We’re finally at the end of January. The long month seems to have dragged on for ages. If you started the new year with a resolution to lose weight, or eat more healthy, then we can almost guarantee you’ve failed already. It is just a genuinely hard month to get through, and eventually comfort eating will kick in. But it isn’t just that. When people set out with it in their mind that they’re going to eat healthy, eating really healthy is all they do. Salads and massively dropping calories are their new best friend. But this is where so many people fail. The boringness of the diet leads to snacking. Well we’re here to show you it can be different. There’s plenty of low fat tasty meals that you’ll happily substitute for the junk food you love so much. They’re all family favourites too. Read on to find out more.
Yep, that’s right, beef burgers can be healthy for your. In fact, they’re really nutritious, it is all down to the way we cook them and what we put on them. All you need to do is make sure you’re getting some low fat fresh halal beef, or normal beef whichever you prefer, and mind how you’re cooking it. For it to be low fat you would generally want the percentage to be 5%, and the meat to be lean. If you’ve got something like a George Foreman grill, then great, but the pan will also do just fine. Don’t use olive oil, use light spray sunflower oil. A lot of them are only 1 calorie per spray, and you only need a spray or two. A much healthier alternative. Cook as necessary and garnish the burger with a homemade relish, recipe is here, lettuce, tomato, onion, and whatever else you might like – potato wedges are a firm favourite in our house, or you could do it with sweet potatoes.
This is a fabulous idea that we’ve seen surface over the last few months and rise in popularity. They’re a yummy and low fat start to the day! All you need is a cupcake baking tray, bread, eggs, low fat cheese, tomatoes, spinach, bacon, onion, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cut out circles of the bread to match the holes in the tin. Dry the bacon off until crispy and wrap it around the edge of the hole. Sprinkle in some cheese, a thin layer of finely chopped tomatoes, onions, and a layer of spinach. Crack the egg into the mould and finish with a sprinkle of cheese and seasoning, Bake for around 10 minutes at 220 degrees!
Tuna Pasta Salad
A quick lunch we know you’re going to love. All you need is brown pasta, tuna, light mayo, and whatever vegetables you’d like to put in. Cook the past until soft, empty and mix in the tuna, add in the chopped vegetables, and pour on your mayo! A healthy lunch that is really easy to make. If you don’t like mayo, you can substitute it for another dressing, just make sure it is low fat!
