Lucky Legumes Part Two
Watch the video of this week’s meal plan!
We continue the theme of pulses this week – because they’re just so great for weight loss!
They’re high in fiber and protein, both of which help to keep us full and feeling satisfied. This meal plan is deisgned to get you at least a minimum of one serving a day (and sometimes two).
As always, we follow our ‘cook once, eat twice’ motto, and the recipes are great for reheating the next day.
Enjoy this week’s plan 😎.
For the once-a-week shoppers
- An avocado is needed on days 5 and 6 – so make sure you buy a slightly unripe one that will ripen over the coming days.
Top tips and quick fixes
- You can make both batches of chia seeding pudding the night before, and they’ll keep nicely in the fridge for two easy breakfasts.
- For this week you could have a snack extra per day: for females this means around 300 kcal per day. Males: try not to go above 600kcal per day
Day 7 is all up to you. It’s a great day for leftovers, or perhaps you have ‘eat out’ obligations. We would still recommend sticking to roughly 1500kcals for women and 1800kcals for men when weight loss is a priority.
The recommendations on physical activity are general and non-specific. If you have any injuries or conditions which may restrict your ability to perform physical activity, please seek medical/professional advice before making changes.
