The Beet’s Plant-Based Diet Recipes, Week 1, Day 2
Breakfast: Mango Coconut Smoothie
Why It's Healthy: Cauliflower is high in fiber and vitamin B. Mango promotes healthy digestion. Mangos have 122 milligrams of Vitamin C per medium gruit, which is double the amount in an orange.
Why It Works for Weight Loss: Coconut milk is satisfying and the fatty acid profile can potentially help with aiding weight loss efforts.
Dinner: JUST Egg Fried Rice
Why It's Healthy: JUST Egg is free of cholesterol and has similar amounts of protein with less saturated fat than chicken eggs. JUST Egg is also non-GMO and free of artificial flavors.
Why It Works for Weight Loss: One serving of JUST Egg contains 45 calories, 7 grams of protein and no carbs. The fiber in the mixed vegetables and the protein in JUST Egg make for a filling, satisfying meal.
Snack: Oranges & Almonds
Why It’s Healthy: Oranges are high in vitamin C and help boost your immune system.
Why It Works for Weight Loss: The ratio of unsaturated fat to protein in almonds, along with the fiber, helps to reduce hunger. They are also low in carbs and high in protein.
Dinner: Chickpea Veggie Pasta
Why It’s Healthy: Spinach is rich in vitamin K, which is healthy for blood clotting, strong bones, and fast metabolism. Tomatoes are packed with vitamin C: One medium-sized tomato has 28 percent of the RDA.
Why It Works for Weight Loss: Chickpea pasta is a great pasta alternative because it is loaded with protein and fiber. The omega-9 fatty acid in avocado oil helps your body learn to burn fat for fuel and healthy fat can keep you feeling fuller longer.
