When a lot of people who join Code Red lay eyes on the foods list, they experience panic, usually because the food they're used to eating is on the “foods to avoid” side of the list.
Plus many don't know what to do with the approved foods, either because they're not cooks (hey, no judgment – I'm not either!) or they're just so unfamiliar with them because they rarely eat them.
Despite what “diets” with complicated meal plans have led you to believe, delicious, healthy meals are actually very simple.
And you'd be surprised how versatile the foods on the foods list can actually be. My Rebels come up with some AMAZING stuff.
But to get you started, here are some simple Code Red-approved meal ideas:
Bacon and fried eggs with Himalayan pink salt and guacamole.
Steak and asparagus spears sautéed in butter and seasoned with Himalayan pink salt.
Bacon, lettuce, grape tomatoes, and cream cheese (it's like a BLT!).
Pepperoni slices with cream cheese and an olive on each slice.
Spread cream cheese on deli ham, turkey, or roast beef and roll a pickle up in it.
Bread chicken in ground pork rinds and air fry or bake it. For your veggie, add broccoli with butter and Himalayan pink salt.
Put riced cauliflower in a saucepan. Add butter, heavy whipping cream, and cream cheese, along with grape tomatoes and baby spinach leaves. Include chunks of meat if you want. Season with Himalayan pink salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Cook it until it's nice and warm, stirring occasionally so the cream cheese mixes in as it melts.
Use riced cauliflower to make a stir fry with meat and veggies.
Use mashed cauliflower to make “mashed potatoes” with steak and green beans. Remember the butter and Himalayan pink salt!
Sauté zucchini noodles in butter or avocado oil. Make sure you add Himalayan pink salt, a little pepper, and other spices you enjoy! Eat them as is, or mix in veggies. You can even add pork, beef, or chicken.
Put nuts and blueberries in a bowl. Add unsweetened almond milk and heavy whipping cream, along with a little Stevia or Monk Fruit, to make “cereal.” If you love coconut, try adding unsweetened shredded coconut.
These are just a HANDFUL of the delicious, filling, Code Red-approved meals you can enjoy.
So don't panic when you see that foods list. When in doubt, keep it simple: Healthy fats plus veggies plus a little protein. You can do this!
