30 Minute Meals For The Busy Athlete
It's back!! This series first began with my Crockpot Recipes for the Busy Athlete, followed by One Skillet Recipes for the Busy Athlete. This time, I'm sharing a new collection of healthy recipes that can all be prepped, cooked, and ready to eat in 30 minutes or less!
I get it – between training, work, class, more training – your time is limited. So to make your lives easier, I've gathered 37 recipes thanks to my fellow dietitians and food bloggers. These recipes require little effort, 30 minutes (or less!), and you can rest assured you’ll be eating a nutritious meal!
Start each morning with a nutritious breakfast that can be prepped and ready to go in under 30 minutes! Have less than a minute in the mornings? Try the overnight oats for grab & go!
