Recipe of the Week: Lean and Mean Zucchini Hash

Recipe of the Week: Lean and Mean Zucchini Hash

I love this recipe from my cookbook, The Shredded Chefbecause it’s quick, tasty, and low-calorie.

It’s almost like a lean “side dish” for breakfast that can be paired with something else like sweet potato protein pancakes or a breakfast pita wrap.

And if you’re cutting, a double portion of this recipe gives you a great, low-carb, moderate-fat breakfast.

Heat a pan on high and then lower to medium heat.

Spray some cooking spray into the pan and spoon the mixture into it. Cook about 5 minutes and flip. Cook another 5 minutes.

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.

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.

    I love this recipe! I make it every week in a loaf (8 eggs) as a snack, lunch or dinner. You can add anything you like – grated carrot, capsicum, kale, etc etc… I also include turkey mince or other meat to provide some protien… One of the best recipes 🙂

      Cut it up on small bite sized pieces of course! Don’t eat the whole thing at once… Although sometimes very hard to stop :p
