The Perfect Recovery Meal
So, what should we consider for a good Recovery Meal? My latest hankerin’ was for Moroccan Flavors after a hard workout. So, for my recovery meal, I decided that I was going to do a FAST 30-minute experiment with my pressure cooker and made another tasty and awesome meal packed with good protein that will last for a few days (aka #BachelorStyle) when I want it Quick. There’s nothing like coming home with a calorie deficit to a fridge full of Recovery Meals in Quart Containers.
Notice the quart bottle of organic lemon juice? Remember a while back about the Lemon Water? I’ve been loving this addition to my morning routines and evenings too since I don’t consume alcoholic beverages unless I’m in a social occasion, I’m hydrating with fun bright flavors that I’m trying out.
A Major Breakthrough
Along the way, as I was reading thru some Moroccan and Middle Eastern recipes, I discovered that there are only a few basic spices in every dish. Eureka! I am now empowered to follow and satisfy my Middle Eastern food cravings. #Sweet!
- Ground Ginger
- Red Pepper Crushed

- Bake 400F for one hour
- Put bones in pressure cooker with enough water to cover bones

The Ground Lamb Stew
- In the pressure cooker, brown a half-pound to a pound of ground lamb
- With large Chopped Onions
- Add spices and cook with browning meat
- Add about a cup of Lentils (less or more)
- Add Chickpeas or any Pantry Beans (white, navy, pinto, etc.)
- 28oz canned tomatoes (quality makes a difference)

Just remember, it’s a stew. It’s not Rocket Surgery; there is no correct or wrong way to make this. It’s all up to how you like your tastes. Enjoy
