Leading up to my segment on Houston Life, I had two concerns: 1) how the hell am I not going to look like an idiot cooking on live TV; and 2) I will look like an ass if I get on the show and everyone sees that I GAINED weight after 21 days!Read More
So at the halfway mark, I got two things currently on my mind: 1) I finally past the halfway mark of my 30 days; and 2) I gotta look fit for Thursday's segment on Houston Life (Channel 2 KPRC!)Read More
Its game time! KPRC show Houston Life just confirmed my appearance on June 27th! Even though that day will be the 21st day of my 30 day challenge, I am hoping to reach 10 pounds lost by then.Read More
While it's going to be a challenge to lose weight while eating 30 days of PPK, it is even more difficult when life happens and you eat other foods such as crawfish, birthday cake, chinese food and more crawfish!Read More
Lunch: Peri Peri boneless thigh with coconut rice and sauteed mushrooms. $12
Dinner: Curry chicken topped with mango chutney served with cauliflower rice and veggie noodles. $12
The weight has started to come off and I haven't been hungry although I still want to go beastmode on my snacks after 9pm haha.
Keep in mind I do intermittent fasting, so only a double shot of espresso in the morning, at least 16oz of water and just a full lunch and dinner.
Day 2 of my 30 Days of PPK went well!
Lunch: Portuguese beef fajita plate on a bed of cauliflower rice with a side of collard greens. $13
Dinner: Portuguese shrimp plate on a bed of cauliflower rice minus the side dish. $15
Focusing on lower carb meals this first week to get a jumpstart on the weight loss before I cheat a bit this weekend :)
A few people have asked how many calories are in the sauces since I am definitely not skimping on the sauces for each dish and eating them as is. That’s the whole point though! You should be able to eat right and actually enjoy it or it won’t be sustainable. If it’s not sustainable, then it’ll be hard to actually incorporate it into your lifestyle for a long period of time.
Day 1 of my 30 Days of PPK challenge complete!
Lunch: Peri Peri Cornish Hen with veggie noodles. $15
Dinner: Chicken fajita plate with cauliflower rice and collard greens. $12
Calories: dont care :)
For anyone interested in following my 30 Days, my daily routine is made up of:
A double shot of espresso after I wake up
Followed by 16oz. of water
My first meal (lunch) will be at 12pm with my last meal (dinner) no later than 9pm.
If you haven’t realized by now, I do intermittent fasting which basically means I only eat between 12pm and 9pm, and eat two meals a day with some snacks sprinkled in from time to time.

For those who haven’t been, Peli Peli Kitchen is the fast casual version of our popular fine dining concept: Peli Peli!
Originally created with Chef Paul Friedman, Peli Peli Kitchen aka “PPK” has been featured on the Food Network and CNBC’s Restaurant Startup and was Eater Houston’s Fast Casual Concept of 2017. Under new chef Ryan “Chef Rhyno” Stewart, the menu highlights authentic peri peri chicken made famous by Nando’s Peri Peri along with comfort foods such as burgers, wings and tacos. Our peri peri sauces: The Blitz, Peri Peri, Green Mamba, BBQ and Lemon Butter, bring additional flavor to every dish.
I like to think Peli Peli Kitchen is the People’s restaurant because our menu is made up of so many different cultures and influences from around the world. To me, it’s this diversity that makes South Africa so amazing and unique - just like Houston!
