Today we go for something rather sophisticated but actually incredibly easy to make.
On top of that, it is gluten-free and perfect if you are coeliac and doing bodybuilding.
The recipe is not the quickest but it’s simple and straightforward. This would make you look like a master chef even if your biggest culinary achievement so far has been scrambled eggs.
I would recommend this recipe to whoever has never tried making risotto since it’s very basic and simple and can help you getting started.
Once you can master this high-protein risotto, every other risotto recipe is going to be a no-brainer and will add endless possibilities to your cooking repertoire. For instance, you could try this foodgasmic risotto with pumpkin and pork sausage.
I love to have risotto as my post-workout because I can get in one package carbs, proteins, and fat with benefits of an incredible creamy taste.
Great for when you are bulking and want to eat a lot of calories in a single meal!
My plan was to cook this, wait 1 hour and then have dinner.
The taste was so delicious, I ended up eating the whole thing after the first “tryout” bite.
In my mouth, there was a mixing of textures and flavors that left me truly surprised and in that ecstasy that only certain food can give you.
The crunchiness of the roasted pumpkin perfectly matched with the creaminess of the rice. The richness of the pork sausage masterfully combined with the smoky fresh flavors of paprika and rosemary.
This recipe is a keeper. It will always be in my repertoire from now on.
This bodybuilding recipe is high in protein and high in calories and gluten-free (great if you are coeliac!).
It’s a perfect bulking meal idea when you don’t have to watch too much at your calories.
I use it as post-workout since it gives you carbs, protein, and fat in a good ratio.
Feel free to change the amounts used to fit your macros.
No idea how to serve your hamburgers?
Problems getting your veggies in while on keto?
I decided to give these burgers a spin with a traditional Italian dish: peperonata!
Peperonata is sort of a slow-cooked dish with peppers and garlic served with black olives and capers. Traditionally everything is drenched in olive oil but for this recipe, I used the fat from the burgers and beef tallow.
Why beef tallow? I bought it and I was curious to try it 🙂
This recipe is high-protein so perfect for bodybuilders and powerlifters or whoever wants to put on some muscle mass.
A big traditional Italian classics which is perfect for building muscle and strength too!
Furthermore, this recipe has very low amount of carbs and it’s very cheap and easy to make.
Next time you have guests at home thinking how miserable your life must be on a LCHF diet, serve them this, and you might get a convert right there 🙂
In my opinion, a heavily underrated food is ricotta cheese.
This Italian cheese is different from other cheeses as it is made from whey.
Yes, the same whey used to make whey protein powder.
And let me tell you, this is a much better alternative to whey protein powder (if you are bulking, that is).
Not only it’s more nutritious, contains a healthy amount of fat, and gives you more satiety, it tastes extraordinarily delicious!
If you are bulking and need 1100 kcal of sheer goodness you have to try this recipe.
It’s so easy and quick to make that you have no excuses.
You just need a few ingredients, mix them together, no cooking necessary!
I see your mouth watering already 🙂
