This is one of my all-time favorites. My “go-to” meal when company’s coming over. The one I freeze and take to a friend who needs an extra meal.

And, it delivers the spicy nutrients healthy athletes can use for overall health and a fiery metabolism:

My experience working with Kelli @ Apex Nutrition has been nothing but positive. Through the use of Kelli’s services, I have been able to make some key changes to the way I eat on a daily basis and I have lost several pounds as a result. In addition to making better daily nutrition choices, Kelli
I started my coaching plan with Kelli to improve my overall nutrition and fueling at the beginning of my training season, and what a journey. In a period of 10 months I not only lost about 30 lb and 4 percent of body fat, but also with her extremely valuable weekly feedback I could keep
