The key to weight loss, apart from lots of exercise, is to actually enjoy healthy foods. Giving up carbohydrates like bread and pasta isn’t the easiest thing for some people to do, (believe me I know). Find you a filling substitute is what I’ve found hardest.
What you can do about it is make yourself the nicest tuna nicoise salad, in the world (perhaps!):
Keep in your fridge at all times some:
1) Romanian gem lettuce
2) Chopped red onion
3) Sweet corn
(These are your salad basics which are always easy to keep in the fridge.)
If you want a bigger portion, say you’re a bit hungrier, boil an egg, add some fresh pepper, add some new potatoes.
– Now to make it seriously delicious you take your gem lettuce and wash it with water, chop it up into little bitesize pieces and put on your plate still dripping with water (all will be explained).
– Add your ingredients- your tuna, your onion, your egg, your pepper, your tomatoes, your sweet corn (aim for a plateful consisting of 300 calories).
– Now the good bit- make sure it is all seasoned with salt and pepper, then add a tablespoon of hot salsa and mix.
– Take some expensive balsamic vinegar, add a teaspoon or less. add half a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil.
The water at the bottom of the bowl will dilute the dressing and cover the whole salad and believe me the taste is sensational! Give it a try!
