My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

Eating healthy and building muscle on a budget is definitely possible!

Not only will this meal satisfy your wallet, but also it will get those muscles on the road to recovery for your next brutal gym session. This is one of my favorite meals to enjoy following a nice workout.  It has a nice combination of sweet & savory flavors with high quality protein & complex carbohydrates to feed the muscles.
