The biggest reasons for failed diets are
• temptation, and
• lack of knowledge.
All items on the list below are good for you, practical, and will take the guess work out of a grocery trip which can sometimes be stressful or unsuccessful when not planned out accordingly.
• Unsweetened almond milk
Plain or vanilla, your choice, but opt for the unsweetened for less calories!
• Non-fat plain Greek yogurt
A versatile item that you can add many mix-ins to, can substitute for sour cream, or use in many baking recipes!
• Low-fat cottage cheese
A great snack and a natural source of casein, a slow digesting protein.
• Liquid egg whites
Because ain't nobody got time for that! Takes the hassle out of cracking eggs and you're getting nothing but the good stuff, baby!
• Low or no sodium black beans
Always good to have on hand as a side dish when you're craving Mexican food!
• Yellow corn
See black beans reason above.
• Tomato sauce
For homemade pizzas on the flat-breads that I'm about to tell you to buy, also good on practically EVERYTHING.
Opt for a no sugar/salt added so you can control how much goes in!
AMAZING for pizzas, wraps, etc. Low in calories and contains protein!
• Brown rice Perfect side dish... in moderation!
• Zucchinis and squash
To be roasted with some olive oil and garlic powder until slightly browned makes for a perfect accompaniment to dinner!
Add to any meals to make more hearty. I prefer mine sautéed in an egg white omelet!
• Sweet potatoes
Again, a great side to any meal, and GOOD FOR YOU vitamins!
• Lean ground turkey
For turkey burgers, stir fry’s, lettuce wraps, or just cooked and eaten with some veggies and tomato sauce...mmmm!!!)
• Chicken breast
A lot healthier than beef! Find a yummy Morningstar substitute if you’re veggie.
Get in those Omega 3's and good fats! Now....get ready...get set....
