Hi loves! I hope you’re enjoying your weekend. Today I am helping out a friend of mine, Jeff, in his first bodybuilding competition. He was Corey’s college wrestling coach & we’re super close with him & his wife! He’s worked really hard so today will be a fun day with all of the friends & family coming out to support all of the competitors.
While I’m busy being a busy bee, I wanted to share a recent lunch that I’ve been enjoying lately, especially post-workout!
The other day I had a great back/bicep workout in my UA Spine Shoes that I finished with some PLATE LIFTS til’ failure. This was the day after getting home from our Maryland trip so it’s safe to say that our fridge needed restocked for sure!
I stopped by a local farm to grab some of my favorites;
- Butternut squash (new recipe coming soon!)
- Green Onion
- Honey Crisp Apples
- Organic Tofu
- Sami’s Bakery Millet & Flax Bread
- Sami’s Bakery Lentil Chips
To me, there is nothing better than that first meal you make right after grocery shopping. It’s like the possibilities are endless with your new fresh ingredients.
As I got home, starving & ready to refuel those muscles, I was in the mood to get creative in the kitchen after seeing so many posts about Tofu Scrambles!
I personally buy organic tofu so that I know my source is a trusted one. I know there is a lot of different opinions on soy, & I am not one to say this is what you should do, but I personally like incorporating in whole forms of the bean such as organic tofu, tempeh, or whole soy beans (edamame). I tend to personally stay away from more of the “processed soy” such as isolates where the soy is basically stripped down to a very condensed form. I ate a bar a few years ago that is “soy protein isolate” in it and my chest flared up with red bumps & I got super itchy. I do find that with the more whole forms of it though that my body utilizes it great & I don’t get any of those symptoms!
Again, this is MY opinion on what works best for me & my body so please #BETRUETOYOU and find what works best for you!
Anyway, back to the recipe, I basically used the same spices I do in an egg scramble such as dill, garlic, and OLD BAY (surprise surprise) to create a tofu scramble that I ended up eating for lunch in all different ways all week.
[Served up with some Sami’s Bakery Millet Bread
topped with avocado & raw kraut – purelytwins kind of combo!]
- 4 oz (or so) of Organic Firm Tofu (or any protein of choice)
- Chopped up:
- Red Onion
- 2 tsp Minced Garlic (or to taste)
- Old Bay to taste
- Dill to taste
- Fresh pepper to taste
- Topped with chopped green onion
- Spray a stove pan with oil of choice & add your veggies & garlic to “cook down” for a few minutes on medium heat.
- Once the onion is caramelized, add in your other ingredients to the pan.
- Sauté on medium heat for about 8-10 minutes until all cooked together.
- The tofu will soak up the flavors & cook up nicely in the pan.
Again, this could be done with any type of protein; eggs, chicken, seafood, etc.!
I also served some up along side some hash browns for a great post workout snack.
I get the Whole Foods brand hash browns & heat them up on the stove with some oil spray & fresh rosemary! DELISH.
Let me know if you try out the scramble idea – I’d love to hear what combo you choose!
What’s your favorite post-workout meal?
