Simple Muscle Building Meal


Very simple and incredibly yummy, combining a quality whey protein powder with Greek yogurt gives you a perfect muscle building, low fat, recovery-promoting snack that is as simple as it gets to prepare.  I love Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Protein (got to get the Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor) which gives me 30 grams of high quality protein with all essential and non-essential amino acids per scoop (they don't pay me to say that, although I wish they did).  This stuff is around $15 at Wal-Mart and it mixes well with milk, almond milk (my fav) or water.  


Adding a scoop to one cup of Greek yogurt gives you close to 50 grams of protein, along with the valuable probiotics in the yogurt and a nice balance of carbs to really jump start recovery after an intense workout.  I like Cabot's Vanilla Bean Greek Yogurt, but there are as many varieties out there as one can imagine.  Some of you guys might prefer the fat-free Greek options available and the plain is almost as yummy when you mix in the whey powder.  Obviously the plain has a significantly lower sugar content which is something that many people need to be aware of, and yes there are sugar-free whey protein powders out there for y'all too :) 


This is also a great option as a mid-day snack or meal for those of you looking to start eating 5-6 smaller meals a day, verses the old 3 meals a day routine.  If you aren't doing that, you should be as a way increase your metabolism (read: burning calories) and maintaining a healthier and more stable blood sugar level throughout the day.
