When you are eating for muscle gain and fat loss, a big salad is one of the best things that you can eat for dinner. It’s a wonderful blend of veggies that are high in fiber and you can top it off with a hearty serving of protein. Really any mixture of fresh veggies and lean, cooked meat will do. Try to keep your rotation of veggies and protein new and exciting.
