Protein Loaded Post-Workout Meal Using Avocado, Broccoli, Eggs, and Salmon

Intuitively putting all these ingredients together, but wait...avocado, broccoli, eggs, and salmon, aren't those ingredients all high in protein? Does that mean it can be a perfect post-workout meal?

Protein loaded post-workout meal using avocado, broccoli, eggs, and salmon -


  • 2 hard boiled eggs
  • 1 small avocado
  • 1 broccoli
  • 1 salmon fillet
  • 1 tablespoon bitter tea oil (olive oil works fine too)
  • 2 teaspoons grated ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon mixed dried Italian seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 2 lemon or lime wedges
  • Some salt
  • Some black pepper


Boil the eggs first. Once cool down, remove the egg shells then cut into smaller chunks.

Cut the broccoli into smaller pieces. Bring a pot of water to a boil, season the water with salt. Quickly cook the broccoli in salt water, no more than 1 minute. Drain well and set aside for later use.

Cut the salmon fillet into thick strips or smaller chunks. Season with some salt and black pepper. 

Grate the ginger. Remove the avocado skin and cut into big cubes.

Prepare a non-stick pan. Drizzle some bitter tea oil over and turn to medium high heat. Add in grated ginger and transfer the salmon over. Sear till fully cooked and slightly browned on sides. Remove from heat. Use a kitchen towel to absorb excess oil if desired.

Mix together the broccoli, eggs, and salmon with 1/4 teaspoon of dried Italian herbs and 1/8 teaspoon of cumin. Also squeeze in juice of 1 lemon or lime wedge. Mix in avocado cubes last. Taste and see if need more salt.

Serve with extra lemon or lime wedge on the side. 

To make it a fuller meal, add in some chopped lettuce or even blend in some quinoa. Serve hot or cold, both works fine. 

On top of protein, avocado also contains healthy fats, broccoli has folate and potassium, and eggs can help with the meal portion since it can be a much more filling ingredient. Salmon, don't even get me started, just think about its omega-3 fatty acids. Putting them together, what a power boost we've got here.
