It’s easy to modify your favourite evening meals to make them suitable for weight-loss.
We believe that making small, manageable changes to your diet is the easiest approach. We call these ‘simple swaps’ and it involves swapping foods that are either easy to overeat or less nutritious with equally-delicious veggies. Embracing simple swaps is one of the fastest ways to improve nutrition we know, plus you can still enjoy the same food as everyone else.
Simple swaps for weight-loss
✔️ Swap RICE for cauliflower or broccoli rice
✔️ Swap POTATOES for roasted cauliflower or celeriac – or you could try cauliflower mash
✔️ Swap PASTA for NOODLES for courgetti
✔️ Swap TORTILLA WRAPS for iceberg lettuce wraps
Why? Because rice, potatoes, pasta and breads contain significantly more calories than the swaps we recommend.
[By the way, it’s pretty simple to make cauli or broccoli rice or mash – but we’re all for keeping it simple – boiled or steamed florets are just fine, especially on a school night and are delicious roasted in a little olive oil for something different!]
Simple swap recipes:
All the flavour, but without the starchy carbs
Whether you fancy a chilli or a spag bol – remember that the overall flavours come from the protein and the sauce – not the rice or pasta, so enjoy this served over a large serving of steamed, boiled or buttered greens instead.
Why? Because veggies grown above ground are mostly water and fibre and packed with vitamins and minerals.
