If you follow me on any of my other medias Facebook – Mommy Rhetoric and Instagram – Mommy Rhetoric. You know that I am getting ready to start a new Beachbody Program. I have also had some requests about what my food intake looks like and I was kinda holding off because I knew that this was happening tomorrow. So I will share…however that comes with a few things.
I am a beachbody coach and I can help you. However, I am not pressuring anyone and I am not trying to recruit anyone by this post. I would love support however you need, but my ultimate goal is that we are all just the best version of ourselves. If you know me you know I am genuine. If you don’t you may think yea right?! But that is on you.
I plan to follow the container system for this journey that lasts 6 weeks. I also plan to follow the 2B Mindset which is a program about eating intuitively and mindfully. I don’t deprive myself of anything I want. The cool thing about the 2B Mindset is I was eating this way long before this program exists. A huge weight loss tip is to truly listening to your own body on what foods you need and want.
For example, I made this granola yesterday and I ate too much granola yesterday because it was sooo yummy. I felt terrible last night because it was too many carbs, too much oatmeal. I know better. In my experience you will feel satisfied and it is the perfect amount when you want more but you know you should not. Sometimes I give in. Sometimes I do not. I will NOT deprive myself. Period.
So anyway…what I am here for. At the beginning of any program where I am changing eating to more strict eating I will add mexican dishes in it because it makes it so much easier for me because that is my favorite food by far. So you will likely notice a trend.
Breakfast – 21 Day Fix Apple Banana Muffins which counts as 1 purple and 1 blue. I love this because it feels carby for breakfast, but it is not. I will sub out apples for blueberries if you want that flavor. 1-2 Hard boiled egg (1 red if 2/.5 red if 1). 2 Strips of bacon (1 red). The 21DFX recommends turkey bacon, however, with my keto experience I am less afraid of fats as long as you have a good traditional bacon. As well, I need more protein than I typically get so I pack it in in the AM. It will look like this all week.
Lunch – Spaghetti squash (1 Green) with this sauce (1.5 green and 1 tsp) with 1 red of beef. I just bake the spaghetti squash and sprinkle with garlic and coconut oil spray.
Snack – Nuts .5 blue (or my carb depending on my mood – 1 Yellow if I have granola).
Dinner – I am making gluten free lasagna using the sauce and gluten free noodles. I don’t necessarily have a recipe, but I will add hamburger to the sauce so it will be 1 red worth per serving. They will have garlic bread and I will have a fruit or one of my muffins (1 purple) topped with .5 tablespoon (.5 blue) of peanut butter.
Snack – I will usually eat my carb here and some olives and pickles. My carb maybe toast with butter or jelly. Or it maybe half a sweet potato (1 yellow).
Dinner – Taco Pizza. I will make this taco meat and one serving is (1 red). I like to use flat out bread and I think half of one is 1 yellow. If I cannot find those (sometimes I cannot around here) I will have 1-2 corn tortillas (2 actually counts as 1 yellow). I top with 1 red of taco meat, cut a tomato (.5 green or 1 full green). I top with cheese (1 blue or .5 blue depending on my mood…I don’t like a lot of dairy in general). I will sometimes top with ranch. I will likely add in a veggie to be sure I meet my green requirement (1 green).
Breakfast/Lunch/Snacks – Same
Dinner – Parmesan Chicken (1 red), asparagus or if I have leftover spaghetti squash I will place my parmesan chicken on top of it (1 green). I don’t necessarily have a recipe, but I usually will make it with an egg and almond milk mixed together and a cup of parmesan and gluten free breadcrumbs. I count this topping as (1 blue and .5 yellow). If I have red sauce left I will also put it on top, but if not no big deal. I will also probably have a half of a sweet potato (1 yellow). There will be dinner rolls for the girls and my guy. For me nope.
Breakfast/Snacks – Same
Lunch – I am outta the squash at this point so I will make butternut squash soup which I just make by baking a butternut squash and emulsify it with 1 cup of almond milk or coconut milk. I season it with salt, cinnamon, onion powder. It will be 1 green/1 red and 1 tsp.
Dinner – Family always goes out to dinner here. For me usually I will eat whatever is leftover from earlier in the week or I will go to dinner with # 1 for tacos. If tacos I will eat 2 hardshell tacos smothered in salsa and count as (1 yellow/1 green/1 red/1 blue/1 purple). If super strict feeling I will not eat chips and salsa. If not then I will eat handful of chips and salsa. This is where I won’t deprive myself. If there were cheats (though I don’t believe in cheating. I am eating…thank you!) this would be it. I just don’t go crazy!
Breakfast/Lunch/Snacks – Same
Dinner – My guy and I go out to eat and I will usually eat whatever I can on plan as best I can.
Above all….I eat clean. I do want any extra “crap” in my food.
For drinking – Lots of water, pre-workout, Pure Leaf Unsweet Black Tea
Hope this helps!!!
