How To Spice Up Your Fitness Foods
Whenever you look in a fitness magazine, they tell you to have a meal that contains a protein source (usually chicken), a complex carb source (typically a sweet potato), and also broccoli.
Sure on paper that sounds like a solid healthy meal. But what about taste?
If you had those three foods day after day, you’d get bored very quick. And when the majority of people get bored…they resort back to the temptation of unhealthy sugary and salty foods.
This is where I came into the picture and teach you how to turn boring “fitness foods”, into delicious foods that you’ll actually want to eat.
In this episode of Lean Live TV’s Brad’s Cookbook, I show you how to spice up your fitness foods to make them absolutely delicious.
I take a chicken breast, a sweet potato, and broccoli, and turn them into a dinner that even your 3 year old kid will want to eat (I have proof from a viewer comment).
