Meal Plans and Recipes!

This is my second week on Turbo 10. I lost 2 lbs last week! Yay!! This week I thought I would share a Low Carb Day Meal Plan and a High Carb Day Meal Plan with you, as well as a Low Carb recipe.

On a typical LOW CARB DAY, with Turbo 10, my meal plan looks something like this:

Breakfast: Bod-e Chocolate Protein Shake
Snack: Bod-e Burn and ¼ cup of nuts (I buy unsalted, raw nuts and roast them. I then mix one small bag of salted nuts to 3 bags of the ones I roasted. It cuts way down on the salt but still has flavor)
Lunch: Bod-e Chocolate Protein Shake
Snack: Crock Pot Pizza Soup (recipe below)
Dinner: Grilled Steak, Roasted Brussels Sprouts and side salad

Breakfast: Bod-e Chocolate Protein Shake
Snack: Bod-e Burn and one Ezekiel English Muffin with 1 tsp Land O’ Lakes Butter with Olive Oil
Lunch: Bod-e Chocolate Protein Shake
Snack: Roast Beef, Cheese, Spinach and Arugula Wrap on Low Carb Tortilla
Dinner: Pulled Pork on Whole Grain Bun with Roasted baby carrots

About This Recipe
“This is a variation recipe from “Mercy”. More tomatoes, less sodium…”

1 (16 ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
2 (16 ounce) cans diced tomatoes
2 (16 ounce) cans low sodium beef broth
1 medium red bell pepper, diced (I prefer green peppers so I use them instead)

2 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 lb Italian sausage, cooked and drained*
3 ounces sliced pepperoni*
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
2 teaspoons oregano
2 teaspoons italian seasoning
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded (this is VERY stringy when melted. Next time I may try shredded Parmesan instead)

Place all ingredients in the crock pot except the cheese. Cook on low 8 hours. Sprinkle cheese on each individual serving.
