21-Day Challenge

3 Weeks to Improve your Energy Levels

Recipes

on January 19, 2012

Okay, so we are far enough into this challenge now to have some sort of a ‘game-plan’ to get us through our meals each day.

Now I want you to share with us your daily food plan.  Recipes, snack ideas, etc. are all encouraged.

Can’t wait to hear what you are doing.

Here’s a quick rundown of a typical day for me:

Breakfast Ideas:

2/3 c. oatmeal, 3 egg whites OR

1/4 c. banana chips, 1/4 c. almonds, handful of dark chocolate chips, (mixed in bowl), glass of whole milk mixed with coconut milk OR

4 oz. greek yogurt, 1 tsp. honey and Luna bar

Lunch/Dinner:

Steamed brown rice or quinoa, steamed veggies, olive oil and parmesan cheese mixed together and drizzled on top, cheese stick

Salad with olive oil and viniagrette dressing

Brothy soups

Grilled or Skillet-cooked chicken with veggies, etc.

Snacks:

Cheese sticks, almond and banana chips, protein shake with coconut milk, fruit

 

Sorry we are kind of boring.  I cook fresh foods a lot, so not much casseroles, etc.  And I don’t bake much either, so not much help there…haha.

    Breakfast: oatmeal with soy milk and cut up apples, meat
    Lunch: Leftover from supper or chicken with whole wheat pasta and all natural salsa usually carrots or oranges or another vegetable
    Snacks: carrots, raisins, oranges
    Supper: It varies. Sometimes chicken or another meat dish. Always vegetables are served and it is a variety every night.

    I am avoiding sugar by the way. Krista

    Breakfast: Eggs and a green smoothie for the challenge. Before I did grain free, I would do nut butter and a rice cake with some honey or oatmeal with nut butter.

    Lunch: generally leftovers. sometimes I will make black beans and eat those as a soup with salsa and cilantro for luch.

    Supper: Many times we start with a spinach salad with vinegar/oil. Tonight we had cauliflower rice (recipe here: http://www.elanaspantry.com/cauliflower-rice/) instead of a starch along with veggies, and then chicken topped with sauteed onions, green peppers and mushrooms. It was really good! Most generally it’s a protein, veggie and brown rice, sweet potato or potato. I also use brown rice pasta (available at Walmart) that’s Tinkyada brand. It’s great drizzled with olive oil and with some basil and oregano and garlic added.

    Snacks: veggies and hummus–my kids love hummus now that I let them dress it up how they want. They especially like adding basil and oregano for a more pizza like flavor. Apple with peanut butter, almond milk with protein powder. Three in the afternoon is my worst “low” time–I have to have some protein then or I start making bad decisions!

    Breakfast- Omelette (ham, cheese, mushroom, spinach) OR oatmeal and a banana

    Lunch/Dinner- Salad with either grilled chicken or tuna. I put avocado and apple on the salad too. OR Chicken, fish, or pork chop & some type of veggie.

    Snacks-banana, celery, carrots, cheese stick, apple
