As I mentioned in my introductory post on the challenge I will be tailoring my food to the days I am in work. You can always tailor the meals to your liking and have them on the days that suit you. I should say I don’t restrict my diet at all apart from excluding dairy and sugar.
NOVEMBER 1st WEDNESDAY (DAY OFF)
Mango Lassi Smoothie
2 apples and almond butter
Roasted potato, carrot, parsnip and onion.
NOVEMBER 2nd THURSDAY & NOVEMBER 3rd FRIDAY (WORK)
2 apples with almond butter
Vegetable pasta. The pasta was made from edamame beans. I added a 0% sugar pasta sauce and had it with mushrooms, onion, pepper and tomato.
2 bananas (they were tiny!)
NOVEMBER 4th SATURDAY & NOVEMBER 5th SUNDAY (DAY OFF)
Mango Lassi Smoothie
Brown bread, soft-boiled eggs and avocado.
Chicken salad. Chicken, spinach, onion, mushroom, pepper, avocado and hoisin sauce.
NOVEMBER 6th MONDAY & NOVEMBER TUESDAY 7th (WORK)
Hummus with raw carrots and pepper sticks. Apple for sweetness.
Rice bowl with brown rice, soy sauce, onion, avocado, pepper, broccoli, corn and chickpeas (optional).
2 Bananas and purple bear snack.
As you can probably tell from the meal plan, I try to mainly eat fruit and vegetables. This is purely because I try to have a nutrient rich diet. Although I don’t eat dairy or sugar, I also rarely eat meat because I tend not to crave it. Chicken is really the only meat that I would eat on a semi-regular basis.
Don’t forget if there is an ingredient you don’t like or eat, you can swap it out for an alternative to tailor it to your diet. I know a lot of the days it seems like I’m not changing my food but that is what I eat. I could make a meal plan with different foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday, but then I would be giving you a meal and fitness plan instead of documenting what I am doing to lose weight. I highly recommend checking out Lucy’s website for some great meal plans. However, I will be integrating some of her meals in the days and weeks to come.
