Recipe of the Week: Apple Cheddar Panini

Written by:
Recipe of the Week: Apple Cheddar Panini

This simple, fast, and really tasty recipe is perfect for when you’re lounging around the house and want some food, but don’t want to have to whip up a whole meal.

Ezekiel bread makes this simple meal especially tasty, and if you can get them, try honeycrisp apples.

Fat Per Serving

7 grams


8 slices whole grain bread

4 tablespoons low-fat honey mustard

2 apples, thinly sliced

8 ounces low-fat cheddar cheese, thinly sliced


If you have a panini press or countertop grill, preheat on medium heat. If not, coat a skillet in cooking spray and place over medium heat.

Spread 1 tablespoon of the honey mustard evenly over each slice of bread, then evenly divide the apple slices and cheese to make 4 sandwiches.

Place on the skillet and top with a lid or something to press down on sandwich. Cook for 2 – 3 minutes and flip, apply a fresh coat of cooking spray when flipping.


What You Get to Eat


What did you think of this week’s recipe? Let me know in the comments below!

I'm Mike and I'm the creator of Muscle for Life and Legion Athletics, and I believe that EVERYONE can achieve the body of their dreams.

If you like what I have to say, sign up for my free newsletter and every week I'll send you awesome, science-based health and fitness tips, delicious "diet-friendly" recipes, motivational musings, and more.


What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?

What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?

What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.

And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.

Well, I have good news.

All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.

You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.

And this book will show you the way.
