It's time to lay down the spatulas, turn off the oven, unplug the food processor, and turn off the dishwasher. That's right: It's time to unveil the winning dish of the #FitMenCookoff. Among all the delicious stuffed meats, handmade tostadas, munch-worthy fritters, easy-to-eat rolls, and tangy dressings, one dish stood apart.
The winner of the challenge is Savory Chicken Meatballs with Zucchini Pasta and Marinara Sauce, and a fully-loaded twice-baked sweet potato by Joseph, aka @cookeatlift!
I was drawn to the simplicity of this stellar dish. It's healthy fare that turns a muscle-building staple on its head without being overly complicated. The chicken breast meatballs are a great alternative to a lone piece of dry chicken breast, and the twice-baked potato with apples provides a sweet take on a complex carb. This meal is also extremely versatile and can be easily adjusted for both low- and high-calories diets. Going low-carb? Ditch the potato. Looking to bulk up and add on some lean muscle mass? Go all-out and enjoy! Boom.
I've recreated Joseph's meal below but made it "meal-prep ready" with a few tweaks to save you some time in the kitchen! Congrats, Joseph, and to all of you that submitted amazing recipes.
