Simple Grocery List For the Vegan 21-Day Fix Diet
The 21-Day Fix is built on the idea of starting a new habit that you will maintain beyond the initial 21 days of the program. This means you are taking on the challenge of not only a new workout routine, but a new diet routine as well. Though the kits do come with recipe books, some of the books may not be clear on how you need to actually set up an effective grocery list regardless of your budget. If you are looking for a simple grocery list, here is what you should be grabbing. This will get you through one week of the program and is broken down according to your containers. Protein Go for things you can always find at most stores. For example, if you are pescatarian wild caught sardines and salmon would be on your grocery list. These are easy to weigh, easy to prepare, and can be put into your containers easily during meal planning. If you are a non-meat eater, you can go with things like greek yogurt (whole fat versions) if dairy is allowed on your dietary plan. People over complicate what it means to do a Vegan 21-Day Fix Diet Program. Keep in mind you can go with an almond yogurt or flax yogurt option as well. The Good Karma company happens to make the most amazing plant-based yogurt for those doing a Vegan 21-Day Fix Program. As well vegan protein powder and veggie burgers (look for gluten-free or make your own) are also options that can meet your daily protein requirement. Vegetables Kale is a vegetable that is becoming increasingly easy to find and simple to prepare. If kale isn't on your list for whatever reason, you do have other options. Brussel sprouts, carrots, cauliflower, mushrooms, and peppers are all easy to prepare. Collard greens are my very favorite wrap item. I love making VeganEggs and wrapping it up with cabbage shreds and spicy peppers! YUM!! Greens are easy to find as well. If you aren't really a chef then these are ideal options to add to your simple grocery list since all you have to do with these is either bake them into 'chips', add them to your smoothie or steam them. Also with the new Trader Joe's Cauliflower Pizza Crust, veggie life is about to get a lot more fun. Fruit With fruit you want something that is easy to prepare and even easier to keep in a container. Ideally you want a cut and eat option. Watermelon is an ideal choice when it is in season. If it isn't in season then you can go with berries and berry mixes. You can also choose to go with mango, banana, kiwi, and of course grapes. The trick with fruits is to remember to keep these in accordance with the amount you are allowed to have, based on the program guides, each day. Remember, fruits do have natural sugars. Carbs When you think of carbs you may automatically go for potatoes or pasta. Instead, expand out to things like beans, white rice or sweet potatoes to feed your microbiota. You can also go with quinoa, peas, gluten-free crackers or waffles, and coconut flour tortillas. All of these are healthy options and easy to work with on the 21-Day Fix. Healthy Fats, dressings, and oils Healthy fats, dressings, nuts, seeds, and oils may be the hardest things to figure out on your diet plan and keep simple for your grocery list. Keep it simple by sticking to avocado, coconut milk, walnuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, and coconut or extra virgin oils. These are easy to find, easy to stock up on, don't cost an arm and a leg, and are easy to mix throughout your recipes to get what you need each day. These are just a few of the grocery list items that can make your diet plan and eating plan easier. These items also keep it simple and give you grocery list that will work for your 21-Day Fix.
