Welcome to Week 4!
At the end of this week I will be sending out 2 of the 4 goodie packages to two readers who have been involved the most during this plan. You still have a chance to join in, so don’t be shy and let us know how it has been going!
During week 4 we will be cutting out all white grains. That means, no more white rice or products with white flour. We want to stick to good for you complex carbs.
Here is a basic list of the kinds of grains you want to eat:
Brown rice- To make the perfect brown rice CLICK HERE
Whole wheat pasta
Whole grain bread
In terms of the amount try to stick to about a 1/2 a cup serving. You can have a little more or less. You know yourself best, so do what you feel is right for you.
Instead of sugar loaded boxed cereal try out one of these recipes:
Good For You Granola– amazing over yogurt or with milk
Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cereal– made with oats and protein powder
Breakfast of Champions Oatmeal
Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal– These are perfect since you bake it once and they last all week. Great to grab and go.
If you are craving pizza, try this recipe using a handful of ingredients that are good for you- Whole Wheat Pizza
These Fudge Brownies are made with oat flour and you can also try Apple Pie made with a whole wheat crust.
Will you be able to handle week 4? Do you usually stick to whole grains?
Thanks for joining!
