I am a medical microbiologist who loves delicious food, writing and lists. :)

I don’t know if it’s just a trend, but I hope this protein-rich lifestyle trend lasts more than a few years. Apparently, we were not eating enough protein to nourish our bodies for decades. Adults need around 50g of protein every day, and pregnant ladies should consume about 71g. To be honest, with my love of carbs, I am not sure I get to fulfill the requirements every day. At the same time, I do admit that eating more protein keeps me fuller for longer and makes me feel healthier overall. So, I started to research some anabolic recipes to include in my diet.

Apart from Remington James recipes, Will Tennyson recipes and Josh Cortis recipes, there are many other people sharing delicious ideas for us to try.

What are anabolic recipes?

By “anabolic recipes” we generally understand recipes that have a high protein and low carbohydrate content. This composition aims at providing “fuel” for anabolism, meaning the process by which the body utilizes the energy released by catabolism to synthesize complex molecules. So, by fueling these processes we help our body build itself. There are many types of anabolic diets, but people who do not plan to go on a diet do not have to follow them. However, this doesn’t mean we cannot enjoy a delicious high-protein recipe whenever we want to ;).
