A Post Workout Meal

I have been on a new workout plan for the last 3 days, and my body feels tired and sore, it is time for a recovery break before the next session but mostly a good recovery meal. I am always researching for a way to ease the meal prep, but I also like my food to be tasty, so that comes in first place. I have been experimenting a lot of new recipes, and different cooking methods in the last couple of days, and today I want to share with you all a 40 minutes preparation meal. The good thing about this, is also that I got some leftover and I’m done for tomorrow’s meals!

What you need is:

  •  6/7 Chicken Breast
  • Fresh Asparragus
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Cayenne Pepper
  •  Black Pepper
  • Sweet & Spicy Chicken Rub or Anything of your choice
  • Salt

The first thing I do is to cut into pieces the chicken breast and put it in a bowl,once is done I add the marinade, salt, pepper, and olive oil and mix it all. Now, is the time to prepare two different oven tray one with foil paper for the chicken and the other one with baking paper for the asparagus. Wash and clean the asparagus and place one by one in the tray, add some olive oil, salt, cayenne pepper and mix it.

Bake it all in the oven for 25 minutes at 400°F, halfway through I like to turn the asparagus and before the end of the 25 minutes I broil for 2/3 minutes, but this last step is entirely up to you.

In the end, I have added some rice as my primary source of carbs, I hope you guys will give a try and enjoy as much as I do.

As usual, I am interested to know what you think? Do you have another easy way to meal prep? How you like to marinade the chicken (So I will give a try)?  Let me know in the comment.

Full Day of Eating on Cutting Diet.

I have been talking about nutrition and clean eating for a long time now, but I have never shown my day what looks like.

There are so many combinations to make in the kitchen, creativity is all you need. By now and if you have read my about me page, you know that I am Italian and I always loved my Mediterranean food and always had creativity in the kitchen.

Breakfast time is here, Wow, Incredible! Since teenager age I remember that the breakfast was not for me, every single person I was meeting was telling how much important was the breakfast, but me I was rejecting. In my family, the breakfast was not an essential meal my mum and dad the only thing they were having was their expresso, how I would have ever learned to have a proper start of the day? Now, I wish the breakfast would never end. This is how my day starts!

  • Coffee
  • 2 Slices Whole Wheat Bread
  • Lean Ground Beef and Sweet Pepper

Breakfast

After breakfast and during my off days at work I will wait one hour or so and head to the gym, the workout with the cardio takes approximately 2 hours and before I reach back home is lunch time. So this is my today’s Lunch!

  • Broccoli
  • Shrimps
  • Avocado

Of course, I like to make my food a little tastier so, I have used a tsp of Extra Vergine Olive Oil, Parsley, Garlic, Cayenne Pepper and Paprika.

Lunch

The afternoon begins and I always feel like I have to much to do but never enough time. However, when the time arrives I am always ready for my snack.

  • Fat-Free Greek Yogurt & Blueberries

Yougurt&Bluberries

That’s the time when depending on what you like to eat and planning to do for the dinner usually all the preparation starts. Last night, for instance, I was looking to have some Salmon and here we go to dinner time.

  • Salmon
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Brussel Sprouts

And of course Extra Vergine Olive Oil, Parsley, Garlic, Cayenne Pepper and Paprika.

Dinner

Before bedtime, my last meal of the day is a Protein Shake, nothing enthusiastic here but I really love SYNTHA-6 EDGE, Chocolate Milkshake Flavor.

Shake#2

Hope you guys enjoyed this post. What is the meal you liked the most? What is the picture you liked more? I look forward to seeing all your comment and likes and I promise I will do more posts like this and also get better on the pictures.

Protein Promo – Chococlate Peanut Butter

Why did I join Yellowstone’s team as an athlete? Well, look at their protein flavours! Okay, just kidding. I decided to join their team because they take all of the clutter out of the industry.

Protein Promo

They don’t claim that their protein is going to make you lose 20lbs in 2 days or that it will get you a shredded body in 3 days. However, their protein is 100% Whey and their flavours are the best out of any other ones on the market. It is the cleanest protein and most effective. No fillers, no junk ingredients. This protein has 25g of protein and little to no fat/carbs. On top of that, its safe for lactose intolerant people. Not only that, but I can’t stress how amazing these flavours are. This Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup flavour taste exactly like the Reese’s candy. This will always be my go to protein from now on. I really encourage all my friends, family and followers to try this product and all of their other products. This company is fixing what’s wrong with the fitness industry! I strongly encourage you to try these products! If you do, please use my code for a discount! Their website is YellowstoneNutra.com
