Here are some ideas for simple, healthy foods that you can eat all the time:
- Boneless/skinless chicken breasts
- Low fat yogurt
- Whey protein
- Brown rice
- Sweet Potato
- Cottage cheese (reduced fat)
- Natural almond butter (reduced fat)
- Whole Wheat Bread
Spinach (Fresh or Frozen)
- Red, Yellow and Green Peppers
- All other vegetables you like…the more the better!!
- Olive Oil
Think about smaller portion sizes (the palm of your hand is a snack 4-6 Ounces)
Think about eating more frequently (if more than 2.5 hours has gone by, you are slowing down your metabolism!)
Realize that we need complex carbs earlier in the day for energy.. taper off starches beginning in the afternoon and eat more vegetables in the evening.
Nuts and fruits are good for snacks. Cook in bulk and freeze stuff to save time.
Spice your food! Pesto, Red Pepper, Garlic.. Cinnamon and Stevia for sweeteners.
