Weight Loss Meal Plan #1

Here is a fun meal plan for the weekend! I love switching it up and making more interesting dishes when I have time on a lazy Sunday. The pancakes can be made into waffles if you have a waffle maker which I love doing and adding tons of fresh berries on top. The “Better than Chipotle” bowl is actually one of my most popular recipes and makes enough for a few bowls, you can also use it in tacos or breakfast burritos for a fun twist. I like to keep my food really basic during the week but its always fun to have different recipes when you have some time and want to just enjoy cooking for the day.

  1. First heat turn on a non-stick skillet to medium heat so it can warm up while we make the pancakes.
  2. Add all of your ingredients into your blender and blend on high for 30 seconds or until very smooth (no chunks) Tip - add in your water and bananas first to help it blend better.
  3. Pour about 1/4 cup of the batter on your hot skillet to make one pancake. Let it sit for 3-4 minutes on the first side. The easiest way to flip it is take your spatula and go under each side of the pancake all the way around until you can lift it off easily and then flip. (Make sure to leave enough room between pancakes so that you have room to do this)
  4. Let the pancakes cook on the other side for 3-4 more minutes, depending on how brown you want them. Top with maple syrup and berries or coconut whip cream. Enjoy!
  5. MORE COOKING TIPS! - if you are trying to flip the pancakes and you are getting stuck batter on your spatula they are not ready to flip. Always wipe off your spatula and make sure it is clean or else any batter on there will stick to the pancake and cause it to tear. Follow the ingredients, do not add more water, the thinner they are the less they will rise and the harder they will be to flip. If you do not have a great non stick pan use a tiny bit of coconut or avocado cooking spray or oil.

  1. In your food processor add in all of your ingredients except the chocolate chips and process until it becomes a sticky crumbly mixture (you should be able to squeeze it in your hand and have it stick together)
  2. Line a 8x4 loaf pan (any square/rectangular pan actually works here) with parchment paper and press your mixture into the bottom. Place in freezer for 15 minutes.
  3. Fill a large saucepan halfway with water and find any glass bowl that comfortably fits over the top. Once the water is boiling place the bowl on top add in your chocolate and reduce the heat to a simmer. Stir frequently until all the chocolate chips have melted.
  4. Take your base out of the freezer and pull down the sides of the parchment paper. Pour the melted chocolate over top and spread evenly. You can top this with extra coconut, chopped nuts, hemp seeds or whatever you like. Place in fridge for 30-40 minutes to set, then cut into squares and serve.
  5. Recipe Notes If you have really dry dates, make sure to soak them in water for a few hours before and drain the water before adding to the food processor. You can use any nut butter instead of coconut butter (also called coconut manna) id recommend peanut, almond, sunflower or cashew for the best results.
