A Balanced Day of Eats: Example Meals

This is your most important meal. You want to eat something high in fiber and protein that will keep you full and amped with plenty of energy. Grains are a great option with a limitless amount of fruits. 
  • Oatmeal with flax seeds, almonds, and granola
  • Grapes
  • Mango

Be sure to make this meal fun. You can throw in a snack, best time to sneak in vegetables and fruits, and try something tasty. You should try grabbing a nice cubical like Tupperware that can help guide potion sizes.
  • Fresh Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Cheese slice with tomatoes and mixed greens
  • Pretzels

Load up the flavor. You want to be sure to choose a meal that makes your entire efforts of eating well pay off. Don't be afraid to indulge in pasta lightly topping it off with a load of vegetables! Dinner should be a decent size not big enough to make you feel stuffed instead of satisfied, less is more ladies.
  • Pasta
  • Olive Oil
  • Sauteed Roasted Garlic Red Tomatoes

Make it good and nutritious. Craving something sweet? Well you can still opt for a healthy sweet with fruits that contain natural sugars and some light Greek yogurt which adds a nice boost of protein to it.
  • Strawberries with Greek Yogurt Parfait and fat free whipped cream

Always Remember:
  1. Atleast 5 fruits or vegetables a day
  2. 2-3 dairy servings
  3. Lean proteins about 3 oz per serving
  4. Atleast 8 glasses of water
  5. 2 healthy oils
