One important thing to think about when going through a weight loss regime: your weight is hormonal regulated. In chemical terms, all you really need to do is reduce both your fat-storing hormones and insulin intake. The key to hitting those chemical balances? Reduce your meat and dairy intake. That can be tough on the taste buds for a lot of people. But we’re here to help you out by providing some delicious foods that will also allow you to lose weight. And better yet, these five healthy recipes are 100% vegan.
Weight Loss Soup
Obviously “weight loss soup” will help you to lose weight! This soup is a great mixture of delicious fresh veggies, cooked in a tomato vegetable broth, while seasoned with dried flavored herbs. It does not require multiple steps and can be created in your Instant Pot in approximately 30 minutes.
Weight loss soup is packed with nutrients, vitamins and fiber from hearty veggies that will provide you with energy and keep you sated for hours. It’s often called “detox” soup since it helps you keep away from overindulging after the holidays.
Lemony Lentil Salad
Kale, lentil, spinach, collards, swiss chards and all the other leafy veggies are perfect ingredients for weight loss. Throw them all together to make Lemony Lentil Salad. It’s a simple meal and easy to dress up with whatever seasonal veggies you picked up at the market.
You can also mix up the taste by adding chopped hard-boiled eggs, shaved or thinly sliced fennel, crumbled feta cheese or toasted walnuts. If you’re busy all day, and looking for a super simple, super tasty, and super healthy vegan dish good for weight loss, this is what you’ve been looking for.
Spicy Red Lentil Vegan Chili
Spicy Red Lentil Vegan Chili is a fantastic dish good for weight loss. It’s full of flavor and easy to customize with your favorite veggies and toppings! If you’re fat-free vegan, feel free to leave oil out of the recipe. Vegan chili can easily be made in your instant pot.. All you need to do is prepare and place all of the ingredients in machine and, you’re done.
Eating spicy food can actually help you cut back on calories. Studies show that jalapeno, cayenne peppers and other chili ingredients contain a compound called “capsaicin”. Capsaicin has been proven to reduce your appetite and increase the fat burning process. It also releases stress hormones, which can speed up your ability to burn calories.
Mizuna Salad with Cumin-Roasted Cauliflower
If you need to lose weight, a combination of protein, fiber and low energy density makes cruciferous vegetables or brassicas, such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and brussels sprouts, the perfect food to include in your meals. The North African–inspired Mizuna Salad is absolutely delicious, and adding some cumin-roasted cauliflower will give you a double dose of healthy brassicas!
Cruciferous vegetables may not be as high in protein as animal foods or legumes, but they do contain more protein than most other vegetables. Studies also show that these veggies are anti-inflammatory, low in calories, and chock-full of nutrients that help prevent cancer.
Kimchi is a fermented cabbage dish occasionally with radish, made with a mix of salt, vinegar, garlic, chile peppers and other spices. You’ve probably already heard this dish being mentioned at restaurants due to its popularity in the Korean community. Kimchi can be a little bit difficult to make though, so go through the necessary kitchen appliances before attempting to make it.
This dish also contains capsaicin that will boost your carbohydrate metabolism which increases weight loss. It also contains probiotics, causes lower cholesterol levels, and is chalk full of vitamin A for clear vision.
