Challenge your willpower and gradually change your lifestyle by going for just one week without eating meat. This challenge tests both body and mind by altering your daily dieting routine.
Whether you are trying to lose weight, increase strength or build body mass, the 1 Week No Meat Challenge is a great way to test your body.
Instead of consuming meat that is high in saturated fats and cholesterol, substitute lean proteins such as legumes and soy protein accompanied by nutritious fruits and vegetables.
Removing meat from your diet does not mean removing protein. In fact, when on a vegetarian diet, it is important to incorporate protein from sources such as white kidney beans, soy or grains. Other sources of good protein include whole wheat products and old fashioned oatmeal.
Pumpkin seeds, walnuts and raw almonds are excellent sources of protein and can conveniently be carried for on-the-go snacks.
Dairy products are also excellent sources of protein. For example, 2% cottage cheese contains on average over 10 grams of protein and approximately 115 calories per 1/2 cup serving. While on the 1 Week No Meat Challenge, dairy provides richness to your meals, resulting in a lasting feeling of fullness and satisfaction.
Construct your meals during your 1 Week No Meat Challenge to consist of these lean protein sources plus vitamin rich vegetables and fruit. For best results, plan your meals and snacks in advance by creating a schedule and gathering recipes for meals beforehand.
Incorporate the use of flavorful spices such as curry powder, chilis and others to add robustness to your meals. Don't forget to incorporate the use of healthy fats such as olive oil and flax seed oil for optimal nutrition while on your challenge.
