Kayla Itsines recipes guide contains just 35 recipes, nothing special considering you’re paying $19. In my opinion all of her guides should be included in her workouts but that’s just my two cents.

If you've searched for a 'diet plan' before, chances are you want an easy-to-make food guide so you look and feel great.
That's where Kayla Itsines comes in.As the world's leading fitness inspiration – Itsines' social footprint is roughly 50% of Australia's population – her arsenal is stocked full of fit recipes.
This is why, when you asked us for a healthy diet plan, WH recruited the BBG guide founder to create a one-day meal plan just for you.
Unlike other meal plans, this one requires no hard-to-find ingredients or a superfood budget that costs more than your gym membership. It also doesn't ditch any main macros; it's a simple, balanced plan to fuel your body with what it needs.
Therefore, resolving to 'start tomorrow' doesn't wash. Instead, head to your local Sainsburys tonight. You can easily get what you need to wake-up and crack on with eating right before the week is out.
Plus, it goes hand-in-hand with WH's exclusive four week workout plan from the PT herself. Consider Itsines' one-day meal plan and four-week workout series your inspiration to mix up your routine the healthy way.
Follow the below recipes to get your eating back on track without going hungry.

Dinner: Coconut chilli prawns with greens
Calories: 483 - Sat fat: 5.5g - Sugar: 7g - Serves: - 2
120ml light coconut milk
finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 fresh, long red chilli, finely chopped
2 tsp fish sauce
2 tsp reduced-salt tamari or soy sauce
20 medium raw prawns, peeled and deveined, tails intact
120g brown rice
240g pak choi, chopped
15 green beans, trimmed and halved
80g sugar snap peas,trimmed
1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
20g sesame seeds
lime wedges, to serve
1. Whisk the coconut milk, lime zest and juice, garlic, chilli, fish sauce and tamari (or soy sauce) together in a large bowl. Add the prawns and toss well to combine. Cover with cling film and pop in the fridge for 1-2 hours to marinate, if you have the time.
2. Soak 10 wooden skewers in cold water for 30 minutes. This will help stop them burning when cooking the prawns.
3. Place the rice and 300ml of water in a small saucepan over a high heat and bring to the boil, stirring occasionally. Cover and reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer for 20-25 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender. Remove from the heat and leave to stand, covered, for 5 minutes.
4. Preheat the barbie if the sun’s out. Otherwise, whack the grill on a medium-high heat. Thread the prawns on to the skewers. Grill for about 3 minutes on each side or until cooked to your liking. Once done, brush over again with the marinade.
5. Fill a saucepan 5cm deep with water and insert a steamer basket. Cover with a lid and bring the water to the boil over a high heat, then reduce the heat to medium. Add the pak choi and green beans and steam for 3 minutes, covered. Add the sugar snap peas and steam for a further 2 or 3 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender-crisp.
6. Time to dish it all up and sprinkle over the sesame seeds and coriander. Serve with lime wedges on the side. Traditional Aussie cuisine, the Kayla way.
