To lose weight effectively, it is necessary to ensure satiating lunches and dinners but that can offer us a decrease in our calorie consumption. Stop eating? Not at all. Learn what we can eat. Therein lies the secret. So in this article, I want to give you 6 perfect ideas for your weight loss diet.
The best way to interpret the concept of ” weight loss ” is to understand that it is a process of loss of excess body fat. This is the goal that many people seek and to achieve this they come to submit to strict diets, fad diets, miracle supplements or prolonged fasts, which are incompatible with a good state of health and with a good change in lifestyle habits that are what in the end they will avoid the rebound effect.
Lifestyle changes not only improve body composition but also the quality and life expectancy of a person so it is important to understand what are the necessary steps to achieve this vital change. If we focus on eating habits and more specifically on meals, planning homemade toppers can be a good tool to help us in these three aspects:
- Make sure we have good quality food every day
- Achieve greater control of quantities
- Improve the frequency of consumption of different foods, with good planning of the menus.
Now we are only missing the healthy and low-calorie proposals. Shall we start?
Potato salad with tzatziki sauce
Prepare your salad with potato, tomato, green pepper, onion and spinach leaves with natural tuna and hard-boiled egg.
The dressing should go apart and should be added at the time of consumption. In this case, I suggest you prepare a tzatziki sauce of yogurt and cucumber.
To prepare the sauce, grate a small cucumber and crush 1 or 2 garlic in the mortar. In a bowl, pour a natural yogurt, the grated cucumber, the crushed garlic, lemon juice (to your liking), some very chopped mint leaves, a pinch of salt and a dash of virgin olive oil. Let the sauce rest in the fridge for an hour.
Zucchini Spaghetti with Chickpeas
Saute the minced garlic and parsley in a frying pan smeared with a tablespoon of olive oil. Then pour in the boiled chickpeas, salt, and pepper, and stir a little. Finally add the zucchini spirals and cover to simmer for a few minutes. The pipes can be added at the end. They will give the preparation a crispy touch.
Salad and soupy rice
Preparation of soupy rice with prawns for two people: chop ½, onion, ½ green pepper, a clove of garlic, and a large tomato. Sauté the vegetables in a frying pan and then mash them. Put the crushed vegetables back into the paella and add 100 g of round rice with 300 ccs of fish stock, when it is tender add 200 g of prawns, previously peeled, washed, and fried. The rice must be semi-so that if necessary you can rectify it with water or broth.
Vegetables with sole to the papillote
For your grilled or grilled vegetables you can use eggplant, pepper, mushrooms, and tomato and prepare it round and round with the spices that you like the most. If you use an iron, pour a few drops of oil well distributed to prevent the vegetables from snagging.
Preparation of a sole with papillote: in the center of a kitchen paper roll place a fillet of sole and distribute on top pieces of onion, leek, and zucchini. Season and then close the paper, trying to keep it closed until the end of cooking. Preheat oven and cook 15′-20 ‘fish. Remove and wait for it to cool before storing it in the Tupper.
Pasta with broccoli and turkey
Microwave broccoli, whole-grain macaroni, chopped turkey, and curry. It is an express recipe since you can have it ready in less than 15 minutes.
To prepare it, first, wash the broccoli (if it is frozen it is not necessary to wash it). Then place it in a microwave-safe container with 3 tablespoons of water. Heat the broccoli at full power for 9-10 minutes and it will be done. Boil the whole macaroni with a little salt, for the time indicated by the package, and once cooked, you must drain them and rinse with tap water.
On the other hand, cook the turkey on the grill with a little curry or any species that you like, let it cool, cut it into pieces, and add these pieces again in the same pan with a little granulated garlic and chopped parsley. Add the broccoli and macaroni, stir a little to mix all the ingredients, and let cool.
Stew with salmon
Peel the potato, carrot, and onion, then rinse with a little water and cut them into small pieces. Also, wash the green beans and cauliflower and cut them into julienne strips.
Bring water to a boil with a little salt and when the water comes to a boil, add the peas first, wait a few minutes, and then add the carrot and onion. Let it boil for about 8 minutes and finally, add the potatoes and the cauliflower. When they are cooked, you can drain all the vegetables and let them cool before moving on to the Tupper.
Accompany your plate with grilled salmon, prepared in the pan with a little salt, pepper, and lemon. Being salmon rich in fat, it keeps quite well in a Tupper and you can enjoy its flavor and smoothness, even if it has not been prepared at the time.
