Meal: Powerful Protein Salad

Are you ready to create a protein packed salad?

I am often on the roads or in a work environment where I can’t rustle up a lean meal very easily. This is what I often eat for a lunch or as a pre-gym meal.

If you count your macros or find yourself looking at fat/carb and protein contents, then this salad might work for you! I prefer to eat more often to keep the metabolism going but stick to protein and low calorie food.

I buy my meat from Muscle Food – fantastic quality at an excellent price.

Ingredients:
– 300g Chicken Breast from Muscle Food
– 2 Hard boiled eggs
– 100g Mushrooms
– 1 Avocado
– Salad leaves
– Tomato
– 60g Edamame Beans

PREP TIME: 15 minutes

NUTRITION TIP: Drinking plenty of water before meals – it can help boost the amount of calories you burn.
According to studies, it can boost metabolism by 24-30% over a period of 1-1.5 hours. The best time to drink water is half an hour before meals.

Give this meal a try, let me know how you get on. If you upload a photo of your protein salad and tag me ‘@tomseedfitness‘ I would love to see your version!

Thanks for reading,
