What’s different this week now that the Real Food Challenge is over?
More use of convenience items like chicken sausage and yummy items like bacon. Is there anything wrong with these foods? No, not at as long as you aren’t eating them as your main source of nutrition and not as long as you are getting NITRATE FREE versions. The Real Food Challenge was intended to challenge us to get back to basics and eat as much clean unprocessed food as possible, setting the tone for a healthy 2019!
What else is different?
Dessert is back! Healthy desserts like the protein fudgy brownies should have a place in your diet. In fact, unhealthy desserts (like the box of Girl Scout Cookies I have been working on) totally have a place in your diet as well. As long as you are eating 80% of your meals full of protein and produce, you can have treats too!
Swaps & Substitutions
- Swap out the zucchini for chopped broccoli or any other veggie in the egg cups.
- Not a fan of apples? Swap out any one piece of fruit or 1 cup of berries.
- Swap out any ground meat in the paleo sloppy joe!
Meal Prep Tips
This week’s meal plan is pretty meal prep friendly! The bacon zucchini egg muffins and chicken shawarma bowls come with meal prep instructions. For dinners, do your best to prep any veggies ahead of time, for example:
- Cook spaghetti squash ahead of time.
- Prep and trim green beans.
Enjoy this week’s plan!
