Fresh Huevos Rancheros [Good Choice]
Next time you’re craving eggs in the morning, try this delightful breakfast tostada. The beans add quite a bit of fiber and protein to the meal. But you’ll be cutting out most of the fat that comes with other typical egg breakfasts.
Sweet Potato Nachos [Better Choice]
If you’ve ever wished you could just eat nachos and continue to lose weight, this recipe is right up your alley. The surprising part? It’s made up of mostly high fiber foods, which makes it a whole lot more filling (and nutritious) than typical nachos.
Don’t be afraid to add other fun toppings too – black olives, diced red peppers, and even a bit of pico would work perfectly in this recipe.
Slimming tip: Use only ½ the cheese and opt for low fat sour cream, and you’ll shave off even more fat.
Blanched Broccoli [Best Choice]
Steamed broccoli is one of those foods that you have to force feed yourself for the sake of “health” when cooked badly. Or, it can be an incredibly delicious side when cooked just right. By blanching the broccoli, instead of steaming it, you can retain some of the crunchiness. And the lemon/garlic dressing makes it delicious – whether you decide to serve it warm, or cold.
