I have a lot of healthy recipes but they are all vegetarian.
I personally do count calories because it's the easiest thing for me with the app I have on my phone. I eat a lot of vegetables and I bulk almost everything I cook with veggies because they are high nutrition and low calorie. Also Mike and I almost never get sick. i never had a cold even once this winter and I think it's due to the vegetables since I don't take any crazy supplements or nutrition boosting shakes.
How much protein are you aiming for?
According most protein articles I've read you should be shooting for at least .75-1 gram per pound, more if you are excersizing regularly.
