4. Some things to think about when planning your meals! @meowmeix

  • Dairy – while I usually limit my dairy overall, some types are better for you than others. Look for raw unpasteurized products that aren’t stripped of minerals & nutrients. Greek yogurt and cottage cheese will be easier for your body to digest since they have probiotics, just watch out for added sugars.
  • Leafy greens – I try to add to at least 2 of my meals if not more, usually foods like kale, spinach, broccoli or broccoli sprouts. They’re packed with fiber, folic acid, vitamins & minerals and a host of phytochemicals, such as lutein, beta-cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, and beta-carotene.
  • Carbs – While carbohydrates have be pinned as the devil 😈, it’s important to feed your body the right amount or it can go into starvation mode & hold on to fat even more. So unless you’re doing a ketogenesis diet, make sure to plan the proper amount. I like to eat a heavier amount of carbs post workout like with the protein pancakes & berries and fill the rest of the day with my carbs from veggies. Then a popcorn party at night because it’s delicious & low cal

5. Indian food craving satisfied! @wanderingweights

Chicken+sweet potato curry with cauliflower rice and hummus!

Steps:

  • 1. Go to Trader Joe’s and buy curry simmer sauce 🙌🏻
  • 2. I steamed some sweet potatoes (I used 325 g) before so it wouldn’t take me as long to cook them in the sauce
  • 3. Cut up chicken for the week (I used 183g each day). Pro tip: WEIGH your chicken before cooking it
  • 4. Cut up 1/2 yellow onion
  • 5. Add curry simmer sauce to a deep dish pan, add 1 cup of water, add chicken, onion and sweet potatoes
  • 6. Put a lid on it and cook on medium heat until chicken is cooked through
    For a thicker sauce you can just take the lid off for a few minutes and let it thicken up as the water evaporates.
    For cauliflower rice I just buy it at Trader Joe’s and cook it in a skillet for 5 min on medium heat and add whatever seasoning I want to it!
    And the hummus is homemade and it’s just a vitamix recipe.
    In 30 min you’re done making your lunch for the week and it’s quick, easy and delicious!
