::recipe::

This next recipe is super easy and I am sure quite healthy by the looks of it.
It's definitely a meal that is very quick to make when you are having a busy work week.
And what's even better is that it has both protein and carbs to maximize fat burning and boost metabolism!
Remember, when you eat carbs on their own it spikes your blood sugar level while when eating carbs with protein, your body needs to break down the protein into amino acids.
It basically keeps you fuller, longer!
So anyways...
Bon Appetit!
