Just call me renegade. It doesn’t bother me.
One of my clients once said to me: RESULTS DON’T LIE
That is where I am. Sure, I experiment, and then I have clients and Boot Camp members that are willing to experiment, and in the long run I find things that work pretty much across the board. It’s all in the results.
This is one of those things. One of my first clients gave it it’s name, so don’t blame me for this one. It is something I came up with on one of my later P2’s to help me with busy days. I make it once and it lasts me all day. It has turned out to be a meal that is easily packed and taken with you in a small cooler. It is more than filling and it keeps well cold. Lunch and dinner, all in one.
You might look at the ingredients and say “you are mixing proteins and veggies” and you would be right. However, this is way better trying to find things on the run. It’s well within the legal limits of calories for the day (I have my clients on 500-600 calories a day for the most part) and it’s a complete meal.
Easy peasy for those days that you need easy peasy.
And it’s good. No joke, it’s really good!

Serving Idea: Great for cooler and on the go meals. Especially if you are gone all day. It makes a ton so will keep you full all day on P2.
Note: Officially, this is three proteins: tuna, eggs and cottage cheese. I treat the cottage cheese as the additional milk or half and half that I allow my clients. It also has 4 veggies: tomatoes, onions, lettuce and cucumbers. I treat the tomatoes as the fruit for the day, and the lettuce is a free food where I come from. ::giggle::
