Cheap & Easy minimalist testosterone boosting recipe

This recipe is as bare bones as testosterone boosting meals go. This doesn’t mean it’s ineffective, quite the opposite. These 3 ingredients are fantastic for increasing your T levels and thankfully, taste amazing.

You can pimp the dish up a bit with the optional ingredients but as the name suggests, these are completely up to you.

Ingredients

  • Sweet Potato – Sweet potatoes pack an obscene amount of Vitamin A and are a far superior carb source compared to man made grains and normal potatoes. Not to mention they’re tasty AF.
  • 4 eggs – My love affair with eggs will never die. Packed with cholesterol – the key precursor to testosterone production – these should never be ignored when trying to optimise your hormonal health. Full of protein too.
  • 20g organic cheese – Try to go organic with your dairy as to avoid the hormones injected into cattle. If you can, then cheese is a fantastic source of both fats and protein for a low price and a great taste.

Optional

  • Fat source (Coconut oil/Butter) – This will be to cook your vegetables in. A rich fat source such as coconut oil or butter makes the dish taste a million times better than shallow frying in water and is another great source of those invaluable, high-quality saturated fats.
  • 50g Asparagus – These little stems come with a bevy of vitamins – namely, vitamin C, folate and fibre. It may turn your wee a little bit green but don’t worry about that (you’ll be fine…promise).
  • 100g Mushrooms – I literally can’t remember a day when I haven’t eaten mushrooms. They taste amazing and they’re extremely good for your overall wellbeing. Full of selenium, potassium and phosphorous, these little fellas pack a big nutritional punch.
  • 1 Bell pepper – Lots of antioxidants, lots of B vitamins and lots of carotenoids. A staple for healthy hormonal health and adds some great flavour to the dish.
  • Tbsp olive oil & Tbsp balsamic vingear – Mix these to create a simple, healthy and tasty dressing for your meal. The fats in olive oil are fantastic for vitality and testosterone while the balsamic is a natural energy booster which is loaded with polyphenols and antioxidants.
  • Salt ‘n’ pepper – And finally, a little bit of salt ‘n’ pepper to add taste and a variety of minerals to the recipe. Make sure your salt is Himalayan or Celtic sea salt as these are the most mineral rich salts compared to the table salt nonsense most people use.

Cooking

Another hard one fellas.

  1. Cut potatoes in half.
  2. Slit potatoes down the middle and open them up a lil’ bit.
  3. Crack egg into said slit. Repeat that four times.
  4. Pop em in the oven for 40 mins. For the last couple of minutes, sprinkle on the cheese and let it melt in.

For optional ingredients

  1. Cut up your veg.
  2. Put your butter or coconut oil into a pan (a cast iron skillet if you’re a real man) and heat it up.
  3. Throw your veg in and cook until tender.
  4. Throw it all on the plate.
  5. Add the olive oil, balsamic and the Salt ‘n’ pepper over the top.

We had to split the portion so two poor eggs had to be cooked separately…

An extremely easy recipe, even with all the optional extras thrown in and it tastes bloody good too. If you’re strapped for cash, time, or both then this recipe should be your staple every day – you can’t get much cheaper than eggs, sweet potato and a bit of Red Leicester.
