Boxer's Diet Week 1 - Rainbow Lunch
For those who know me well they know that I am training full-time right now, which means eating super healthy full-time too. My diet is high-protein, low-carb and almost 0 sugar/sodium/fat - unless it's "healthy" fat.
So in order to stick to my no-meat, no-dairy, no-gluten year I have to get a little creative. Beans are my new best-friend and I've rediscovered my love affair with colourful vegetables!
With that said here's a dish I've been typically eating for lunch this past week, I called it:
The Salad: Romaine greens, spinach, red cabbage, and carrots topped off with Mrs. Dash Chipoltle spice and a balsamic vinegar, extra-virgin olive oil and lemon juice mixture for dressing.
The Protein: Black beans, red pepper and corn (to sweeten).
This dinner is so packed full of nutrients that although it may not seem like much I feel quite satisfied after this dish and keeps me full for at least 3 hours.
I fill my plate with salad the greens salad and enjoy it with 1 cup of the bean salad.
NEXT WEEK: Why breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day!
