Find here some delicious low fat low carb recipes you can use after your cabbage soup diet week.
The problem with many low fat, low carb diets is that not only can they be difficult to try and plan, but they’re also usually pretty boring and tasteless too. However, we’ve come up with some ideas here, no matter what time of day the meal’s for:
This recipe is for a fast and refreshing breakfast, and can easily be added to with different flavours like salsa:
1 cup baby spinach, chopped
1/4 cup egg whites
1/4 cup reduced-fat cheese, shredded
1. Use butter spray to lubricate a microwaveable dish.
2. Put spinach in dish, with the cheese on top.
3. Add the egg whites.
4. Microwave for 2 minutes – you should see the egg whites get puffy.
5. Take out, stir, then microwave another minute until dry on top.
One of the most common ways that people put on weight is by getting lazy in front of the TV. If this is you, then this is an ideal snack for you.
All you need is a dozen corn tortilla chips, salt and vegetable oil. Brush the tortillas with the oil and cut into 6 wedges. Arrange them into a single layer and microwave them for 90 seconds. Turn them, and then repeat. Continue this turning and 90 second cooking until all the wedges are crisp. Take out the microwave and add salt.
A great and easy accompaniment for the chips is low fat mango salsa, which is also low in carbs. All you need is 2 mangos, peeled and cubed; 3 tablespoons of basil, finely chopped, half a cup of diced red pepper, 4 teaspoons of lemon juice, 3 tablespoons vinegar, salt and 2 jalapeno peppers, chopped and with the seeds removed. Mix them all together in a bowl, then leave at room temperature before serving.
Something I really enjoy is an Ostrim meat stick. Not only are they delicious and healthy for you, they’re low in carbs, calories and fat! The Teriyaki is a particular favourite.
Another favourite of mine is wild rice. It’s great with salads, and ideal to freeze for when you want to use it, and again it’s low in carbs.
