It’s time to get back on track and what better way to do that then a Meal Challenge!
This challenge is great for people who are just starting their fitness journey, feeling lost or just wanting some motivation! I want you to find which way of eating is best for you! Some people, like myself do integrative nutrition. This means I listen to what my body needs and wants… unless it’s saying it wants 90 cheeseburgers haha.
There are a ton of people who still like counting methods, such as macros, counting calories or doing low carb, high fats and protein diets. These have all worked for different people and I have tried just about every “diet” and found integrative eating best for me. So let’s see what works best for you.
Holidays I always tend to fall off a bit. I had more control this year than last but still ready to get back to my healthy self! As, most of you know I don’t like leftover food so when I meal prep for myself, it’s a bit different, which I’ll go over. I always tell people do what’s best for you, whether that’s crockpot meals, oven meals or actual meal prep! Whatever it is, let’s get back to it!
I’ll go over what I do for my meals and if you would like you can try it out!
First off, My Grocery List…
- Bell Pepper
- Spaghetti Squash
- Sweet Potato
- Ground Turkey
- Black Beans
To start my day do 1 glass lemon water or green tea. Sometimes coffee… Just depends on my mood. But when I know I need to be good. I do Lemon and Water.
Breakfast, I like to do Eggs and Avocado, If I am short on time I will do a Protein shake with Peanut Butter in it. Focus on getting protein and a healthy fat in! I go workout right after this.
After my workout, I’ll get home and have a Snack, I’ll do 2 of my protein pancakes and some Berries. After a workout it is important to get protein and carbs to help the muscle recover and repair.
Once, I am hungry again which is in about 3-4 hours, I’ll make ground turkey, bell pepper cooked in olive oil with rice and beans. My mid day meal I focus on getting my protein source, vegetable, carb and fat to make sure I have the energy to kick ass through the rest of the day.
Recipe for turkey burger:
For Dinner, I do chicken and asparagus for the most part, if I feel I need something more than that then I’ll cook up some rice or potato. Everyone is different so it is important to add in what you feel your body needs.
How to prepare the Foods…
- Fruit and Vegetables can be raw
Seasoning and Oil…
I stick with mostly olive oil or coconut oil. Seasoning, I honestly use whatever the hell I want because it’s not a huge deal. Using a little extra ketchup on something isn’t going to make you fat so don’t stress it.
Meals are different for everyone, some people that try this plan, don’t like it. If macros or counting calories works best for you, then do it. For macros and calorie counting, make sure you get exact percentages for yourself (body weight and height)
Nothing will work the same on anyone so you must try it for yourself and judge on how you feel to see if it work for you! I didn’t include measurements in here because everyone is different and you will have to figure out the amount you need. Go kick some ass and lets accomplish these goals on eating right!
