We all know that an Organic Chicken Breast is incredibly lean, and roughly has 31 grams of protein per 100g. But every once in a while, you might get bored of chowing down on the same old bird, or maybe you’re in the second phase of our Re-Boot which means NO Meat! Revolution Fitness encourages variation, and by switching things up it will prevent dinner boredom as well as making sure you’re getting enough nutrients into your meals.
So, what else is out there that beats the standard Chicken Breast that stereotypically all ‘Gym-Goers’ crave about … ?
About 12-18 Large Prawns supply up to 34 grams of Protein and will definitely leave you satisfied! Not only that but they contain loads of heart-healthy, omega-3 fatty acids, and no carbohydrates!
Rev’s Green-Machine Smoothie!
… Absolutely NO protein powder required! All you need is to throw the following into a blender or NutriBullet:
220ml Almond Milk (We like Rude Health or PipnNut)
30g Hemp seeds
With this tasty smoothie, you’ll boost up on at least 31g of protein, veggies, healthful monounsaturated fatty acids, and omega 3s, plus a small handful of complex carbs.
Don’t ‘poohoo’ it before you try it! Tofu is a great source of protein and contains all eight essential amino acids. It is also an excellent source of iron and calcium and the minerals manganese, selenium and phosphorous. In addition, tofu is a good source of magnesium, copper, zinc and vitamin B1. Surprising huh!? Time to get on the Tofu Train! #choochoo!
I know what you’re thinking! What the f**k is Seitan!? Well, it’s actually a plant based protein that’s derived from Wheat Gluten, and contains a whopping 31.5 grams of Protein! Although it is made from wheat, seitan has little in common with flour or bread, and becomes surprisingly similar to the look and texture of meat when cooked, making it a popular meat substitute.
So, there you go … Try something different this week other than that bland chicken breast!
