Simple easy meals are what I usually go for since I cook for just myself. This one is a favorite of mine, and I almost always have romaine or red leaf lettuce on hand.
It’s a simple wrap without the grains, which I find unnecessary in the processed form, for the most part.
So what do you need?
Romaine leaves? Check.
Something to fill them with? Check. I used sauteed onion, green pepper and chicken livers (yum!).
Wrap ‘em up and enjoy!
Lifting Gains: lots of increases! I’m excited! I’ve only been doing my main lifts (no accessory lifting) the past couple weeks because of my rotations. I think the rest and just working on strength has helped with the hypertrophy sets. :)

I’ve increased my food intake and am watching my macros via fitday.com. I also love this site because I can see what vitamins and minerals I’m lacking in for the day as well as my macro balace. I think it’s really important for anyone doing athletic activity to make sure you’re properly fueled, pre- and post-workout.
Anyone have any fitness PRs lately – lifting gains, faster speed, or longer mileage?
