Anvanca Diet – Day 12: Total Calories 1300
Breakfast: A breakfast, which is high in protein and complex carbohydrates, has been shown to provide the most staying power during the morning. Each meal has been selected because it fits within the guidelines of the diet plan, and it provides a healthy dose of both nutrients.
Anvanca® Yogurt Parfait (Serves 1)
8 oz. of low fat or Greek plain vanilla yogurt
½ cup of strawberries
½ cup of blueberries
2 tablespoons of sliced almonds
1 tablespoon of honey
In a suitable size glass or bowl, pour ½ the honey on the bottom of the container. Add ½ the yogurt. Add either the blueberries or the strawberries. Over the berries, place 1 tablespoon of almonds. Add the remainder of the yogurt. Add the other berries and ½ of the nuts. Drizzle the remaining honey on top.
Lunch: The goal of a good lunch is the balance between protein, fiber, and fat. Given the low number of carbs, we can see an insulin spike. We provide for a mid-day snack so that you can keep your blood sugar stable.

The Mediterranean diet has been linked to many benefits including weight loss, heart health, brain heath, cancer prevention, and others. Theory is, people living around the Mediterranean generally live longer and suffer less from cancer and heart disease. This has been linked to an active lifestyle, low rates of obesity, and a diet low in red meat, sugar, and saturated fats. The diet is also high in fresh produce, nuts, fish, garlic, and a host of other helpful herbs.
