What To Eat; PROTEIN

We’re talking LEAN protein. Eggs (yolks are great for you ….vitamin D, great omega fats etc) but higher in calories than the whites so no more than 2 a day…make an omelette or scramble them with 1 or 2 whole eggs and 2 or even 3 additional egg whites).

 

Fish; all and every kind.  Meat can be done (although neither of us eat it) but stick to lean chicken/turkey breasts with the skin removed. Good rule of thumb; eat protein with every meal but with fish/meat a portion is the size of a deck of cards, ie it will fit in the palm of your hand!  Anymore is unnecessary.

 

Tofu; great but be aware that for it to be healthy it needs to be baked or stir-fried.  Most places deep-fry it because it tends to be bland otherwise and we all know fat tastes good!  Get around this by marinating in a hot, spicy sauce for an hour or two before cooking then blot off excess sauce and bake in the oven.

 

Beans (NOT re-fried), Chickpeas (garbanzo beans) are also amazing but eat them whole AVOID hummus, we know…we adore it too but its SO easy to overeat and kid yourself that’s ok because its healthy.  It might be healthy but one tub is over HALF a days calories my friend. Yep, that’s the sad truth we all gotta live with.

 

Believe it or not….this gives us SO many options for filling, nutritious, skinny meals…we promise!
