Meal 1 – Breakfast – Oatmeal – Zumba Weight Loss Recipes
As we all know “Breakfast is the most Important Meal of the Day”. When you wake up in the morning you are in a fasting state for almost 8 to 9 hours. When you wake up you need something which can fire up your metabolism and give you the nutrients to get you started.

Half cup of Water
How to make Oatmeal for Breakfast?
First take half cup of Oats in a bowl and add little bit of water only to dip the oats. Don’t put too much water. Heat it in a microwave for 50-60 seconds. If you don’t have a microwave then cook it on a gas stove for 50-60 seconds, not for long. When it is cooked for 60 seconds then mix Whey Protein in it.
Mix it properly and then for toppings add 10 crushed almonds, 12 Raisins, thin slices of half Apple & finally add Cinnamon. And Voila!!! Your tasty breakfast is ready.

One Coffee Mug
Non Sticky Spray or Oil
One Scoop Whey Protein
One Tablespoon Peanut Butter
How to Make High Protein Cup Cake?
First take the Non-Sticky Spray and spray it in the coffee mug. If you don’t have a non-sticky spray then put some oil on your fingers and rub it inside the cup. Then, put one scoop of Whey Protein in the cup. Pop an egg in the cup and then put one tablespoon of Peanut Butter in the cup. Mix all the three ingredients in the cup properly.
Now, put the mixture in a microwave for 40 seconds, not even one second longer. Then take it out, use a knife to carve out the cupcake from the coffee mug. It won’t be that hard to carve hit out because you have used a non sticky spray or oil. Boom! Your High Protein Cup Cake is ready.
Meal 3 – Chicken Salad – Lunch – Zumba Weight Loss Recipes
Since you have been eating clean from morning, you should have a protein packed, low carbohydrate and loaded with healthy fat diet in the afternoon too. This Zumba Weight loss recipe will be one of the best zumba diet recipes throughout the day. Let’s get started.
!/2 Cup Cabbage
100 grams Chicken Breast
¼ Cup Kidney Beans
150 grams Cottage Cheese
I’ve put both Chicken & Cottage cheese in the ingredients. Vegetarian people can use Cottage Cheese which is good source of fat and high in protein. Choose non fat Cheese and Strictly use Grilled Chicken.
How to make Chicken Salad?
Before we start, Let me tell you that this meal is super easy to make.
Fist put all the vegetables like Cabbage, Spinach, Tomato, Cucumber, Carrot in a bowl. Then toss the Raisins, Almonds, Kidney Beans, & Chicken Breast or Chicken as per your choice in the bowl. In the last step, sprinkle half tablespoon of Olive oil and half tablespoon of Vinegar in the bowl. Mix them if you want to or have them as it is.
You can even carry it to your office but avoid vinegar if you put it into the container. It will make the vegetables soggy. My mantra is – “No Excuses”. Carry this amazing, tasty, fat burning lunch with you to get in the shape you’ve always wanted.

In most of the meals I’ve mentioned Whey Protein as one of the ingredients. The big question is How to choose a Whey Protein?
The process is simple. Choose from the best brands. There are several brands in the market. Choose the brands which is most suitable for you. Then check how much grams of protein is available in one scoop. Stay in your budget. Choose the size you need, either for a month or more. Choose your favourite flavour. Order hit from a trusted source or physically visit a nutrition store & buy the Whey Protein
How to Choose a Multivitamin?
You need all the vitamins and minerals for your body & it is impossible to get all the nutrients from food. So, take a Multivitamin from the best brands which are approved by the Food Association either FDA or ISI. Check the label of the bottle and see whether the bottle contains proper and balanced nutrients you need for a day. See if there are any side effects of the Multivitamin & Consult your Physician before consuming a Multivitamin.
