Many have asked for some guides to help them figure out how and what to eat with their Lean & Green meals. Here are a few handy ones.
Typically, a Lean and Green has any where from 5-7 oz of lean protein, depending on the type. Check out these guides to find a Lean, or Leans to mix and match in your meal.
Many Lean & Green recipes call for a 1/2 cup of this, or a cup of that. Its hard to accurately measure vegetables that way, as there tends to be a lot of empty space surrounding the veg. Get yourself a trusty food scale, and weigh your veg. And weigh it as you will eat it. For example, if you are going to cook your broccoli, weigh it raw at the cooked weight. You can totally mix and match your Green, just be sure to get all 3 servings in! I’ve asked Nutrition Support about the strange scenario where we the cooked Green weighs more than the raw. To my knowledge, itis because veggies soak up liquids while cooking. And it probably has something to do with the the molecular compounds of the vegetable changing while cooking.
