Sometimes there’s either just not enough time, or admittedly, I’m just not in the mood to cook. We’ve all experienced those moments. So, one product I always keep in my freezer is whole wheat naan bread. Not only is it delicious, but also it’s also a healthy complex carbohydrate that I can use to make a faux-pizza. Great time saver, no hassle and family-approved. Naan doesn’t even need to be defrosted, simply add your toppings and pop it in the oven.
Ingredients for 1 serving:
• 1 piece wheat naan
• 6oz lean ground bison
• 1/4 cup red onion
• 1 cup chopped spinach
• 2 tbsp. Annie’s Naturals Organic BBQ Sauce
• 1 oz. goat cheese
• Seasonings: cayenne pepper, paprika, cumin and pepper.
1. Set oven to 395F.
2. Season and cook ground bison in a skillet.
3. Spread BBQ sauce on naan bread. Then, add spinach.
4. Place cooked ground bison on a piece of naan bread.
5. Top with chopped or thinly sliced red onions and goat cheese.
6. Place the naan bread on a baking rack (so that the bottom does not get soggy)
7. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes.

About the Author
Kevin is a fitness enthusiast out of Dallas, TX. When he saw himself in his friend’s Facebook photo he knew it was time to make a change. He was overweight, felt sluggish and had steadily rising blood pressure. So, he did what many people try to do – he started exercising to try to “out train” a poor diet. He quickly learned through periods of weight cycling that if he was going to accomplish his fitness goals, it would have to be through a steady, healthy diet, complemented by hard work in the gym.
He started studying nutrition and got started cooking! In 2012 Kevin started a small blog to share his meals online in order to build a community around healthy food ideas.
The blog was called Fit Men Cook and it had a simple message and belief system – “Our bodies are built in the kitchen, Sculpted in the gym.”
Kevin firmly believes that healthier food options do not have to be boring. Ever. In fact, they are pretty tasty!
Fit (Wo)Men Cook is the “fit” story of all of us. It is taking your individual success stories and things (in nutrition & fitness) that have worked for you, and sharing those ideas with the masses so we can all grow, improve together. Just everyday people – no matter the fitness level or athletic ability – aiming to live the best life possible through fitness and healthy eating. Are you a Fit (Wo)Men Cook?
