The folks over at Copper River in Boiling Springs invited a few of the coaches over on Wednesday to try out their "Get Fit" menu options. If you follow Paleo, Zone, Keto, Macro, etc. it will fit perfectly into your nutrition plans...especially if you don't feel like cooking or just want to get out of the house for a meal. The full "Get Fit" menu is pictured below. All of these meal options include high-quality lean proteins (flat iron steak, grilled chicken breast, and fresh salmon) served on a bed of lettuce (approximately 2.5 cups) OR 4oz of broccoli and 8oz of sweet potatoes. There is no added salt or sugar and the salads are served with non-fat balsamic vinaigrette dressing. I had the 10oz Flat Iron Steak with broccoli and the "sweets". Here was the nutritional breakdown of that meal:
"Sweets" and Broccoli
If you are more limited on your fat intake, the salmon or chicken would be about the same amount of protein with significantly less fat (they also have a 6oz option on all cuts of meat). I had some fat to spare so I went for the 10oz of red meat. I did not, however, have many carbs so spare so I was not able to take a run at their tasty beer selection...sad day.
The owner of Copper River is all about providing healthy nutrition options for us as athletes so stop dragging your macro food scale around and feeling guilty about going out to eat...hit up Copper River and ask for their "Get Fit" menu.
