Kristin Shaffer How I Diet

Over the years I've developed tricks and tips to stay on track with my clean eating diet, and the one I'm going to share today is one of my favorites.

You see, ever since I was a little girl I HATED to eat vegetables. I'm not kidding.

Can't...

Stand...

'Em...

And as you know, if you're trying to get into crazy incredible shape, your diet should be filled with high fiber vegetables.

Yeah that presented a problem for me.

So I needed to be creative to make this work for me. I had to develop an absolutely delicious meal chock full of fibrous veggies that not only was nutritious, but would satisfy my voracious appetite.

Check out today's FABulously Fit Friday where I show you exactly what I do to destroy my vegetable hating alter ego.

Recipe:

1 clove garlic
1 cucumber
1 half onion
2 sweet peppers (yellow, orange, or red)
3 stalks of celery
2 zucchini (yellow or green)
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon concentrate
2 tablespoons lime concentrate

-chop up all veggies first
-heat skillet with olive oil
-add garlic and onions and stir until lightly browned
-add all remaining veggies
-squirt lemon and lime juice on mixture and stir
-cook on low to medium heat until desired consistency

The key is to stick with the more fibrous vegetables if you want to substitute others you favor. Stay away from the the starchies as much as possible to get the most volume and lower glycemic index (meaning how quickly they raise blood sugar after consumption).

I usually cook the veggies until they are slightly brown, which takes awhile but boy are they delicious that way.

As you will see this is not a low calorie meal. Hence, why it's for post-workout. My other meals during the day are not quite as volumous (see: Meals for Fat Loss).

Here are approximate nutritional measurements:

-1000 grams in raw veggie weight
-350 calories (without lean protein)
-78 g carbs
-18 g protein
-6 g fat


Do you have any delicious veggie dishes to share? Let me know below in the comments!

With love,

Kristin

Parmesan cheese…should I NOT use that during my contest prep?
--JamilahWi

Hi Jamilah! I typically will cut out parm cheese in that last few weeks before stepping on stage. But when you decide to do that is all about how close you are to your goal.

I hope that helps!

With love,

Kristin
