A plant-based meal plan is when a majority of your plate is made up of plants; animal products and proteins are more of an accompaniment.
Plant-Based Grocery List:
- - Broccoli, or any vegetables you prefer
- - Berries, or any fruits you prefer
- - Hummus, or any legumes you prefer
- - Seeds and nuts
- - Sweet potatoes, or any starchy vegetables you prefer
Plant-Based Breakfast Idea: Spread hummus on a slice of toasted rye bread. Top with slices of avocado and tomato and a sprinkle of smoked paprika.
Following a low-carb meal plan means trying to fill half of your plate with non-starchy vegetables, a quarter with protein and a quarter with a starchy vegetable or legume.
Low-Carb Grocery List:
- - Avocados
- - Coconut milk
- - Shrimp
- - Eggs
- - Full-fat yogurt
Low-Carb Breakfast Idea: Make your favorite chia pudding recipe with chia seeds, full-fat yogurt and/or some milk. When you're ready to eat it, top the chia pudding with chopped nuts and fresh berries.
