WB Meal Plan - Flat Belly Diet

I have received some emails lately from readers asking how they can lose those last 10 pounds. What is it with those stubborn pounds that just won't go away? I have been researching and reading a ton about weight, metabolism and the best ways our bodies work with the right foods to lose weight.

But then at the same time, I have been questioning some things too... maybe we are perfect just the way we are. If we are eating a clean diet and getting good nutrition from plant foods and staying away from junk... well, maybe we should just embrace our bodies how they are? But we'll get to that post soon!

So this week, I am loosely following the Flat Belly Diet ~ some recipes are from me. I know this book sounds funny, but I feel it does have some great facts about health and healthy fats that promote weight loss. Plus, if I just so "happen" to get a flat belly in the process then I definitely won't complain!

OH and the diet recommends you drink a whole 2 liters of "Sassy Water" a day. The recipe is at the bottom if you're interested in that too!

Grilled tilapia. I will just use a little EVOO, salt & pepper, seafood seasoning and lemon juice and grilled on some foil for 10-15 minutes
Steamed green beans
Roasted red potatoes

Grilled chicken (marinated overnight in balsamic vinaigrette dressing)
Brown rice (with garlic, salt & pepper)
Strawberry spinach salad.

Grilled vegetables (peppers, onions, squash/zucchini and mushrooms) over brown rice.
Pineapple smoothie.

Feta & Parsley turkey burgers
Grilled asparagus
Fresh pineapple chunks

Chicken, feta & spinach pizza on whole wheat dough. I am experimenting with this and will probably share this if it is family approved :)
Green salad with carrots, cherry tomatoes and cucumbers.

Sassy Water
2 liters of filtered water
1 teaspoon of freshly grated ginger root
1 medium cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
1 medium lemon, thinly sliced
12 mint leaves.

Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher and chill overnight.

Drinking a whole 2 liters a day is about what we should be drinking to get our organs cleansed and help with metabolism. Dehydration is very common and can trigger many symptoms like headache, fatigue, dry skin, constipation and dizziness. The ginger helps to calm and soothe your GI tract.


  1. Lift your left foot in front of you, touch it with your ideal hand, and lower it towards the floor.

  2. Awesome Belly diet plan. Sassy water looks cool...
