Greens & Ham Breakfast Bowls (keto)

Image
INGREDIENTS8-10 ounces ham, diced or turkey ham or steak if you try not to eat pork1 large bunch swiss chard, chopped1/2 red onion, sliced thin1 teaspoon olive oil1 avocado, sliced2 soft-boiled eggsHot sauceSalt and pepper Ingredients There is really only a few ingredients in this bowl. You could, of course, add other veggies, but I recommend going heavy on the greens. If you don’t have any swiss chard, you could use kale or just a metric ton of spinach. Just get it in there.
Three ingredient bowls! This is the amount of chard I used for one serving. It’s about 3 cups of chopped chard. I cut off the very thick stems but left the thinner parts of the stem. They give some nice texture to the bowl.

A quick chop! Cooking the Dish This is pretty straightforward to make. If you use a large skillet and start the heat on medium-low you don’t actually need to add any oil to the pan. The ham has plenty of fat and will do just fine without oil. If your ham is very lean or something though you m…

Lemon Herb Sauce

Image
Ingredients: 2 Tablespoons chopped parsley2 Tablespoons chopped mint1/4 cup pistachio nuts, chopped1/4 cup lemon juice (about 1 lemon)1/4 cup olive oil1/8 teaspoon sea salt Directions: Chop the parsley, mint and pistachios. Combine in a small bowl with the sea salt.Squeeze the juice from one lemon (~1/4 cup) into the bowl, being careful to catch the seeds. I squeeze the lemon into my cupped hand, letting the juice strain through my fingers.Slowly drizzle in the olive oil and whisk at the same time.Serve with meat or veggies of your choice. Will keep refrigerated for 1-2 days but is best used fresh because of the herbs.

Abs & Upper Body

Image
Supersets are an awesome time saving way to get in an incredibly effective workout. In this routine we're going to be giving the upper body muscles a break by working our abs and obliques. With a typical strength training routine, there's often an extended rest period for the muscle groups you're working - anywhere from 1-5 minutes in between sets (depending on what your goals are). Aside from my short attention span and the fact that if I gave myself 1-3 minutes in between strength sets I would get distracted and move onto some other project, I also have a heavy workload and busy life, and don't necessarily always have the time to wait that long in between sets. That's why I love supersets. They allow you to stay active throughout your entire training session, using the rest period of one muscle group to train the other, and vice versa. These are some of my favorite upper body exercises. The combination thoroughly targets the entire upper body; shoulders, triceps,…
