H Burn Recipes

Here are a few recipes I have written for H Burn. You can find the plan details in Haylie Pomroy's book, The Burn. This burn is a mini plan (10 days) for hormone repair. 

These meals are healthy fat, protein and veggie and can be used for lunch or dinner. You will need to add fruit to lunch. 

For the burns, if lunch and dinner are similar components, cook enough dinner to have for lunch the next day. If your burn is long, like this one, or you are doing multiple rounds, double some of these recipes and freeze the extras so cooking later in the burn is a snap.
