The key to a healthy and beautiful shape is known to everyone – physical activity and proper nutrition. However, like while playing Blackjack games, you must follow certain rules. Otherwise, you may not see results at all from where all efforts will be directed.
One of the most common mistakes isn’t eating the right dinner, which nullifies the effectiveness of a hard workout.
There are several common situations. A proper breakfast, a healthy lunch, and then meeting up with friends after work and…it’s all a blur next. Or, on the contrary, too determined and the famous “you can’t eat after six” somewhere in the subconscious. Any fitness expert will tell you that doing sports on an empty stomach or starving after a workout can be dangerous for the body.
Chicken With Fresh Vegetables
This is the lowest-calorie option. This dinner is most suitable for those who strive to lose weight. Chicken breast is a dietary and low-calorie product that contains a lot of protein and has a positive effect on muscles after a workout. Vegetables will supplement such a dinner with vitamins and amino acids.
Cut the chicken breast into small pieces, coat it in spices and fry the meat until golden brown. Slice the vegetables and serve with freshly cooked breast and greens. Sprinkle lemon over the vegetables if you like.
Brown Rice With Shrimp
The benefits of brown rice are much higher than white rice. It contains a lot of fiber, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc and vitamin B-6. Such rice lowers cholesterol levels, supports the heart and blood vessels, and prevents digestive problems. Shrimp would be a great addition to such a dinner.
Boil the rice according to the instructions on the package. Soak the pre-cleaned shrimp in boiling water and hold in hot water for a few minutes. Mix shrimp with rice, add cucumbers and herbs and serve. If desired, you can season with lemon juice or soy sauce.
Stewed Turkey With Vegetables
Turkey meat, like chicken, is considered dietary and is invariably included in the diet of fans of a healthy lifestyle. Vegetables can be taken both fresh and frozen (they practically do not lose their properties when frozen properly). Such a dinner will help you get the necessary vitamins.
Cut the turkey into small pieces and fry until half cooked. Add all the vegetables except the tomatoes. If the vegetables are frozen, thaw them. Next stir-fry for 5-7 minutes, then put the lid on and stew for 30 minutes. A few minutes before it is ready, add the chopped tomatoes.
Baked Salmon With Bean Salad
Salmon is incredibly healthy. For example, 100 grams of this fish contain half the daily requirement of protein for humans. And that’s not to mention the high content of Omega-3, melatonin, phosphorus, vitamins B and D. Tender fish will definitely appeal to fans of gourmet dishes.
Cut the fish, process it with seasonings and put it in the oven for 15 minutes at 180 degrees. Boil the beans, chop the bell peppers, salad leaves and onions. Mix the chopped components, dress with olive oil and add spices. Place the salad and cooked fish on plates, add lemon juice if desired.
Omelet With Mushrooms
A great dinner option for those who do not eat meat or fish. This dish contains a lot of protein and few carbs. Even those who can’t cook well can cope with this supper. Besides, it takes minimal time to prepare an omelet with vegetables – after a hard workout sometimes you do not have energy for culinary masterpieces.
Beat eggs with milk and spices. Roast mushrooms in a pan until crispy, pour egg mixture over them. Cover with a lid and cook over low heat for 7-10 minutes. A few minutes before cooking, add chopped tomatoes and bell peppers.
