Dateline: October…. I’m going to do my duty today to help you avoid the candy dish and other Halloween temptations this month by giving you 8 delicious healthy alternatives, suitable for the season. Best part: they’re all high in protein too, so they fit perfectly into the Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle lifestyle!
Spanish rice can be super simple and is often served as a side dish, but when you give it the treatment and also add protein, it becomes a hearty main course. In this case, the protein is extra lean ground beef. Ground turkey works too. If you're vegetarian, try the meat substitute of your choice that mimics beef. This is a beef, rice and vegetable skillet - a complete meal - with some unique ingredients to make it different.
Introducing Tom Venuto's turkey burgers! The first time I ever made a batch of these tasty nutritious turkey (TNT) burgers, I immediately took one to my training partner and another to a non-bodybuilder friend for taste testing. They were both blown away! My training partner said, No way! These taste too good to be diet food! My other friend had a similar reaction: "Feels like I'm cheating!" Yep, they're that good!
Here it is - the most popular, most famous Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle recipe of all time: High Protein Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Pancakes! These pancakes are delicious, super easy to make and also 100% portable, making this the ultimate take-it-with-you travel meal. Take them with you on road tips, on hikes, on a plane, or even into class and you'll have your lean protein and healthy carbs right at your fingertips!
This chicken skillet is prepared a lot like a stir-fry, only it's not Asian - it's a delicious honey mustard with sweet and spicy notes. This dish is simple to make - you can't mess it up even if you change quantities of chicken or veggies, so it's great for a quick meal any night of the week. It's also a great way to batch cook flavorful protein for meal prep, while getting your veggies in too.
Who doesn't love fajitas? Not many, I figure. They're a favorite in Mexican restaurants, but you can make them healthier at home, controlling the fat and salt if you choose, and they are just as tasty! They're also versatile, because you can enjoy the veggies and protein for very low carb, or give yourself the amount of carbs you want by serving with whole grain tortillas, or rice. Super simple and fast too!
Here's a classic way to make chicken breast taste great - balsamic marinade with Italian seasoning. The recipe is simple and the prep and grilling is fast. If you wanted an even simpler and faster shortcut, you could marinate your chicken with balsamic or Italian dressing, but the nice thing about making your own marinades is you control the ingredients and therefore the taste (including salt content) and the macros. Try making this marinade from scratch - you won't regret it
The blueberry bliss protein smoothie made the top 20 member favorite recipes ranking recently. That's surprising, considering all the other flavors we have: chocolate peanut butter, strawberry slush, and many more in the Meal Planning software. But the members voted, and this slipped into the top bunch. Made with frozen fruit, this is great for hot days, and it's great for any day of the year you need more protein (40g). It's also thick and filling and amazingly satisfying for only 274 calories..
Potatoes are not fattening. In fact, they have the highest rank on the satiety index, which means they make you feel fuller than other foods. The reason mashed potatoes are rightfully shunned by the health and fitness conscious is because of how they're traditionally prepared with full-fat dairy, cream and loads of butter (gravy too! Or cheese!) But with a few ingredient changes, this classic comfort food is not only fantastic on holidays like Thanksgiving, it can also become a light and healthy weekly staple.
