Shakeology for breakfast. I have a shake at least once a day, if you haven't noticed. ;) )Lately I've been drinking them for dinner.)But really, I have nothing but good things to say about it. Since I started drinking Shakeology, I've gotten maybe 2-3 stomach aches(not from it) when I used to get them EVERY day, I have more energy and my hair and nail growth is crazy! I recently recovered from anemia, so the hair and nails suffered a lot. If you have any questions about it, don't be afraid to ask! |
-Oatmeal: Most mornings I like cold crunchy cereal if I'm going to have cereal, but I still love my oatmeal! And no, those sugary packets of oatmeal don't count. Before cooking my oats, I usually mix in cinnamon, dried apples, stevia and once it cools down, almond milk and a spoonful of peanut butter.
- Nonfat plain Greek yogurt: It's the highest protein yogurt that I know of and it's thick and delicious! I mix mine with fruit and stevia and top it with muesli or cereal of some sort.
-Salads/Veggie bowls: These usually include some sort of mix of organic romaine, quinoa, zucchini, asparagus, onion, tomato, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, edamame, avocado, fresh corn cut off the cob..pretty much anything besides bell pepper!
-Veggie burgers: I don't eat these as a sandwich, but I will crumble them on top of my salads for flavor.
- Quorn: The best chicken replacement I have found that tastes good and is soy free!
-Solid white albacore tuna: I won't eat chunk light or anything packed in oil. My favorite tuna recipe: protein packed tuna salad
- Fish: Halibut, salmon, tilapia and ahi tuna are my favorites. I try to have a good piece of fish at least once a week. I try to avoid farm raised fish if possible.
-Shrimp: I also try to have shrimp with a meal at least once a week.
- Crab/lobster: Wishful thinking, but I wouldn't mind having crab and lobster EVERY week. ;)
-Spaghetti squash: I use it instead of pasta for an extra veggie-packed meal. My favorite meal with spaghetti squash yet: zuchinni and spaghetti squash pasta
That's mostly what I've been eating lately, but I'll add more as I think of them!!
A list of staples you can usually find in the kitchen are:
-unsweetened almond milk
-old fashioned or quick cooking oats
-all natural peanut butter (organic when I can get it)
-high protein cereal
-Fage Greek yogurt
-frozen organic strawberries
-solid white albacore tuna packed in water
-frozen tilapia or salmon fillets (not farm raised)
-organic baby spinach
-organic romaine or red leaf lettuce
-canned corn(if fresh is out of season)
-all natural BBQ sauce(Stubb's is my favorite)
-crackers (Crunchmaster multi grain gluten free crisps are my favorite right now)
-V8 boxed soups (high in sodium but the best soups off the shelf)
-veggie burgers (not the kind that are supposed to taste like real meat)
-Quorn naked chik'n cutlets
-Girard's light champagne dressing
-olive oil and balsamic vinegar
-smart balance butter spread
-whole wheat sandwich thins
-chocolate chips ;)
That doesn't include EVERYTHING that goes into my shopping cart at the store. It's a pretty good basic list of what I eat, but not everything that I eat..Trust me, I get my fair share of sweets and indulgences every week.
Any tips, ideas, thoughts, comments would be greatly appreciated!! What are your favorite things that I could add to my food list?
