EXAMPLE MEAL PLAN

Make sure you mix up your meals with a good variety of foods, keeping fresh veggies top of mind. A typical day plan for someone who wants to lose weight:

BREAKFAST

Scrambled Eggs + 1 Slice Multigrain Toast
Coffee or Tea
Water

Lightly whisk your eggs with 1tbsp milk, salt & pepper for a fluffy texture. Place eggs into a pan on medium heat with a 1/2tsp butter and after a couple of minutes start to gently pull the edges of eggs in from the edge using a spatula. Keep doing this until the eggs look almost cooked, but still soft. Remove from pan. The residual heat will continue to cook the eggs to perfection by the time you eat them.

MORNING TEA

1 x Grapefruit

If you are feeling hungry a great piece of fruit to curb your appetite is grapefruit. Make sure you buy the pink ones as they are sweeter than the other varieties. Grapefruits are very low GI and does not significantly increase your insulin levels, which means it will keep you fuller for longer and take the edge away from lunch.

LUNCH

Tuna Salad (1 sml can tuna, rocket, tomato, sliced carrot, shallot, squeeze of lemon juice & drizzle of olive oil, salt & pepper)

AFTERNOON TEA

Carrot sticks and hummus

DINNER

Fish with baked sweet potato, snow peas & broccolini

Try pan frying the seasoned fish in a non-stick pan with a small amount of olive oil for 2-3mins each side. Or wrap the fish in a foil package along with 2 fresh slices of lemon, a dusting of paprika and the broccolini. Bake in a moderate oven for 15mins or until cooked through.
