14-Day Atkins Meal Plan: Day 12
The Atkins diet is one of the most popular and debated low-carb diets, especially effective if your aim is to lose weight. The theory behind it is that you can eat as much protein and fats as you like, as long as you stay away from high-carb foods. That being said, our meal plan is for Atkins 40, which, as the name suggests, limits the carb intake to 40 grams a day.
Blended green smoothie with 120 mL unsweetened almond milk, 80 mL water, 30g vanilla flavored whey protein, 30g spinach, 3 frozen strawberries, 2 Tbsp almond butter and 1 Tbsp chia seeds – 405 kcal
150g plain low-fat Greek yogurt with 5 raspberries, 15g chopped walnuts and 1 tsp zero-calorie sweetener (such as stevia or erythritol) – 226 kcal
120g pimento cheese wrapped in 3 large romaine lettuce leaves – 569 kcal
1 whole avocado, sliced, seasoned to taste – 227 kcal
Skinny eggplant rollatini (4 rollatini) – 420 kcal

Also need to have:
Say cheese! You’ll get plenty of it today, along with the much-needed calcium and trace minerals. But first, a delicious and nutritious green smoothie for breakfast with bioavailable protein from whey and omega-3 fat from chia seeds. Lunch is a low-carb twist on an old-school comfort food — pimento cheese sandwich — then dinner is an Atkins take on Italian stuffed shells, instead using slices of high-fiber eggplant.
