The 24-hour Flat Belly meal plan!

As much as you do your Russian twists and crunches at the gym to get toned, it’s also all about your diet. If you end up after your 30 day beach body workout and don’t feel all that great – I’d start looking at what you’re putting into your belly. I, for one, oscillate between wanting to stuff my face with burritos after the gym, no probably Chimichangas and fries, and eating a bowl of veggies. What I found was having a gym buddy is great because you keep each other motivated and on track!

Here is a few foodie tips to get your flat belly bod just in time for the summer. Fit is the new skinny this season –  that’s for sure.  And according to style.com – if you want to flaunt it – wellness is the new luxury. Scroll below for some yummy looking pics to inspire you in the kitchen and throughout the day. xxx

Put all these ingredients in the juicer for a mega shot of immune booster to accompany your morning routine or place slices of apple, cucumber, and lemon in your water bottle to keep you hydrated and detoxifying through the day

Breakfast

1 packet of instant oatmeal with a cup of berries & 2 tablespoons of peanut better

OR

2 hard boiled eggs & 1 cup of berries

Oats are filling and packed filled with fibre and you get the natural sugar from the fresh berries alongside the healthy fat from peanut butter. If you’re feeling hardcore you can always go the boiled eggs option! Lean & mean for sure.

Morning Snack 

1/3 of raw nuts or celery sticks with 2 tsp of peanut butter OR a cup of berries.

These two have fibre, protein, and healthy fat, and will keep you full.

Lunch

2 cups of salad greens (suggestions: 1/2 diced cucumber, 10 cherry tomatoes, 1/4 cup of shredded carrots, 1/2 an avocado, 1 hard-boiled egg, 1 tbsp of sunflower seeds and squeeze of lemon and vinegar.

Try avoid oily dressing, cheeses, things like that. You can also add other nuts and other seeds as well. This is going to leave you feeling super healthy, light and clean. The egg and nuts will be your protein.

Afternoon Snack

A cup of Greek/natural yoghurt with a dash of cinnamon OR slice cucumber with 1 tbsp of rice vinegar and fresh dill.

The natural smell of cinnamon is a stress reliever – great pick me up in the afternoon at the office. Plus it’s also the sweetener substitute and yoghurt will keep you full until dinner. If you’re really craving something sweet – natural Manouka honey can’t go wrong.

Dinner

Grilled salmon, sauteed spinach in olive oil and garlic and roasted fennel and root vetetables

Salmon has omega-3 fatty acids, which are the fats that will help you burn fat. Fennel is a cleansing veggie that will help flush you out. (in a good way).
