You can cut it out if you are trying to lose water weight but its just nitpicking. At least in my opinion......

Depending on a workout or rest day (carbs vs fat) my sides could be greek/spinach salad, vegetables with a cream sauce made from campbells cream stock / seasonings, baked potato, rice, etc. Usually I don't have a "side", I make meals that are just a combination of everything (and taste amazing). Stir fry is an obvious example for a great protein / carb / vegetable source.
i just said sodium to avoid writing out a long explanation. i'd been eating these:


ive been wanting to move over to more homecooked meals and raw produce instead

frozen produce is just as good as fresh. Not talking green giant mixes with sauce. I mean just frozen veggies alone.

These are the best imo (the product line). Nothing but veggies. Avoid anything that includes pasta or potatoes etc.

32oz of Tomato Sauce
12oz of Tomato Paste
28oz can diced tomatoes
10-15 white mushrooms, diced
1 large yellow onion, diced
4 teaspoons italian seasoning
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon sugar (reduces acidity of diced tomatoes)
1/4 package of clubhouse spaghetti seasoning packet

brown beef in an oiled large saucepan on medium high
add mushrooms and onions, cook and stir for about ~5 minutes
add italian seasoning, salt, pepper & sugar ... stir to combine
add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce & paste... stir to combine
add 1/4 package of spaghetti seasoning... stir to combine

let simmer for one hour, stirring occassionally

thats an awesome and easy meat sauce, tastes way better than any of the canned sauces.

I add my meatball recipe which I'm way too lazy to type out / explain methods but if you want meatballs fast and easy just buy a box of frozen ones

this could also be done in a slow cooker

I also add a good amount of fresh nuts that i crush up for more protein (walnuts, macadamia, pistachio, peanuts, almonds ect.). Then bake at 350 for about 20 minutes (if the edge turns brown they should be crunchy when they cool, i wait till the edge just barely browns and cut right away so they are a little chewy). You'll have some amazing granola bars.

Bake in regular 9x13 pans and grease them well.

Be sure to cut before they cool because if you make them crunchy and wait to long they'll be a real pain to cut.

I spread peanut butter on them when i eat them, more protein, and it's delicious. I also make about 3-4x that recipe when i make them so i have a good 2 weeks supply. They're great snacks! And guilt free.

I'm assuming you could also substitute some flour with whey protein if you wanted.

2 batches will make around 28 bars depending how you cut them.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

I finally learned how to cook meals with enough for two meals.

Try this chick rub sometime: Cumin, crushed red pepper, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, minced garlic... toss it in a tbsp olive oil and throw it on the Foreman Grill. Really good with spaghetti.
