Protein The Ultimate Muscle Salad


The Ultimate Muscle Salad
approx one to two cups spinach leaves  approx one to two cups mixed leaf lettuce  shredded carrots  1/2 of a ripe avocado, diced  two hard boiled eggs, diced preferrably organic, cage free  three Tbsp chopped pecans  1/4 cup dried cranberries  top with homemade dressing made of balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, and Udo's Choice Oil Blend  3/4 of total liquid should come from the vinegar
Mix it all together and you've got one delicious and ridiculously nutritious salad.
For an extra shot of antioxidants, wash it all down with some homemade iced green/white/oolong tea lightly sweetened with the natural sweetener Stevia or a little touch of raw honey.
Alright, now let's look at the approx macronutrient breakdown:
Protien: 23 grams., Carbohydrates: 48 grams., Fiber: 12 grams., Fat: 45 grams., Calories: 650
The portions above are simply the portions that you can use considering that my maintenance caloric intake is around 3000 calories per day.Teenage boys and active men can get all the protein they need from three daily servingsfor a total of seven ounces.
For children age two to six, most women, and some older people, the government recommends two daily servings for a total of five ounces.
For older children, teen girls, active women, and most men, the guidelines give the nod to two daily servings for a total of six ounces.
Everyone who eats an eight-ounce steak typically served in restaurants is getting more protein that their bodies need. Plus they're getting a hefty amount of artery-clogging saturated fat as well.
