Winter Weight Loss
We all know how easy it is to pack on the pounds in the winter time! Salads, smoothies, and fresh juices don’t usually sound appealing on a cold winter day. In turn, we end up reaching for comfort foods which are typically high in fat and carbs; next thing we know, we’re up 10lbs! Ugh!!
One thing that always gets me through the winter months is adding yummy warm veggies to all my dishes…even salad! I love my cooked veggies with salad, it’s just a simple change but it makes a world of difference!!
Today I had some red potatoes and broccoli on hand so decided to steam them up in a pot of salted water, slice them, and serve them over a lovely salad. It totally hit the spot!!
My salad consisted of mixed greens: romaine, arugula, and baby swiss chard, shredded carrots, avocado, diced orange bell pepper, sliced cherry tomatoes, a sprinkling of nutritional flakesGarlic Expressions salad dressing (it’s my fave!).
Then I topped it with my piping hot boiled potatoes and steamed broccoli. So good!! I know it seems like such a small change but it really does make a world of difference to add cooked vegetables to your salads!! IT lightly wilts the greens and makes the salad much more hearty, warming, and comforting. Another variation that I love is to add a drizzle of my pistachio pesto and these roasted veggies.
Maintaining winter weight loss can be easy, delicious, and fun! Try it and then let me know what your favorite variations are!!
