My foods you see here include frozen veggies, bags of broccoli, green beans, asparagus, stir-fry veggies, cauliflower. There are sweet potatoes, bananas, grapefruit, blueberries and of course oatmeal. There is turkey breast, ground turkey, lean ground beef, beef jerky, salad greens, green tea Crystal Light, sweetener, Mrs. Dash seasonings, eggs and my new diet scale. I'm not big on measuring food but I'll give it a try. I want to make sure I'm eating correct portions but I probably won't measure everything. I'm all set and ready to go for the upcoming week and I'll be meeting my consultant to see what changes in my workout need to be made.
I tried a new recipe last night because I was craving something sweet after dinner. I alternate protein powder flavors when I order to switch things up. Second to Beverly International's UMP I like Lean Protein Dessert Shake by BSN. I have tried chocolate fudge pudding flavor, yum and cinnamon roll which I'm using now. Here's a cinnamon roll recipe:
- 2 scoops Lean Dessert Cinnamon Roll flavor
- 1/4 cup egg whites
- 1/4 cup water
- Dash of salt
Mix into a brownie-like batter, put in microwave safe container and microwave for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. I used small individual dessert dishes and microwaved each for 1 minute. Optional: top with a tablespoon of whipped heavy cream. You won't believe how good it tastes and you can use this recipe for any protein powder flavor when you crave something sweet.
I recommend subscribing to Beverly International Newsletter. They have awesome recipes for bodybuilders and figure competitors.
