Some of the Best Low Fat Diet Recipes
If you are planning to lose weight, one essential tool to have in your arsenal are low fat diet recipes. After all, you need to get into the kitchen and prepare healthy meals to achieve great results with your diet.
Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to lose weight if you are dining out all of the time. While you can indeed find healthy options in restaurants, it is hard to always know the truth about what is being added to your food. On the other hand, when you cook at home, you can control the exact number of calories and the amount of fat.
Try Out Gazpacho
If you are looking for low fat diet recipes, one easy to prepare option is gazpacho. In fact, you will find this meal simple to prepare even if you don’t like to cook. Gazpacho is made up almost solely of fresh vegetables. The only other ingredient is extra virgin olive oil. Although olive oil does indeed have some fat, it is heart healthy fat that will actually be of benefit to your body.
To make gazpacho, simply cut and add a variety of vegetables to your blender. These veggies should include tomato, cucumber, red onion, peppers, celery and cilantro. You will also want to use a tomato juice or tomato sauce base to ensure that your gazpacho has a liquid form.
When searching out low fat diet recipes, you will likely also find hummus on the list. Hummus contains very simple ingredients, namely, chickpeas, olive oil, tahini, garlic and lemon. Chickpeas make up the base of hummus, and they are high in fiber and have no cholesterol.
Of course, don’t go dipping chips into your hummus or that will quickly defeat the purpose. Instead, try cutting up fresh vegetables like carrots and bell peppers. The hummus can be used as a dip.
Of course, it goes without saying that salads are also great low fat diet recipes. Feel free to experiment with a wide variety of different vegetables. You can also add beans and nuts into salads for extra nutrition.
Keep in mind, however, that salads can quickly become fattening if you add too much cheese or salad dressing. So make sure that you dress your salad lightly. In fact, if you can use just oil and vinegar, your body will seriously thank you.
Eating low fat doesn't mean you will never eat a pizza any more. And there's more good news: there are plenty of low fat desserts that are very tasty.
