This is it, simple, good food and nutritious! There are some, ok, many days where I just don’t have enough time to eat or make a healthy meal. And then it comes 8:00 p.m. and I am scouring the pantry and frig for some food and that is when I do not make good choices. Sound familiar? So I have combined all my favorite foods and made them into this “diet”!
FYI – I do not do this everyday but just a few days out of the week is a great jumpstart for trimming down.
It only takes about 15 minutes worth of prep work! I usually make everything you see the night before and have it all ready to go in the frig and freezer, even the egg burrito! Sometime I give the shakes a quick blend before I drink them, they hold up really well as premade shakes! You could easily take all this food to work and throw everything in a cooler. A little bit of planning will help you from falling off track, only 15 minutes!
I usually start off with this delicious homemade chocolate peanut butter protein bar. I could save it until later in the day but it is so good that I am too excited and eat it first thing in the morning. I used to use regular ole’ peanut butter but I found that if I use powered peanut butter or PB2, it is so much faster to make. Easy as 1,2,3!
I like to use an old Noosa Yoghurt container. Add two tablespoons of powered peanut butter.
Add one scoop of chocolate peanut butter whey protein powder. Add about 1 to 2 tablespoons of water and mix well.
Place container in the freezer and you are good to go. I revised this bar just a bit from the previous recipes, using real peanut butter. PB2 (aka powdered peanut butter) is just easier to measure!
After a good workout, it is time for a breakfast burrito. Remember the tortilla I featured in my Top 13 Diet Foods/Products for 2013. I pop the egg into a large soup bowl and microwave for 1 minute (this depends upon your microwave), throw a slice of cheese on top and microwave for another 12 seconds. Then wrap it in a tortilla and you are done! You may dip the burrito in some salsa!
This salad could be for lunch or dinner but I have learned if I have this salad pre-made I am more likely to eat it! Loaded with fresh veggies and lean chicken, it is a rock star salad!
Don’t forget the dressing, yummy creamy yogurt dressings!
Two strawberry protein shakes for the day. They are great snacks/mini meals and extremely filling with the protein and fiber from the chia flour (or you can use flaxseed). The brewers yeast just adds a nutritional boost. Time these shakes about 3 to 4 hours after eating a small meal.
Just reminding you of the products I used in the shake.
Oh yeah, remember these! The “hunger fighter”! Just one of these a day!
