Other 17 Day Diet Cycle 2 Recipe Ideas

The sky is the limit when it comes to Cycle 2. Most community members can’t wait to have oatmeal, while others are excited for the expanded proteins such as beef and pork.

Here are a few other ideas for 17 Day Diet Cycle 2 Recipes that may be used for lunch or dinner:

Crab Cakes with Citrus Vinaigrette Dressing

This Crab Cakes with Citrus Vinaigrette Dressing recipe is a play off my Tuna Cakes with Lemon Dijon Sauce recipe. If you’re excited about expanding your proteins in cycle 2, this recipe is perfect for lunch paired with a green salad.

Chili Con Carne with Beans

Beans are a great fiber-rich natural starch allowed on your Cycle 2 days. However, keep in mind that natural starches must be eaten by 2pm. 

This Chili Con Carne with Beans recipe is a great lunch idea and is filled with yummy flavors that are perfect for the cooler weather.

If you don’t have an outdoor grill, use an indoor grill pan, frying pan or your oven’s broil feature.
