Hunter Labrada’s Most Favorite Meal-Prep Recipes

When I’m feeding my muscles, I need to keep my diet clean. But that doesn’t mean my meals have to be bland. Here are a few quick meal-preps that I like to do. They fill me up, provide me with the macros I need to achieve my goals, and they taste really good.

When it comes to meat selections, don’t be fooled by marketing tricks written on the label. Words like “lean” or “94% fat-free” can be misleading. Always look at the nutrition facts panel. Read what the calories from fat are to get a better idea of what the actual fat content is.
