Ryan is gearing up for our holiday and can get

a bit regimented about his workouts and diet

he follows the typical chicken and broccoli rule

that a lot of fitness people do (not me!)


They seem to live on chicken and broccoli

which is usually steamed and divided into tubs

to last throughout the day


Now, I do the cooking at home, I’m not a big fan

of either so at the weekend I came up with a couple

different ways to cook it so that


1 you still get all the nutrients

2 it tastes good and not bland


and I will share them with you today


but first, why chicken and broccoli?

well chicken is a lean protein

and broccoli is a superfood carbohydrate

and together, with a little oil they make a balanced

meal for someone looking to drop bodyfat



My favourite!

Roast a chicken as normal, when it’s ready take it

out to cool and place broccoli florets over half a roasting

pan and carrots cut into sticks over the other half.

Sprinkle some chopped garlic and olive oil over the

veggies and roast for 20-30 minutes


They should be ready by the time the chicken has cooled

and been carved – serve!


Stir Fry

cut chicken breasts into thin strips and sir fry until white

meanwhile blanch the broccoli and let it cool

add the broccoli to the chicken with some chopped red

chillies, garlic, soy sauce and chopped cashews

stir fry for a few more mins – serve!


Both recipes are dead easy to make

and you don’t have to be a body builder to enjoy them

just slot them into your week


a good soup would be nice too, if anyone has a recipe?




p.s. after yesterdays email I’m thinking of getting a smoking cessation person in at the studio if anyone is interested? Nearly all of my clients are non smokers but I think it might be an idea as a drop in?
