Meat Free Monday: Healthy Eating Meal Plan and Exercise

Hi guys I thought I’d share with you all a typical day of mine.
Let me be clear, this is what I eat on a really good day, (and by good I mean healthy) on a good day I avoid sugary snacks/drinks, processed food and food high in salt or saturated fat. However, I am not a robot- I enjoy treats ALOT. Keeping myself full on healthy food prevents me from giving in to my cravings for bad food (most of the time). I eat healthy food 80% of the time. It’s just as important to indulge now and then as it is to eat well.

Lately I have been trying to cut down on my intake of meat (for lots of reasons but thats for another blog post) so I always try and make Monday (and often Tues, Weds, Thurs) meat free. Here is my meat free, healthy eating meal plan and exercise for the day.

Breakfast:
Porridge oats with koko coconut water, 1 chopped apple, sprinkle of cinnamon

AM Snack
Protein pancakes (1scoop strawberry protein powder, 1 and a 1/2 bananas, 2 eggs.
Whizz up in blender and heat in pan
1tbsp of maple syrup with it.

Lunch:
Stir fry- rice noodles (the wok ready ones- the others aren’t as nice), rainbow veg (today it was sugar snap peas, red pepper and red cabbage) some pineapple, a dash of soy sauce and some sweet chilli dipping sauce. Heated in a wok.

PM Snack: fruit 1 or 2 tangerines or 1 apple with peanut butter or veggie sticks with houmous

Dinner: par boiled sweet potato which is then fried in a small amount of coconut oil and eaten with a mixed leaf salad. I like to add pomegranate pips and some goats cheese then dress with a homemade olive oil dressing or balsamic glaze.

Drinks: 1 green tea
2l of water if possible. I am able to drink lots however, some people might have jobs that don’t allow them to go to the toilet every 5 minutes so I appreciate this isn’t always possible.

Exercise.
I am currently using Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide. However, I also enjoy strength training so I like to add in a couple of weights sessions each week too.

Today it was a kayla workout (Legs) here is one similar and you can download a whole week of her workouts from her website here
