Anvanca Diet – Day 7: Total Calories 1225
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.
Bowl of Whole Grain Cereal with Fresh Fruit
1 ½ cups of Cheerios® or similar whole grain cereal
½ cup of blueberries or strawberries
Splenda for sweetening
6 oz. of Skim Milk
Prepare cereal to your liking
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.
Couscous Pilaf: Have one serving (Link to Day 2 for recipe)
Anvanca® Greek Mussels & Linguini: (Serves 4)
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 shallots, thinly sliced
2 pounds mussels, cleaned and de-bearded
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 cup finely chopped Italian leaf parsley
1 cup Greek yogurt
4oz of linguini
In a large pot, over medium heat, sweat the shallots in olive oil until translucent. Raise the heat to high and add all of the mussels; cover and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until all of the mussels have opened. Take off the heat and transfer the mussels to a serving dish, leaving the liquid in the pot. Return the pot to the heat and add the wine and parsley to the liquid. Bring to a boil and reduce by 1/3. While reducing, cook the linguini in boiling water for around 8 minutes, less if you like al dente. Remove and drain. Take the pot off the heat and stir in the yogurt. Mix thoroughly. Pour the sauce over the mussels and linguini. Cook the broccoli according to the package instructions ( 1 serving is ½ cup)
Dessert: ½ cup of slow churn vanilla ice cream
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.
