Striving to gain muscle mass is a worthy goal! But to get fit in a healthy manner, you have to give your body what it needs to grow and get strong. Use these protein-packed recipes to gain muscle mass:
1. Spicy Turkey Soup
For this recipe, grab your slow cooker. Toss in cooked turkey breast and a bunch of diced peppers. For more spice, choose hotter peppers. Add in chicken or turkey broth and cook over low heat for 6 to eight hours.
An hour before serving, add in extra broth, cooked rice, beans, and a touch of sharp cheese. Season to taste and enjoy the warm up in your mouth before you hit the gym.
2. Meat-Loaded Omelet
Whip together a couple of eggs and get your omelet started in the skillet.
Mix cooked meat, such as ground turkey or shredded beef, with a little cheese and some veggies. The more meat, the better!
Add the meat blend to one half of the stiffening egg and flip to form a classic half-moon omelet shape. Cook egg through and voila! You have all the protein of the meat and the cheese tucked inside the high-protein egg. It’s light, delicious, and packed with powerful nutrients.
3. Three-Meat Burger Stack
What could be better than three different types of burgers stacked on top of each other? Make three burgers, one turkey, one beef, and chicken. It’s best if the patties are thin. Stack on top of each other with a layer of cheese between each patty and enjoy. You’ll have more than enough protein and flavor, even with very little seasoning!
4. Meat and Bean Chili A classic all year round, this recipe is easy to make and nutritious too. Simply brown meat before mixing with beans, seasoning, and a little tomato sauce. Choose meats that are loaded with protein, such as turkey, chicken, or beef. As much as possible, avoid adding excessive amounts of bacon or sausage, as they are fattier and offer fewer beneficial nutrients.
