RECIPES - weeks 1&2
Welcome to your first two weeks' worth of healthy, simple, delicious recipes; every single one of which has either been created by OR road-tested by Nesse herself for simplicity, nutritional complexity, and yumminess. If you have any dietary restrictions or are unsure of any suitable substitutes for any of the ingredients below, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to help you out.
Just to be clear - "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day is RUBBISH." If you're not hungry, don't eat. The most important thing to remember about breakfast is that you have all day to 'work off' your breakfast. So if you're gonna go heavy on calories (or simple carbs) (YAY PASTRY), then this is the time. Hopefully we've provided some breakfast recipes that will give you the dose of sweet we often crave in the mornings whilst adding that all-important PROTEIN to the meal to keep you nice and full until lunchtime.
MAIN MEALS (can be lunch or dinner):
Here you'll find, throughout the challenge:
-One-pot options which can be made in bulk. All of these will last at least 3 days, max 4 in the fridge.
-Cook and no-cook salads. Super easy and will last 5 days in the fridge (though best to add any lettuce/leaves on the day of serving or these can get a bit soggy).
-Make-me-when-you-have-a-minute options (weekend lunch or maybe if you have a guest for dinner), when you have a bit more time/fancy something just *slightly* more complicated, but still healthy and DELISH. You'll find protein, calories, and fibre information in all of the recipes.
We highly recommend your get yourself a terrific (plant-based) protein powder and plan to have one EVERY DAY for the duration of the challenge. We've included a meal-replacement protein shake which includes that protein powder below... this is to be a substitute for lunch or perhaps dinner (NOT breakfast... don't have a protein shake on an empty stomach EVER), but we recommend a scoop or two of that powder in water OR (plant) milk EVERY DAY, regardless of what else you're eating.
