Epic Bodybuilding Meal Prep (Gran Prep de Comidas para Culturistas)
10-minute #snack meal: cucumber, smoked salmon, avocado & bell pepper salad wraps. Ridiculously easy meal to prep and for a quick energy pick-up! Boom.
This is one of my favorite treat meals. It is easy to make, and you can customize the recipe by adding other raw vegetables to your liking or in season. You can even replace salmon with turkey in case you are not a big fan of seafood.
All you need for this really simple recipe is 4 ingredients. Smoked salmon, cucumber, bell pepper and avocado. Remember, salmon is a great source of omega 3 fatty acids, the “good” fat that your body needs to function and exercise.
Start by cutting half of the cucumber into thin slices with a mandolin. Then slice veggies into thin strips and build bite-sized wraps. Use cucumber as a base, add smoked salmon and veggies, and roll it up.
Fresh and crunchy salmon salad is perfect for a spring lunch or quick low carb dinner.
I’m thrilled at how good this smoked salmon salad recipe is! It’s simple, healthy and done in less than 10 minutes. Besides, salmon is one of the most nutritious foods. Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are considered essential, so you must get them from your diet because your body cannot create them. Salmon is also full of high-quality protein, another essential nutrient.

This easy lamb chops recipe is sweet, with just the right kick of heat. Seasoned generously with herbs and spices, it sits on top of a delicious sweet potato and cranberry waffle. If you were wondering what else you could make with that waffle iron sitting in your cabinet, give this a try. Whether it’s for Easter brunch or a fancy Mother’s Day feast, the juicy and tender lamb chops look gorgeous on top of crispy waffles that are not only paleo friendly, but protein packed to keep you on track for your health and fitness goals.
Try to get grass fed and organic lamb since they have a more robust flavor and are better for your body too. While the spice mix I use here is more middle eastern, containing turmeric, cumin, garlic, red pepper, and onion powder, feel free to switch it up with whatever you have in your pantry. Lamb traditionally pairs well with dill, garlic, rosemary, and mint so if you have those on hand, a dash here and there will be very welcome. If you have a cast iron skillet, all the better to get a nice crust that seals in the moisture, or you can chuck them over some charcoal for grilled lamb chops or chops with garlic instead. If you have a rack of lamb, seasoning it and then roasting it in the oven is also a possibility, especially if you’re preparing multiple portions for lunch or dinner guests. I personally love lamb chops medium rare, but you might like them a little more or less cooked and that’s completely fine. Make sure you practice food safety when handling raw meat.
The secret to keeping the waffles together are the egg whites, which will bind the grated sweet potatoes and prevent them from falling apart. To keep the waffles from getting soggy, only place the lamb chops on top of them in the last few minutes before serving. The waffles are a great way to use up the sweet potatoes if you find yourself with too many. They also freeze and reheat well, so you can make a whole stack of them, stick them in the freezer, and pop a few into the oven for a quick and easy breakfast.
Just thinking about this sweet, savory, and spicy treat that gets my appetite going. If you enjoyed this herbed lamb chops and waffles recipe, shoot me a message or leave a comment below. I would love to hear all about it!
Surf and Turf Muscle Kabobs! Swordfish steak & flank steak with cherry tomatoes and yellow bell peppers, with a spinach & cucumber salad with sesame vinaigrette.
For this swordfish steak recipe, you’ll need just 5 ingredients! Swordfish steak, lean flank steak, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and your choice of greens for salad.
Quick, easy and delicious!
Start by getting one swordfish steak and one lean flank steak. This should be enough fish, but you can also get more if you want to prepare a larger amount of food for the whole family or if you’re expecting guests.
When I prepare a swordfish, I like to add an aromatic taste, so I also use ginger, garlic and cumin. To get started, cut the fish into pieces. You can season to taste, but keep it simple. If you want to follow my recipe, add ginger, garlic, cumin, pepper and red pepper.
Then cut yellow bell pepper into pieces and make the kabobs.
Spray a skillet with coconut oil or olive oil. Place the kabobs and cook them on both sides so that they are equally well cooked.
Make sure the swordfish steak is cooked all the way. Now you’re ready to enjoy a tasty grilled fish meal!
Remove the kabobs from the grill, serve on a plate, and voila you have a delicious meal, rich in protein!
Amaze your friends with this unusual finger food with a specific taste that is pleasing to everyone, especially if they love fish.
I tried this specialty a couple of years ago, and I have made it many times since then because I adore that it is so light and tasty and fits into my diet plan.

High protein parfait for breakfast? It’s a great combination of fresh fruits, nonfat Greek yogurt and crunchy granola. Perfect healthy breakfast on the go.
This blackberry and strawberry parfait recipe has 3 layers, which you can assemble the way I am, or as you wish. Also, it can be assembled in any container you want. I use these glass jars because they are very practical.
Berries play a major role in this recipe, so make sure the ones you get are ripe enough, juicy and sweet.
Wash and drain the berries well. Remove the stems from strawberries, then chop them into slices or small chunks. To assemble the parfaits, layer the three components starting with adding fresh strawberries and blackberries in the bottom of parfait glasses. Then add greek yogurt and finally granola. Sprinkle a little cinnamon on top if you like.
If you want to boost a level of protein, you can add a little bit of collagen or flavored protein powder of your choice to the greek yogurt.
Chill parfaits for 2 hours in the fridge before serving, and they are ready for sweet enjoyment. It tastes as good as they look, trust me!
This parfaits recipe is very customizable, so you can add fruits or other ingredients of your choice. You can add fresh raspberries, peaches, blueberries, or bananas. As long as the fruit is fresh, the dessert will be great. Also, try to make your own homemade granola and use it in this combination for breakfast.
Parfait doesn’t have to be just breakfast, you can also use this recipe for a healthy dessert. Many desserts require baking in the oven, but this is a great, very easy recipe that does not require much time to make.
It is also a great dessert that you can make for someone, if you do not have a lot of skills for making desserts that are complicated.
These sweet potato sliders with lean ground turkey are a recipe that is as nutritious as tasty!
The following ingredients will be enough to make four sliders. Get 6oz of lean ground meat of your choice, 150g of sweet potatoes, arugula and spinach, BBQ sauce, and spices.
Simply slice sweet potatoes into thick pieces to make the buns. Place them on a baking sheet and bake the potato slices in the oven at 405F. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the buns are fully cooked and at the right firmness level.
Some people prefer them soft, but I prefer the firmer version for this recipe. Be sure to let them cool before you assemble the burger and start eating so you don’t get burnt.
Season the lean ground turkey and make mini patties with your hands. Cook the meat in the skillet on medium heat and leave them to cool down for a couple of minutes.
Now, we will assemble these patties. On one of the sweet potato slices, add arugula and spinach, turkey pattie, and a tablespoon of BBQ sauce. Top it with the second sweet potato slice. Repeat the process for your remaining sliders. Serve your sliders and enjoy! Just that easy!
Delicious bbq turkey sliders are one of my favorite treats, and when you try them you will know why.

Egg baked avocado, egg whites, skillet grilled red potatoes. Boom.
While this year might not be the best time to hit the gym, you can still and exercise and work out in the comfort of your own home. Do you know what goes well after a good workout? A good protein-packed meal! Grab your whey protein, and it’s time to make some protein banana split!
Usually, the typical banana split consists of a banana split in half, three scoops of ice cream in any flavor, topped with nuts, chocolate or strawberry syrup, and cherries. The only thing about classic banana splits is that they are high in sugar content if consumed regularly. On the other hand, this protein-packed version of the banana split will definitely fill you up after a good workout.
For the ingredients, you’ll need one medium banana, non-fat Greek yogurt, strawberries, blueberries, and granola. Greek yogurt is yogurt strained to remove most of its whey, resulting in a thicker consistency, which makes it the perfect substitute for ice cream. You can also add dark chocolate chips according to your preference.
Start by cutting your banana in half lengthwise. Then if you want to slice up your strawberries and blueberries, you can slice them according to your preference. It’s also fine not to slice them up and eat them as they are. Place your banana on a rectangular plate, then add in your non-fat Greek yogurt. Throw in your fruits in the banana split, and sprinkle your granola as well. Voila! You just made a protein-packed banana split.
You can pair this up with a whey protein isolate of your choice. This recipe sure is a filling and muscle-building one because of its proteins, which makes it the perfect post-workout meal. You can also use this recipe as a low-carb breakfast to start your day right.

This delicious meal that features a tasty black bean recipe can be made even easier with the use of an instant pot or slow cooker. You will cut your prep time down if you make the beans beforehand, and they can easily be portioned out and frozen for weekly (or monthly) lunch and dinner plans. With brussel sprouts and tender scallops, this recipe is perfect for those after gym meals where you need to replenish your energy and protein without sacrificing your health goals.
Tasty black bean recipes can sometimes be hard to find but look no further. The secret is using pico de gallo, some cumin, and garlic to season it into a delightful mix. You can use dried black beans if you want to make black beans from scratch, but canned beans work too. However, dried beans may be cheaper in the long run if this is something you foresee making large amounts of at a time.
For sea scallops, make sure they are dry, firm, and smell like the sea. If they are shiny or wet, they are often old, and if they have a fishy smell, are way past their prime and you should skip. Make sure you don’t overcook the scallops when a quick sear will do. Scallops will shrink and be tough if you cook them for too long.
Depending on how you like them, you can steam or roast the brussel sprouts until they are tender and nutty. As a leafy green, brussel sprouts (which look like tiny cabbages) are an excellent source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. With these and beans at your side, it is very easy to switch up the scallops with another protein source such as beef, chicken, or fish.
