Quick Easy Recipes & Quick Easy Cardio

Hey there internet folks.  I hope everyone had a lovely weekend.  For this exciting installment I would like to offer some simple solutions for quick meals and quick conditioning sessions.  One of my favorite quick meals is poor man’s chilli.

2lbs of ground beef or ground turkey (at least 90% lean), 2 cans of beans (black or kidney) rinsed in cold water, 2 cans of diced tomatoes, hot sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, oregano.

Brown the meat in a saute pan.  Add beans, tomatoes, hot sauce and seasonings.  Simmer for 15 minutes.  I usually split it into 3 servings however you could probably get more like 4.  Divide them into small tupperware containers and put them in the freezer.  There you have it.  Lots of protein and lots of fiber. 

For the quick cardio option try this:

20 seconds of burpees followed by 2o seconds of rest.  Repeat 8 times.  Have fun throwing up.

Work hard.

  1. Substituting salsa for the diced tomatoes is a pretty good option too because the salsa is already seasoned.
