3 healthy recipes for weight loss

Let me start by saying, eating has always been the hardest part of weight loss for me.

When I shared this on Instagram stories I was overwhelmed by the number of people agreeing with me. Apparently, a lot of people struggle with eating as well.

I’ve been able to lose 10 lbs by just tracking what I eat, using MyFitnessPal, and swapping meals for healthier, lower-calorie options.

Another aid to weight loss is adding more physical activity to your weekly routine. Which is what I’ve been working on lately and seeing a lot of success.

Healthy Recipes for Weight Loss

I have always found that I feel the best when I do Intermittent Fasting. So I start every single morning by drinking as much water as I can. At the odd time, I’ll drink warm lemon water with salt because it’s great for detoxifying your body. But lately, I’ve been taking breaks from using lemon partly due to the acidity.

Also, I always have a morning coffee.

After my morning rituals, I will prepare my morning smoothie which is another aspect of my routine that sets me up for success during the day. This smoothie is packed with nutrients and minerals that will help keep you full and feeling good until lunch.

Turkey Lettuce Tomato Protein Wrap

I’ve been craving greens a lot these past few months. So most days I will make myself a TLT (Turkey, Lettuce, Tomato) in a protein wrap. I came across these wraps about a year ago and I’ve never looked back. These are a delicious and healthy bread substitute for people in a calorie deficit or who are looking to up their protein intake.
