Healthy recipes for weight loss are required if you really want to lose weight. Exercise may not be enough if you are serious with your weight loss. The ideal meal plan for people serious in their weight loss is low fat, low carbs and high in protein. This type of meal plan should be followed each day or for six days except for one cheat day which allows a rest day.
To follow low fat, low in carbs and high protein meal plan, it is important that you learn to prepare your own food with healthy recipes instead of eating in a fast food.
Here are samples of healthy recipes:
Chicken with coleslaw wrap
5 ounces of chicken white meat
1 cup of coleslaw (do not include any dressing)
4 ounces of drained pineapple
¼ cup of non-fat dressing
2 whole-wheat tortillas (8 inches)
Place chicken, pineapple, coleslaw and the non-fat dressing in a clean small bowl. Mix and combine evenly. Cover and refrigerate for twenty to twenty-five minutes.
When serving, top the tortilla with chicken mixture. Fold each side of the tortilla and roll each side to close. Then serve immediately.
This type of recipe is high in fiber and high in protein. Fiber boosts good digestion and helps you to have normal bowel everyday while protein tones muscle mass. In addition, chicken is a better alternative than any other pork or red meat. This recipe also uses not fat dressing which is a better alternative than dressings which are high in sodium and high in carbs.
Beef and Veggie Kebabs
One half cup brown rice
2 cups of water
4 ounces of sirloin
3 tbps. non-fat Italian dressing
1 green pepper, remove seeds and cut into four pieces
Onion divided into 4 parts
2 skewers soaked in water for at least thirty minutes
Place a saucepan in a high heat. Mix the rice and water. Bring it to a boil. After boiling, reduce the heat to low, then cover and wait for it to simmer. Simmer the mixture for thirty to forty-five minutes or until the rice appears tender. Then, place it to a small bowl to keep the rice warm.
Cut the beef to four equal portions and pour non fat Italian dressing on the top. Place it into the refrigerator for twenty minutes.
Then prepare a griller or broiler. Spray thinly cooking spray to the broiler pan or griller. Place the cooking rack five to six inches from the source of heat. Place alternately on the skewers 2 cubes of beef, 2 slices of green pepper, 2 tomatoes and 2 wedges of onions. Then, put the kebabs on the broiler pan. Grill the kebabs for five to ten minutes. Turn the skewers when needed.
