The best foods to cut weight should be both healthy and tasty. When it comes to taking care of your body and developing healthy habits, you should certainly keep your standards high. Besides, once you're done feasting over the holidays, you'll possibly want to eat some meals that are on the lighter side anyway. We decided to gather delicious recipes that will also make your road to healthier eating a lot happier and more enjoyable.
The most important element to keep in mind as you embark on a new diet is that balance is everything. As a result, you have to shed the "all or nothing" attitude when it comes to shedding weight and healthy living if you want to shed the pounds, too. So if you ever feel like splurging on calories or giving into your sweet tooth, that's absolutely fine.
If you'd rather begin your day off with something on the savory side, it doesn't get any better than this spicy stir-fry dish from The First Mess. It's loaded with ingredients (avocado, beans, and tempeh, to name a few) that will give you the energy you need to fuel you throughout the day without weighing you down. It's also vegan, so if you're curious about trying out that diet, this is an excellent option.
Spice up you tabletop style
As you can tell just by glimpsing at the image of the gorgeous image above, this meal is packed with superfoods and yummy, colorful goodies. You can have this meal for lunch if you already had a light breakfast, or it could serve as both your breakfast and lunch. This recipe will get you through the rest of the day, thanks to the hardy couscous base and protein-packed toppings, such as eggs, feta, chickpeas, cabbage, and pumpkin seeds.
Here's another vegan recipe you'll certainly enjoy and reap the benefits of, regardless of your dietary needs. Complete with crispy squash, tasty dill sauce, and wild rice, this bowl would be perfect to prepare on a Sunday night, and then bring to work for the next couple of days. And if you don't like to spend much time planning and making your food, this one is an excellent low-touch option.
In case you chose to eat a more filling lunch or snack earlier in the day, go for something on the lighter side once dinner rolls around. We adore this kale citrus salad from Minimalist Baker. In fact, even if you aren't trying to cut weight or eat healthier foods, this meal is tasty (and pretty enough) to make the cut.
Weight-loss food ideas never looked so mouth-watering. From Half Baked Harvest, these al pastor tacos are fantastic if you're cutting back on meat. You better fill them with cauliflower. You can also always choose to wrap them in lettuce wedges if you'd like not to have the tortilla. You truly can't go wrong either way.
