Fat Burning Meal Plans - Foods To Help You Burn Body Fat
you in a "fast-food" rut because you think you are too
busy to cook healthy meals? Every day I talk to people who say they
just don't have the time to cook or to eat healthy. That excuse
doesn't work with me. We are all busy, but we live in a society
full of convenience items. It truly cannot get any easier than it
is. You can buy pre-cut, pre-washed fruits and vegetables. You can
buy pre-marinated meats. You can buy broccoli that you cook IN the
bag, and it only takes 4 minutes in the microwave. There is instant
rice, instant potatoes, the list goes on and on. You can even buy
onions that are already chopped for you. Honestly, the only way
it could get easier is if you had a personal chef to do all of your
cooking for you!
I am going to give you three FULL meal ideas that are healthy,
low-calorie, low-fat, and can all be prepared in UNDER 30 minutes!
No more excuses
Chicken breasts -look for pre-marinated chicken breasts in the
refrigerated section of your grocery store, they come in different
flavors and in bags of 6 or 8. Each chicken breast is individually
wrapped which make for quick thawing if you freeze them.
- Broccoli - find bags in the produce section of your supermarket
that are pre-washed and precut
- Couscous - found in the rice aisle of the store, comes
in several different flavors
Cook the chicken breasts on the grill or saute' in a skillet coated
with non-stick cooking spray. Poke holes with a fork in the broccoli
bag and cook in the microwave for 4 minutes. Follow cooking directions
on couscous box, usually takes 5-8 minutes to prepare. Your entire
meal is ready in 20-30 minutes.
- Fish - any type
- Green beans - again, look for pre-washed and precut
- Instant brown rice
Sprinkle the fish with lemon pepper or your favorite seasoning.
Cook on the grill or in a skillet coated with cooking spray. Poke
holes in the bag of green beans and cook in the microwave for 4-5
minutes. Follow directions on the box for the rice. Again, your
entire meal is ready in about 20 minutes.
This is a favorite in my house, and makes great left-overs!
