One week already down!!! Can you believe it? How are you feeling? You should be feeling much BETTER by today. You should be experiencing less cravings and a little more energy. If you’re not then you are either not executing your plan correctly OR we need to revise your plan. If either is the case then come to office hours or shoot me an email.
The challenge this week. EAT MORE VEGGIES. For clarification. This week leafy greens and salad veggies: 1 LARGE Handful = 1 serving. So if you in fact had a salad that included spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, bell pepper and onions: one heaping handful would = 1 serving. If you have starchier veggies (for example) sweet potato: 1/2 a FIST = 1 serving. The maximum points allotted per day for starchier veggies is 2. This means 1 entire FIST/day. Any more than that you will not be given additional points. So, if your only veggies are 13 sweet potatoes and some spaghetti squash you are still only receiving 2 total points. However, if you eat 4 handfuls of salad, a handful of asparagus, 1/2 fist sweet potato, 1/2 fist turnip, 2 handfuls of broccoli then your total is 8. Winner, winner.
Here’s what I am eating today and how it would be scored:
1/3 cup dry Quinoa Flakes
1.5 tbs Flax seed ground
1 cup egg whites +1 Omega 3 egg
1/3 cup Raspberries
Total Points = 0
2 tbs Almond Butter
2 Slices Turkey (not pictured)
Total Points = 0
3 Heaping Handfuls Salad (Power Greens, cucumber, tomatoes, bell pepper, apple) +3
1/4 Avocado, 1 tbs Olive Oil
Turkey Meatza + 1 Handful veggies (marinara sauce, brussels, broccoli, onion, mushrooms, peppers) +1
Total Points = +4
Handful Asparagus + 1 tbs Grass Fed Butter +1
1 Fist sized Sweet Potato +2
Total Points = +3
Daily Total = +7
Now onto the STUPID, EASY RECIPE OF THE DAY 🙂 I made this for something easy to grab for breakfast for both of us in the AM. Turned out pretty darn good. Could top it with an egg or two the morning of and conquer the universe!
Crumble one pack of breakfast sausage on the bottom of your crock-pot.
Dice up a variety of sweet potatoes (could use butternut squash, acorn squash or regular potatoes as well and place in crock-pot.
Crumble one pack of breakfast sausage or chorizo on top of potatoes. Drizzle with a small amount of olive oil and mix so everything is coated. Set crock-pot on low for 6 hours. Eat that feast all week long.
