Keep in mind this menu can be tweaked as needed. The dinner meals have both lean protein, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats. It’s important to know the difference between complex carbs (good carbs) and simple carbs (not so good carbs). Here are examples of good and bad carbs, lean proteins and healthy fats:
Complex Carbs: whole grains like whole wheat bread, oats, quinoa and whole grain flour, legumes, vegetables fruit, low-fat dairy
Simple Carbs: candy, cake, ice cream, pastries, sodas (should be eaten as a occasional treat and in moderation). All of our dessert recipes contain unrefined, natural sweeteners and neverrefined or artificial sweeteners.
Lean Protein: Lean cuts of meat, low-fat Greek yogurt, legumes
Healthy Fats: Olive oil, coconut oil, seeds, nuts, cold water fish
Be sure to follow the suggested serving sizes.
