15 foods I eat on a regular basis and you should too!
If you don’t like the taste at first you will get used to it. I usually sprinkle a little bit of stevia on it and love to eat them cold. Really great as an energy source for your first meal. Make sure to include a protein source with it!
2. Ground Turkey
Great source of protein and very versatile. I usually make up a stir fry with tons of green vegetables. For some people it may be too dry, especially the extra lean version. If so, use a 1/4 cup of light marinara (even better if you make your own marinara sauce so there is little to no sugar).
3. Chicken Breast
An amazing lean protein source. I buy the tenderloins and season them as soon as I get home from the store. I then place them in a ziplock bag and cook a single serving size in a pan right before I am ready to eat. I keep the rest in the fridge and let the seasonings marinate.
4. GG Scandinavian Crispbread
These are a great fiber source. A little on the pricey side but worth it. I look at them as a treat with a few sprays of I can’t believe it’s not butter olive oil, a dash of cinnamon and a sprinkle of stevia. I then microwave them for about 15 seconds. You could even use one of the jellies or syrups in item #6 to sweeten them more.
5. Miracle Noodles
Another great source of fiber. I like to cook these up with a giant bowl of green vegetables and some tilapia. Very filling. Use soy sauce, garlic and coconut oil as a sauce.
6. Walden Farms Products
These products are not for everyone as they have a distinct taste. They do have calories so they are not a free food but they are great for when you need a diet friendly sauce.
Avocado is a great source of fat. It keeps my energy levels up all day. I usually combine it with some green vegetables and chicken.
8. Greek Yogurt
I prefer the 0% fat greek yogurt. The others that are sweetened or have fruit on the side are just too high in carbs/sugars. The greek yogurt can be used in so many ways. One of my favorites is to sprinkle with stevia, add a dash of cinnamon, a few drops of vanilla extract and 1/2 scoop of whey protein. Then I will add in a tablespoon of almond or peanut butter. It’s a great guilt free afternoon treat.
I am a volume eater. I love to fill up on vegetables. Not only do they help with digestion, they also contain a ton of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. One of my favorites is Kale, both raw and cooked.
10. Turkey Pepperoni
This is not considered a “clean food” but it helps when I’m on the go to get in a protein source. When possible I buy the nitrate free kind from Applegate naturals. I like to make a salad with both chicken and turkey pepperoni then top it off with a tablespoon or two of walden farms dressing and some salsa.
11. Whey Protein
I usually make a shake mid day with whey and a fat source. My favorite shake is 1 scoop double chocolate isopure whey, ice, 1/4 cup water, a couple drops of english toffee stevia and 15 almonds. Add more water if it’s too thick.
One of the best sources of fat! That’s all there is to say. So eat them.
13. Peanut Butter
I don’t eat peanut butter daily but I just had to have it on the list. I can’t live without it. If you eat oatmeal in the morning throw in a tablespoon of peanut butter. Thank me later!
I know many people prefer salmon or tuna. Not me. I love the texture of tilapia and how easy it is too chew. Sometimes chicken and ground turkey can be tough to get down. I’ve never had a problem with tilapia. I love to put some coconut oil on it along with some soy sauce and put it in the broiler to get the top crispy.
15. Coconut Oil
So many benefits in coconut oil. Not only is it a great fat source it can also be used as a conditioner for your hair and a moisturizer for your body.
