Sometimes, you don’t want to or cannot plan ahead what dish you specifically want to eat.
For these cases, selecting a freestyle meal in your nutrition plan is a great way to know how much to eat.
To create a freestyle meal, you need the following:
- A source of carbohydrates, for example pasta, rice or quinoa.
- A source of protein, for example salmon, tofu, or chicken. Double the amount if you use cottage cheese as a protein source.
- A source of healthy fats (because you probably need some oil to fry your protein source).
- A source of greens (vegetables).
Your nutrition plan tells you how big these different sources should be, but then you are totally free to do whatever you want.
