Here's one of the meal combinations that I've seen work, utilizing simple and inexpensive ingredients. I recommend using quinoa pasta because it is high in protein, iron, and fiber. I found that, for many people, it's also much easier to digest, which is helpful when you're chowing down on pound upon pound of grub. Now, pull up a chair and grab a fork. Get ready to eat clean, eat big, and grow!
-Remove the pits from two large avocados.
-Pulse-blend the avocados, Greek yogurt, garlic, basil and juice from 1 lemon. Once blended and the texture is smooth, add salt and pepper to taste. If desired, add freshly chopped red onions.
-Boil the quinoa pasta and set aside.
-Season your chicken breast and cook in a nonstick skillet. Optional: To make the meal even heartier, add extra veggies to your pasta like bell peppers and mushrooms. Toss those in with the chicken while it cooks in the skillet.
-Mix 1/3 of the avocado pasta sauce with the quinoa pasta, and then top with grilled chicken breast.
-Add extra veggies like cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, and bell peppers. Top with 1 tbsp parmesan cheese, if desired.
