Pan-seared Halibut with White Bean Gremolata [Good Choice]
Fish is one of those foods that have no fiber, so it’s important to surround it with high fiber foods. This recipe cooks the halibut in a traditional tomato sauce with white beans - the perfect way to add in more fiber. Serve it with a large salad and you have the best slimming meal.
Recipe tip: There’s a lot of salt recommended in the recipe. Remember to salt by taste and not specifically by recommendation. As always, consider low sodium broth.
Chocolate Strawberry Bowl [Better Choice]
The beauty of this recipe is that quinoa and strawberries are warmed together. Don’t like chocolate? I admit it’s rare, but I won’t hold it against you, feel free to add a touch of whipped cream. However, remember any toppings pack sugar and. . .no fiber. Sad, I know. So keep whatever topping you chose to the minimum you can get away with. Otherwise this tasty dish makes for a perfect breakfast or sweet treat.
