Pre-Session Meal Ideas

This ultimate combo of protein and complex carbs will give you long-lasting, even-keeled energy for up to 4 hours (if you skip the bread and other simple carbs like grits or potatoes)

Hard-boiled eggs on a bed of sautéed spinach:

What you need:

Raw Spinach

2-3 eggs

1 tblsp Olive oil

Lemon or lemon juice (optional)

Salt & pepper to taste

Cooking directions: Boil the eggs:

Place at least 2 eggs in a pot of water on high heat. Once the water begins to boil, set a timer for 7 minutes. After your 7 minutes are up, turn off the heat and remove the pot from the burner. Leave your eggs in the pot for another 3 minutes for the perfect hard-boiled eggs.

Sauté the spinach:

While your eggs are resting, sauté the spinach.

Heat a few table spoons of olive oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Throw in 2 large handfuls of raw spinach (don't worry, it'll shrink down about 1/2 cup) turn the spinach continuously until moderately wilted. Once wilted to your liking (the less - the better), turn off the heat and squeeze your preferred amount of lemon juice on the spinach.

Assemble your dish:

Spread the sautéed spinach on a plate, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Peel the eggs and slice with an egg slicer (bought mine cheap at Wal-Mart) and arrange the egg slices in whatever shape makes you happy. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Yummm!

Egg Frittata on a bed of Mixed Greens

What you need:

Mixed baby greens

1/2 to 3/4 cup of eggbeaters or 2 to 3 eggs scrambled

1 tsp Olive oil,

1 tsp butter

1/8 cup Frozen seasoning blend

3 or 4 slices of Hormel Natural Ham chopped

Choice of cheese

Salt & pepper to taste

Cooking directions:


Place greens on a small plate or shallow bowl and chop with kitchen scissors. Top with

your preferred cheese, or none at all. (All I had was some fat-free american slices, but my favorite is dollops of cream cheese).

Next, chop your ham or whatever type of meat you like - of course, you can forego the meat.

Chop your onions, bell pepper, etc. I keep a bag of seasoning blend in my freezer and use a half a handful unthawed.


Heat a small omelet pan over medium-high heat. Add oil and a bit of butter and throw in the seasoning blend and cook till you're content with the look of it. Add the ham and sauté a bit more.

Make the frittata:

Reduce heat to medium and pour in the eggs. Lift the cooked edges and tilt the pan to run the uncooked eggs underneath until the eggs are set. Then FLIP IT! Good luck. Cook the other side for about 1 minute more.

Assemble your dish:

Flip the frittata on top of your prepared mixed greens and cheese, sprinkle with salt and pepper, garish with parsley. The warm frittata will slightly wilt the greens and melt the cheese. It's easier to eat with a fork and knife. I hope you like it!
