Welcome to Alpha’s kitchen! In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro  is going over three quick-and-easy, drool worthy, and protein-packed meals that every guy should try. He’s using pork tenderloin that is lean and delicious. It’s more delicious at 145 degrees internally (blush pink center).

Alpha’s meal combos = protein + carbohydrate + vegetable

PROTEIN :: Pork takes on the flavor of marinades and seasonings. Alpha likes black pepper and pink Himalayan salt. With a preheated grill, use a thermometer to assure cooking the center to 145 degrees. It’s so much more tender when its not over-cooked. Let the meat rest for 3-minutes after taking off the grill. Cut into medallions.

CARB :: For the carbohydrate options, Alpha opts for sweet potato (microwave while wrapped in a paper towel), quinoa (1 cup of quinoa to two cups of water; bring to boil, cover & simmer), and barley (2 cups of barley with 4 cups to water; bring to boil, simmer 45-50 minutes, and then put through a strainer).

VEGGIE :: For the vegetable portion of these meals, you’ll need low sodium canned green beans, canned black beans, cooked broccoli, and corn.
