If you want to lose weight but are struggling with your weekly meal plan, check out our collection of healthy and easy-to-make fat-burning recipes.
All of these fat burning recipes use the core principles of healthy eating to help you shed the pounds – a balance of protein, ‘healthy’ whole grain carbohydrates and low fat, as well as fiber and plenty of vegetables and fruit. These foods will work to keep you full all day, and provide you with the nutrients your body needs to stay energized.
This Middle eastern poached egg dish looks naughty but is actually very good for you. Eggs supply you with protein, keeping you full and energized, and tomatoes contain antioxidants to help fight inflammation. This dish also contains 40% of your daily fiber requirements – perfect for keeping you full until lunchtime. It isn’t one for when you need to leave the house in a rush, but makes an excellent weekend brunch.
Making this dish is very simple and it only requires one pan – an iron skillet is best if you have one, as it needs to go in the oven. This will feed several people. Preheat your oven to 400 F. Heat a little oil in the pan, fry some chopped onion and several cloves of garlic, then add half a cup of chick peas. After frying for a couple of minutes, add one can of diced tomatoes and seasoning – 1 teaspoon of cumin, one of cinnamon, two of paprika and half a teaspoon of red pepper flakes. Simmer the pan for 10 minutes. Add some chopped chard for extra nutrition and simmer for a minute more. Now you add the eggs – a little skill is involved here, so take your time. They need to stay in one place and poach through, so make six little wells in your pan then add one egg in each. You then put the dish in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the egg whites have turned from clear to white. Serve and enjoy!
