6 Week Plan for Recovery, no, Rebooting!!

Surgery was this past Thursday, and I have 6 weeks to make the most of it. Finally went grocery shopping today-not the best idea post knee surgery, but it was necessary! List of foods to focus on for the rebooting:

Fish

Chicken

Greens

Broccoli

Turmeric tea

Oat milk

Cinnamon harvest Cereal from Kashi

Bell peppers

Almond butter

Plain Oats

Protein powder-I like 1st Phorm

Dr. Axe Collagen

Triple Berry blend-blackberries, blueberries, raspberries

Couscous

Chia seeds

Quinoa

Eggs

Protein pancake mix

Ezekiel Bread


So this will be my staple list for the reboot. I will add items as needed.


The plan is to eat 20-25 grams of protein 4 times a day with 2 cups of greens or 2 cups of a combination of beans, broccoli, peppers, black eyed peas, couscous, or quinoa.

I will continue making rice-n-gravy because I have a family who loves it. I will still take in sweets, just only very small portions and only once a day-early in the day-like before 4pm. This is to ensure that my body will burn it off. Now, I do have a plan to combat sweet cravings with my no bake protein balls. Look for the recipe in upcoming posts.


Reasons for the above:

  1. Protein will aid in my recovery and help me maintain muscle.

  2. Greens will aid in my recovery because of the micronutrients.

  3. Berries are full of antioxidants that help in the healing process.

  4. Turmeric will aid in relieving inflammation.

  5. Whole grains will add to increased fiber intake

  6. Sugar, periodically, will keep me from going off the deep end-haha

I will add recipes and break down the nutritional benefits for each throughout the 6 weeks.
