Are you looking for a free healthy eating plan? That is wise.
"It pays to plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the ark."
Planning is central to success when it comes to many things: Having children, a party, going to the moon - but it's equally important on the daily things. Especially what you eat.
If you don't have a plan, you will fail. You will eat whatever is easy, can be ordered in, or made fast. Those things don't go well together with the healthy eating guidelines.
So lets sit down together, and make a free healthy eating plan that fits into the smart healthy eating lifestyle. We'll give you a one day plan here, that you can modify, or you can find more free healthy eating plans on our Healthy Eating Plans page.
Breakfast can be quite simple, or a bit more complex if you like:
Fresh fruit smoothie -
1 Banana1/4 cup grapes
1/2 cup frozen berries
1 egg (optional)
handful of almonds
3/4 cup water
Put almonds and water in blender, and process until milky. Add grapes, banana, berries and optional egg, blend. I like it frozen to eat with a spoon. You may want it warmer, or more liquid. Play with the amounts, and the types of fruit.
If you want to change it up a bit, try some oatmeal with fruit on top, cook a couple eggs, eat some leftover meat from last night. Just make sure you get some fruit first!
Make a favorite salad. Romaine, Spinach, whatever types of leaves you like. Give yourself a double portion. Eat out of the salad serving bowl! Add some berries, nuts, seeds. Use your favorite dressing, or better yet make a quick olive oil vinaigrette dressing.
2 Tablespoons Raspberry Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Raspberry Preserves
1/3 Cup Olive Oil
Add some chicken or beef to boost the protein if you like.
Roast beef, or chicken. Slow cooked in the oven or crock pot. Best if you can get grass feed organic meats. Have some more salad, and some lightly steamed veggies - broccoli, carrots, zucchini, peppers.
Still hungry? have some more meat, and veggies. Eat until you are comfortably filled up.
All the fruit you can eat. All the veggies you can eat. Have some nuts, or seeds, or berries. A piece of meat.
Water. Iced, hot, room temperature. Try different flavours such as distilled, spring, reverse osmosis. Drink it often. Whenever you are thirsty! If you do have other beverages, (juice, milk, pop, tea, coffee, beer, wine ... whatever) just make sure you have a glass of water first.
Smart healthy eating is not about giving up what you love, so if you LOVE potatoes, cheese, milk, pasta - then have some, but remember the guidelines - have some fresh raw fruit or veggies first!
