can pay more now for the more expensive food or pay much more later,due to poor health.

Favorite Eats
Bart’s Scramble – a typical breakfast
Scramble nine egg whites and one yolk together. Add sautéed spinach, diced, fresh tomato, and 3 oz. of cooked chicken breast. This breakfast keeps me fueled to face the day!

Bart’s Rice Bowl – a quick lunch
Start with cooked brown rice or quinoa. Mix in chopped, cooked asparagus and onion, as well as 8 oz. of your favorite cooked, lean protein. Top with Sriracha sauce for some spice!

Bart’s Salad – a typical dinner
Start with a huge bowl of greens, whatever type you like. Add 8 oz. lean, cooked protein (diced chicken, turkey breast, or ground bison), grated carrot, slivered almonds, goat cheese, and Trader Joe’s Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette. Toss well and enjoy!

Favorite Restaurants Laguna Beach


Carmelitas Kitchen de Mexico
217 Broadway St
Laguna Beach, CA 92651

Carmelitas serves authentic Mexican food; everything is made from scratch daily. One of my go to dishes is actually the Champagne Salad: Grilled salmon, fresh romaine, and avocado. It’s delicious!

230 Forest

230 Forest
230 Forest Avenue
Laguna Beach, CA 92651

230 Forest is California cuisine at its best – they are known for their seafood and steak. I enjoy the Baby Organic Kale and Endive Salad: Citrus, dried cranberries, pickled onion, almonds, pecorino, lemon vinaigrette, and I always add salmon for some protein.

Selanne Steak Tavern

Selanne Steak Tavern
1464 South Coast Hwy.
Laguna Beach, CA 92651

A classic American steak house with amazing ambience in Laguna Beach. You pretty much can’t go wrong, whatever you order. But my favorite entrée is the Filet Mignon, served with chef’s truffle marrow butter and bordelaise.

Favorite Orange County Restaurants

Mastro’s Ocean Club

Mastro’s Ocean Club
8112 East Coast Highway
Newport Beach, CA 92657

I love a good steak, and Mastro’s doesn’t disappoint! Mastro’s is another classic steakhouse in Orange County; my favorite meal to order here is the filet, sautéed asparagus and a classic Martini!

True Food Kitchen

True Food Kitchen
Fashion Island
451 Newport Center Drive
Newport Beach, California 92660

Eating healthy is easy at True Food Kitchen; this health-driven seasonal restaurant is a favorite of mine for its variety of nourishing foods. I will typically order the Seasonal Ingredient Salad; right now it has: asparagus, broccolini, roasted cauliflower, chickpea, pistachio, raisin, manchego, and sicilian vinaigrette. I add grilled salmon for some good protein.

Panini Kabob Grill

Panini Kabob Grill (formerly Panini Café)
26611 Aliso Creek Rd, Aliso Viejo, CA 92656

Panini Kabob Grill has delicious Mediterranean fare made fresh in-house, and they specialize in grilled kabobs. Healthy, delicious and casual, it’s a great choice for a quick lunch or dinner. My usual order is the Romaine Avocado Salad (Romaine Lettuce, Avocado, Cucumber, Tomatoes, Basil& Lime Vinaigrette) plus a chicken kabob and brown rice on the side.
