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.
The Chocolate-Coconut Protein Shake
It is a great option for a quick snack or breakfast!
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.
The Lamb Merguez Egg Scramble
This is a great breakfast, or even a quick dinner, option. It takes about 15 minutes to make.
1/2 lbs Fresh Lamb Merguez (courtesy of The Meat House)
3 oz Smoked Duck Breast (again…thank you Meat House!)
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!!
