Diet Friendly Recipes Even A Moron Could Make

August 07, 2015 2 min read

If you are going to be a lean, mean fitness machine, you need to be eating properly. And this means eating a well balanced diet of whole grains, fruit, vegetables, healthy fat, lean meat, and low fat dairy. But if your goal is to build lean muscle, you'll want to make sure you are getting branch chain amino acids (BCAA). Although many consider a supplement, you can get everything you need from your diet. BCAAs include valine, leucine, and isoleucine. These are only 3 of 9 essential amino acids but they are the ones you MUST get from food because your body is unable to produce them. These amino acids are key in protein synthesis and help to minimize exercise induced muscle damage. Here are some recipes that contain everything you could possibly want in a meal, including BCAAs:

Sesame Tofu, Ginger, and Scallions
