FMD Phase 1 (Fast Metabolism Diet)

Post recipes that aren't in the book here (and trying not to duplicate Haylie's page much)! 1. Please note any modifications we have to make for the recipe to fit the Phase. :) 2. Thanks for pinning!

Turkey Meatloaf Muffins - great for Phase 1 or Phase 3 (you can use a whole egg on Phase 3, instead of the whites)

Phase 1, Phase 2: This Green Cucumber Smoothie sounds delicious for Phase 1 (with the apple) or Phase 2 (without apple)

White Bean and Spinach Tacos look fantastic for Phase 1 (saute in broth or water, instead of grapeseed or olive oil) or Phase 3. Serves 3, each with a sprouted-grain tortilla (skip the optional cheese).

Roasting your own peppers takes this Quinoa and Roasted Pepper Chili to the next level. Serves three for Phase 1 (saute in broth instead of oil, and add a grain on the side) or Phase 3.

Poached Fish with Napa Cabbage - fast and easy for Phase 1 (without the sesame seeds) and Phase 3.
