Kris C. is our Wholesale Representative for 6 Pack Fitness. Besides being completely awesome, he is a bodybuilder and currently in contest prep for a show in March!

From Kris C.:

For me I'm not just an employee for 6 Pack but I'm also a user. The food I put in my body is all precisely measured and EVERYTHING is weighed on a digital scale or measured. It's not a myth that the food you eat determines how you look, think if you had a race car would you just put regular gas in it? ...Probably not. It's impossible to outwork a bad diet in any situation. For me being outside sales and not working in an office means I don't have the ability to use a fridge. Having the Voyager Back pack allows me to bring all the work I put in the kitchen along with me for the day and all I have to do is eat when it's time. After all, nobody got time for losing gains!

Since I'm in contest prep my meals aren't anything too crazy. I prefer to keep things simple so I don't have to worry about if this seasoning has too much sodium or this one has MSG in it etc. Since I still eat a lot of food I have to be able to cook a large amount of food without having a ton of time to do it. For this Meal Prep Sunday here is my recipe for all kinds of gains:

Lemon Pepper and Garlic Grilled Chicken with sauteed Broccoli and Almonds

Ingredients:

Chicken, 10 oz per meal

Frozen Broccoli, cook up an entire package and divide

Almonds, 1 oz per meal

Bragg Liqiud Aminos, 1 Tbsp per Chicken Breast

Mrs. Dash garlic & herb, to taste preference

Salt Free Lemon -Pepper Seasoning, to taste preference

Accent Salt Free Vegetables Seasoning, to taste preference

Siracha, to taste preference

{{And don't forget to put Pandora on cause cooking is just like working out, when you need that boost to get it done a little dub-step goes a long way (or whatever your flavor is)}}

Heat up a large skillet to medium heat (I use between 4 and 5) once it's hot throw on your chicken.

Once the chicken is in the pan add on your seasoning (Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb, Liqiud Amino, lemon pepper); flip chicken every 5 mins until the chicken is fully cooked and no longer pink inside.

While that's going on get started on the other skillet to get your broccoli going, heat up the skillet to medium heat. While it's heating up measure out your amount of almonds you're going to need for the amount of meals you plan to make.

Once skillet number 2 is on point throw on your broccoli and add your almonds along with the salt free veggie seasoning and siracha. Stir it up and cover and reduce heat to a 3, come back to stir every 5-8 mins until the broccoli is soft.

All in all the chicken usually takes about 35 mins to be done (the way I like it) and the broccoli takes about 18-20.

Once everything is all done it's game time! Pull the chicken off the skillet and measure it how you need it. I use 10 oz of Chicken and 1 large scoop of broccoli per container.
