Hey guys!!! Here I am happy to be able to continue sharing this space with all of you. I just got back from Las Vegas but I didn't want to miss the opportunity to leave you another little help here on the blog so you too can start on the road to your ideal weight. Many of you ask me what my diet meals are like and so I wanted to share with you a menu of 5 meals that I love the Yes You Can! Diet Plan:

1) Chicken Tinga (breakfast):

Ingredients

- 1 tablespoon of olive oil

- 1/2 large onion, sliced

- 1 cup of cooked tomatoes

- 1 cup of chipotles adobados (or to taste)

- 1 shredded chicken breast

- 1 corn tostada

- 1/2 avocado

Preparation

Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and let it cook for approximately 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, blend the tomatoes with the chipotles. Pour over the onions and add the chicken. Cover and cook over low heat for 20 minutes.

Serve on toast and enjoy!

2) Tamarind balls with protein (snack):

Ingredients:

- 100 grams of tamarind

- 1 bottle of Yes You Can! Diet Plan vanilla protein

- 1/4 cup stevia

- 1 teaspoon salt

- 2 tablespoons chili powder (chile de arbol if you like it spicy)

- 1/4 cup water

Preparation:

1. Peel and devein the tamarinds, just squeeze them a little with your fingers and the husk will crack right off.

2. In a small saucepan add 1/4 cup of stevia, 1/4 cup of water, 1 teaspoon of salt, the protein shake and 2 tablespoons of chili powder, mix well and bring these ingredients to a boil over low heat.

Once boiling, add the tamarind and cook over low heat for 10-15 minutes or until the liquid evaporates and the tamarind is reduced to a thick paste.

Once the tamarind paste is ready. Remove from heat and let cool completely.

Once the tamarind is cool, remove some of the seeds from the paste, but do not remove all of them, as they help you mold the tamarind balls.

6. Take some of the tamarind paste and with your hands start forming the balls, if the tamarind is too sticky, you can sprinkle with a little more chili powder.

3) Shrimp tacos (lunch):

Ingredients:

- 2 small corn tortillas
