Champion Nutrition Recipe of the Week - Training Friendly Marinades!

Here we are just days away from The Arnold Sports Festival, along with tons of Spring shows... if you're training and dieting down, chances are your diet is getting tighter - and tighter. The list of allowed foods is shrinking. Your meals are shrinking. And flavor is becoming something of the past. NOT necessarily!! While I can't expand your plate ;-)  I can definitely help you out with the flavor issue.

  2. I am ALWAYS looking for ways to make marinades at home so I don't have to buy the garbage at the store. I'll definitely have to try these out and report back. My go-to seems to always be lemon and garlic, but I'm getting pretty sick of it.
