The 30-Day Bigger Leaner Stronger Transformation
When you want to indulge in a gooey, melty grilled cheese sandwich, you can include quite a few other ingredients for added nutrition.
These ten recipes include everything from mushrooms and asparagus to blueberries and beets. You can add protein too with turkey, chicken, or even lobster, and choose a hearty whole-wheat bread to make these meals even more healthful.
And let’s not forget cheese itself, which is full of nutrients like calcium and phosphorous and supremely satisfying, which means it can help you control your calorie intake for the rest of the day.
This sandwich seems fancy – like a fruit and cheese plate on bread – but it’s easy to assemble. And you can make it a vegan grilled cheese, or opt for a creamy and tangy cheese like provolone or Swiss.
Either way, you’ll feel like your lazy lunch is gourmet.
2 tsp. coconut oil
1 shallot, thinly sliced
6 oz. fresh blueberries
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
4 slices sourdough bread
4 slices vegan cheeseGet the Recipe

4 Tbsp. mozzarella, dividedGet the Recipe
This is like warm, gooey spinach artichoke dip meets a grilled cheese sandwich. Not only that, but there’s also turkey for a good amount of protein.
For a vegetarian alternative, try a few strips of vegetarian bacon. Of course, it’s just as good if you don’t worry about all that and focus on the cream cheesy filling.

3 oz. deli turkey
1 Tbsp. light cream cheese
2 Tbsp. chopped artichoke hearts (drained and rinsed, or defrosted)
1/2 cup fresh spinach
3 Tbsp. shredded part-skim mozzarella
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to tasteGet the Recipe
One-up the classic combo of bacon and grilled cheese by using prosciutto. To complete the grown-up version of grilled cheese, which features fresh mozzarella, there’s a luscious fig jam. A little arugula tossed in balsamic dressing completes the sandwich.

1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp. fig preserves
2 slices (1 oz.) prosciutto
1/4 cup fresh mozzarella, room temp.

One way to make grilled cheese gourmet is to add lobster. This might sound like a joke, but it’s totally doable and definitely delicious. However, you can’t pair just any type of cheese with the delicate meat of Maine lobster.
Havarti has the right kind of buttery flavor to work just right. If you’re trying another variety, be sure to keep it mild.
1 1/2 lb. lobster
Kosher salt (for boiling)
8 slices sandwich bread
8 slices Havarti cheese
1 Tbsp. minced fresh chives
1 Tbsp. lemon zest
8 Tbsp. unsalted butter, meltedGet the Recipe

What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?
What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?
What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?
And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?
In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?
Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.
And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.
Well, I have good news.
All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.
You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.
