13 Real Food Sources of Protein (NO powders here)

One of the biggest questions I get from my TTB girls in this round and last round is…

“What can I eat to get more protein?”

Now, the fitness industry has taught us that we need to drink protein shakes and/or eat protein bars in order to get enough protein in the day, when, really, neither of those things are necessary (and could even be unsafe).

I will never recommend a pill or a powder supplement over real food, because there are just so many other options. I made this handy little infographic just to name a few…

What about the other big protein questions?….

“Um…What is it?”

“Why do I need it?”

“How much do I need?”

Oat-free “Oatmeal”

Oatmeal is delicious, especially with some good toppings on it!
 
But it isn’t necessarily the healthiest breakfast option….
 
It’s heavy on carbs, with not much to offer in terms of protein and micronutrients. And those instant oatmeal packets are even worse, with tons of added sugar and artificial flavors.
 
This recipe is an awesome alternative! It maintains the taste and texture of oatmeal while adding in some extra protein and vitamins. 

 

Cauliflower is such a versatile veggie 😉

Ingredients

2 cups frozen, riced cauliflower
1 & 1/2 small bananas (ripe)
1/3 cup egg whites
1/3 cup almond milk
2 tbsp almond butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Barbell Workout [Gym Workout]

I’m all for #WOA workouts that can be done anywhere (especially at home), but that fact certainly doesn’t negate my love affair with the barbell.

BUT just like all my WOA routines, it takes less than 20 minutes to get an amazing metabolic workout with a barbell. Try this with the barbell…

5 rounds, all the way through 2-3 times per set, 1 rep each per cycle. After the back squat, do another push press to a front rack and restart the cycle.

You can do this workout with just the barbells, or you can add a little extra weight on there if you’re feeling feisty.

Prepare to sweat and burn 💦🔥💪🏼👌🏼
