BRO MEAL #2 – The Big Salad

Today’s bro meal receipe is inspired by the “big salad” Seinfeld episode.

Because, see, if you’re going to make a salad a bro meal, you have to make sure it’s got the nutrients you need to fuel muscle growth. A few lettuce leaves, a cherry tomato, 1/2 a chicken breast, and some fat free dressing ain’t going to cut it. We need an actual, substantial meal that is going to fuel us up, and give us some energy to power through the day. Check it out:
