Start With Oysters
Oysters are a well-known aphrodisiac, and each one can contain up to 2g of protein! They’re also low in fat and calories.
If you’re cutting, serve them raw with hot sauce, lemon juice and a little shallot vinaigrette!
If you’re bulking, make Oysters Rockefeller to add some extra fats:
In a pan, saute half an onion in ¼ cup of butter. Add in ½ cup of grated parmesan cheese, a squeeze of lemon juice and a pinch of black pepper. Lastly add 4oz of baby spinach and stir until wilted.
Top 2 dozen oysters with your sauted mixture, and bake at 450F for 6-8 minutes.
Make Steak for Main
If you’re cutting, choose a sirloin tip side (27g protein per 100g), top round (27.5g protein per 100g) or bottom round (28g protein per 100g). These are the leanest cuts with best fat to protein ratio.
Serve it with roasted tomatoes and mushrooms to keep both carbs and fats low.
If you’re bulking, choose a porterhouse (24g protein per 100g), filet mignon (26g protein per 100g) or skirt steak (26g protein per 100g).
Serve yours with homemade fries and some buttered greens.
Serve a Light Dessert
Swap ice cream for frozen yogurt. Half a cup typically contains 4 grams of protein and 2 gram of fat. Some brands are packed with up to 17g of sugar per serving though, so make sure to choose a low sugar brand to meet your macros.
If you’ve got carbs left, choose toppings like baked peaches or pears, fresh berries and chocolate chips.
If you’ve got fats left to enjoy, top yours with crushed nuts, peanut butter, or keto chocolate brownie pieces!
