If the first three blogs didn’t make it clear I LOVE chicken. But I’m not trying to promote any stereotypes here and it’s not everyday chicken, sometimes you have to switch it up. All the fitness ‘Bro’s’ out there know that there’s only so much chicken, brown rice, and broccoli you can eat before you go insane. And even with all the flava coming out of my kitchen variety is still the spice of life. This dish will revolutionalize your meal prep Mondays and help you stay on track towards your fitness goals.
As well as being delicious, salmon is high in protein, which will aid in building and retaining muscle. It’s also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids which have been linked to improved cognitive function, reduced risk of heart disease and improved joint health, among many other benefits. So this is definitely a recipe to add to your meal prep rotation.
