Nutrition plays a huge part in helping us to attain our fitness goals. Whether we are looking to lose weight, build muscle or maintain our current fitness level, one of the biggest mistakes we can make is neglecting our diet regimen. Our bodies need fuel to help us get through our workouts, to feed our developing muscles and to keep our metabolism working efficiently. Making an effort to eat the right amounts of quality food can make all the difference when we are working on our physiques. In our Meal Prep department, we will share different healthy recipes that can assist you on your fitness journey.
Fruit ‘n’ Nut Oatmeal
Need a hearty breakfast to get your day started? Oatmeal loaded with fruit and nut can be a wonderful option, plus it can taste delicious. Place the almond milk and rolled oats on the stove on medium heat while stirring for about 5 minutes. When the oats are almost fully cooked, gradually add in the sliced bananas, chia seeds, cinnamon and/or cane sugar and almonds. Continue to stir the oatmeal for another 1-2 minutes, before removing it from the stove. Personalize this dish by add berries, different nuts, or sweetened almond milk.
Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie
A peanut butter and banana smoothie is one of those meal items that sometimes cause you to forget that you’re eating healthy. The natural sweetness of the banana combined with the creamy peanut butter can be a nice treat for anyone with an active sweet tooth. Preparing this meal is as easy as just throwing everything into the blender. For a lighter serving, only use half of a banana. For those who are active in the gym, adding a scoop of vanilla protein powder can help to give you a boost before or after your workout.
Chicken and Veggie Couscous Mix
Couscous is a form of rice that can be a great substitute for those who are looking for something than rice for a change. A quick item to cook, couscous can be spruced up with some chopped chicken and a mix of vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, and peppers. Simply prepare the chicken in advance by sauteeing it on the stove. While the chicken is cooking, prepare your couscous. Once it’s done, add it to the pan with the chicken and mix in the vegetables.
