Losing weight can be really challenging, and even much more if you find it difficult to get the right meals to fit in. Not everyone have the luxury of time to prepare large meals that consumes a lot of time, but that shouldn’t limit you from eating right and keeping up with your fitness goal. One of the ways to make your weight loss journey an easy one is by incorporating meals that are quick and easy to make.
Below are 5 quick and easy fat burning recipes to try out:
1. Broccoli and feta omelet with toast
Take out 15 minutes of your time to prepare this meal that energizes the body and gives full satisfaction. To prepare this meal, heat a pan over medium heat, and cover with cooking spray, then add your broccoli and cook for about 3 minutes. Once that is done, combine egg, feta, and dill in a bowl. This meal has just 30 calories per serving, and also contains fiber that keeps you full for a longer period. The eggs are rich in protein, to curb appetite and help reduce cravings.
2. Tartine with blackberry-thyme salad
You will need blackberries, tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, sugar, lemon juice, salt, baguette, butter, and low-fat yogurt. Stir the crushed blackberries, thyme, sugar, lemon juice, and salt in a bowl, then split the baguette dough lengthwise and cut into 4. Now, spread each of the pieces with 1/2 tablespoon butter and then top it with 1/4 of the blackberry salad.
3. Spiced green tea smoothie
Green tea is one of the top fat-burning foods, and making it into a nice smoothie is a great idea, especially if you are tired of the hot green tea.
Ingredients: 3/4 cup strong green tea, chilled, 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, juice of 1 lemon (2-3 Tbsp), 2 teaspoons agave nectar, 1 small pear skinned on and cut into pieces, 2 tablespoons fat-free plain yogurt, and 6-8 ice cubes. Put all these ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth, serve chilled.
4. Chocolate-dipped banana bites
Yes, you can still take dessert and not alter your healthy meal. While chocolate functions to boost the metabolism, bananas are the richest source of resistant starch, and the combination of these two makes a great weight-loss dessert. You will need 2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips and a small banana, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks. Place chocolate chips in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag or small microwave-safe bowl, and microwave for one minute at a high temperature till chocolate melts. Then, dip banana pieces in chocolate.
