Are you one of the people who say… “I want to eat healthy but… I love food too much” I hear this all the time from my clients who are under the impression that healthy eating means starvation, deprivation and boring, tasteless food.
The way I do meal plan & prep is maintainable, not boring, and finds a balance between variety, amazing taste, and meals that burn fat.
I like it when I have guidelines to follow AND have some room to do my own thing and go off road from my plan every once in a while without feeling like I went “off track”.
Here’s an idea of the foods and recipes I chose for this week: I started off my days with a green smoothie and either the choice of protein pancakes, an omelette, or protein berry smoothie. I also put in my Plexus Slim Drink that helps to balance blood sugars. The protein smoothie is always convenient when in a hurry and need to be on the road! Some times i do intermittent fasting and i don’t eat any food until Noon after my workout – i still have water with lemon essential oil and my coffee in the AM.
A few hours later, usually after a workout i’ll have a sugar free Greek yogurt with some fruit and a couple of nuts to balance things out for great food combining. For lunch i might have some chicken and a large salad. Mid afternoon if i’m feeling a little peckish i might indulge in a homemade protein square to hold me over until dinner time. Dinner might be some lean protein with steamed veggies, a bean salad and sweet potato fries that are homemade and tasty!
Make sure to pick a day that you have a few hours to prepare and plan your meals for the week. I usually pick Sundays to chop veggies up, maybe cook up some chicken to have on hand for stir frys and other dishes.
