Muscle Building Mish Mosh Recipe

Hi, Shane here. Yeah, I usually hand off any good recipes I get to my assistant Carol for her Friday’s post, but since she’s already got one up today I’ll share another real quick.

This recipe comes from a reader who was kind enough this week to send me an email sharing it. I thought it was a good one so I wanted to post.

As you probably know I’m a promoter of a Primal Blueprint type diet. Sometimes this gets interpreted the wrong way with those assuming I’m a strict follower of Paleo principals.

While Primal Blueprint foods make up the large bulk of my diet, I also include some grains and starches. The reason….I tend to fare well with some rice, sweet potatoes, potatoes, etc, in my diet because of a fast metabolism, high insulin sensitivity, and elevated energy demands from high-intensity training.

As I’ve stated in previous posts I believe a large part of dietary choices comes down to personal tolerances with foods that may have an irritant/allergen effect along with bioindividuality factors (metabolism, genetics, insulin sensitivity, etc).

Each person has to experiment to see what works best for them. For me building lean muscle (a primary goal with my fitness training) is best accomplished with the inclusion of energy dense starches on occasion. That makes this recipe right up my alley.

Here are the ingredients for the “Muscle Building Mish Mosh”…

  • Browned lean turkey breast or ground beef
  • Brown rice
  • 3-4 tbsp of Egg Beaters (to add consistency to the rice)
  • Fresh or canned tomatoes
  • Green or red bell peppers
  • Carrots
  • Jalapenos (optional if you like a little kick)
  • Cilantro
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Organic seasoning of choice

Obviously the variations of this dish are endless, after all it is a “mish mosh.” The idea is that it can be made in bulk quantities and kept in the fridge to eat on throughout the week.

The recipe includes all the key components for building muscle (protein, energy dense carbs, and a wide variety of vegetables).

I’m going to experiment with this dish next week and see how it goes. I’m thinking of browning the ground turkey or beef and cooking the rice first then throwing everything together in a crock pot to let slow cook for several hours. I’m a big fan of using the crock pot for things like this.

Remember, preparation is the name of the game. Making dishes in bulk quantities is one of the best ways to be prepared when you’ve got a busy schedule.

Hope you enjoy!
