Winter is almost over and spring is around the corner, so put the soda down and reach for the salad. Get shredded for the summer by satisfying your cravings with these healthier protein focused choices.
FOODS YOU SHOULD SURPLUS AND SNACK ON
If you’re trying to lose weight, you should always have these items in your pantry and fridge. The easiest way to mess up your diet and stop the shredding is if you snack on the wrong things. So stock up on these items and munch on them if you ever need a quick snack.
- Greek yogurt, they’re protein heavy
- Pre-cut carrots
- Frozen edamame
- Almond butter
- Canned fish
- All types of fruit
All of these items are easy to grab and prepare, and also have heart healthy essential oils that keep you satiated. If you’re in a car, put some almonds and walnuts in the middle compartment area. If you’re sitting in front of the T.V., heat up some of your edamame in the microwave and sprinkle with salt.
YOU’RE IN A HURRY AND WANT A QUICK MEAL
Preparing your meals ahead of the time is the easiest way to eat healthily. But unless you’re a hyper dedicated health conscious person you more than likely won’t be prepping meals anytime soon. So, if you’re in a jam and you need a quick and healthy meal, make this.
- Canned, line-caught tuna in spring water
- Boxed baby spinach
- Olive oil and lemon juice for flavor
It may not be a fatty steak or a juicy burger, but it satisfies your hunger and helps keep off the pounds while you lose weight. All you need to do is place all in a bowl, and then mix it all up. You get your proteins, your fibers, and you even feel better about yourself after eating too!
WHEN YOU HAVE A BIT MORE TIME TO COOK
Say you’ve had a long week and you’ve decided not to torture your liver any longer by drinking copious amounts of alcohol. Well, if you have around one hour to prepare, cook, and eat, then you should make this.
- Salmon fillet
All you have to do is drizzle the fillet with a bit of olive oil and pepper, wrap it in tin foil, then bake at 325 fahrenheit for around 25 minutes. While that’s cooking, just boil some quinoa if you want a grain and check your social media accounts while you wait. This meal is super healthy, super protein dense, and highly Instragrammable!
