I am counting down the days for New Year New Rules to begin! This year's holidays have been filled with good, but not-so-good for you indulgences. Lots of dessert, honey ham, mashed potatoes, and casseroles. 6 more days and I will be completely free of the most common allergens: dairy, gluten, refined sugars, and a few other things here and there such as corn, soy, and peanuts. What I am really excited for, is to give my body a jump start back to clean eating. I've been doing a little bit of mental meal prep to switch gears in my every day eating. 

I eat a lot of dairy and a lot of peanuts (butter). These two eliminations will be the hardest, but this has challenged me to become creative and find some healthier alternatives. 

Breakfast

Lately (for the past year, who am I kidding) my breakfast has consisted of 1/3C rolled oats + 1 banana + 1-2T peanut butter (store bought, probably Jiff) + raisins. I want to try and start mixing up my breakfast and not always resorting to oats.

For NYNR I am stocking up on the following breakfast ingredients...

3. Almond Butter in place of Peanut Butter

4. Frozen Fruit for smoothie making 

5. Unsweetened Silk Almond Milk (in place of cow's milk)

Snacks

Confession: I am a snacker. My body thinks she is hungry at about 10AM and 2PM, every 2 hours. My snacks are usually some sort of dairy. I love Chobani Greek Yogurt, Lifeway Keifer, or string cheese. Another one of my favorites is a banana/apple and peanut butter. Hmph- these are all foods that have the common allergens being eliminated in NYNR. Back to the creativity board.

For NYNR I am stocking up on or making the following snack ingredients...

1. Homemade Granola and Silk Almond Milk

Lunch

I am a salad girl for lunch. I like to have a heftier mid-morning snack and a lighter lunch. Just because I like to eat salads, doesn't mean that I skimp out on good stuff. Here's a typical Fit Foodie Salad...

The only thing I really need to do differently is X the cheese (Sianara cottage, goat, and bleu) and the processed lunch meat. For my Fit Foodie Salads, I am going to stock up on...

1. Avocado

2. Chicken Breast

3. Fresh Fruit and Vegetables

4. Homemade Dressing (Need a recipe without balsamic!)

Dinner

Dinners might be a little difficult. I am trying to convince Blake to participate with me in NYNR, so we will see if he plays a long! I usually make dinner for Blake and I that consists of a meat, a veggie, and a carb. I'm not worried about the veggies and the carbs because I already eat gluten free, so quinoa and brown rice are staples. I want to be particular about the meat that I eat and how I prepare it.

For NYNR Dinners, I want to stock up on...

1. Lean Chicken Breast

2. Salmon 

3. Root Vegetables (minus white potatoes)

4. Quinoa (because I want to eat less animal meat and quinoa is higher in protein).

That seems like a lot, but it is definitely doable. Don't forget to check out my NYNR Recipe Round-Up I posted a few weeks ago :)

Happy Hump Day!
