If you're just getting started with Intermittent Fasting, you're probably wondering what types of meals and recipes you should be making to achieve your weight loss goal. Today, I'm sharing 5 Intermittent Fasting recipes to get you started on your weight loss and wellness journey!
The Weight Loss Benefits of Intermittent Fasting
Intermittent Fasting can be an excellent tool to use for achieving a weight loss goal (just check out Ron's story of how he lost over 70 pounds in 6 months with Intermittent Fasting!). But a common slip up I see many people come across with Intermittent Fasting is eating the wrong types of foods at the wrong time and/or not eating enough during the eating window. If you're looking to achieve a weight loss goal through Intermittent Fasting, you certainly need to be factoring in WHAT you're eating as well as WHEN you're eating it. You can check out the full details with the article below.
5 Intermittent Fasting Recipes For Fat Loss
To help get you started on your Intermittent Fasting journey, I'm sharing 5 recipes you can use with Intermittent Fasting to help burn fat. Each of these recipes utilize the principles within the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle protocols to help your body turn on the fat burning process called lipolysis by reducing the secretion of your storing hormone insulin. Simply put, these recipes can help amplify your fat loss results with Intermittent Fasting!
If you're brand new to Intermittent Fasting, using Keto Coffee can be an excellent tool to reduce hunger during your fast without spiking the fat storing hormone insulin. There are a variety of ways to make Keto Coffee to fit your taste preferences. You can check out 5 of my favorite Keto Coffee recipes to use with Intermittent Fasting HERE.
Blackberry + Cream Dream Smoothie
Smoothies are excellent to use as a meal replacement with Intermittent Fasting (when made to optimize protein, fat and fiber) because they can be brought on-the-go. With Intermittent Fasting, your eating schedule will shift and therefore your first meal might interfere with work or plans. This is where a smoothie comes in. You can blend up your smoothie earlier in the day, store it in a thermos to keep it cool then just give it a shake before you're ready to drink it! This is why I LOVE using smoothies with the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle protocols as a fast and easy meal option.
10-12 oz. water or unsweetened nut milk
1 serving Autumn's Vanilla Protein Powder OR 1 cup unsweetened greek yogurt
1 scoop unflavored or vanilla collagen powder
1 Tbsp. Chia seeds
1-2 Tbsp. Peanut butter
1/4 cup frozen blackberries
Blend all ingredients in a blender. Optional to top with low-sugar toppings such as cacao nibs or toasted coconut flakes.
Cauliflower Rice Burrito Bowl
Regular white rice can drastically spike the fat storing hormone insulin and make it more difficult for you to achieve your weight loss goal with Intermittent Fasting. By swapping out the very starchy and refined white rice with high fiber and nutrient dense cauliflower rice, this recipe suddenly becomes much more in line with your weight loss goals.

Warming Cabbage + Egg Scramble
Eggs are one of my favorite sources of protein with Intermittent Fasting because it provides high quality, satiating protein as well as fat. This can help prevent hunger while providing the amino acids necessary to build cells and hormones in your body.
1 Tbsp. grass-fed butter, divided
1-2 cups chopped cabbage
1/4 cup sliced onions (I love using red onions)
Pinch of sea salt
2 Tbsp. pumpkin seeds
Optional 1 oz. sharp cheddar
1. Lightly sauté the onions, cabbage, butter and salt for a few minutes. Add this combo to your plate.
2. Add the remaining butter and your scrambled eggs. Cook until it reaches desired doneness.
3. Top with pumpkin seeds and optional cheese!
Fresh Ginger Tea
Two slices of fresh ginger comes in at under 1g of carbohydrates and therefore won't break your fast. Plus, ginger has been found to aid in oxidative stress and inflammation reduction.(1)
I recommend boiling 8-10 oz. of water with 2 slices of freshly cut ginger for roughly 5-10 minutes. This will further infuse the ginger flavor more than simply steeping ginger in hot water.
