Yeah, boiled, whatever. I mean, that's going to get real boring, real quick. You'll have to start experimenting with spices you like. Throw them over some kale or spinach and make a salad out of them. Throw in basically any and every vegetable you like or have on hand. You obviously have the internet, so Google your ass off looking for recipes that appeal to you. A word of advice: try to keep it simple; otherwise, you'll start to slack-off because it'll be too time consuming. A great way is to find stew-like recipes or big pot recipes. Then you can make two at the beginning of the week and alternate them so you don't burn out.

Keep at it! What do you normally eat before a workout, just thinking whether an apple is quite enough?

Good to see you back in action, colds are a real pain. You have much planned for the weekend?
