Happy New Year 2016 | Healthy You
Here is to a new year and the obvious new year's resolutions!. Why not decide to just try and be healthier? No dieting!
Try these recipes like this Breakfast Salad Sandwich! Not only was it tasty and not too strange to have a sandwich for breakfast, but it also kept me feeling full until past lunch! Having something like this feels like a proper meal and it kept the hunger illusions at bay. It also didn't feel like diet food with the added chilli paste. But instead fry some of the peppers and some mushrooms with garlic and spice to add to the cottage cheese. It really helps! You could also add some fruit fro a bit of sweetness...
Here is what I used:
- 2 cracker breads
- 1/2 cup smooth or creamed cottage cheese
- 1/2 tsp smoked chilli paste
- 1/2 cup lettuce leaves
- 1/4 yellow pepper
- 1/2 small red onion
- Mix the cottage cheese and the chilli paste. Add some water or milk if it is too stiff.
- Slice the pepper and the onion.
- Layer the cottage cheese on the cracker bread then top with: cottage cheese, peppers and onion.
Another great breakfast option is just full cream yoghurt and fruit with 1/2 tsp honey. This is still more than 50% less sugar than other low fat or fat free fruit flavoured versions! Sad but true...
Or how about a steak, strawberry and grape salad? Sweet and juicy with only a little amount of fat! No added sugar and no carbs!
And if you are really going to go low carb, why not make your own bread that takes only 2 minutes in a microwave?
The options are endless and all it takes is for you to make better choices. Not always the perfect choice...just better than your usual one!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
