And Get Their Support without Even Asking…
Are you as discreet as this mom?
With the kids going back to school, I thought this would be a perfect time to talk about how to make your HCG diet meals more family friendly. I get it, when the kids are home I’m eating what they’re eating. Of course we all do out best to keep the fridge and cupboards full of healthy fruits, veggies and whole grains, but summer is a long time. Not as long as it used to be, but it’s not ideal for “routine.” Now that the kids are back in school, let’s re-focus on ourselves. Rather than adjusting your eating to accommodate the kids, why not accommodate the kids’ to your HCG 2.0 Protocol?
Below are 5 ways to transform your HCG 2.0 recipes and meal plans to incorporate active and hungry children.
Serve your HCG 2.0 protein and veggies over a plate of pasta – Active kids need fuel. We have excess fuel in the form of fat that we’re struggling to lose, so something’s got to give. By serving your HCG 2.0 protein and veggies, such as grilled chicken and sauteed vegetables, over a plate of pasta serves 2 purposes: 1.) When you’re at the dinner table eating something different from those sitting around you, it can be alienating. Dieting is difficult enough, simplify it by eating what everyone else is eating, minus the starch. 2.)

Serve It On a Stick – Vegetables aren’t the most exciting thing to appear on a child’s dinner plate. So make your HCG 2.0 diet vegetables fun by serving them as kabobs. Let your kids participate and make their own. Provide them with chicken and/or beef and an array of colorful vegetables and let them create their own HCG 2.0 protocol dinner. There’s a reason fair’s and carnivals serve nearly everything on a stick… it’s fun!! Add a starch such as rice or potatoes as a filler – not for you, for them. hcg diet recipes
Prepare HCG 2.0 Friendly Snack Foods that the Kids Will Like Too – Again, raw veggies aren’t that exciting to a kid, but if you add some fun and tasty things to dip or spread, they can be. For example, add peanut butter or cream cheese to celery. The additional calories won’t hurt an active child and you’re helping them acquire a taste for vegetables. In the future, you can slowly reduce the amount of dips or spreads until they’re eating and enjoying plain, raw veggies. Ranch dip also works for veggies. Pickles also make a great low-calorie snack that can be enjoyed by kids and parents on the HCG diet.
Corn on the Cobb – What kid doesn’t enjoy corn on the cob? It’s a great way to add a healthy starch to accompany your HCG 2.0 protein and vegetable options. This is another way you can stick to your HCG diet plan and still be part of the family meal. Don’t alienate yourself by making the children a frozen pizza while you’re eating tuna out of a can. Eat together, the same meal. Not only is it way too tempting to sneak a slice of pizza, but your children will be eating the same healthy foods you are. If you’re on the HCG 2.0 protocol, your children should be eating the EXACT same things you are, with the addition of a starch. Taste is an acquired sense – the sooner you start your children off with a healthy diet, the sooner they’ll develop a taste for healthy foods. hcg diet recipes
Take the Kids to the Grocery Store (and shop the perimeters) – Give the kids options. Take them to the grocery store with you. Get out your HCG 2.0 Mobile App and ask them if they’d prefer broccoli or green peppers? Cod or Tilapia? Give them the choice of starch to prepare for the meal? Get them on your side.
Best of Luck!
