Three Healthy Recipes for Weight Loss
You know that the best way to manage your weight is to maintain a healthy, balanced diet that gives you the energy and nutrition you need for long-term weight loss. And the best way to do that is to prepare your own meals.
As simple as that sounds, it’s much easier said than done. But you’ll make healthy eating easier and more fun if you turn it into a search for new and interesting foods and flavours.
When you shift the focus of your weight management program from the daunting task of losing weight to the more interesting pursuit of finding tasty and healthy options for meal preparation, you increase your chances of success and staying on track.
Here’s a few healthy recipes we’ve found on the web to help you get started
- Chicken & Lentil Soup: Flavoured with herbs and spices – instead of fat and excess carbs – this soup is filling and full of protein, which helps reduce how much you eat and burn more calories. Even better, you go from scratch to tasty soup in about 45 minutes.http://www.skinnytaste.com/2009/01/lentil-and-chicken-soup-3-pts.html
- Chicken Casserole: You gotta love a recipe that says “add extra if you like”. That’s because they’re talking about vegetables, black pepper and savory Italian herbs. There’s enough variety in this meal that you don’t need any side dishes, but a green salad would be a nice diversion – but remember to have the dressing on the side.
- Slow-Cooker Superfood Soup: There are few better tasting ways to promote weight loss. At just 157 calories a serving, and flavoured with cilantro, garlic, chili powder and cumin, you get an incredible taste sensation with just a single gram of fat. Let’s eat!
