When you search online, you’ll find tons of menu plans for different workouts and regimens… but once you’ve followed a plan for a month, you might start to feel bored or complacent about your food!
So I’ve decided to find PiYo-friendly meals every week that keep you motivated to stay on track while getting the flavor and variety you crave. I’ve scoured the internet to find FIVE recipes per week for meals you can feed yourself AND your family without sacrificing nutrition or health.
If you aren’t familiar with the PiYo diet, I recommend you download my FREE PiYo Food and Training Guide to get started.
Here’s how we plan our menu…
- Meal #1 is a Breakfast/Brunch dish, which you can eat any time of day if you choose!
- Meal #2 is Soup or Salad, perfect for easy prep or even making things ahead.
- Meal #3 is Meatless, perfect for a Meatless Monday or a vegetarian diet.
- Meal #4 is a Comfort Food Makeover, a meal that is inspired by what might otherwise be “cheat” guilty pleasure meal but made PiYo friendly!
- Meal #5 is International, bringing exotic and flavorful tastes to mind.
Meal #1: Dragon Smoothie Bowl is a great way to try a fruit that may be new to you, the dragonfruit or pitaya! PiYo Perks! This bowl is full of fruit, granola, and coconut water to keep you fueled and full.
Meal #2: California Grilled Chicken Avocado and Mango Salad, say that one five times fast! I like a salad that feels like a full meal versus just a side. This one has protein, as well as some sweetness from the mangoes. The dressing is a vinaigrette for a PiYo-friendly lunch or even dinner! PiYo Perks! Fruits and veggies, lean protein, and healthy fats.
Meal #3: Broccoli Stalk, Kimchi, & Zucchini Tangle With Honey Tamari Almonds. One of my best friends is half Korean, and she loves that kimchi and other Korean flavors are trending right now. You can have a meatless, hearty dish with a little kick to boot with this recipe. PiYo Perks! Tons of vegetables, almonds, healthy fats, and just a little honey for sweetness.
Meal #4: Light + Healthy Chicago Style Pizza. I told you I’d give you comfort food makeovers! Something tells me your entire family will like this one. PiYo Perks! The light mozzarella cheese is what makes this dish, and it’s allowed on PiYo. There are so many hidden veggies in this dish too, it will taste sinful but be heavenly instead. The blogger who made this recipe is on point with her plant-based focus.
Meal #5: Chicken Ropa Vieja brings the Cuban flavor to your kitchen! It’s also a great dish for your slow cooker. PiYo Perks! Lean protein, tons of veggies, some healthy fats… and you can even serve it with some brown cilantro-lime rice as the author recommends.
