1. Easy fruits
Getting in those five a day has never been tastier. They aren’t only tasty but they also fill you up without any added carbs. You also have a vast variety of fruits to pick from-watermelons, apples, carrots, bananas and so much more. They also keep you healthy as they contain a lot of minerals and nutrients.
You can eat them as whole fruits, or decide to have them as fruit salad or use them to garnish your meals. You could also use them to make pies which are all so tasty. Fruits are a very good recipe for someone watching their weight.
2. Green vegetables
A lot of people aren’t big fans of veggies. But if you are truly serious about watching your weight, you would get rid of all your carbohydrate containing foods and stick to your veggies. Veggies keep you very healthy, clean out your system and keep your metabolism running fine.
They also don’t contain carbs. You could decide to eat the vegetables raw and fresh or cook them as soups or also use them to garnish your meals. Vegetable salads are not a bad treat as well.
