Vegetarian, rich in protein and delicious.
What an incredible combination of ingredients. Originally, watermelon and feta (or similar salty, firm cheese) are popular in the Mediterranean area but I wanted to do something slightly different. Also, to be honest, I just felt to change things up and I had an open bottle of chili sauce, fresh coriander and juicy ginger at home. This is how this Asian variation was born and I am really happy with it. Give it a try!

Why eating like an adult pays off huge times.
Be prepared for some tough love, because I am tired of seeing adults eating like an unchaperoned child at a birthday buffet. We are putting so much effort in our training, we optimise sleep and lifestyle, yet we pay little attention of what we are actually putting into our bodies besides “hitting our macros”. It is nice to have a flexible diet, but that doesn’t mean you can squeeze as much junk in it as you can. It is time for a reality check!

Therefore you will be dooomed forever to eat a ridiculously low amount of calories otherwise you will become fat. Gladly there is plenty of good evidence on this subject, so let’s take a look at it and once and for all get rid of this myth!
