Q. I am a person who works on schedule but lacking in my diet. Can you recommend a daily menu for me. I am a person who works on schedule but lacking in my diet. Can you recommend a daily menu for me, considering I don't eat any veggies or fruits? I know that's not good for me, but I can’t stand fruits and veggies at all! What should I eat?
A. Person like you who seeks a diet on schedule is very rare to find these days. Now I don’t want to waste your time so let me come to the point. I would recommend a general "clean" diet to adhere to.I would focus on lean protein sources (chicken breast, turkey breast, egg whites) and nonwhite starchy carbs such as brown rice, whole wheat pasta and boiled red potatoes. If you can eat these starchy carbs and keep your body fat down, then enjoy them! A quick daily menu could consist of: 8am: 1 small salad with balsamic vinaigrette dressing, 1 chicken breast (8 ounce), 1 cup of steamed brown rice. 11am: turkey sandwich with whole wheat bread (8 ounces of lean turkey breast, lettuce, tomato, mustard) (NO cheese or mayo). 2pm: 8 ounces of top round steak, 2 boiled red potatoes, 1 cup of non-fat cottage cheese. 5pm: egg white omelet (8 egg whites), 2 pieces of whole wheat toast (NO butter). 8pm: 8 ounces of fish, 2 cups of whole wheat pasta and 1 small salad with balsamic vinaigrette More discussions about menu
