10 Roasted Red Potatoes Recipes You Can Make in 30 Minutes or Less

Evidence Based

When you want to lose fat and get lean, the biggest hurdle that you have to clear is getting your diet right.

As you probably know, that mostly means eating the right amount of calories and macronutrients every day. And by “right amount,” I mean “less than you want.”

That’s why many people struggle greatly with hunger and cravings when trying to lose weight. Their bodies view the caloric restriction as a potential threat to survival and take measures to negate it.

That’s also why the best types of foods for losing weight are lower in calories but highly nutritious and filling, like the potato.

Yes, you read that right.

Unbeknownst to many, the plain ol’ potato isn’t unhealthy or fattening. In fact, it’s one of the most satiating and nutrient-dense foods you can eat.

What it isn’t, though, is flavorful, until you load it up with fatty delights like butter, sour cream, and bacon bits.

This works wonders for our palates, but presents a problem: extra calories. Lots and lots of them.

As you’ll see with these recipes, though, it doesn’t have to be that way.

Roasted red potatoes are already pleasantly sweet, and with a little creativity, they can make delicious and “macro-friendly” meals.

For example, if you’re looking for a simple, flavorful standby that will work for any meal plan, try the Roasted Red Potatoes with Lemongrass, Garlic & Cilantro.

For a cross between mashed and roasted potatoes, the Indian Spiced Crash Potatoes are perfect for you.

And if you want something more indulgent, try the Roasted Red Potatoes with Bacon Parmesan Vinaigrette.

Enjoy!

OVER 100,000 PEOPLE HAVE USED MY COOKBOOK TO GET THE BODY THEY WANT EATING THE FOODS THEY LOVE. WILL YOU BE NEXT?

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.

And this book will show you the way.

Made in USA

Where your supplements are made matters, because rules and regulations regarding quality and purity differ from country to country.

And if you want to ensure the supplements you’re swallowing every day are safe and effective, you want products produced in the USA.

That’s why all of our supplements are made in America in NSF-certified and FDA-inspected facilities that operate in accordance with the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) regulations.

Did you know that studies have shown that many supplements contain dangerously high levels of toxins like lead, arsenic, and cadmium?

Not ours.

Every ingredient of every supplement we produce is tested for heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants to ensure they meet the strict purity standards set by the FDA.

Naturally Sweetened & Flavored

While artificial sweeteners may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health and that more research is needed.

That’s why all of our supplements are naturally sweetened and flavored and contain no artificial food dyes, fillers, or other unnecessary junk.

Science-Backed Ingredients & Doses

Every ingredient in every supplement we offer is backed by peer-reviewed scientific research, and every dose is included at clinically effective levels.

That means everything in our products is based on published scientific studies demonstrating real benefits, not the restrictions of razor-thin production budgets and gluttonous profit margins.

So, while everyone claims to have the best supplements on the market, we can back it up with real science and real numbers.
