This is a Phase 1 Ideal Protein Chicken Recipe formulated to follow the Ideal Protein Diet:
Ideal4umeals formulated the Ideal Protein Chicken recipe to contain 1.75 cups select vegetables, .25 cup occasional vegetable with 1 tsp olive oil. We’ve made sure this meal meets all the guidelines of the Ideal Protein diet for phase 1. Our chef’s start with 2 cups of raw vegetables. We’ve included 1.75 cups come from the select category, cucumber, cauliflower, and bell pepper. And we’ve included just .25 cup of occasional vegetables, eggplant, to give the hummus a taste and texture similar to real hummus. However, our hummus has just 1/8 the carbs of traditional hummus. So, you’ll get to enjoy a full half cup compared to an only 2 tablespoons of traditional hummus.
This weight loss meal has only 8 net carbs but it’s full of flavor and a chef favorite to eat! This Ideal Protein Chicken Recipe is sure to satisfy you, while facilitating weight loss. And if you love this meal, stay tuned once you’re in phase 3. The Phase 3 Chicken version has the same great flavors with the healthy complex carbohydrates of brown rice added in.
How did we formulate our version of the Chicken Shawarma meal to follow IP guidelines?
We’ve partnered with Ideal Protein clinics through out St. Tammany Parish and Baton Rouge to master the art of preparing full flavored satisfying meals. And we’ve accomplished this while following the exact specifications of the Ideal Protein diet. For example, a traditional Chicken Shawarma contains traditional hummus made with chick pea pasta. Although chick pea pasta is a healthy carbohydrate it is high in carbs if consuming more than a typical 2 tablespoon serving.
At ideal4umeals, we take traditional recipes and find healthy substitutes so that you don’t have to miss out on the things you love. For example, in Phase 1 hummus is not allowed at all. But with our cauliflower eggplant hummus you can enjoy the same taste and texture of hummus with out the calories and carbs. With our hummus, you can consume 8 tablespoons or a half cup compared to only 2 tablespoons of traditional hummus.
