Meal Prep Sunday #5 - 2 Twists on Chicken & Rice
Tired of opening that Tupperware at dinner time and staring at plain chicken and rice, AGAIN!? Well weep no more...
Chicken and rice has become synonymous with fitness and bodybuilding these days. It seems to the dish that springs to people's mind when they embark on a fitness programme.
"Do I have to eat chicken and rice 4 times a day?" is the usual question that gets asked.
The answer is no. Of course you don't. Setting up your meal plan properly should mean that you have lots of flexibility to enjoy those foods you love and still make progress.
I think that the plain chicken and rice crew repeat that same meal out of convenience, laziness, an inability to cook, or a combination of all 3. And I'm guilty of being in that posse for a time, but thankfully I've branched out into other dishes. And when I do have chicken and rice, it's not the plain and boring kind. Frankly I don't think I could get it down my throat without gagging.
Dry chicken, dry rice, and dry vegetables has no appeal for me.
If you're looking to get out of the chicken and rice rut, then this is the blog for you. Don't get me wrong, chicken and rice is a great dish. Lean meat and a good source of carbs. It's perfect for hitting those macros. But you and I both know we can do better than boiling everything.
Let's bring excitement back to this bodybuilding staple.
I'm sure you'll love these two recipes, so get yourself in that kitchen and rustle up something to reignite those taste buds!
Let's get cooking...
