Hello there! As you can tell, I like routine and simplicity, because many of my meal plans look very similar :) I know that I feel my best when I stick to the foods that work for me, and keeping things pretty straightforward certainly helps with that! I'm still following a lower carb high fat plan, but with less of an intermittent fasting time frame, per the recommendation of my naturopath. Here's the lineup:
Breakfast: Protein Shake // 1 scoop Build protein by PureWOD and 1 scoop Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, mixed with Native Forest Simple Coconut Milk, Bulletproof Brain Octane, and ice. This week I have a couple with golden milk spices (see more here), one with matcha, and one with extra cocoa powder and peppermint! Worth noting: I've discovered that when I use my homemade yogurt in my shakes instead of the plain coconut milk, they taste like cheesecake, which is a total win in my book!!
Lunch: Beef Sausage with Greens and Roasted Veggies // The beef sausage links from US Wellness Meats are such a convenient start to an easy meal! This time I took the casings off, cut the links into pieces, and cooked them in my Le'Creuset. When they were done, I pulled them out but left the grease behind to cook the greens in. While all this was going on, I was roasting the yellow squash and daikon radish in the oven at 425 with a generous amount of ghee until golden!
Dinner: Green Soup with Collagen Peptides and Avocado // I've had my eye on this soup by The First Mess for a while now. (Her presentation is stunning, so it's worth hopping over to her page just to see it!) I pretty much followed the recipe exactly, except I used homemade bone broth in place of the vegetable broth, doubled the greens, and started with pre-ground spices for convenience. I also added in some Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides for a little bit of extra protein, and will be topping each serving off with a small avocado!
Optional Snack: Artisana Coconut Butter
And that's a wrap! Have a great week!
