The first thing to remember about supplements is that they should only be used to supplement good nutrition, regular exercise and a good recovery strategy. My first recommendation for 'supplements' is to eat real foods and to work on getting a good sleep ritual.
There are so may supplements out there, some good, some bad, some work, some don't. Of course there are many supplements out there that are good.
Before I use or recommend a supplement I research it and look for independent studies that back up the proclaimed benefits. A lot of supplement companies will hold their own 'studies' so you have to be cautious of this.
Here are 10 supplements that I know do work and that I take or have taken myself.
Stop guessing & start progressing!
This makes a great lunch or dinner...
You have a good mix of 'smart' carbs, protein, fats and veggies. There's nothing like a good kick of chilli to rev-up the metabolism! (as always...it's optional 😗 ) 👇 WATCH SHORT CLIP BELOW 👇
What you need.
(For 2 people)
✔️ 2 medium/large sweet potatoes
✔️ 6 pieces of smoked streaky bacon (trim the fat if you like)
✔️ 1 large onion
✔️ 2 cupped hands of feta cheese
✔️ 1 pack of tender stem broccoli (220g)
✔️ Rape seed oil (I used Lemon infused)
✔️ Crushed chilli flakes
How to do it.
➖ Preheat oven to 200c
➖ Get a pan of boiling water going
➖ Pearce sweet potatoes several times and microwave for 2-3 mins on each side
➖ Put potatoes in oven for approx 10-15 minutes to finish
➖ Chop onion and bacon finely and sauté in a pan until onions are soft and bacon starts to get a little crispy (the fat from the bacon should be enough, otherwise a drop of healthy oil)
➖ Boil the broccoli to your liking (I have to have mine 'al dente')
➖ To serve, slice the potato in two, put the bacon and onion on top, crumble your feta, drizzle your oil then add your crushed chilli to finish
