Your PT Dinner Guest

What would you make if your personal trainer was joining you for dinner?  You would want it to be delicious, of course, but also healthy.  And you better make it filling because that guy or girl is burning a lot of calories and they will be hungry.

Your personal trainer is bound to be impressed if you dress the table with these dishes!  You know my feelings on's delicious and you can mix it with anything you like!  See the original recipe HERE.  I sauteed mine last night with red onions, mushrooms, garlic, and red/black pepper then tossed it with Parmesan cheese and toasted corn tortilla crumbs.  I paired this dish with roasted potatoes, onions and broccoli.

I tossed the potatoes with olive oil, pepper, and rosemary and baked them for 30 minutes at 400.  Then I threw some broccoli and red onions (tossed with the same ingredients as the potatoes) on the same baking sheet and roasted them all together for another 15-20 minutes.

These could both be side dishes, but why not eat them both as an entree?  Here is a challenge for you: try to eat meat-free at least 3 days a week.  You might be surprised how easy it is and how motivated you will be to eat heartier, more filling veggie dishes.  It couldn't hurt!

Combine with the following routine on your favorite cardio machine at the gym:
-5 minute warm up
-5 minutes hard
-5 minute cool down
-10 minutes hard
-5 minute cool down

What would you make if your personal trainer was coming for dinner?? Leave a comment!
