The Herbalife diet replaces 2 meals out of the day with shakes and nutritional supplements designed to suppress appetite and provide nutrients. The one meal left up to you encourages a balanced meal of lean meat, fresh vegetables, fresh fruit or potatoes. If you’re looking for some meal or snack ideas for the Herbalife diet, here are a few ideas.
Vegetables can be used to make all sorts snacks or meals. As a snack, vegetables can be eaten raw just by themselves. If you want a dip, you can try some vinegar or lemon juice. You can also prepare it in several types of meals. You can toss together some veggies for a nice salad. Just add vinegar, lemon juice and olive oil for dressing. Alternatively, you can mix them all together in a stir fry. You can also steam them for a yummy treat.
2. Chicken or Fish
White chicken meat with the fat and skin trimmed off is a healthy, lean meat. Grill or bake your chicken or fish for best results. Fried chicken and fish in batter is not healthy option. Instead, marinate it in vinegar, lemon juice, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce or any other marinade you can think of. Then, put it in the oven and bake it or grill it up on your grill. Add it to one of your vegetable dishes from above to round out your meal.
Shredded tuna or chicken also makes an excellent spread for a sandwich. Just mix it with some low-fat or no-fat mayo and spread it on your sandwich. Add some pickles for some vegetables, and you have a more balanced meal.
Fruit makes a great snack idea. Most fruits are snacking ready, and you can take them on the go. Apples, bananas and oranges make the best on-the-go snack foods. You can also mix together fruit for your meal and prepare a healthy fruit salad. Add a cup worth of frozen fruit to your shake meals to add a little solid substance to your Herbalife diet.
Potatoes can be prepared so many ways. Bake a small potato as a snack or as part of your meal. Mashed potatoes make an excellent side dish for any meal. You can make potatoes as a meal all in their own as well. Whip up a batch of scalloped potatoes, add some veggies and Canadian bacon, and add a few veggies. This gives a well balanced meal that you can enjoy.
With just one meal a day, it is important on the Herbalife diet to be creative and prepare something you enjoy. However, you’ll want to make sure that you have a balanced meal with plenty of lean meat and vegetables. Snacking on vegetables between your shakes and meal is a good way to keep you feeling full without packing on too many calories.
