Eggs, Steak and Veggies

Ingredients:

·         3 middle sized eggs

·         400 gr of spinach (washed and chopped)

·         A chicken steak

·         avocado

·         Olive oil

·         salt

In a pan cook the steak in water until  desired doneness. At the end sprinkle some olive oil and salt. Slice the steak into small size strips.

In a small bowl whisk the eggs. In a pan pour a small amount of olive oil an after it gets warm pour the eggs onto the pan together with the spinach. Season with salt and pepper.

Slice up the avocado and serve everything together. Enjoy your fresh, warm meal, stoked with proteins and fats.

We’ll recommend this meal as a breakfast. When you exercise, your protein and fat needs will increase and you may end up eating steaks at dinner and pack some more calories at the end of the day. However, if you start the day with this powerful breakfast you’ll feel energized, eggs will help you feel full for a long period of time and you’ll stock the proteins and fats needed for the day.

Roasted Veggies

To maintain your keto diet you must have a good weekly plan. We recommend doing a meal prep every now and then. This helps you be more time efficient and keeps you on track. The easiest thing to do is to roast and store veggies. They can endure in the fridge for almost a week, and are always tasty. Also they make a good side dish and dinner snacks.

Veggies are a very important part of a keto diet, they are stocked with vitamins, antioxidants and water, which helps you feel full. Of course, they can be very tasty.

·         Line a pan with parchment paper and put all the veggies in. Sprinkle olive oil, salt and            add any seasoning you prefer. ( pepper, oregano, turmeric)

·         Put them in an oven preheated on 200°C.

·         Bake for 20 to 30 min.
