Daily Healthy Meal Plan
Below are some everyday meal plans so that you will be able to eat a variety of healthy meals each day.
The Day One Plan (Day-1)
Today’s meal plan is straightforward yet healthy. It comprises about 2,249 calories, with 50% of those calories coming from carbs, 20% fat, and 25 % from protein. It also includes almost 33 g of dietary fiber.
Breakfast is a must, so don’t skip it. The ideal time of your breakfast should 7:30 a.m. Don’t late your first meal above 10:30.
Breakfast meal includes;
- One grapefruit

- One cup low-fat dairy milk

1. Breakfast Routine
My day- one healthy food plan is simple, and you don’t have to do anything special to follow it. As I mentioned earlier, for me, breakfast is something that I cannot skip. I get up in the morning at almost 6:45 a.m and I maintain almost half an hour’s duration.
At 7:30 a.m. I eat my breakfast which mainly includes eggs (poached egg), whole-grain bread, and one cup of fat-free fat. In addition, I drink almost 3 glasses of water between my breakfast and the next snack.
At 10:30 a.m. I drink my favorite herbal tea. As I’m not too fond of coffee, so I prefer tea.
2. Lunch Routine
I eat my lunch at 2:00 p.m. My lunch is mostly included roasted fatty fish like salmon, tuna, and trout or poultry like chicken or turkey. I never forget to use green salads with my lunch because it is good to have a combination of healthy protein, vitamins, and minerals.
I also drink one glass of water with my lunch. My office timing is from 9:00 to 5:00 p.m. So it is good for me to eat at this time.
3. Dinner Routine
I have dinner that includes steamed leafy greens, lean meat in a roasted form, and one glass of water. I will never be late at my dinner because it is not suitable for my health, so you should do the same!
