29 Noom Diet Ideas (With Healthy Recipes)

With the rise of lifestyle diseases like obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart diseases, many people strive to achieve cleaner lifestyles.

Due to this, nutritionists have come up with diets that could facilitate eating healthy. 

Some of these diets include keto, paleo, Mediterranean, gluten-free, vegan, and noom diets.

Noom diet is becoming popular, and many people are starting to follow it. But what is the noom diet?

What is the Noom diet?

Noom diet is a new diet that has gathered lots of followers in a brief period.

Many love it because, unlike other diets, it does not restrict you from eating some foods but encourages you to eat more nutritious foods.

Healthy food

This diet is ideal for people for weight loss and healthy living.

A coach will educate you on the foods that are best for you and those that are not. This training and education are done via an app, the Noom app.

How does Noom work

If you decide to follow the Noom diet, then you must know how it works first.

Download the App

You can download the app from Playstore if you have an android phone or Appstore if you use an iPhone.

There is a free trial period where you will be introduced to the program and learn how to use and navigate the app. After some time, you will be required to make monthly payments.

Through the app, you will be given a  personalized weight loss diet plan. This will be determined by your weight, goals, and activity level. Then you will be given a coach and recommended to join a support group.

You should record every meal you eat in the app. You will also access workout plans and articles on healthy living and noom dieting.

Learn about food categories

The Noom diet categorizes food in three main categories based on colors. 

Green. This is foods that are low in calories and usually very high in fiber. These foods include vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. They are filling, and because of the high fibers, they are easily digestible. They are very nutritious.

Yellow. This is the second category of food. It consists of foods that have moderate nutrients. They also have moderate calories, which are a bit more than green foods.  They include foods like yogurts, beans, low-fat meat.  You should enjoy these foods in moderation.

Red. Red is the most miniature nutritious food, has the most calories, and should be rarely enjoyed. They include alcohol, nuts, red meat, and chocolates.

Noom recommends its users eat meals that have a lot of green foods. Include yellow foods in moderation too. The green and yellow foods will let you stay full for longer. You can enjoy the red foods once in a while.

Most people avoid dieting because they do not know what to eat, while some people believe that diet foods are bland and not delicious. This is a significant misconception, and I am here to share with you some of the most delicious Noom recipes.

Many options for a noom breakfast are guaranteed to make even the pickiest eaters lick their fingers. Most of these options will also be perfect as noom snacks.

Do not fret. This recipe will help you make healthy sandwiches that will go well with your Noom diet needs.

Oatmeal is a must-have if you are looking to lose weight. Gratefully it is affordable and versatile, making it the most exciting breakfast meal. In addition, you can customize it as much as you want to fit your needs.

You can flavor your oatmeal more by adding some cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla.

On cold winter mornings, I love to kickstart my day with a smoothie. Unlike the days when I start the day with hot coffee, I make smoothies.

For that reason, I tend to be more energetic the whole day. I enjoy different kinds of smoothies, but this orange carrot smoothie stands out for me.

This delicious, spicy smoothing looks as good as it tastes. It is healthy and consists of lots of vitamins and nutrients. If your kids have the flu or cold, prepare this for them. It is sweet and tart.

Be careful when adding the oranges. Ensure you do not add the albedo( the white fleshy part between the skin and the juice sac) since it might make your drinks bitter.

Instead, add some turmeric for flavor as well as other health reasons like antioxidation.

Here is the recipe.

8. Avocado Egg Noom Recipe


Most Noom breakfast recipes recommend eggs and avocado. This is because eggs and avocado go so well together.

This combination has been eaten together for a long time, making it a classic dish.

This recipe recommends baby asparagus, balsamic vinegar, and some crushed black pepper to make this dish divine. If you have never tried black pepper on eggs, then you are missing out on a lot.

However, if you do not have the above ingredients, you can still enjoy this meal the traditional way. 

This breakfast is flavourful, delicious, and fancy. However, it falls under yellow zone foods; therefore, you should eat this food in moderation.

There are so many fresh foods at this time of the year. Every time I go to the grocery store, I first head to the section with zucchini, because why not? We do not enjoy zucchini as much during other seasons.

Zucchini is the green zone category in the Noom way of life. They are filling and have a lot of water.

They can be taken raw in a salad or cooked in many different ways. You can roast, grill, take it as noodles, steamed in smoothies, and even bake them.
