Tuna, chicken and lean meat are the best sources of good quality protein that should be eaten at least twice a day for any good bodybuilding diet. The option of having fish like tuna or salmon for lunch or dinner is something that you can mix up depending how you feel.
It must be assumed that dinner will be a few hours after your workout and will be something that you have fully recovered from by taking in your post workout protein. This should be done within the 90-minute window that you have after your intense workout that you have just completed.
There are two options listed below that will give you all the good quality protein that you need with very few carbs added as you will not be using any energy after dinner and your body will still be busy repairing the damage you have done in your workout.
The first is a delicious and reduced calorie Almond and Walnut Chicken recipe giving you 32 grams of protein and only 8 grams of carbs with 15 grams of fat. You can cook a 4 oz chicken breast any way you please as long as it is not by frying.
After cooking the chicken breast you would then simply add a quarter cup of sliced almonds and a tablespoon of Wishbone Lite Raspberry Walnut Vinaigrette, added with a baked or boiled potato with the jacket on will give you a meal that your body can effectively use to help grow your muscles.
The second recipe is fish, which ideally should be a white fish like the lemon-fish which is packed with good quality protein of over 37 grams. Do not fry if you are concerned about losing fat as this will add more than double the calories compared to grilling the fish.
When the fish is cooked you then add a teaspoon of vanilla extract with half a lemon squeezed directly onto the fish. This can be had with a baked or boiled potato, which will total less than 300 calories with only 10 grams of carbs and about 10 grams of fat.
