Congratulations on making it through week 1 of my 4-week challenge to reboot your health! Keep up the great work. If you haven’t started yet, it’s never too late to join. You can begin today (or any time, really!). Here are 3 recipes – one for breakfast, lunch, and dinner – to get you started or keep you going!
1-2 cups frozen organic strawberries
1 cup frozen cauliflower (I promise you can’t taste it!)
1 serving of vanilla protein powder
1 tbsp. lemon juice
Pinch of sea salt
1 tbsp. flax seed or chia seeds (optional)
1 tbsp. melted coconut oil or nut butter
~12oz. of water (enough to cover all of the ingredients)
This chicken salad is great because it uses Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise, which is a convenient way to get in extra protein! Plus, with this homemade recipe, you don’t have to worry about any weird ingredients that you might find in store-bought chicken salads! Also, you can make it taste exactly the way you like it by adding different sweet or savory options.
You are welcome to bake your own boneless, skinless chicken breasts, but for this recipe I keep it simple and use rotisserie chicken!
~ 4-5 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/3 cup celery, diced
1/3 cup apples, diced
1/3 cup red onion, diced
1/3 cup grapes, halved
¼ cup chopped almonds, walnuts, or pecans
¼ cup dried cranberries or raisins, optional
Salt, to taste
To make it SWEET, add 1-2 tbsp. lemon juice and 1-2 tbsp. honey.
To make it SAVORY, add 1-2 tbsp. Dijon mustard, 1 tbsp. fresh dill, and ¼ tsp. black pepper.
Who doesn’t love a good burger on their patio when the weather is nice? These burger bowls satisfy my cravings without the bun and the unhealthy fats that come with French fries. (And you don’t even have to fire up the grill… unless you want to, of course!)
3-4 small (or 1-2 large) russet potatoes; washed, peeled, and cut into ~1 in. pieces
1 lb. ground turkey or lean ground beef
1 head of Iceberg lettuce or 1-2 large heads romaine lettuce, chopped
Salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder for seasoning the meat
Burger toppings of choice; for example:
