High-protein dinners to eat after a late workout

Chicken fajitas

So, I typically train in the evening after work, which often means my last meal is at 9 pm or later- eek! So for those of you, who are looking for some late-night lighter dinner options to eat after a late workout, check these out:

1. Paleo Chicken Wraps

This is one of my most-visited recipes on my site and for good reason. It’s healthy, light and so easy to make. You can find the recipe here.

2. Spicy Turkey Mince

Another go-to for me- easy to throw together and is kind of a ‘leftovers in the fridge’ kind of meal, which is ideal for the day before your weekly shop. Find my recipe here.

3. Turkey Sausages with Veggie Mash

This is my healthier take on the traditional British favourite- Bangers & Mash. I swap my sausages for turkey sausages (grilled) and the mash I use is Mash Direct turnip, parnsip & carrot it’s so good. I simply add some real butter, sauteed red onion and some pepper and salt. Oh and a little splash of milk!

4. Chicken Stir-fry

Again, another easy peasy recipe that I go back to time and time again. I recently wrote a post for the boys at The Edge: Clontarf on this actually- you can find the recipe here.

5. Burrito Bowl/Fajitas

A simple combination of stir-fried chicken fillets, paprika, chilli flakes, splash tamari sauce, some lime juice, garlic, fried onions, peppers and some more lime juice. Add some mash avocado as a side (made with lime juice, tomato juice & salt) and serve in a warm wrap with fresh, crunchy lettuce and a side of kidney beans (strained!). So easy and SO tasty. If you want to keep the carbs low, leave out the wrap and have a lettuce wrap instead. Or if you’d prefer some rice, simply place all the ingredients when cooked on top.
