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: Asparagus Benedict. Decadence doesn’t have to end with a healthy meal plan. This is perfect for a luxurious brunch, right? Just substitute PiYo-friendly alternatives for the butter, I swear it works. PiYo Perks! Vegetables, eggs, healthy fats, and free foods for flavor.
Meal #2: Slow Cooker Chipotle Chicken Zucchini “Fideo” Soup. Don’t you love a recipe you can set and forget? Slow cookers are the best! This soup has chicken for protein and tons of vegetables too. It’s perfect for summer. Just skip the cheese! PiYo Perks! Lean protein, veggies, healthy fats, and lots of spice.
Meal #3: Market Mediterranean Pizza. I know, I’m at it with the pizza again, but something about summer and grilling season makes me think about Mediterranean-style pizzas. Could it be my recent trip to Italy? Probably! PiYo Perks! Tons of veggies and greens, almond flour, and healthy fats. Because olive oil!
Meal #4: Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potato. There’s a barbecue chain near my house (welcome to the South!) that serves up a stuffed baked potato topped with pulled pork, but it’s a total fat and calorie bomb. I love this alternative piggie potato, using sweet potato and lots of spices. You can even whip up your own PiYo-friendly BBQ sauce. PiYo Perks! Lean protein, sweet potato, and tons of spice.
Meal #5: Savory Indian Pancake. Indian food is delicious, and so flavorful. I firmly believe that healthy food can taste good, you just have to make the right choices! This savory pancake is perfect for an “international” night at home. I bet they’d reheat perfectly for a packed lunch the next day too! PiYo Perks! Almond and tapioca flour, coconut milk, peppers, herbs, and spices.
