Low Fat Menu: 4 Great Low Fat Alternatives For Dinner

Low Fat Menu: 4 Great Low Fat Alternatives For Dinner

The typical dinner meal takes some planning and time for preparation. Whether you’re on a diet or just eating your regular meals, dinner time always takes a little advanced thought. Dinner also tends to be the heaviest meal you eat during the day. But it doesn’t have to be.

 

If you’re used to eating a heavy dinner at night for seven days a week, think about substituting a light meal for at least three of those days. This will help you to easily cut down on calories without having to do much.

 

It’s natural for your body’s metabolism to slow down after 7:00 pm so that means if you’re eating a heavy dinner after that time, your body will retain more of the fat and calories from food. You’re also not very likely to exercise during the evening hours, which means you won’t have an opportunity to burn off this last meal of the day.

 

On the other hand, alternative low calorie dinners won’t weigh your body down like a lead balloon, or make you feel full and bloated. Your body will more easily burn off the calories, plus, these alternatives make dinner a little more fun.

 

Here are four low calorie everyday meals that you can make quickly without a lot of fuss.

 

Cereal

 

If you enjoy eating cereal in the morning, consider having it for dinner. It may seem a little off-beat, but actually cereal is a great low fat meal that doesn’t take much effort to prepare at all. Healthy cereals that contain whole grain are the better choice, but you can also sneak in some of your old kid favorites.

 

There’s lots of variety to choose from. Your supermarket isle is filled to the brim with boxes of rice bran, wheat bran, whole wheat, corn flakes and oatmeal. Add in some fresh or dried fruits like: bananas, raisins, peaches, blueberries and apples.

 

Eggs

 

Another healthy breakfast menu item are eggs. Yes, the same eggs that have often gotten a bad rap over the years. Some diet plans will have you shy away from this source of natural protein out of fear. However, there’s no evidence that eggs are bad for your overall health. They certainly don’t contribute to significant weight gain, unless you pile a bunch of fat on top of them.

 

Whip up some scrambled eggs, poached eggs or an omelet for dinner. You can add some healthy items to make them more delicious like: low fat cheese, broccoli, fresh tomato, mushrooms, onions, salsa, garlic powder and seasoning salt. Include some wheat or whole grain toast and you’ve got yourself a tasty meal.

 

Soup

 

Soup has been around for ages, but just recently it has gained a lot of popularity for those looking to lose weight. Homemade soup is the ultimate, but to save time, you can just open up a can of healthy vegetable, bean, chicken noodle, tomato, or other delicious variety of soup.

 

It’s best to stick with the broth soups instead of the more calorie-laden cream variety. You don’t need to torture yourself with those extreme soup diets. Just eat soup for dinner regularly and watch those pounds drop off.

 

Salad

 

It may be one of the more obvious choices, but it’s still worth mentioning. While a lot of people have salad for dinner as a side dish, you can prepare quick and easy salads as the main course.

 

Use fresh, healthy greens and include items like: broccoli, onions, peas, kidney beans, red cabbage, beets, carrots, cauliflower, tofu, cheese, hard boiled eggs, ham, turkey, chicken salad, tuna salad, croutons, raisins and sunflower seeds.

 

You can put the greens in one big bowl and keep the fixings in individual containers. This way, people can pick out what they want and the leftovers store easily in the refrigerator. Serve with a balsamic, Italian or fruity vinaigrette or your favorite salad dressing.

• 3-4 sliced green onions

• Olive oil

• White Balsamic vinegar

• Sea salt and fresh ground pepper ( to taste)

• Make sure to remove any stems from the spinach and place the leaves in a salad bowl with the green onions

• Drizzle with a little olive oil (just enough to lightly coat the spinach)

To serve:

• Rinse the strawberries just before tossing the salad, dry them and slice them

• Add the toasted almonds and sliced strawberries to the salad bowl and sprinkle with white balsamic vinaigrette to taste

• Add a little salt and fresh ground pepper and toss the salad and then plate

And who can ignore a BBQ recipe on Memorial Day. Here’s one to check out –

BBQ Steaks

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup soy sauce

3 tablespoons minced garlic

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 teaspoons ground black pepper

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon onion powder

salt ( to taste )

1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring

1 pinch cayenne pepper

2 (1/2 pound) beef rib eye steaks

In a medium bowl, combine the vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, olive oil, ground black pepper, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, salt, liquid smoke and cayenne pepper.

Place steaks in a shallow, nonporous dish, and pour marinade over steaks. For optimum flavor, rub the liquid into the meat. Cover, and let marinate in the refrigerator for 24 to 48 hours.

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high to high heat. Grill steaks for 7 to 8 minutes per side on a lightly oiled grate.

And here’s one for the burger lovers –

Wasabi Salmon Burgers

Ingredients

• 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

• 1 1/2 teaspoons wasabi powder

• 1 pound salmon fillet

• 2 each scallions

• 1 each egg

• 2 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger

• 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

Cooking Instructions

Whisk soy sauce, wasabi powder and honey in a small bowl until smooth. Set aside.

With a large chef’s knife, chop salmon using quick, even, straight-up-and-down motions (do not rock the knife through the fish or it will turn mushy). Continue chopping, rotating the knife, until you have a mass of roughly 1/4-inch pieces. Transfer to a large bowl. Add scallions, egg, ginger and oil; stir to combine. Form the mixture into 4 patties. The mixture will be moist and loose, but holds together nicely once the first side is cooked.

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat for 1 minute. Add the patties and cook for 4 minutes. Turn and continue to cook until firm and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Spoon the reserved wasabi glaze evenly over the burgers and cook for 15 seconds more. Serve immediately.

PC Blue Menu low-fat honey dijon salad dressing

PC Blue Menu low-fat honey dijon salad dressing
low fat menu
Image by are you gonna eat that
While this dressing is fat-free, it has more sugars and carbohydrates than the full-fat dressings in my fridge.
The honey dijon is much sweeter than what I would put on my salads, but I would consider it as a dip for chicken if it weren’t for a faint artificial (chemical-like) aftertaste.
Taste: 4/10
Would purchase: No
Also available in California, Caesar, blue cheese, Italian and ranch flavours.
