I wanted to share with you an example day of what I tend to eat so far doing the 21 Day Fix just in case you want some meal/snack ideas or to see how I structure my day. I think you can eat these healthy foods (remember PORTION CONTROL is key even with healthy foods) doing any program and see results.
Meal 1 = shakeology with 1 banana & 1 teaspoon natural peanut butter
Meal 2 = oranges (I can fit about 3 mandarin oranges in a purple container)
Meal 3 = chicken breast (4 oz) with smoky southwestern seasoning/olive oil, brown rice & veggie of choice (green beans are shown in the picture below)
**I noticed that the 1 minute rice cups that I was eating in the past was actually TOO MUCH for the yellow container that rice needs to go in – so I have cut down on that. 😉
Meal 4 = Peppers (red, yellow, green) and hummus
Meal 5 = tilapia with olive oil/honey OR olive oil/seasoning, black beans & veggie of choice (in the picture below = chick peas & salad)
Meal 6 = shakeology with unsweetened shredded coconut -OR- my “treat” which is the high protein chocolate peanut butter protein bar (which is seen in the last picture) <~ you can have a “treat” in place of a yellow container 3 times a week
^^That was a typical day for week 1 – which I lost 3.8 lbs sticking to.
IDEAS TO MAKE YOUR FOOD MORE EXCITING —
*Mix it up with SEASONINGS and HERBS – I love sprinkling different seasonings on top of my veggies so they aren’t just plain ol’ veggies. Examples of ones I like (but you find your faves) — cumin, curry, chipotle, garlic powder.
*I’ve been trying to eat something every 2 hours – part of the guideline for the fix.
