80/20 Fully Raw revised diet plan PLUS a 5 day mini squats challenge YOU IN?
This would be one of the hardest things I've done. So what I did this past week was turn our #standfully rawesome challenge into 80/20. Which means we eat 80% raw foods and 20% animal products eg: yogurt, meat etc... I am feeling a lot better. I was experiencing a lot of fatigue, dizziness and faint type symptoms AND I was always hungry!!! Which made me convert to 80/20 until I get the hang of things.
So my meals have looked like this;
HUGE bowls of mixed fruit salads
|Watermelon fruit salad bowl|
Green juices and/or smoothies
|Green berry smoothie|
1 cup of frozen blue/raspberries
1 scoop of 180 Nutrition Protein powder
1tbs chia seeds
Splash of water
Simply use your preferred blender (I have a Kenwood and Scheffield/Magic bullet style blenders) and watch these vitamins, minerals and protein turn into one jam packed and powerful meal!!! Approx. 500 calories
NB: please ensure you use my 10% promo code 264464 exclusively for all my readers, should you wish to order any 180 Nutrition products. They are amazing!
HUGE plate full of raw vegetables

Fruit salads and raw/cooked vegetables with chicken, beef and fish dishes
|Silver beet and coconut chicken|
This was our dinner tonight. All I had in the fridge was chicken, silver beet, coconut milk, garlic and tarragon herbs. So this is what I whipped up.
500g chicken thighs (cut in bite sizes) seasoned with S&P and
1tsp of tarragon (use whatever herbs you like)
bunch of chopped up silver beet (you can use spinach)
3 gloves of crushed garlic
1 can coconut milk
1. Simply heat sauté pan (I use Chefs toolbox proudly sponsored by Janet Smith)
2. Cook chicken with crushed garlic until golden brown. Set aside.
3. Add chopped silver beet and sauté with chicken juices until soft
4. Pour coconut milk and cook until slightly boiled.
5. Mix chicken through for a few minutes to absorb all the delish flavours and voila!
Super quick, super tasty and so yummy with crusty bread if I was eating it!!! ha ha Otherwise with brown rice or quinoa this would be amazing!!!
