Now that the Easter eating-fest is over (yes, that’s what happened), my time of grazing on delectable high calorie goodness like a hungry bison roaming wild on the range must also come to an end. This is my new, favorite flat abs meal:
Grilled chicken & sauteed greens with garlic over a bed of spaghetti squash.
It’s been prepped, packed for several day’s worth, and ready for eating as my very first meal during each day of intermittent fasting. So easy to make, pack and gnaw on for the acquisition or maintenance a great mid-section. My mother showed me the ease of making this. It’s one of those loosey-goosey recipes you just throw together without measuring — cook it up with your own personal artistic flare.
Directions: season & grill your chicken breast as the spaghetti squash bakes for approximately 50 minutes. Prior to serving, sautee’ spinach (or your favorite mixed greens) with fresh garlic and olive oil. Put everything together real pretty on a plate, add salt & pepper, and then chew.
FLAT ABS MEAL PLANNING IDEAS
Don’t complicate your meals. Keep it simple with basic combinations of protein, veggies and healthy carbs. Here are the staple food items I stick to during the week (for eating during the day):
- Protein: tilapia, chicken breast, edamame, whole eggs
- Vegetables: spinach, broccoli, carrots, fresh juiced veggies
- Healthy Fats: coconut & olive oils
- Healthy Carbs: brown rice, sweet potatoes
- Afternoon Snacks: eggo smathered in raw honey & bee pollen, or one small square of milk chocolate
- Evening Snack: cereal… awww yeah!
And for dinner? I eat what my family eats, whether it be a chicken & rice, pork chops, BLTs or grilled cheese. It’s no big deal.
I’m pretty much a straight shooter with the meal planning. I don’t leave a lot of room for crappy junk food that’s not worth it. Instead, room is left for weekend noshing on things are worth it, like French toast & sausage, greedy pizza slices and ice cream.
