Tony’s healthy recipe ideas are designed to minimise effort and time and maximise nutrition.
The idea is simplicity.
Online recipes are often complicated and require a food bank of ingredients. Plus, they often take hours of preparation and cooking. These quick simple recipes are developed for a healthy sustainable eating plan which are low calorie and packed full of protein.
By replacing some of the carbohydrates and fats with protein, you can boost satiety.
Protein intake reduces ghrelin (the hunger hormone). And protein boosts the levels of peptide YY, a hormone that makes you feel full.
MUSCLE MASS AND STRENGTH
Don’t worry. You’re not going to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger!
However, eating adequate amounts of protein can help maintain muscle and supports growth from strength training.
A combination of resistance training and protein intake supports bone mass as we age and can help to lower the risk of osteoporosis and fractures.
When you consume protein, the thermic effect is much higher than carbohydrates and fats. Protein has a thermic effect of 20-35% compared to 5-15% for carbohydrates and fats.
This thermic effect can increase your metabolism and a higher metabolism will burn more calories at rest and during activity.
