5 Fab Foods to Help You Stay on Track

On my never ending mission to be in shape I find and read many health articles and blogs. I think it is interesting the differing sciences that can figure out how each body works and preform at its best. There are so many schools of thought and everyone seems to think they have the best plan. It’s difficult for me to know who is the “right one”. I prefer articles that gear it’s help with the use of science. After reading a few articles on what foods help keep your weight loss efforts in line I tried to get them all into one list using all of the information I read but “trimmed the fat” a bit.

1. Replace carbohydrates from sugar and refined grains with “good carbs” from fruits and vegetables. Orang-hued foods were found to be the most effective substitutes. Being that fruits and vegetables are high in fiber, they keep you full longer, high levels of antioxidants like vitamin C and beta-carotene fend off the fat. You can get a good amount of beta-carotene from carrots, cantaloupe, squash and peaches.

2.About 25 percent of your daily calories should come from protein, but you should choose lean sources like poultry, fish, low-fat yogurt, and fat-free milk to keep your calories down. Protein helps to you boost your energy, aiding in calorie burning.

3.
Selenium can lower rates of abdominal obesity. Several foods contain selenium, so it’s difficult to know if you’re getting the recommended 55mcg per day. The best sources are nuts, whole grains, poultry and seafood. Foods rich in vitamin E, like nuts and seeds, will increase the effectiveness of selenium in the body. Natural Raw Organic Cashews

4.    Several studies suggest that alcohol is fine in small amounts, protects against weight gain. Data reviewed have suggested one 4-ounce glass of wine as the best bet. While one glass has great health benefits, having more is just going to add inches to your waistline.

5.

Eating good fats like monounsaturated and omega-3s make it easier to stay slim, these fats are found in fish, nuts, olive oil, & avocados examples of bad fats, like saturated and trans are found in butter, shortening, pre-packaged cakes and cookies.

Italian Pasta Salad

Ingredients:
1 box whole wheat pasta (your favorite shape)
1 small can organic sliced ripe black olives
1/4 cup organic green pepper sliced
1/4 cup organic red bell pepper sliced
1/4 cup organic red onion, diced chopped
1/4 cup organic carrot chopped
1 oz. turkey pepperoni (optional)
1/4 cup organic uncooked broccoli chopped
1/4 cup organic uncooked cauliflower
1 tsp organic black pepper
1 tsp organic hot red pepper
1 tsp organic oregano
1 tsp organic parsley
1 tsp organic garlic powder
1 tsp organic basil
Organic White Balsamic Vinegar
Grated Parmesan Cheese
Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Directions:
Begin by boiling the pasta according to the boxes instructions. While the pasta cooks start chopping your peppers, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, olives & turkey pepperoni. After chopping all vegetables and pepperoni place in a large bowl. By this time the pasta should be ready to drain. Make sure the pasta is drained completely, then add the pasta to the bowl and mix. You can add some olive oil at this time to make everything mix smoothly. Also add a small amount of the vinegar as well so the taste has time to set in.
Now begin to add the basil, parsley, garlic powder, oregano, hot red pepper & black pepper. Mix thoroughly and add a little more olive oil and more vinegar. You don’t want to add too much vinegar because it can make the salad soggy while you let it sit and cool. You can always add more vinegar later to give it more taste. Place in refrigerator and let cool for 30 minutes minimum. When you are ready to serve you can add more vinegar if you need to add more for taste. Then mix in the parmesan cheese and sprinkle some on the top before serving.
