Eggs are the most practical and quick source of proteins (and vitamins too!) there is.
Though this tends to make people lazy.
How many times you just didn’t want to put much effort into it and just had them scrambled over easy?
And how quickly did you become bored of eating eggs day in and day out?
I take, making eggs taste delicious and interesting, as a challenge.
I love to try to invent new ways to prepare eggs.
They are such a versatile food!
Think of how many applications they have!
Today I show you a quick and delicious recipe to prepare eggs.
It takes a few ingredients, adds some fibers, and it’s plain tasty!
Eggplants season in this part of the world!
If you have been following me for a while now, you should know how much I like sardines and what a powerful food they are.
Plenty of omega-3s, minerals, and protein.
Some people though might be intimidated by the weird oily texture and, sometimes, the smell.
After trying this recipe, I promise, you will start loving sardines like you never thought possible before.
The flavors packed into this simple and easy recipe are incredible.
You can see my genuine reaction to tasting this recipe for the first time. I was seriously having a foodgasm there!
Besides tasting heavenly, this recipe is Keto since it has almost no carbs at all but also Paleo, Primal, LCHF, and, of, course IIFYM.
Also, it requires no cooking (besides the eggplants which you could make in bulk and store in the freezer). It takes literally 5 min to assemble and it’s very cheap too.
I use canned sardines that come at 88g for just 0.53 euro!
I have this for lunch. This recipe is recommended if you are cutting because it has few calories, lots of proteins, and it’s very very satiating.
I haven’t found a proof in the scientific literature but I experience complete appetite suppression for many hours after eating this and I suspect it’s the raw garlic.
I can’t wait for you to try this quick recipe out and have many foodgasms like I had 🙂
Chicken is the bodybuilders most favorite.
Alright, alright, it’s chicken breast and this recipe is with chicken thighs.
Well, I LOVE chicken thighs and can’t help myself coming up with recipes to make them taste even more delicious!
Furthermore, as many of you, I like simple recipes: few ingredients, quick from pan to plate, little cleaning afterward.
Guess what, this one-pot recipe is all of that!
And it’s a keto recipe too!
*ROAR OF APPLAUSE* (thank you, thank you)
It uses mainly herbs that you should have in your kitchen available (if not, what are you even eating hahah) and other staple ingredients.
It uses wine, but as I always say, you don’t need the expensive stuff. Buy the cheap one and it keeps in the fridge forever (it’s for cooking!).
This super easy to make recipe provides almost 50g of protein per serving, 1g of carbs and 630kcal. What an amazing way to cut weight, if you ask me!
This goes great with a salad made of fresh lettuce, fennel, arugula, celery, and a couple of cherry tomatoes. With, it goes without saying, some tasty extra virgin olive oil drizzled on top.
You don’t need to be a bodybuilder to appreciate this keto recipe. Given the high-protein content, though, this recipe is indicated for whoever does resistance training which means lifting weights. Also if you do calisthenics or gymnastic and you are on a ketogenic diet, this recipe is good for you too!
Besides being keto friendly, this recipe is also suited for the following diets: Paleo, Primal, LCHF.
You can replace the wine with beer, vinegar, chicken broth.
Without further ado, here’s the recipe!
You know when you open your fridge and you can find just a couple of ingredients and get discouraged?
That’s what happened to me before making this recipe.
I opened my fridge and I just had chicken and cherry tomatoes.
On top of that, I wanted to make something quickly.
That inspired me to create this one-pot very simple and easy recipe which also takes 10-15 min to make.
This recipe is great for a meal-prep too since you can make it in advance, store in the fridge, and reheat before eating.
It’s very high in protein and so low-carb that even people on the ketogenic diet can make it.
The taste is completely unexpected: sweet from the cherry tomatoes, sour from the wine and garlic, and great savoriness from the chicken blend together to give you a unique mouth-watering experience.
This makes a great post-workout or dinner when you are looking to pack some muscle mass with an high-protein meal.
Besides being Keto, this recipe is also Paleo, Primal, LCHF, and ofc IIFYM.
If you want to add more carbs, pair this with some rice or (oven baked) potatoes fries.
About the wine: it doesn’t to be the expensive stuff. I truly buy the cheapest there is and, once opened, it can last in the fridge basically forever. You can use wine for a lot of recipes to make them even more delicious so it’s not a waste!
If you are short on time and don’t have enough time to cook this keto lunch recipe can be a lifesaver.
This dish is called Caprese. and I’ve been eating it when I was in Italy very often and it was one of my most favorite meals!
Especially if you use buffalo mozzarella and very fresh cherry tomatoes, this can turn easily into a foodgasmic experience 🙂
You don’t need fancy recipes to eat well. This is what south Italian cuisine is all about: few ingredients, simple to make, tastebuds ecstasy guaranteed.
This dish is very low carb, therefore, it can be eaten on a ketogenic diet.
It’s also dirty cheap and very quick to prepare since no cooking is involved!
You know, well, everybody knows that cabbage is good for you.
Right. But that taste…
I wanted to include some green cabbage in my diet and tried to think of how can I make this enjoyable and not a dread.
I thought: Chinese have been using green cabbage since forever and they make delicious stuff out of them!
Since I am not Chinese and I wouldn’t dare mess around with such a complex, rich, and ancient culinary art, I decided to give Chinese cabbage rolls an Italian spin so nobody gets offended. Though if you are Chinese and want to teach me how to make high-protein healthy cabbage rolls, please write me 🙂
So, what makes this dish “Italian”?
Besides the usual aromatics (onion, carrots, leek) I used red wine and fennel seeds. Fennel seeds really give a twist to this dish!
This has only 19g of carbs per serving which makes it ideal for someone on a LCHF diet or keto (when carbs are kept below 50g).
It’s also fairly high-protein. But if you want to increase the amount of protein without increasing calories, go for lean beef (here I used a fatty cut).
This dish can easily be boosted in protein to have 30-40g per serving just by using lean beef.
This dish has less than 500kcal per serving so it can be used for cutting as well (use lean beef in this case which will also increase the amount of protein per serving!)
If I had a broiler, I would have put some Parmesan cheese on top and gave them a couple of mins to become crunchy and even more delicious!
I know, I know, the title of this video sounds super scammy, but stay with me for a second and I will explain to you why this recipe may (YMMV) will increase stamina and libido.
I’ve been eating sardines for more than 1 year, every day.
Not only sardines are high in protein, they are also packed with omega-3, vitamins, and minerals. Ah, and I haven’t mentioned how cheap they are…
Where I live (The Netherlands), you can buy a can, containing 88g of sardines for just 53 euro cents!
100g of sardines will provide you with 25g of protein, 1.5g of omega3s (!!), 68% of your RDA of vitamin D3, and 9% of your RDA of zinc.
Why did I mention specifically omega3s, vitamin D3, and zinc?
Because higher intakes of these are correlated with high testosterone levels.
Do I have to tell you why having higher testosterone is good for you?
Besides that, omega3s are anabolic, which means that they promote by themselves increases in muscle mass and strength (you still have to train though).
But this dish doesn’t contain sardines only. We have a whole combo of manliness enhancing foods!
Enhances blood flow in your body. It can be for this reason be used as pre-workout to “increase the pump” or to increase endurance. Now, it has never been studied as a “sexual performance enhancer” but my guess is that if it enhances endurance exercise it will naturally enhance stamina too.
Aka “natural viagra” aka “vegetable viagra”. Since I started eating 1-2 cloves daily (steaming or boiling removes bad breath giving compounds) I feel 14 years old again.
It is not very well known as testosterone/libido enhancer yet it can increase sperm count and quality, testosterone, and ejaculate volume. Besides that, it’s truly a great “superfood” enhancing also your memory and lowering inflammation.
Then we have other components in this dish that are just straight good for your health and immunity. Because even if you have high libido and stamina, if you’re sick, there’s no use to that 🙂
Sauerkaut are a source of probiotics, fibers, and vitamin C (and lemon juice too). These will make you less susceptible to getting sick and there’s one study saying that vitamin C can lower the symptoms of depression, leading to more frequent intercourses (the study is funded by a pharma company so this last piece might be total bs).
That’s it! Simple, easy, high-protein, and also tastes great! Try this recipe for yourself and let me know how it goes!
Now cauliflowers are cheap. What can I do with them besides the usual boring “cauliflower pizza”?
I wanted to make something low-carb even keto-friendly for my breakfast. Furthermore, I wanted a low calories high-protein keto breakfast which is quick, easy to make and right delicious.
As usual, I looked at my Italian background and came up with this incredibly delicious and easy keto breakfast recipe.
I love mackerel. But its smell doesn’t love my house so I rarely cooked it.
Until I stumbled upon this method to avoid it smelling the entire house when cooking it in a pan.
Simply put a bowl with white vinegar just next to the stove.
When I read it I thought of another mambo jumbo technique you can find plenty of on the internet. But, hey, white vinegar is super cheap so why not trying!
Because I was afraid that the smelly smoke would contaminate my softboxes diffusers, I didn’t film it, unfortunately. But I could take nice pics to put on the website as you can see.
Mackerel contains high amounts of omega3s which have an anabolic effect. This means that they can stimulate directly muscle protein synthesis which becomes synergistic with your workout.
Fatty fish cooked in a hot pan with olive oil is amazing because, when you sear it, the Maillard reaction takes place and the fish surface becomes super crunchy. Having the oil infused with garlic before searing the fish will infuse all that goodness into the fish.
Let me tell you what a match made in heaven is mackerel with olive oil, garlic, and lemon!
The parley then will completely remove the fishy taste creating a great balance with the lemon and all the other tastes.
I’m really proud of this simple yet succulent dish!
