Shift Shop Week 2 Vegan Menu


Let's get better, shall we?! ;)
That is the motto in the Shift Shop Test group I'm in, and I thought I'd share a super detailed "behind the scenes" journey with ya'll over the next 7 days! 1 week of FOCUSED DEDICATION!! YASSS!!! Perfect timing since the nutrition plan is STRICTER this week and the workouts are LONGER!
This Transformation Challenge is a personal journey, but I'll be posting it PUBLICLY of course!! ;)
It will include:
*Daily 35 minute Shift Shop workouts
*Strict vegan nutrition
*No alcohol
*My favorite personal growth to better my mindset
*Delish, clean recipes
*Meal Prep tips
*Accountability
*Increasing my energy
*Getting rid of cravings
*Seeing what I'm capable of! ;)
Feel free to follow along on my Snapchat: Dream4tmrw since I'll be documenting the most there, as well as my IG @LaurenMcHugh_14

I'M SO EXCITED!! To kick off this 7 Day Transformation Challenge...let's begin with some workout motivation! ;) 

"Most often, it is not the workout that gets us out of bed in the morning. It is the friendships and unspoken bonds of those counting on us to show up."

I could NOT agree more with this! Honestly, I don't WANT to workout that often. As Mel Robbins would say, "Motivation is bullsh*t." We are not motivated to do what we don't want to do...we just get it done.🔥

What always fuels me is the support and accountability of the women I work with daily.

I look at our group every morning, see who has checked in already (different time zones across the U.S. and Canada mean someone has always worked out before me!), and see the hard work they have already put in before I'm out of bed.

THAT gets me moving because they have already showed up to their health.

*Workout tip of the day: GET.ACCOUNTABILITY. Before I did all my workouts from home with a support community, my bestie and I would workout together and make sure our bootys were up and moving! However, that didn't help so much with nutrition...so always have a plan and a WHY powerful enough to push through every temptation!*


Speaking of nutrition...here is my veganized menu for the week!! I'm doing intermittent fasting, so I start eating at noon and stop by 8pm! Click here to see week 1!

Meal 1: 1 protein (red container), 2 tsp, 1 fruit (purple), 1 veggie (green) 

I have my superfood smoothie with 2 tsp all natural almond butter, 1/2 frozen banana, 1 cup raw frozen spinach, add ice and blend it up!

Meal 2: 2 green, 1 red

I have a serving of cooked squash or zucchini noodles, 1 container marinara sauce, and portioned out beyond beef crumbles. This is SUPER delicious and filling!

Meal 3: 2 green, 1 orange, 1 red 

I just eyeball it when it comes to measuring out my romaine lettuce--I honestly try to fit in as many veggies as I can every day. My meal plan calls for 3...I usually up it to 5! #veganlife
Lettuce, baby carrots, 1 orange container of Just Caesar dressing (AMAZING), and portioned out Beyond Beef "Chicken." This is legit my favorite meal of the day and I never thought I'd say that! Super easy, clean, and delicious!

Meal 4: 1 yellow (carb), 1 red, 1 green, 1 blue (healthy fat)

Portioned out sweet potatoes that I roasted in the oven with a little olive oil, sautéed extra firm tofu, mixed veggies (onions, mushrooms, asparagus, bell peppers, zucchini, whatever I have!), 1/4 avocado and some Tapatio to give it a kick!

Snack: 1 purple
Mixed Berries
Sparkling Water

Total containers:

6 green (I usually don't fill the containers all the way up, so it's usually around 4-5 servings of veggies)
4 red  (protein)
2 purple (fruit)
2 teaspoons (2 tsp almond butter in my smoothie)
1 yellow (carbs were reduced to one serving this week!)
1 blue (1/4 avocado)
1 orange (serving of salad dressing)

You can also replace a veggie protein with tempeh :)
