Dang.. you are prepared! I'm having...

Breakfast:
24oz Iced Americano (no milk, 2 splenda)
IP crunchy cereal

Lunch:
Shredded cabbage salad w/ celery and lemon juice and oil for dressing
IP Chili packet w/ added veggies

Dinner:
Ground turkey, seasoned and made into a patty served with a giant dill pickle, mustard, and possibly rutabaga fries

Snack: I don't usually get this far, I'm too full by this time, BUT.. if I do, I'm having an IP Pina colada drink mix.

I haven't quite had time to come up with good recipes yet. Any suggestions for really simple & fast recipes?! I'm constantly on the move and all I have available at lunch time is a microwave. =)

I haven't quite had time to come up with good recipes yet. Any suggestions for really simple & fast recipes?! I'm constantly on the move and all I have available at lunch time is a microwave. =)

I have soup with 1 cup veggies for lunch every weekday - my on the go tip: On Sundays I chop, EVOO spray, & roast a head of cauliflower and 4-5 ribs celery, enough for 5 cups chopped veggies, with 4 garlic cloves at 350deg for ~30 minutes that I puree with some spices. I parse this out into 5 microwaveable bowls that I store in the fridge. Then in the mornings I just bring my shaker of chicken broth (adds 5 calories/cup from 1g protein) and my packet. At work I can mix up my soup, add it to my cauliflower puree, and nuke it for my quick lunch. I like the Potato Puree, Chicken Soup, and Chicken a la King the best with this puree. I also do a Roasted Poblano, Red Bell Pepper, Jalapeno, & Garlic puree - this works best with the Chicken Soup.

I also have my IP drink with 1 cup veggies (spinach) every weekday morning - that is just putting in 2 handfuls spinach (to fill blender to the top loosely) with 2 cups coffee (or water, tea, etc) & sweetener or extracts (optional), liquify spinach in blender 2 minutes, then I add my IP packet into the blender another 15 seconds. Pour it over ice in my gigantic mug and I am out the door.

I am generally a bit pooped when I get home so I just have my restricted as my 4pm snack. On weightlifting weekdays I can muster the energy to do a more creative IP + 2 egg white recipe for my 4th packet (powered from my 4pm restricted!).

You should ALWAYS eat all your food on this program - we are at such low calories, and ESPECIALLY the packets - they have the most protein to sustain your lean mass. Readjust some meal scheduling if that helps you get everything in - but every day you need 3 IP packets + 4 cups veggies + 8 oz protein. Lol, who thought you'd need to be reminded to eat on a diet. Seriously though - EAT YOUR FOOD!

Example: I had to move my snack to before dinner and split my veggies between breakfast and lunch to get it all in.
