Vietnamese Noodles and Amazing Egg Salad
First of all, if you’re celebrating – happy Thanksgiving! I hope you’ve enjoyed some well-deserved time off.
And now, welcome to my favourite part of the week – where I get to show you, dear reader, just how fantastic a weight loss meal plan can and should look.
This week’s meal plan includes two brand new recipes in it – the Vietnamese Green Noodles and the Healthy Egg Salad.
As always we have our eyes on protein content when it comes to recipe creation – it’s just so important. It’ll keep you feeling full and help you with the best muscle to fat ratio possible. For most meals it really is a case of the more protein, the merrier.
On that note, the Deviled Eggs are in the meal plan and even though you’ll see them in the breakfast section of the meal plan, that’s more of a suggestion – feel free to eat them any time of day!
The green noodles recipe is a really cool one, and I had no idea raw tofu could be so tasty. My outlook on it has been completely changed – I highly recommend giving it a shot yourself.
There are also fresh herbs called for in the recipe. As it’s getting a bit dark at the moment and we have less sunlight I’ve found our herb plants are not doing so well.
One way to preserve herbs a bit longer is to wrap them in tissue and place them in a vase or glass. You can also put them in an air tight container with some damp kitchen paper sealed in with them.
Failing that, you can use dried herbs of course 🙂
So that’s it for this week. I look forward to hearing how you enjoyed this week’s meal plan – as always give me a shout with any questions.
Have a good one!
PS. the Tangy Veggie Wrap is one of my all-time favourite recipes. Please do try it for yourself!
We hope you enjoy the recipes and as always we love seeing images of your creations in the Facebook group or @hurrythefoodup on Instagram so tag us there too if you like!

Top tips and quick fixes
- Snacks are up to you. Females: try not to go above 300-400kcal per day. Males: try not to go above 600-700kcal 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.
