Think “fast food” equals junk? These recipes—a delicious array of globally influenced cuisine that can be on your table in as little as 20 minutes—prove otherwise. “I tell my clients that luxurious food doesn’t have to take all day to prepare,” says nutritionist and chef Adam Kelinson, author of The Athlete’s Plate, who developed these meals. And while it may take a little extra time up front to make sure you have fresh ingredients on hand, the results are worth it. Ingredient quality is key, he says; he recommends buying local and organic whenever possible. “And it doesn’t have to take as much time as you might think,” adds Kelinson, who also is the founder of Organic Performance, a consulting and chef service based in Bridgehampton, NY. Try one of these high-protein, low-carb meals the next time you’re in a hurry or whenever you want something quick, tasty, and satisfying.
