Bye Bye Belly Bloat

When it comes time to get yourself on track with your nutrition, many people ask where do they start?? I’m personally a big fan of a detox/clean eating plan to help launch you onto you healthy eating plan. Now I know what you are thinking, and nope this is not one of those weird things where you drink green juice for 3 days. Its simply a clean eating food plan, with the option to use a plant based drink, to help get your body back on track.

 

1888590_10151937408343364_473944547_nThe reason I like to do this is it helps to get toxins out, plus for many people who follow it, it takes away the cravings for sweets! It also gives you an energy boost which is a big help for most people!!!

 

How does it work?? You simply follow my meal plan! You can substitute as needed but the closer you follow the plan, the better!

 

For breakfast you can have things like oats, greek yogurt, egg whites, or a protein shake.

 

Lunch options are sweet potatoes, brown rice, any vegetables, and protein such as chicken, ground turkey, fish or tuna.

 

Afternoon snacks are items like hard boiled egg whites, almonds or a protein shake.

 

Dinner includes a meat of your choice, more veggies, and brown rice or sweet potato.

As you can see, its plenty of food and your portions can be adjusted to meet your own personal needs. The point of these foods is to eat clean items, not things that are processed and high in sugar.

 

You can also use a plant based detox drink to really see some truly amazing results. I love using this and am amazed how great I feel after!! With this drink, you are truly detoxing your body!!10730959_881109898589144_6589449028529981948_n

Skinny Peanut Butter Cookies

pb cookiesI’m a personal trainer, sports nutritionist, and have lost over 80 lbs. How did I do it??? By not depriving myself of treats! I simply found healthier ways to have foods I loved, and that helped me stick with my plan. Many people cut out the foods they love, so then they feel deprived and binge eat. When they do that, they gain weight back at a faster weight and are farther behind on their goals than when they started. The fix for this??? Don’t deprive yourself! Have the foods you like in moderation and try to make them healthier.

Peanut Butter cookies are one of my favorite treats, and this recipe gives you 24 cookies at 36 calories each!!!! This is a great way to have a snack that doesn’t ruin all your hard work. Not to mention kids loves these too!!
