Yummy in my tummy

Cooking – whether you love it or hate it, it is an essential part of any healthy lifestyle.

And really, it doesn’t have to be painful!

So to encourage people to cook, and to prove just how easy it is to make delicious meals on Primal/Paleo, I’ve decided to start a Recipe Box section of Man Bicep!

I plan to post a recipe each week (if you have any requests, let me know!). There will be quick and easy recipes, breakfast recipes, dinner recipes and yes…even dessert recipes!

So let the chowing down begin! Here are two wonderful recipes to start you off! I actually had these yesterday on my Primal cheat day for Breakfast number 1 and 2…yes, I did in fact eat two breakfasts yesterday.

Recipe #1

The Chocolate-Coconut Protein Shake

It is a great option for a quick snack or breakfast!

Ingredients:

1-2 scoops of Chocolate Whey Protein
1/3 cup light coconut milk
1/4 cup chilled water

Add all ingredients to shaker and mix well!

For this recipe, I use Trader Joe’s light coconut milk because it has nothing added to it. I also like Optimum whey protein. I like the taste and it doesn’t have any carbs.

Recipe #2

The Lamb Merguez Egg Scramble

This is a great breakfast, or even a quick dinner, option. It takes about 15 minutes to make.

Ingredients:

1/2 lbs Fresh Lamb Merguez (courtesy of The Meat House)
3 oz Smoked Duck Breast (again…thank you Meat House!)
5 Eggs
2 tbsp Trader Joe’s Salsa Verde
2 tbsp Trader Joe’s Tomatillo & Roasted Yellow Chili Salsa
Sprinkling of Trader Joe’s Grass-fed Cheddar Cheese
Tablespoon of Mitchell’s Chili con Queso (courtesy of The Meat House)

Fully cook the Lamb Merguez and then add the smoked duck, eggs and salsas. Scramble together on medium heat. Then scoop the egg scramble onto a plate. Add some extra salsa, some cheese and a dollop of queso. Serve with a side of veggies or fruit!

We use the Meat House and Trader Joe’s products because they actually are all natural. There are no vegetable oils or gluten fillers added to any of their stuff. The queso is also just salsa and full-fat cream cheese and cheddar cheese. The eggs are cage-free from Trader Joe’s as well.

This is just one of Ryan’s wonderful breakfast scrambles…more to come soon!!

  1. those look yummy! My system doesn’t tolerate any milk, eggs or soy. Any recipes for those restrictions? I have the hardest time finding snacks.

    • So the protein shake would work for you as coconut milk is devoid of lactose and casein as is the whey.

      I never use soy in anything myself so none of the recipes will have soy.

      Nuts are a great snack. I love whenever I get to eat apples and almond butter.

      I will come up with some more things you can eat!

  2. I have not had success with the whey protein either. 😦 The only kind of protein powder that works is brown rice which tastes horrible but is a great way to get protein after workouts(i mix it with a crystal light flavoring packet for water bottles). Is the coconut milk sweet?

  3. I am not sure which one I tried….i tried a few as I was figuring out which form I could tolerate. I may give it a try again.
