My go-to meal…

I would consider myself a “volume eater”…I need to eat A LOT of food to feel satisfied.  This is one of my favorite go-to meals at the moment.  I pair a lean protein, some healthy satiating fats and tons of nutrient dense, fibrous veggies that fill me up on relatively few calories…


For this particular meal I used…

  • a bed of baby spinach
  • cucumber and yellow squash
  • fresh salsa
  • avocado
  • scrambled egg whites and one “dippy” whole egg

My favorite thing about this meal?  You can pull it together using whatever fresh produce and proteins you have on hand.  If I were to use this as a pre- or post-workout meal, I’d probably scale back the fat content (i.e. add less avocado and nix the whole egg in favor of more egg whites or a different protein altogether) and add a starchy complex carbohydrate (quinoa would be an ideal option).
Real food that’s really filling, not to mention tasty.  What more could you ask for?
