FP: The Fuel Pull Meal
The FP Meal is comprised of lean protein + nonstarchy veggies.
Basically, if you strip away the fats that make an S meal and the carbs that make an E meal, you are left with the fuels your body burns (or stores) pulled away. Hence, fuel pull. Too many fuel pulls will make you think you’re on a diet — and you’re not, it’s a lifestyle change — so they aren’t recommended for constant use. But a fuel pull snack or meal can be terrific, especially at bedtime or if you’re hangry and it’s not quite mealtime.
To create a fuel pull meal or snack, stick to the lean protein section on the E page and the veggies-in-abundance section on either page.
A few FP meals/snacks I enjoy, just to give you an idea what that looks like on a plate:
• Low-fat yogurt and berries
• Lean protein + non-starchy veggies + konjac noodles in a stir-fry
• Tossed green salad with a grilled chicken breast and low-fat, low-carb dressing
• Sourdough wrap with lean deli meat, a wedge or two of Light Laughing Cow Cheese, spinach or pea shoots, and more raw veggies
• Soup made with lean ground turkey and veggies
• Berry Smoothie
• 2 Light Rye Wasa crackers with Light Laughing Cow cheese and up to 1 tsp (total) of sugar-free jam
