Anvanca Diet – Day 6: 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® 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 across the 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 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 ¼ cup of chick peas or garbanzo beans. Drizzle 3 tbsp. of Fat-Free Italian Dressing (or another Fat Free variety). Round out the meal with a 1 cup of 1% fat cottage cheese and 2” slice of French Baguette style bread.
Snack: ½ cup of shelled pistachios
Mustard Encrusted Tuna Steaks (Serves 2)
2 Tuna Steaks (6 ounces each)
¼ teaspoon of salt
⅛ teaspoon of pepper
¼ cup of reduced fat sour cream
2 tablespoons of ground mustard
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
Garlic Spinach (serves 3)
½ tablespoon unsalted butter
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 (10 ounce) bag of fresh spinach
½ teaspoon garlic salt
½ teaspoon of lemon juice
Pre-heat the grill on a medium-high heat. Add all of the mustard crust ingredients into a bowl, and mix well. Once mixed, add the crust to one side of the steak. Grill starting with the un-crusted side down. Flip once after sufficiently cooked. Cook to taste. Average grilling time is 5-10 minutes depending upon your grill– Covered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 9 to 11 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally.
Garlic Spinach: Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic; cook and stir until the garlic is fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the spinach a few handfuls at a time, stirring until wilted before adding more, about 5 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice, and season with garlic salt.
Dessert: Enjoy one 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.
