Here is my exact diet I’ve followed during the Challenge. It’s actually not that different from how I normally eat, I’ve just cut out all junk food.
Egg burrito- 1 scrambled egg, refried beans, wrap
4oz of OJ
1 cup of coffee, w/sweetnlow, almond milk creamer
If I’m in a hurry I grab an egg white burrito out of the freezer, I buy Good Food Made Simple brand
On Sunday I make gluten free pancakes w/fresh blueberries
Mid morning snack
Raw veggies like celery and carrots or cucumbers
Turkey sandwich with a sliced half avocado on it, no mayo. I buy the Applegate naturals, no nitrates, antibiotics, etc.
weekends I mix it up, usually with some type of light soup.
1 Apple, 1 or 2 Clementine’s, 1 rice cake (spread out)
1 cup of green tea
Sensible dinner usually consisting of chicken, ground turkey or fish and a vegetable and rice or beans.
After dinner some type of fresh fruit to satisfy the sweet tooth.
If the munchie bug hits during the evening I’ll make some air popped popcorn with zero cal butter spray and some light salt
Lots and lots of water all day and night. The great thing about doing hot yoga everyday is that I’m always thirsty so drinking lots of water is not a problem.
Here’s a new favorite dinner of mine:
Ground turkey fried rice
3/4 cup long-grain white rice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 pound ground turkey
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 tablespoon chopped ginger
4 scallions, sliced
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup snow peas, halved
4 carrots, sliced
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- Cook the rice according to the package directions.
- Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turkey, garlic, ginger, and half the scallions and cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon, until browned, 3 to 5 minutes.
- Add the rice, peas, snow peas, carrots, hoisin sauce, and vinegar to the turkey mixture and cook until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Top with the remaining scallions.
