Feeding your body after a work-out

Feeding your body after a work-out

Post workout, you are hungry but you want to feel good about your workout and the food you eat. Try this delicious lemony chicken recipe for a great combination of protein and vitamins. Cheese contains a relatively high percentage of salt, which is why no additional salt is required in this dish. The juice which comes out of the lemon while baking, activates the stomach and bowel function. This helps stimulating your metabolism.

1 pepper

2 carrots

1 onion

30g parmesan or any other cheese

1 lemon

1 tablespoon herbs, e.g. thyme, rosemary, oregano (fresh or dried)

2 teaspoons rapeseed or olive oil

Cheese contains a relatively high percentage of salt, which is why no additional salt is required in this dish. The juice which comes out of the lemon while baking, activates the stomach and bowel function. This helps stimulating your metabolism.

Preparation

Season turkey or chicken breast with pepper. Cut pepper and carrots into slices. Skin onion, cut into pieces and grate cheese. Put half of the vegetables into the oven dish, put meat on top and cover with the rest of the vegetables, sprinkle with herbs and parmesan.
