Lean Protein ideas…

27 Sep

While I am a huge fan of the rewards of muscle gain, I am NOT a huge fan of all the work that goes into the nutrition and eating part! But, here I find myself in the middle of a 12 week muscle building regimen and I need to spice up my chicken! I am not a fan of grilling my chicken and then eating it for 5 days. I tend to do a lot of crockpot proteins and then prepare it for a few days and then prep again for the rest of the week, because let’s face it, food is so much better fresh! So, I am wondering if any of you out there have ideas on new ways to cook chicken, or any other lean protein for that matter, and what spices do you use? This week I have been eating a lot of chicken thighs with various spice combinations and lots of oven roasted veggies.  Any fresh and new ideas would be appreciated!

Motivation Monday

Motivation Monday

If you didn’t eat as well as you had hoped or spent a little too much time hanging out on the couch this past weekend, you have a whole week to rededicate! The good thing about Monday’s (Yes there is one positive about manic Mondays 🙂 ) is that you have a clean slate ahead of you. Get out there and get your sweat on! I promise you will not regret it 🙂

Sweet Potato Hash

15 Jul

Image   

I love making a big batch of sweet potato hash for breakfast especially on leg training days. I usually make a big skillet of this and eat half for breakfast and enjoy the other half  with my protein shake after my workout. I love this for heavy training days because I am usually ravishing and this is perfect fuel to get me through the day. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup bell pepper
  • 1 chicken jalapeno sausage, diced
  • 1 sweet potato, cubed
  • Hot sauce (optional)
  • 2 eggs
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Instructions:

  1. Sauté the onion, bell pepper, and sausage. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Place cubed sweet potato in microwave for about 3 minutes to soften.
  3. Add the sweet potato and hot sauce. Cook 4 to 5 minutes or until slightly crispy.
  4. Remove from skillet and set on a plate.
  5. Cook the eggs over medium or fried according to your preference and serve over hash. 
  6. Season with salt and pepper

Makes 2 servings
