If you’re looking for something vegetarian, but are worried you’ll be eating like a bunny, and will therefore be totally famished, think again. There are so many wonderful ways to use plant-based foods in place of meat and fish and still feel totally satisfied.
Take chickpeas for example. Instead of crab cakes, try out these mouthwatering chickpea cakes with a crunchy cabbage salad to complement them. The recipe yields 4 servings, so you’ll have enough for lunch the next day. One serving, which is 1/2 cup salad and 2 cakes is just 276 calories!
Forget those diets that claim you can’t have a bit of cheese and carbs and still slim down. When your craving for something comforting kicks in, try out these skinny lasagna rolls. Featuring whole grains, protein, and vegetables, these superb rolls are filled with cottage cheese for a healthy twist on the classic.
At 240 calories per serving, you can eat two and still be on the low-calorie side! The recipe makes 10 servings, so if you don’t think you’ll be able to consume more throughout the week, just freeze the rest!
With one serving coming in at just 298 calories, you’ll wonder why you hadn’t sought out a healthier meatloaf alternative sooner! This vegetarian option takes the classic for a spin with Mexican-inspired ingredients. Enjoy black beans, kidney beans, an array of spices, corn, cheese, and onions.
You and your loved one will be able to come home for a fuss-free dinner featuring leftovers the following night.
