High protein breakfast that is both easy and super filling

One of the things I love (and works best for me) about the program, is the fact that it focuses on high protein, low fat, low sugar meals and snacks. This my friends, is the secret of the success I've had with the program. So I can't help but be creative with my favorite meals in order to make them yummy, easy, and filling!

Prepping For Hydration

Prepping For Hydration

Prep your lemons for hydration and salad dressing

But my favorite hydration beverage by far is also one that is commonly used as a means to detox and even "supposedly" helps break down the fat in stubborn cell walls where fat had been lodging for so long. All that sounds great I thought...but what about the science to back these claims? None! Truth be told, I like the taste, simple as that. I now prepare a quart of the drink each morning as a way to encourage myself to drink more water. Since water is not exciting enough for my palette, what a great way to add flavour (and maybe some healthy side effects)!!

Weekend meal prep

So I saved half the veggies for next weekend (zip-locked them in a freezer bag and put them away in the freezer), and did the same with the celery root in hopes to make a warm and hearty soup next weekend. Six and half hours later, I have to look at the bright side: no shopping, washing, chopping or guessing of any veggies next week (yessss!).

Healthy simple snack

Thought of what I REALLY felt like having for breakfast today, and how I can change my "steel cut oats and fruit" routine around a bit without sacrificing health or nutrition. Then it hit me: peanut butter, chocolate, banana, bread and cheese for protein! Here it is...how yummy this was.

Simple Ingredients

Simple Ingredients

 Unless you have particular allergies to a specific food, fruits and vegetables consumed in their natural form (unprocessed) is the way to go for great health. Having the basics at hand, will always make it a cinch to put together something appetizing (and filling!). All depends on your personal taste of course, but I always have some tomatoes, lemons, cucumbers, olives, fresh herbs, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and sundried tomatoes in my fridge. With these basic ingredients I can have a very simple meal (antipasto style), or use some (or all) to whip up a meal that is not only packed with nutrition, but that floods your senses with aroma and flavor. Looove it!
