Hey there! Nate and I are in our last week of the Advocare Challenge! We are officially done on Wednesday. You can read about us starting the 24 day challenge and about our 10 Day Cleanse Results. This has been a great reset for us and I’m excited to see what our final weight loss numbers are, but I’m even more proud of how both of us have changed our eating habits for the better. I mean, Nate ate spinach on a sandwich–who is this guy?
One of the hardest parts going into the challenge is eating the right stuff. I was worried that we would struggle to find meal options that we both liked. I scoured the internet for recipes and thought I would share the meals we’ve eaten while on the Advocare 24 day challenge.
Our Advocare 24 Day Challenge Meal Plan
Day 1: Turkey Meatloaf
Day 2: Clean pulled pork (from 100 Days of Real Food Cookbook)
Day 3: Taco Soup (similar–there is no real recipe, just a dump and stir approach)
Day 4: Italian Turkey Burgers
Day 5: Chicken fajitas with 100% whole wheat low carb tortillas
Day 6: Cheat meal of pizza hut (Laying floor in our new house)
Day 7: Qdoba rice bowl with chicken
Day 8: Chili
Day 9: Leftovers
Day 10: Burgers with lean ground beef & 100% whole wheat buns
Day 11: Honey Mustard Pork Chops
Day 12: Ate at camp: I think we had roast beef.
Day 13: Ate at camp: I think we had chicken breast.
Day 14: Soup & Sandwiches at Panera bread (whole wheat bread, apples for side, tomato soup)–Extreme Packing Day
Day 15: Qdoba chicken rice bowls–Moving Day
Day 16: Chili and whole wheat cornbread–First meal in our new house!
Day 17: Marinated chicken breast (made in crockpot)
Day 18: Clean pulled pork (from 100 Days of Real Food Cookbook)
Day 19: Ate at camp: Chicken breast/meatloaf
Day 20: Ate at camp:
Day 21: Tacos with lean ground turkey
Day 22: Lean beef burgers
Day 23: Leftover Chili
Day 24: Chicken in the crockpot
Whew! That is a lot of good eats! As you can see we weren’t perfect during the challenge, but we did our best to consistently follow the guidelines. Yup, we ate pizza one meal, but were right back with it and I’m sure not everything at Panera was on the up and up, but we also painted a house, helped lay a hardwood floor, and moved, all while both still working and keeping an 8 month old alive. I’d say we did pretty darn good.
Breakfast & Lunch
For breakfast Nate always drank a meal replacement shake and I either had a shake or oatmeal with a half scoop of protein powder and fruit. I feel like the days I eat oatmeal I’m less hungry, so I have a lot of shakes left for busy mornings. For lunch, we ate tacos/salads, beef-vegetable soup and mostly leftovers. For our sides we ate a lot of potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, green beans, peas and salad, green pepper/fajita veggies.
So that is what we ate on the Advocare 24 Day Challenge!
