The Perfect Recovery Meal

Recovery Meal, Ground Lamb, Lentils, StewSo, 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.
