CARBOHYDRATE SOURCE: QUINOA
Getting ample starchy carbohydrates first thing in the morning and in the 3-4 hours following your training session is an essential strategy for getting the calories your need and putting those calories to work building muscle instead of having them pad your waistline.
A grain originally from South America, quinoa can be eaten warm or cold, for breakfast (like oatmeal), lunch, or dinner. Quinoa has a higher than usual protein content for a grain and one serving also packs 33% of your daily zinc needs, a nutrient essential for optimal testosterone.
