Anvanca Diet – Day 18: Total Calories 1500
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® Basic Feta & Spinach Omelet
3 egg whites
¼ cup of thawed frozen spinach (substitutes: onions, mushrooms, green peppers, etc.)
1 oz. (2 tablespoons) of reduced fat feta cheese
PAM® or non-stick cooking spray
2 slices of toasted whole wheat bread
1 pat of margarine
Pre-heat a skillet. Spray with non-stick cooking oil. Add veggies and egg to a bowl. Mix well. Add salt and pepper (I recommend garlic salt). Pour egg mixture into the skillet. When cooked on one-side, flip the omelet. Add the cheese to the top. Fold the omelet and serve with buttered toast.
Lunch: The goal of a good lunch is the balance between protein, fiber, and fat. The key is not to overeat to avoid an insulin spike. We provide for a mid-day snack so that you can keep your blood sugar stable.
The Simple Salad: Prepare 2 cups of tossed salad. This can include lettuce and any other veggies that you like. Only veggies – no croutons, bacon bits, etc.. To the salad, add a ⅓ cup of chick peas or garbanzo beans. Drizzle 3 tbsp. of Fat-Free Italian Dressing (or another Fat Free variety). Add a can of Lean Chicken Noodle Soup from Progresso® or similar brand
Snack: Pear and a mini-box of raisins (about 50).
Lime Marinade Chicken (Serves 2)
5 tablespoons key lime juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 cups of cooked brown rice
1 cups of cooked broccoli
In a sealable plastic bag, mix the key lime juice, honey, garlic, and lemon pepper. Place the chicken in the bag, seal, and shake to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes, turning the bag occasionally. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. Grill the marinated chicken about 8 minutes on each side, until no longer pink and juices run clear. Discard remaining marinade.
While grilling cook the rice and broccoli according to the packaging instructions (½ cup serving for each)
Dessert: Enjoy a slice of ricotta cheesecake (meal plan day 1)
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.
