    Have you tried “The 7 Day Basket” by Ian Haste? It has the most amazing recipes in there!

    @plzacate28 I recommend building a meal plan with each meal having a balance of protein, carbs and fats in appropriate amounts for your body and that you personally see as sustainable.

    Stick with basics like...
    Carbs: potatoes, rice, bread, cereal, etc.
    Protein: chicken, steak, turkey, eggs, egg whites, etc.
    Fats: oil, cheese, nuts, nut butters, etc.

    Meal timing and frequency is going to depend on what is easiest for you to get in your calories/macros.

    There are some great ideas in this youtube series:

    Personally would limit fats pre and post workout, move them to different meals and prioritise carbs/protein pre and post

    Probably won’t make a massive difference as a beginner, but could certainly help to maximise gains
