    New Member - Modern Hero Plan

    Hello All.
    I am new to Darebee. This is my official second week following workouts and challenges. I started the meal plan today. My question is if there are other items you would like to include what is the deciding factor? For instance, I had spaghetti squash today with my protein for dinner. It is not on the list. I thought it would be okay but have no basis. Please help. Thanks. Also, just in case I missed it, we still cannot track our progress on the main page due to the hack correct? Also, for those who follow this plan what does breakfast consist of for you?

    Totally is. Zucchini and pumpkin are both types of squash and included under Vitality foods, so your spaghetti squash probably fits there as well. I think (and hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong) that the food lists are meant to be examples and not list out every possible food you are allowed to eat.

    Regarding breakfasts, there are some options in the Meal Examples that seem breakfast-y to me (some of these have recipes, some don't):
    Yogurt w/ fresh fruit
    Oatmeal with cinnamon & raisins
    Egg cucumber sandwich
    Fried eggs w/ spinach and mushrooms
    Baked eggs
    Cauliflower eggs

    Lots of people use the Breakfast Bars or Protein Bars for quick breakfast options. Just add fruit or veggie!

    While I'm at it, the Darebee Cottage Cheese Pancakes are pretty Modern Hero friendly and have become my go-to pancake recipe.

        Hi, we got a question about the Modern Hero Plan, too. It says "Cooked rice" and "cooked chickpeas" etc.. We want to cook the carbs ourselves. Does the "1/2 cup cooked" mean the endresult after cooking? As for rice it would yield 1,5 cups of cooked rice after cooking 1/2 cup of the raw rice.
        It would be a real challenge to find out how much uncooked food yields the 1/2 cup of cooked food.

          Hi Librarianista yes, that is correct. Here is the table for cooked legumes and grains.

          1 cup dry rice [ 180g | 6.3oz ] = 2 ½-3 cups cooked rice
          1 cup dry quinoa [ 180g | 6.3oz ] = 3 cups cooked quinoa
          1 cup dry lentils [ 180g | 6.3oz ] = 2 ½ cups cooked lentils
          1 cup dry black beans [ 180g | 6.3oz ] = 3 cups cooked black beans
          1 cup dry white beans [180g | 6.3oz ] = 3 cups cooked white beans
          1 cup dry chickpeas [180g | 6.3oz ] = 3 cups cooked chickpeas
          1 cup dry buckwheat [180g | 6.3oz ] = 3 cups cooked buckwheat

          I will add it to the mealplan's page as well.

          I hope this helps!
          We usually cook in bulk, tapperware it all and then use up everything throughout the week. We do this with sweet potatoes, rice, beans, lentils and quinoa. It's very handy!
