switching to Low calories Food Alternatives can be fun

Hi People!

This blog I am going to tell you few low calorie alternatives to begin with in your lifestyle. It’s been always hard to switch to a diet compromising with your regular routine which contains not only high calories but also has no nutritious value.

Starting on to getting back to healthy eating, here is a packed heavy breakfast which is always a good thing to start your day.

Ingredients

Eggs- 2

Bell Peppers- (1/4 cup , chopped, mixture of green and yellow)

Multigrain wheat brown bread (2)

Red bell pepper (1/4 cup, chopped)

Ice berg lettuce – (1/2 cup, shredded)

American Garden Low fat, Low Calorie Mayonnaise (1 tbsp)

Pineapple ( 1/2 cup , chunks)

Ginger Garlic paste (1 tsp)

Salt – (1/4 tsp)

Chilly Powder (1/4 tsp)

To prepare

Add 2 eggs and 1/4 cup of mixed green and yellow bell peppers. Add 1/4 tsp salt and chilly powder. Heat the nonstick pan for a min and add the mixture and heat it for 3 mins , flip it and heat it for 3 more mins.

Add 1/4 cup shredded Iceberg lettuce and 1/4 cup shredded red bell peppers, add 1 tbsp low fat , low calorie mayonnaise, 1 tsp ginger garlic paste and 1/4 tsp salt and mix it.

Pineapple is packed with vitamin C and contains an enzyme called bromelain that reduces inflammation of the gut, boosts immune function, and stimulates protein digestion. Adding them can also help you increasing good calories in your breakfast which will keep you full for a long time, hence avoiding from eating junks out of hunger.

Why choose Multigrain Wheat brown Bread instead of Regular bread?

Ps : I found this one on the net since I forgot to take the picture from mine!

Multigrain wheat brown bread consist wheat as it major content, broken wheat flakes. Always check for the content/ ingredients in the package. Sometimes brown bread might just contain refined flour with added colours.

A good multigrain wheat bread must be made of 100% whole wheat/whole grain. They have good amount of dietary fiber around 1.9g in 1 slice of a bread while a regular refined flour bread has no source of nutrition value and contain less than 0.8g of dietary fiber. Hence Multigrain bread can keep you full for a longer period of time and have lesser calories in per serving of the bread. While the regular refined flour bread has more calories which can lead to weight gain, it can also slow down your digestion and cause discomfort.

On taste part of it, I love multigrain wheat bread much better than the regular pale taste of the refined flour bread.

Why American Garden Lite Mayonnaise

We all love mayonnaise but at the same time we do it consist of lot of calories and hence switching to low fat , low calorie mayonnaise can be a good alternative to change your lifestyle and eat clean.

While the regular mayonnaise consist of 94 calories in 1 tbsp with 10g of total fat , Lite Mayonnaise consist of just 45 calories with 4.5g of total fat, which is a much better option.

It definitely does not taste as regular mayonnaise but 1 tsp of ginger garlic can save the day with almost similar taste that of the regular mayo.

You can always choose alternatives with lower calories while you are on the phase of changing your lifestyle gradually because strict diet are not sustainable and getting back to old routines are more easier after binge eating.
