I really dig simple. I also really enjoy eating food that tastes amazing, AND reaching my goals. So when all three of those babies line up beautifully, you bet your ass I'm happy. Don't get me wrong, I still love spending time in the kitchen whipping up some more time tasking meal, but today we are going to break down my top 5 favorite meal ideas that'll leave your belly happy, reach you closer to your goals and leave you with more time to do life. Basically, they're your no recipe recipes.
Garbage Stir-fry: Pick your protein (chicken, steak, ground beef, ground turkey, fish ect), pick 3 veggies (broccoli, green beans, carrots, onions, mushrooms ect) add some fat (olive oil, coconut oil, grass fed butter), add your favorite seasonings. Start with sautéing your meat, then add your veggies + fat and seasonings. Deli Meat Bowl: 4 oz of organic, nitrate free deli meat (chicken, turkey, ham), 2 raw veggies (my faves are 1 whole red pepper + 1 cup green beans), fat of choice (hummus, avocado, nuts ect). Top with lemon juice + salt and pepper. In my bowl I did turkey breast, red pepper, cucumber, avocado and mustard. Stuffed Sweet Potato: Bake your sweet potato until cooked through. Slice open and fill with: protein of choice (I like shredded chicken OR sucks steak best), add your veggies (mushrooms, onions and sautéed peppers are my favorite) and finally top with some fat (nuts, goat cheese, a little full fat cheese ect). BAS (big ass salad): Start with your base of 3 cups greens (spinach, kale, mixed greens ect), add your protein, add 2-3 veggies cooked or raw, fat of choice (nuts, oils, cheese, avocado ect), top with a simple dressing. Extras: bacon, dried figs/dates/cranberries, seeds, nuts, olives, banana peppers. Veggie Bake: choose 1-2 veggies of choice (I like doing broccoli and carrots together or beets and Brussels sprouts), coat them in olive oil, grass fed butter or coconut oil and bake until golden brown. Serve with rotisserie chicken that you picked up from the store OR slice up some chicken sausage and add that to your roasted veggie bake. Tip: if you're looking to make this a heartier meal OR post workout meal, cut a sweet potato into small chunks and throw in wit your veggies.
Breakfast For Dinner: It's always a fabulous time for breakfast. Always. My go to option here is: two eggs (any style), 2 pieces of bacon/sausage or meat, then cook 1-2 veggies in your bacon grease (because bacon duh) and boom, there you have dinner.
