Eggs are filled with BCAA’s, proteins and vitamins. In fact, they contain more BCAA’s per gram than any other food which is why they are an awesome addition to your diet. Eggs are basically a chicken’s way of saying “screw the supps bro, start eating this stuff I just made — it’s got everything you need.” This is also the only time you should actually eat something that came out of an animal’s ass.
The bulker’s delight! High in protein, high in healthy fat and all natural. You can make it at home or buy in a jar in your local supermarket. Try mixing things up a bit and add some peanut butter to your post workout shake to add more calories but don’t overdo it. They pack a punch in that department.
Shrimps contain a high amount of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and they are very high in protein. A three ounce serving of baked or broiled shrimps contains 20 grams of protein. Which is almost as three ounces of chicken breast but shrimps are very low in calories, one medium shrimp provides about seven calories, which means a dozen add up to less than 85 calories. But before you start devouring shrimp by the metric ton you should know that they are also high in cholesterol. So if you have high cholesterol you might want to keep the shrimp intake to a minimum.
Not only is this the source of Popeye’s strength but it’s rich in more vitamins and minerals than you can name. It has a high amount of vitamins K, A, C, B2, B6, and E. It’s also rich in potassium, magnesium, folate, iron, calcium, iodine, phosphorus, copper, fiber, healthy omega-3 fats and zinc. Let’s take a look at just one of those things — Zinc. Zinc is a mineral that helps in boosting this one body hormone you might have heard of, testosterone. Popeye wasn’t crazy when he downed cans of spinach, he was a testosterone-fueled beast.
Fruits and Vegetables
Yeah, yeah…eat your fruits and veggies because of health and everything. You already know this. Fruits are high in natural vitamins and taste good. Vegetables, as you’ve seen above with spinach, are rich with lots of beneficial minerals and proteins. So, don’t be a stubborn 12-year-old and skip on your veggie side dish, eat it and ask for more.
