Lean Beef

Lean beef is an ideal source of protein, and stir-frying is a quick and easy cooking method. Healthy carbohydrates from rice, and fiber from fresh veggies make this meal perfect after a strength workout. Consuming 20 to 30 grams post-exercise is plenty, and this recipe puts you right in that zone with 24.4 grams.
