Meal Prep Sunday #7 - A High Protein Hit
Chicken and eggs are a great way to get a hit of protein in your diet, but it can all get a bit boring. Until now!...
A high protein diet is without a doubt THE most effective way to achieve your body composition goals and achieve that aesthetic look. I'm sure you know by now that chicken is a great source of lean protein and that eggs are a good blend of protein and fats.
Both foods have pretty much no carbs and therefore make a good choice for those of you seeking to up your protein intake without having a boat load of tag along calories you didn't really want.
But that search for high protein foods leads to dull food choices. Chicken with sweet potato, chicken with brown rice and broccoli. Yawn! And the egg recipes get worse! Omelettes and plain hard boiled eggs are about as far as the imagination is stretched.
With this week's Meal Prep Sunday blog, I wanted to to show that it doesn't have to be that way. There's lots of variety you can bring to these two great ingredients without trashing your macros and blowing your calories for the day.
This week, I've got two recipes for you that I know your taste buds are just going to go crazy for. For starters, who doesn't love scotch eggs. An entire egg wrapped in sausage meat and dipped in breadcrumbs. Delicious. But not exactly macro friendly. Well the first recipe I've got for you turns that on it's head, with a scotch egg made with chicken rather than sausage meat. That's going to give you nearly 40 grams of protein!
The second recipe is for those of you that are watching your fats. I'm taking the humble egg white and raising the bar with an egg white omelette with trout, on a bed on toast and cottage cheese. It sounds delicious. And you'd be right!
I'm sure you'll love these two recipes, so........
Let's get cooking...
