Lunch Upgraded!

Watch the video of this week’s meal plan!

Hi everyone!

Can you believe it’s November already? Seriously, where does the time go?

It seems parsnips are everywhere right now, so we’ve included our beloved Honey Roast Carrots & Parsnips with Feta and Pomegranate, along with two brand new recipes.

They are the Middle Eastern Masabacha – which is basically hummus upgraded to a full meal (amazing!!) and the new Spinach and Chickpea Bake, which as you can probably guess from the name is super-nutritious.

As always we’ve worked hard to ensure you get a healthy and nutritious balance between the right amount calories and a good amount of protein without going too overboard on the fats.

Enjoy this week’s plan, and any questions just hit to the email you got!

We also love seeing images of your creations in the Facebook group or @hurrythefoodup on Instagram so tag us there too if you like!

For the once-a-week shoppers

  • Day 1-2: The Quick and Healthy Sweet Potato Soup is set to 4 servings – stick the leftovers in the freezer and you’ve always got an amazing meal to fall back on!
  • Day 5-6: Pomegranate seeds – we definitely recommend getting the frozen ones here – so easy to store!

Top tips and quick fixes

  • Snacks are up to you. Females: try not to go above 350kcal per day. Males: try not to go above 650kcal per day. This means a rough total of 1500kcal per day in total for females, and 1800kcal for males.
  • 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.
