When becoming a personal trainer, no one warns you how scarce your time becomes. Not only has sleeping in become a luxury, but also making time for a decent meal that ISN’T a protein bar or banana like shake.

This is where food prep becomes important, and if you are like me, you hear those words and think, ‘God please don’t tell me I have to eat brown rice and chicken for the rest of my days’. Okay a tad dramatic, but in all honesty food prep can be dull and tiresome to make when restricting your cooking skills and knowledge.

And this is where UCOOK comes into play, and my meal of the hour ‘Breakfast for Dinner or Dinner for Breakfast’. It’s one of the many meals I’ve added to my eating plan, as its super adjustable to when I have time to eat.

Below is a shorten version of the recipe provided by UCOOK. For the extended version, well I guess you need to get ordering and try it out yourself!
