Healthy Eating for Men

I was researching clean eating and healthy eating several weeks ago and found this amazing website/blog called Fit Men Cook.

The Fit Men Cook website, pure awesomeness

The layout is perfect for today's Instagram minded food porn viewer. Plus, the recipes are easy to make and protein rich. Plus all recipes and content is in English AND Spanish. A man after my own heart.

I immediately became a fan of the bulk chicken cooking recipe, which I've downsized for two or more meals rather than using an entire tray of chicken. I even went out and bought a handled griddle pan to help cook the chicken evenly, over two burners.

I really like this website and the host, and look forward to learning many more, vibrantly colored veggie and protein recipes.


New Favorite Salad

I found a large box of baby kale at a new Walmart Supercenter they recently opened near me, so I've begun enjoying large salads with lots of yummy toppings again. The weather not being as cold as usual, makes eating fresh veggies/uncooked food a little easier on the stomach.

Here's what the salad looks like, I was unable to embed the image from Instagram.

Ingredients:
Handful of baby kale
chopped pineapple
chopped strawberries
blueberries
chopped green onions/chives
pecans
walnut halves
olive oil
lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
a dash of powdered garlic and powdered onion (optional)
chopped leftover asparagus (optional)
chopped avocado (optional)
chopped or sliced leftover animal protein (optional)

Directions:
Mix and enjoy. Packs well too!
