What are the best vegetarian recipes to lose weight?
i`m trying to lose weight ( about 20 pounds ) & i`ve become vegetarian recently, so what are the best vegetarian recipes to lose weight?
p.s. i didn`t go vegetariena to lose weight. i did it because i can`t stand even the smell of meat anymore & i don`t want animals to suffer because of me.
Food does not make you lose weight.
Eating fewer calories does that.
plain rice, no dressing,
fruit salad with no ice cream.
plain cooked food, with no cream sauce, no cheese, no fat like oilve oil or butter.
No cakes, biscuits or muffins.
Just eat whole plain food with no added crap, like sugar, and butter.
Go to the green grocery part of the supermarket and only eat food from there.
Any veg- cook it plain, just boil or bake potatos, sweet potatoes pumpkins, eggplants.
boil lightly veg like- broccoli, cauliflour, peas, corn, green beans, carrots, kale, collards, spinach.
Drain and add salt pepper , some herbs, some minced garlic, lemon juice, and soysauce or ketchup. And eat this veg with brown rice. Add mustard, low fat dressing, curry powder, any kind of seasining to make it good.
Food will not make you lost weight, you just can’t cook with cream butter oil or any of that junk.
Only a bit, and if you simply can’t do wthout cooking in oil, then fine, use olive oil or any good oil, but don’t go for the creamy sauce.
SOups are filling and good too./
Boil potatos, addsome garlic in the cooking water and a stock cube. Add cabbage towards the end and some leeks.
When potatos are cooked, blend the whole lot in a blender, add salt and pepper and low fat plain yoghurt and herbs like rosemary and oragano- strong herbs.
It makes a lovely soup.
Canned chickpeas in a curry soup- add the chickeans to a pan with a litle bit of oil, some garlic cloves and chopped onion.
Add curry powder and simmer with one cup of good broth, covered, til the onions are cooked and starting to caramelise.
Serve with plain rice.
