Ideal Protein Diet Week 3 and 13 pounds gone!
Well, I have been doing the Ideal Protein diet and just finished week 3 and the result is 13 pounds lost! This is just beyond my expectations so far and has been relatively easy. I am enjoying the food (well, mostly!) and because I like to cook and experiment that has made it easier to follow. There’s a lot to work with here!
I love that there are so many foods to choose from. I was on a mushroom soup kick for a few days. The Ideal Protein mushroom soup packet tastes amazing if you add a cup of chopped mushrooms and asparagus to it. I also add 2 ounces of chicken, it’s one of my favorite lunches!
Here are some pictures of new foods/recipes that I’ve tried this past week.
This week I discovered the joys of Jicama! This is my new favorite vegetable.
Pictured are fries that I made by tossing the jicama in 1 teaspoon olive oil, salt and pepper and then baking on parchment paper in the oven until they brown on the edges. They were really good, but don’t taste like fries.
I like jicama even better raw, they are crunchy and sweet. Jicama counts as a select vegetable.
If you are doing the Ideal Protein diet and crave something sweet and crunchy like an apple, this is pretty darn close!
Some Other Things I Tried on Ideal Protein Diet Week 3
Check out my first two Ideal Protein compliant recipes!
Egg Roll in a Bowl Recipe (which also make amazing lettuce wraps I found out yesterday!)
I’ll try to post my results here every couple of weeks with hopefully a new recipe too!
