Friday Post-Workout Recovery Meal

 Grilling on Friday NightAfter an hour of weight training and 20 minutes of vigorous intervals, it’s time for a recovery meal! This dinner includes the recommended 30 grams of protein and 80 grams of carbohydrates plus an abundance of veggies. It’s great when you can follow the trainer’s guidelines and eat as if it’s a celebration.

Why shouldn’t I celebrate? It’s Friday and I gave my all to the workout!

So tonight’s menu has some of my favorites (with an Asian flair). Grass feed beef was marinated in a little soy and hoisin sauce. There is no need for oil if you get your grill screaming hot. I brushed some of the marinade on my vegetables and sprinkled some Chinese Five Spice on the pineapple. When you grill fruit, something wonderful happens! My slow carb tonight is a mixture of brown rice, orzo, quinoa, and lentils flavored with chopped parsley and radicchio. I’m so glad it’s warm enough to get outside and grill!
