I’ve been stalking Emily Skye on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for a while now and finally hit the “purchase” button this past week. She had a 50% off special and it was only $35 for an entire month of food lists (weekly) as well as a menu and a workout plan. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to at least try it for a month.
I don’t know about you but I need to be constantly on top of my fitness goals or I let go and it becomes a nightmare trying to undo the damage of unhealthy eating. What I love about this plan is that everything is extremely healthy- I am reminded of how I was eating when I first became a vegetarian; clean, whole eating.
There is a wide variety of breakfast options including pancakes, quinoa cereal, chia pudding- which can be made the night before to save time. Lunches are tempeh stir fries, chickpea cakes; snacks are protein shakes (I use my favorite Garden of Life protein shakes in Chocolate or Marley Coffee) and protein balls or FIT protein muffins. She uses tons of veggies, nuts, seeds, raw foods. It’s clean eating- no milks except for the occasional unsweetened yogurt with berries and stevia.
The best part of the plan is that you will never be hungry, there is so much protein and whole foods that it filled me up. I was actually wondering how I could fit it all in. Her plan has it all set up so you literally do not have to figure it out on your own. The recipes are tasty and simple so you won’t be overwhelmed with thousands of ingredients.
And lest you think that you’re spending a whole lot on just yourself, most of the recipes feed more than 1 person so you can either put it in the freezer and eat later, or feed the rest of your family!
I’m not 100% yet, I’m going into this gradually or I won’t stick to it. My snack today was the pumpkin protein balls which literally have no sugar in them except a little bit of dates. However, I only had four dates left so I subbed with bananas and it didn’t work out so well. The dates are what sticks it together, the bananas just made it mushier. Regardless, three of them make a great snack and I’m stuffed till lunch time. Note to self- don’t sub!
Her 28 day Phase I plan also comes with a workout routine that I’ll be starting tonight. You do need at least dumbbells at home if you’re not going to the gym, so be prepared if you decide to check her out. Even if you don’t check her out today, this Aussie is an incredible role model and worth following on social media. She’s all about positive energy and building others up. .
