When you’re trying to lose weight you have to be careful about what goes into your mouth. Get it wrong and you will be fighting a losing battle. Take a look at some of these great meals you should include in your diet from now on. I’m sure you will love a few of them if you test them out, so choose your favorites and throw your cooking apron on.
Throw together a quick smoothie
The mighty breakfast smoothie has to be the top choice for anyone looking to lose weight. The fact you can add almost anything to them makes them even better. When you’re running around in the morning trying to get ready for work you don’t have much time to cook anything, but everyone has time to throw a few select ingredients into a blender. Make sure you use lots of vegetables and fresh fruit because your smoothie will be packed with lots of goodness.
An omelet with anything
Omelets are one of the most basic snacks in the world because they don’t contain any carbohydrates and they’re low in calories. This makes them a great choice when you’re trying to lose weight. Eggs already contain a nice amount of protein, but if you want to add some more to your meal you can throw meat inside your omelet. If you want your daily fix of vitamins and minerals you can also make them with lots of delicious vegetables.
A delicious Thai curry
Thai curry has to be one of the healthiest meals in the world and it will fill you up easily. The reason it’s so amazing is because the main part of the dish is comprised of coconut milk. Did you know coconut if the ultimate superfood? It contains a huge amount of fat, but the fat in coconut is special because the body uses it for energy instead of turning it into fat. Thai curry also contains a nice helping of meat and the chilies speed up your metabolism.
A pot of stew
Have you seen that cheap-looking meat in the butcher’s everyone tends to shy away from? Most people don’t buy it because it’s still very tough when you cook it, but that all changes when you throw it into a slow cooker for an entire day. The tough meat becomes so tender it melts in your mouth. If you cook a pot of stew using cheap meat it won’t burst a hole in your wallet, plus if you add plenty of vegetables you’ll end up with a delicious carb-free meal.
I think we can all agree flapjacks are tasty, but the ones you buy from the supermarket are full of carbs. When you’re trying to lose weight you don’t want to eat anything that doesn’t contain any protein. There is a little trick you can use but it will involve baking your own flapjacks. When you’re mixing everything together you should throw in a few scoops of protein powder. Now your once carb-heavy snack becomes a delicious protein-rich treat.
