This is one of my favorite Beauty Bowls! It’s quick & easy (if you are prepared!)
4 oz. of Prepared Grilled Flank Steak
3 oz. of Sweet Potato
First, for the Flank Steak, you can grill on an outdoor grill, or if you’re short on time, the steak can also be pan seared. Lightly spray the grill or pan with olive oil. I always grill up my proteins for at least a 3 day supply.
Sweet Potatoes can be peeled, cubed sprinkled with a little water and cooked in a shallow glass dish covered in the microwave
Brussels sprouts can be lightly steamed in the microwave. Just place 4 sprouts in a microwave safe glass dish with a little bit of water and cover with a lid. Microwave ovens do vary, so 1-2 minutes and check for doneness. I like mine to be firm, not mushy.
Add a bit of spice with Mrs. Dash, garlic or onion powders & dash of black pepper!
Flank steak is an excellent source of protein and supplies 15 percent of your daily iron intake.
Sweet potatoes can help your skin stay clear, smooth and young-looking. They are rich in fiber and beta-carotene. Beta-carotene is a vitamin A source which fights free radicals, helps balance pH and encourages skin cell turnover, both of which can mean smoother, softer skin. Sweet potatoes are also rich in vitamin C, another skin-friendly nutrient that can combat aging and dryness.
Brussels sprouts are nutritious and should be considered in weight reduction programs. They not only fill you up, they have antioxidants and packed with vitamin C, A, E & K, to name a few. Mom was right, eat ’em!
I would eat this meal post workout. It’s packed with protein and nutrient dense carbohydrates. Carbs will be used by your body to restore muscle glycogen that was depleted while you worked out. If your post workout meal doesn’t contain carbs, your body may actually instead break down muscle tissue for this same purpose. Carbs also create an insulin spike which helps to move nutrients into your muscle tissue quicker.
