Champion Nutrition Recipe of the Week - Eat Your Veggies!

Here's an easy all-purpose mix you can make at the beginning of the week and use in most anything. You can put it in peppers for a quick stuffed pepper, or add an egg or two for a speedy breakfast, top mushrooms with it, make lettuce wraps, top a salad... and so much more! Packed full of athlete-friendly veggies, this power protein mix will fill you up while helping you nurture those hard earned muscles.

Chelle's Power Protein & Veggie Mix
Here, I added 2 eggs and brown rice to make a muscle-building
breakfast post-workout.
makes 8 servings (based on 4 oz chicken per serving)
makes 5 servings (based on 6 oz chicken per serving)

2 lb ground chicken breast, raw
1 zucchini
1 package baby bella crimini (brown) mushrooms
1 bell pepper (any color or combination of colors)
1 small onion (*optional)
Mrs Dash - any flavor
Cooking oil spray

Wash all vegetables.
In a food processor (or use a grater) shred the zucchini, mushrooms, and pepper.
Dice onion.
Blend together with raw ground chicken.
Spray a large skillet with oil, and cook mixture over medium high heat, seasoning with Mrs Dash to taste.
When cooked through, drain off liquid (zucchini and mushrooms have a high water content, and as they cook they'll release it).
Allow to cool, then store until needed.
