Recovery Strategy: The Veggie Night

Want to jump-start your diet week? Had a long weekend or vacation get away from you? Or perhaps you had an over-indulgence at a barbecue or picnic. Try a Veggie Night. A Veggie Night will re-set your eating clock and get you back to clean and mean. A Veggie Night is just what it sounds like: a night where your dinner is comprised of simply vegetables. Some of my clients routinely use Veggie Nights one night a week as a matter of routine. Others reserve their Veggie Nights as a re-set tool or when you get home very late and just want something simple and fast. A Veggie Night dinner might be a baked white or sweet potato and two measured cups of steamed vegetables of your choice. This meal can be on your plate in under ten minutes if you use your trusty microwave and you'll feel back on track in no time!
