Summer is practically on top of us, so hopefully you've been working out regularly, at least if you want that beach body. So many of us do, and we put ourselves through grueling workouts in order to attain that figure. Unfortunately, many people forget a crucial step—eating healthy. There's a reason you constantly hear people saying, “Abs are made in the kitchen.” If you want a great summer body, you have to pay attention to what you're eating. And that's tough if you happen to be a picky eater, because zucchini may be great for you, but taste-wise, not so much. Picky eater or not, you can still eat healthy and get that beach body you're looking for.
Lemon Grilled Chicken Breasts
As long as you have chicken breasts, you'll have some options for yourself or another picky eater. Seriously, they have plenty of protein and you can dress them up, or down, depending on how picky people are. Serve it with some brown rice and plain green beans, and you've got yourself a meal that you don't have to pick around. Just make sure nothing touches on your plate.
Again, eggs have the protein and nutrients you need if you're working out for swimsuit season. On top of that, baked eggs and whole grain toast is the perfect breakfast combo for a picky eater who doesn't want all the extras. Add an orange or banana, and you've got all the energy you need to start your day off right.
Spaghetti and Meatballs
We know that pasta is verboten to some during summer because of all those carbs, but bear with us here. Try mixing up diced red peppers and zucchini in the meatballs, using lean ground beef, and you won't even notice that the veggies are in there. Plus, you don't have to eat this one every day if you're looking for a six-pack. Just know that it's a healthy and delicious option that any picky eater can stomach.
It's actually much easier than you'd imagine to prepare your own breaded fish sandwich, and doing it yourself is so much healthier than driving through your local Captain D's. Try making it even healthier by adding some cucumber slices and cabbage slaw if your palate can handle it.
Pinto Bean and Rice Burritos
The word “burrito” probably doesn't conjure up images of tanned, toned bodies in your head, but burritos are the same as the fish sandwiches—they can actually be good for you if you make them correctly. Instead of beef, use pinto beans and brown rice, add plenty of lettuce, and try salsa and peppers if you dare. Seriously, they make it a lot better.
Of course, there's another option that's healthy, delicious, and easy no matter where you are or how much time you have - a Promax protein bar! No one's saying you should eat them for every meal, but if your options are your friend's “super healthy surprise” or the protein bar, then just know that our protein bars taste great to even the pickiest of eaters.
