Fueling your body with healthy, nutrient dense, plant-based calories before an intense training session helps me get the most out of my workout…
One thing I am not however, is a gourmet chef! I don’t spend all day in the kitchen experimenting with food. I like things quick and easy. However, one cannot live on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches alone. Believe me, I’ve tried!
I need nutrient and calorie dense meals to fuel my heavy training sessions, otherwise I’ll end up eating Oreos all day.
Next time you need a calorie dense, nutrient packed meal try this recipe I got from my friend, registered dietitian, Matt Ruscigno.
1. Mash 3 bananas
2. Stir in 2 tablespoons of peanut butter
3. Add one medium diced apple
Mix it all together and go!
