Full Plate recipes help you lose weight because they’re both slimming and filling.
The more fiber a recipe contains the better it is for losing weight and filling you up.
We categorize our recipes 3 ways, good, better, best.
- GOOD recipes contain an above average amount of fiber
- BETTER recipes contain a higher amount of fiber
- BEST recipes contain the highest amount of fiber
Kiwi Sorbet [Best Choice]
My kids have a dairy allergy. So I have a collection of recipes that mimic ice cream stored up in hopes they won’t miss out on one of the good things of childhood. Lucky for the adults, this one relies on beautiful kiwis and limes, which means there’s quite a bit of fiber and no added sugar, so we don’t have to worry about enjoying this dessert every single day.
Chickpea Greek Salad [Better Choice]
We just ordered a giant bag of chickpeas from Azure Standard. So, I’ve been cooking every chickpea recipe out there. I love that this is packed with great high-fiber weight loss foods. Dig in and enjoy! And feel free to share with any friends that are sensitive to dairy and gluten.
Chinese Turkey with Zucchini Noodles [Good Choice]
If you’re new to Full Plate or living with someone who is, this is a great recipe for learning how to make small changes. You can still keep a favorite meat on the plate, but you get to add in veggies. Spiralized zucchini “zoodles” are a nice swap for carb heavy noodles. And if you’re feeling adventurous, add in some spiralized carrots for more color, nutrients, and fiber.
Slimming Tip: Make this recipe more weight loss friendly by replacing half of the ground turkey with mashed up chickpeas. You’ll get more fiber in the dish and reduce the amount of saturated fat. Win/win!
