When it comes to dinner, you aren’t just feeding yourself, but your family as well. If you are trying to lose weight, this can be difficult because you don’t want to make two separate meals. Luckily, there are some healthy and delicious dinners that your family will love, but that also burn more fat and help you to stay on track.
Salmon, Veggies, and Nuts
Salmon is one of the best types of protein you can eat. It is easy to cook, low in fat and calories, and delicious for everyone in the family. It will be light enough for you and help to burn fat, but your family will enjoy the delicious maple flavor. You can use maple syrup and vinegar plus a little Dijon mustard to make a marinade for the salmon that really brings out its flavors. Combine this salmon with your choice of veggies, whether you go with green beans and mushrooms, broccoli and cauliflower medley, or a side salad. Top the salad with some chopped walnuts and almonds for crunch and added nutrients.
White Bean Chili
The reason this is a good dinner is because your family gets to enjoy chili with their own side, like their favorite type of rolls, while you get something hearty and nutritious. The white bean chili doesn’t use any meat in it unless you want to add some turkey or chicken, which makes it on the lighter side. It contains beans, lentils, and spices that burn more fat, like the white beans, quinoa, and some turmeric and ginger in there. You can add in any other spices or veggies that you want. Serve it alone or with a side salad.
If you are looking for a high-protein dinner that is going to fill you up, but also make your family happy, try making some turkey burgers. Ground turkey when using the right seasonings, doesn’t take that different from beef. Your spouse and kids probably won’t even miss the beef! However, if you want lighter burgers but keep some of that beef flavor in, try doing half turkey and half beef. Combine it together and place them on a skillet or grill them up. Skip the cheese and mayonnaise, and instead use mustard which burns fat, along with plenty of vegetables and lettuce on the burger. Serve it with any healthy side dish your family will enjoy.
