Tasty & Protein Rich

Watch the video of this week’s meal plan!

How are you doing? We’d love to receive your feedback if you’d like to share your experience with our meal plans, your personal struggles and successes!

Along with our favourite Curried Butternut Squash and Coconut Soup this week’s meal includes two new recipes, the Avocado Deviled Eggs and the Lentil Tabbouleh.

Our focus was “how to make lunch quick, tasty and protein-rich” and we’d like to think we came up with some pretty creative options here.

We’re very curious to see images of your creations in the Facebook group or @hurrythefoodup on Instagram!

For the once-a-week shoppers

  • Pomegranate Chia Yogurt: Frozen pomegranates, prep the night before.
  • Day 3-4: pick a salad mix that holds for four days for the Pasta in Peanut Sauce.
  • Day 5-6: get an avocado that is still unripe for the Vegetarian Tacos.
  • Day 5-6: ideally get mint and parsley in a pot, so it lasts 5 days until the Tabbouleh

Top tips and quick fixes

  • Pumpkin is still in season: so let’s make a Butternut Squash Soup. It’s 4 servings, but easily freezable!
  • Snacks are up to you. Females: try not to go above 150kcal per day. Males: try not to go above 450kcal per day.
  • To keep picked herbs fresh, wrap their stems in tissue and place in a jar or pot with water (like you would for flowers). They’ll keep at least a week, usually more!

Day 7 is all up to you. It’s a great day for leftovers, or if you want to go out to eat. We still recommend keeping the calories to about 1500kcal for females and 1800kcal for males if weight loss is a priority.
