During Shred10, we are trying to follow these guidelines:
Shred10 Recipes & Favorite Meals
Juice Plus+ Complete shakes
My typical breakfast is a Complete shake or two. With 13g of plant-based protein and 8g of fiber per serving, it makes for a complete meal to start the day. Mixed with unsweetened almond milk, I always add chia seeds to my shakes for even more fiber and omega-3. Of course, you can also blend with even more fruits and vegetables; like banana, strawberry, kale, and spinach.
Vegan French toast
When looking for an egg-less french toast recipe recently (eggs are Shred10 friendly, we just happened to be out), I happened upon a recipe from The Minimalist Baker for vegan french toast. We also use gluten-free bread from Aldi to make this work for our family.
Sausage & Eggs
When I start my day with protein, it helps me stay full longer, so sausage and eggs are another favorite breakfast of mine. Sometimes I’ll even make an omelet with mushrooms and spinach as well.
Gluten-Free Waffles with Nut Butter
Dairy-Free Yogurt with Fresh Fruit
Fruits & Vegetables
Apples, bananas, berries, snap peas, bell peppers, really any fruit or vegetable. You can dip in no sugar added peanut butter or hummus for added protein.
Juice Plus+ Complete bars
Juice Plus+ Complete bars are great for a mid-afternoon snack or post-workout. Low-glycemic, gluten-free, non- dairy and vegetarian with 5 or 10g of protein and 5g of fiber. My favorite is Tart Cherry + Honey, but if you crave some chocolate, the Dark Chocolate + Fig may be right up your alley.
Popsicles don’t have to be full of sugar, especially if you make your own. Blend fruit with coconut water, almond milk, or your favorite dairy-free milk.
Lunch & Dinner
Stir-fries with protein, rice & veggies
Our go-to, in a rush dinner is to stir fry some chicken or beef with veggies (broccoli, carrots, peppers, bok choy) and serve over rice or quinoa. In an even bigger rush, the veggie steamer bags are great.
My son’s current favorite meal is to make Qdoba-style burrito bowls. We even make the ingredients ahead of time and pack for his lunch. We use brown rice, blacks beans, chicken, avocado, and various salsas.
One of the best solutions for my family has been to subscribe to meal prep boxes, Sunbasket being my favorite! You can read more about my experience with meal prep boxes here – Meal Delivery Services. One reason I love Sunbasket is they offer 18 different meal options each week and clearly identify meals that are gluten-free and dairy-free. They are also very easy to prepare with most ingredients ready to go.
We’ve also started using the meal delivery service EveryPlate. Their meals are a lot simpler than SunBasket and good for the whole family. Most of their meals incorporate butter, but we omit or use a substitute. Even without using EveryPlate, you can follow the same concept – protein, rice or potato, and vegetable. Proteins include steak, pork chop, chicken breast or thigh, and fish. And a large portion of the veggies and potatoes are baked in the oven with just a little oil and seasoning.
