Lemon herb grilled chicken

February 16, 2013 Leave a comment

We’re all busy so this is a quick and easy weekday meal.

No marinating required. Just drizzle lemon juice over the chicken breast, smooth herbs over the surface and grill on both sides.

Serve with brown rice, green vegetables like broccoli or beans or salad.


Post workout recovery food

November 24, 2012 1 comment

Its not enough just to workout, your body needs the right nutrition to make the most out of the effort you just put in.

Post-workout snacks restore energy and rebuild muscle, too!

You need to eat them within two hours of exercise.

These protein packed recipes and snacks help repair the muscles you’ve just used.

Protein pancakes: mix 4 egg whites, ½ cup rolled oats, ½ cup low fat cottage cheese, 1/8 teaspoon baking powder, and ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract. Cook on preheated griddle (medium low heat) until it bubbles, then flip and cook another 30-60 seconds. Top with fresh berries or sliced banana.

Chunky Monkey shake: Monkey around with 1 medium banana, 1 tablespoon peanut butter, and 1 cup low-fat chocolate milk blended with ice.

Double Trouble shake: To lengthen the delivery time of nutrients to your muscles, combine ½ scoop of whey protein blended with ½ scoop slower-digesting casein protein, plus a handful of your favorite fresh or frozen fruit.

Bananarama: One medium sliced banana with 1 cup low fat milk — it doesn’t get any easier than this!
