The Beet’s Plant-Based Diet Recipes, Week 2, Day 6
Breakfast: JUST Egg Classic Omelet
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, 5 grams of protein and no carbs. The fiber in the spinach and the protein in JUST Egg make for a filling, satisfying meal.
Why It's Healthy: This veggie burger is high in fiber and potassium thanks to the seeds, beans and prunes in the mix. One cup of prunes alone has 12 grams of fiber. A homemade veggie burger also ensures you cut out all the processed ingredients in a prepackaged burger.
Why It Works for Weight Loss: Using lettuce instead of a bun cuts out the refined carbohydrates of the bread and you save 120 calories that would be in a burger bun. The veggie burger is made up of high fiber foods, which helps regulate your digestive system.
Snack: Popcorn & Almonds
Why It's Healthy: Unsalted popcorn is a great source of fiber and is low in fat. Almonds are high in Vitamin E and are loaded with antioxidants.
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: Broccoli Almond Salad
Why It's Healthy: Broccoli is full of vitamins and antioxidants, including a disease-fighting agent that boosts immunity even as it helps take the stress off your organs. Edamame is high in protein: One cup of cooked edamame has about 18 grams of protein.
Why It Works For Weight Loss: Edamame is a low-calorie, high-fiber and filling food. 1/2 cup of edamame has only 95 calories and contains 4 grams of fiber (16 percent of the daily value.)
