I know we always talk about the importance of eating well for improvements in body composition, plus an overall health profile boost, the problem though, is that most clients will say it’s too hard to handle, or just not do it because of convenience. We know who you are. We can tell when you’ve reached the training threshold of ‘big results’, so if nothing is happening, it’s probably because you are putting poison in your body.
I just wanted to send out a quick reminder that eating well doesn’t have to be hard or tedious. The other night I was cooking for my fiancee and I, preparing food for the next day’s feedings. Here is what I put together in 15 minutes or less.
500g of Ground Chicken – $3.53
500g of Frozen “Summer Blend” vegetables – $2.50
500g (a can) of Red Kidney Beans – $0.99
Variety of spices ….negligible
I browned the chicken in a pot, while steaming the entire bag of vetetables at the same time (Fresh vegetables are probably better, but frozen vegetables are still a decent substitute!)…Then I poured the beans in with the chicken and began seasoning it and let it simmer together for 5 minutes. Then I added all of the vegetables and mixed it all together. Voila!
This meal fed 2 people for lunch and a bit of snack the next day on $7.00 and 15 minutes of preparation.
It was all chicken, vegetables, and kidney beans…cheap carbs or dressings.
If I had to add one more thing to it, it would be avocado or nuts for some added healthy fats.
Unfortunately we ate it all before I thought to take a picture. I thought it would be a good reminder though that eating healthy doesn’t always have to be expensive, or time consuming. I find these mixes or stirfrys are the best way to say ‘Let’s just put all these healthy things into a pot or pan and see what happens!’…
NOW GO MAKE A GOOD MEAL!
It’s About Getting Better!
