Sausage, Peppers & Onions

In my quest for quick lunches and dinners, I sometimes find myself adding a few ingredients to a pan, turning it on, and calling it a meal.

This dish, as the name implies, is only made of three ingredients: thinly sliced onions, a pepper, and a few links of sausage. When eating this before a workout, usually around lunchtime, I’ll throw this over a baked potato to get extra carbs. After a workout, I’ll double the amount of sausage and eat it without any extra carbs.

It takes less than ten minutes to come together, and while certainly not a unique dish, it’s tasty and perfect for athletes.
