Ask The Muscle Cook: Know Any Healthy Protein Snack Recipes?

Fitness nutrition doesn't have to be the same ol' boiled chicken breasts, baked potatoes and broccoli. I can help you turn plain and boring into amazing and delicious!
Q

I've been assigned to bring some finger food to a party. I'd like to do something other than a veggie tray. Do you have any ideas?

Parties and social gatherings are always a struggle for people trying to reach their muscle-building or fat-loss goals, especially if you party often! I always tell clients to bring healthy food with them. That way, they can have fun with their friends and family without jeopardizing their health and fitness goals.

You might also be surprised to find that your healthy alternative will be a popular option for other guests. They'll be asking you how you made your delicious snacks! The next time you're asked to bring food to a party, try one of these healthy, high-protein snacks.

Both of these make for great party trays or (scaling down the size) a great snack, perfectly suited for when you want a cheat without cheating. Strongly recommend.

8 minutes was nowhere near done for these egg bites. You'll probably have to put them in for twice as long and continue to monitor
