Eating protein at regular intervals through the day is essential to building muscle and eggs are a great source of both protein and good fats.
An omelette is a quick and simple dish to cook at any time and will supply enough protein to support muscle growth. A frittata is a great option to cook eggs in bulk and use as a snack throughout the day. New potatoes will provide energy for training and the spinach is a source of iron and calcium to support training.
Benefits: Increase muscle mass.
Ingredients: Serves 4
- 10 eggs
- 75g feta
- ½ bag baby spinach leaves, washed
- 2 medium potatoes, peeled, diced and cooked
- Pinch of salt and pepper
Heat a sauce pan over a medium heat and add the oil and spinach leaves along with a pinch of salt and pepper. The spinach will cook very quickly.
Once the spinach has wilted remove from the pan into a colander and leave to drain.
Meanwhile crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk with a pinch of salt and pepper. In a medium sized oven proof sauté pan place the spinach and potato and crumb over the feta.
Now pour over the egg and place the pan into a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until the egg mix is cooked and serve.
