Well-filled protein salad with chickpeas

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

A friend of mine recently asked me if I could think of some more dishes that are suitable for athletes. I actually thought that was a nice idea, but I have to say that I have no training or background as a nutritionist. I've tried different things over time in terms of exercise and nutrition, and I've also seen different results with different strategies and diets. But that doesn't mean that I know exactly what you should or shouldn't eat as an athlete. Still, I wanted to please my friend and that's why I wrote down a recipe for a tasty and protein-rich salad here. protein salad healthy

An egg is part of it right?!

For those who want to calculate exactly how many calories that is and how many grams of fat, etcetera, I refer to the various health apps. Furthermore, it is just a very tasty salad and you should above all enjoy your food. Moderation….

Eating like this isn't bad at all...

I have noticed that I lose weight better when I eat less sugar and carbohydrates. I also don't drink alcohol anymore, which I never thought I could do before. But my main goal is now no longer just to get rid of those excess kilos. Above all, I want to feel good in my own body and take on the sporting challenges that I have devised for myself.

And that means I have to change my whole way of life and not just be very hard on myself for a few weeks, and then fall back into old habits once the scale shows the desired number. I want to make a lasting change that is good for my health and my happiness.

Add a cube of cheese and a few pieces of bacon.

A more conscious lifestyle, being busy with healthy food, enjoying sports, looking for challenges to keep it interesting, that's the most important thing for me. And that a slimmer body also seems to be part of that….. that's just a plus!
