Lentil Tacos

lunch/dinner recipes Apr 26, 2018

Legumes, such as lentils and beans are an easy to make and versatile protein option while doing your Metabolic Balance® program. They are easy to cook in batches, they store well and can be spiced to your taste. I used black lentils because they don't need to be soaked and can cook while I do other things.


Here is what you need:

your choice and amount of legumes, as listed on your Metabolic Balance®  plan

romaine lettuce and tomatoes, or a combination of other vegetables

Ham and Veggies

lunch/dinner recipes Feb 08, 2018

I have to admit, I love the simplicity of the Metabolic Balance® meals. But then I am a fan of simple anything. I love the concept of one simple protein per meal, I add complexity by being creative with my vegetable-lettuce combinations and I always have a delicious dressing. The simplicity of the meals allows me to really taste all the flavors and I never feel stuffed or too full and my body likes it, because she can focus on digesting one protein at a time. For this meal, ham is the...

Metabolic Balance®  gives me the energy to do just that, and while I can appreciate a more complex meal, my body really resonates more with a simple meal. Here is one idea:

Tofu-Dip

lunch/dinner recipes Feb 08, 2018

Many people aren’t too familiar with tofu. Tofu is one of those versatile, can’t go wrong plant-proteins. I always make sure I buy organic and if you can find it, I’d recommend you get organic and sprouted tofu. Having the tofu sprouted makes it easier for the body to break down. Tofu doesn’t have much of it’s own flavor, you can really add tasty spices. One trick I use: I squeeze my tofu between a few sheets of paper towel to get rid off some of the water before...

White Bean Dip

lunch/dinner recipes Feb 08, 2018

Beans are another source of an easy, plant-based protein. Many come in cans, which makes them easy to have around, and if you prefer to use dried beans and cook them yourself, even better. Bottom line is: they are easy to store and use as they keep well. This bean dip can be prepared with any kind of bean that is listed on your plan. Again, it’s an easy recipe to batch, and take with you. I love to add fresh herbs to this and image myself somewhere in the Mediterranean, over looking the...

Nut and Seed Salad

lunch/dinner recipes Dec 04, 2017

Many Metabolic Balance® Plans have Nut and Seed combos as a protein option. Nuts and seeds are another nutritional powerhouse, and a great alternative to animal proteins and cereals. When you combine almonds with either pumpkin or sunflower seeds, you’ll get a well balanced amino acid (protein) profile. In addition to vitamins B and E, they contain abundant dietary fiber, which aids digestion.

Before consumption, they should be roasted, soaked or cooked. 

This is an easy recipe...
