PiYo Menu Planner – Week #6

1

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: Cinnamon Apple Breakfast Porridge has a ton of nuts for great protein and keeping you full throughout the morning. I also love that it is grain free and dairy free.  Just be sure to use coconut oil.  PiYo Perks!  Nuts, fruit, and healthy fats.

Meal #2:  Protein Egg and Quinoa Salad Jars.  Want to be the envy of the office?  Bring in one of these Pinterest-worthy salads in a jar!  Just pack this jar in your work bag, shake it up at lunch time, and pour it out onto a plate.  PiYo Perks!  Egg, veggies, and healthy fats galore.

Meal #3:  Mini Balsamic Mushroom Caps.  These are worthy of a party… or the perfect bites for lunch!  I love how each one is like a teeny-tiny salad.  So cute and delish.  PiYo Perks!  Tons of veggies and free foods, like spices.

Meal #4:  Guacamole Deviled Eggs.  Two comfort foods in one, right?  PiYo Perks!  Healthy fats and proteins, plus lots of flavor and a little jalapeno kick.

Meal #5:  Layered Ratatouille reminds me of the month I spent one summer in France.  Such a classic, and just layers on layers of delicious, seasoned vegetables.  You won’t even miss meat in this international dish.  In fact, you can remind your kids about the Disney/Pixar movie and have them join the fun too.  Bon appetit!  PiYo Perks!  Veggies and healthy fats.

Bonus Recipe:  Salted Chocolate Iced Coffee, just use chocolate Shakeology powder and almond milk to make it PiYo compliant!  You know I love my coffee and coffee shops, and summer calls for iced coffee.
