Here is an easy, lower carb post training meal. It uses za’taar, a Middle Eastern spice blend that can be found at ethnic markets. Za’taar is worth the trouble to find!
Prep time: 5 minutes
Coking time: 35 minutes
• 1 lb chicken breast, diced
• 2 cups diced acorn squash
• 2 tsp coconut oil
• 3 Tbsp za’taar
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Halve and seed the squash, then chop into a small dice. Dice the chicken.
Add all of the ingredients to a baking dish. Cover and bake for 35 minutes, mixing occasionally. Cool and serve, or bring it to the gym.
If you make a batch of this, you can have your post training meals covered for a few days. Modify the ratio of chicken to squash to meet your individual needs. For those needing higher carbs post training, this recipe works with yams as well.
