Season’s greetings Nigeria. It’s that time of the year when we celebrate with family and friends. It’s also that time of the year when we make yummy dishes to enjoy with our loved ones. If you are on a weight loss journey, this article is for you. Herbal Pro Limited, manufacturers of Nigeria’s number 1 herbal weight loss remedy present 5 treats that are not only healthy but also helps with weight loss.
Replace beef with fish and make some yummy fish pepper soup
Pepper soup is one of the best when it comes to eating healthy with the aim of losing weight or maintaining weight loss. Pepper soup is made with herbs and spices such as chilli pepper, African nutmeg (Ehuru), black cardamom (Engels), basil leaves (Utazi), Thyme seeds, etc. which have a lot of wellness and weight loss properties. By keeping fit in mind, replace the beef with fish such as salmon, Cod, Tilapia, and albacore tuna, which are high in Omega 3s which in turns helps you fight unhealthy cravings.
Replace sodas with freshly squeezed fruit juice
Fruits are healthy and contain healthy calories. Choose freshly squeezed juice in place of sodas. Combine apple, orange, lemon, lime, watermelon, pawpaw, pineapple, mangoes and any other fruit of your choice to create a healthy, yummy drink. Fruits not only satisfy our sweet tooth, they also contain nutrients and vitamins beneficial to our body, unlike sodas that are just flavour and sugar.
Make vegetable sauce/ salad for your rice
We always recommend you eat less carbohydrates, but in Nigeria, rice is one of the most popular foods for the holiday with varieties such as jollof rice, fried rice, coconut rice etc. making their way from the kitchen to the dinner table. If rice is part of your holiday menu, then we suggest you add some yummy vegetable sauce or salad. Use pumpkin leaves, scent leaves, tomatoes, pepper, fish and offals (assorted meat) for your vegetable sauce. These contain nutrients and offals (assorted meat) are easy to digest. You also have to be mindful of your vegetable salad dressing so as not to pile calories on a offals (assorted beef) are easier to digest. You also have to be mindful of your vegetable salad dressing so as not to pile calories on a rather healthy meal. Instead, make your own salad cream with a combination of olive oil, lemon, apple cider vinegar, honey, garlic, salt and pepper.
5. Make a fruity cake desert
If you are into baking, then you may want to make a fruit infused cake for the celebration. Don’t make the conventional fruit cake which is packed with calories. Instead, use dried fruits soaked in apple juice for natural sweetness. Decorated with nuts, and glacé and crystallised fruits, it makes a healthy cake that would be festive enough for Christmas.
5. Make chicken healthier
If serving chicken is part of the menu, try new, healthier ways to prepare your chicken such as grilling, air frying, baking or stir fry without the skin. Stay away from deep frying your chicken. You can also shed your chicken and stir fry with your vegetables.
