With the hectic pace most of us experience in today’s world, eating fast and well is no simple task. For many people, it’s much easier to just grab what’s convenient, rather than what’s healthy or less fattening. With a little planning, however, it is possible to achieve both. Another key to slimming your waistline is not waiting too long to eat. That’s a trap many of us fall into which causes us to grab the wrong food or just plain eat too much. Here are nine meals which are super easy to prepare and will help slim that extra bulge at the same time.
1) Oats with Berries & Greek Yogurt
Oats contain prebiotics, which feed the good bacteria already present in our bodies. Probiotics, such as those found in Greek Yogurt, add to that good bacteria. Combine them with some delicious berries and you have a great start to your day. For some added protein toss in some walnuts, peanuts, or almonds. Studies have found people who eat nuts have lower belly fat content. Nuts also provide fiber, which will keep you feeling full longer. Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, cranberries, whatever you prefer, will add fiber, and provide antioxidants. They also have much less sugar than some other varieties of fruits. You can also combine Greek Yogurt with berries and nuts for a dessert alternative or light filling and nutritious fat-burning snack. Oats and berries can also be baked into snack bars. Add some coconut oil and eggs. Coconut oil reduces belly fat due to the high fatty acid content.
