As half of your plate should consist of salad and/or vegetables, it helps to have lots of healthy and tasty salad recipes at hand. Bulking up your meals with salad and/or veggies is also a great way to cut down on the calorie and fat. To help you with some tasty and healthy salad ideas, I will share with you one of my favorite recipes. Here it is:
Tomatoes in Spicy Dressing
The first time I made this recipe I was extremely impressed. It is one of the most delicious salads I have tasted yet.
Number of fat burning foods: 3 (tomatoes, chili spice and avo oil)
Calories per serving:225
Fat per serving:17.5g
- 700g large ripe tomatoes, sliced
- 1 red onion, sliced
- 4 pickled gherkins
For the dressing:
- 2 tablespoons avocado oil
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- Salt and pepper to season
Cut the gherkins into thin slices length ways and then into thin strips. Mix all the dressing ingredients to make a dressing. Arrange half of the tomatoes in a dish, followed by some onions and gherkins. Continue layering until all the ingredients are done. Pour the dressing over the salad and leave to stand for 5 minutes before serving.
I hope that you enjoyed the salad recipe and that you make it also one of your favorites. It goes great with almost anything. Adding salads to your meals will help you to get lots of vitamins and minerals in your diet so that your body can become healthier and stronger. It will also help you to eat less of the foods and it may even help you to lose weight.
Just remember that to be more healthy and to maybe lose some weight, you also have to exercise regularly. The best exercises for weight loss are cardio and weight training. One of my favorite cardio machines is the eliptical exercise machine. And for weight training I prefer adjustable dumbbells.
