Moderate Meal Ideas

By on October 14, 2014

The more I follow my moderate meal plan the more I love it. Because of the structure of this plan, I don’t have to obsess over what to eat or when to eat. I know that I need to eat 3 square meals per day; breakfast, lunch and dinner. If I want to, I’m allowed to have 2 snacks, 1 after lunch and 1 after dinner. As long as I fulfill the exchange requirements each meal, I’m able to rotate what I eat so that I don’t get bored. I love the structure it’s provided so that I’m free to be creative in peace.

Here are a few examples of what I eat for my 3 daily meals in case you’d like to join me.

Breakfast

English Muffin Breakfast

  • 1/2 large English muffin
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 tbsp butter
  • 1 sliced apple

Toast and Eggs Breakfast

  • 2 slice bread
  • 1 whole eggs
  • 1 orange

Parfait Breakfast

  • 1/4 cup granola
  • 3/4 cup cottage cheese
  • 8 almonds
  • 3/4 cup blueberries

Lunch is the meal that I love the most. If I ever get hunger queues, it’s around lunchtime.

Lunch

Pesto Chicken Plate

  • 2/3 cup cooked rice
  • 3 oz cooked chicken
  • 1/2 tbsp  pesto sauce
  • 1 cup cooked brussel sprouts

Gouda and Apple Sandwich

  • 1/2 bagel
  • 1 oz turkey or chicken
  • 1.5 oz gouda cheese
  • sliced apple (1/2 on sandwich)
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter (with other 1/2 apple)

Honey Tempeh Lunch

  • 1.5 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 block tempeh
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup mixed cooked vegetables
  • 1/3 cup brown rice

I prefer my dinner to feel lighter because I don’t like going to bed with a full stomach.

Dinner

Beef Taco Dinner

  • 3 to 4 small tortillas
  • 4 oz cooked ground beef
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup cabbage or shredded lettuce
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheese

Edamame and Rice Dinner

  • 2/3 cup rice + soy sauce
  • 1 cup edamame
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 cup chopped vegetables
  • 1 cup yogurt

Pita Pizza

  • 1 pita bread
  • 1 oz chicken slices or pepperoni
  • 8 large olives, sliced
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup sliced bell peppers
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheese

I think you’ll find this way of eating to be incredibly satisfying as well. Does it sound appealing to you? If not, what’s missing?
