EXPERT Eat Like A MacroMan BY ANGIE FENTON | COURTESY PHOTOS Healthy eating doesn't have to mean sacrificing taste, especially when you're following a recipe by an expert like Pasha Volokh, owner of MacroMan Meals, a locally-owned custom meal-prep service. Pasha, an NPC bodybuilder, started the business "with the goal of helping and educating the public about the importance of proper nutrition in order to reach their goals. MacroMan Meals helps you achieve optimal fitness and health goal through healthy, nutritious meals set up for your individual metabolism and body," whether you're seeking weight loss or are training for an Ironman. MacroMan has a scrumptious menu that includes entrees like Parsley Alaskan Salmon, Cajun Pulled Chicken, Onion Sautéed Brussel Sprouts and Light Cheddar Baked Potato, though they also offer much more. Pasha was kind enough to share this simple but delicious recipe for Teriyaki Chicken, which was met with rave reviews here at Extol Sports. Don't want to do the (minimal) work yourself? Contact Pasha at www.macromanmeals.com or 502.855.0945. Teriyaki Chicken INSTRUCTIONS Marinate 2 lbs. of chicken for 24 hours in low sodium teriyaki marinade. After chicken has marinated, turn the heat on the grill to medium (clean the grill if needed). Diamond the chicken breast on each side for 3 minutes (this creates a visual grid on the meat for presentation). Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the breasts on the cooking sheet and fold the top of the sheet. This will ensure the moisture stays in and the chicken will remain juicy. Cook on 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Bring 2 cups of water to boil and add 1 cup of basmati rice. Use a frying pan to stir fry the frozen veggies with 3 tablespoons of soy sauce. Once the chicken and rice are cooked, serve the chicken on the bed of basmati rice and stir fry vegetables.
