Yesterday I found this youtube video on planning out your meals. Here's a picture summary of the plan:
Inspired by that, I'm trying it out today. Here's my day so far, the sticky note way!
Breakfast - 9oz of house brand firm tofu scrambled with the VwaV spices and spinach.
Lunch - smoothie! 16 oz of kikkoman unsweetened vanilla soy milk, 1 banana, 2 tbsp rice protein, 1 tbsp ground flax, 1/2 of a frozen peach.
But then sometimes I think "self, you actually do a good job most days of eating a healthy, varied diet - why not just be a good vegan and go with that?" And on that note, from this thread, I found the following info regarding P90X and being a vegan.
From Tony Horton's chef, Missy Costello.
In the vegan diet you will get your fat, carbs and proteins sometimes from the same source, so just watch the calorie intake and try to eat as clean as possible.
Here is Missy’s suggest
A.m. H2O upon waking up
Drink greens mixture about 30 minutes after waking
Breakfast: High fiber, whole grain cereal
Snack: Nuts (handful)
Lunch: Protein and green veggies
Snack: Fruit and Veggie
Dinner: Grains and Veggies
Optional: Fruit, Veggie Starch
You’ll get your protein from Quinoa, legumes, nuts, you’ll also get your healthy fats from nuts too. Don’t worry too much about how to label the food as to get in a nice, healthy variety.
Sub in legumes and nuts for proteins and green veggies for dairy.
And a picture of dinner! The empty spot on the kiddo's plate was soon filled with pasta.
And just for the heck of it, here's "appliance row"
And my door of kiddo art!
