Stock your kitchen with clean organic ingredients depending on what you choose for your meals for the entire week. A good start, let’s try to have a meatless day. You will get use to it !
For Breakfast: Start your day making an omelet, scrambled or hard-boiled eggs mixed with low-carb vegetables like spinach, tomatoes, sweet peppers, kale and avocados by using extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil which contains a good fat. Also old fashioned roll oats with diced fresh apples, a cup of non-fat plain yogurt with homemade granola and green kale juice for a quick clean start,(see my recipes on my site) .
For Lunch: Avoid pre-made salads. Eating healthy salads using(arugula, romaine, kale, collard greens,spinach) with homemade dressings(see my recipes) mixed with high-protein fish like salmon, tuna, cod or chicken .

Alternate between fish and chicken next to brown rice, quinoa, cracked whole wheat or any other starch of your choice(see recipes on my site).
