Buddha Bowl With Flank Steak and Cashew Sauce



Cooking Tip: Having some Vitamin C before your main meals will help the absorption of iron and protein. This could come in the form of a squeeze of citrus in water, some strawberries or even just a vitamin C supplement.

Training Tip: How often are you sore after training? If never, it's probably time you step up your game. Your brain might be saying your having enough but your body has a lot more to give. Get after it.

Mindset Tip: Change requires conscious effort...Without effort there will never be a change. Plan, prepare and execute your goals.
