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
- 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?
