If you want to lose weight and keep it off, you'll need to eat foods that give you the energy you need, taste great, and reduce those food cravings you always have! Recipes that contain lean proteins, healthy fats, and low glycemic carbohydrates are the best if you want to lose weight and keep it off! Here are 3 recipes you can try:
1) Chicken Zucchini with Pine Nuts
1 skinless, boneless chicken breast
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
First sauté the chicken in 1 tsp olive oil, when it's partially cooked add soy sauce and water. Slice the chicken when it's done.
Then slice the tomato and zucchini and sprinkle the slices with vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
Top it off with the chicken and pine nuts.
This will make 1 serving. Simply double or triple the ingredients to make more. This recipe should take 10 minutes to prepare and 10 minutes to cook...so you'll have dinner on the table in 20 minutes! Not bad!
2) Veggie Omelet with Turkey Bacon
2 large eggs
1/6 cup sliced mushrooms
1/6 cup chopped onions
1/6 cup chopped peppers
2 slices turkey bacon
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
This recipe will also take 10 minutes to prep and 10 minutes to cook.
First, chop onions, peppers, and mushrooms.
Second, you'll beat the eggs in a bowl.
Next, you will cook the vegetables in the olive oil for about 5 minutes.
Finally, you'll reduce the heat, add the egg mixture, cook and stir for about 5 minutes. Serve the bacon on the side and you're ready to eat!
3) Grilled Salmon with Spinach and Tomato Stack
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 cup spinach
1 fillet of salmon
2 tbsp fresh basil
1 medium tomato
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
You'll start by brushing the pan with olive oil, heating it until it's sizzling hot, and then put the salmon down, skin side down.
Add the tomato (sliced) and sprinkle half the basil leaves and cook for 3-4 minutes.
Turn over the salmon and tomato and cook for another 2-3 minutes, until the salmon is cooked through but still tender.
Remove the pan from the heat; put the spinach leaves on the serving plate, top with the tomato slices, and then the salmon.
Drizzle with a few drops of olive oil and some balsamic vinegar, then sprinkle with the remaining chopped basil leaves. Serve immediately.
I hope you enjoy these recipes. Not only are they healthy and conducive to weight loss, you should be able to prepare each of them in under 20 minutes. Good luck!
