Negative calorie foods are great to be included in everyone’s diet because they are a real helper when it comes to losing some unwanted pounds. They have a very low number of calories and the best part is that the amount of calories needed for digesting them is higher. This means that the body will “attack” the fat deposits in order to obtain energy for digesting these foods. A list of negative calorie foods is mainly composed of fruits and vegetables. It might sound difficult to include them in your daily diet, but in fact it is easier than you imagine. All it takes is some willpower and you can easily find negative calorie food recipes that are delicious. There are plenty of recipes with negative calorie foods that you can try at home and they are very easy to be made even by novices in the kitchen.
Let’s take a look at a few examples of negative calorie foods and then let’s see what tasty dishes we can make with them. In what concerns fruits, we are talking about apples, pineapple, apricots, peaches, strawberries, raspberries, watermelon, cantaloupe and many others and negative calorie vegetables include cabbage, spinach, lettuce, asparagus, carrots, celery. There are of course more than just the ones I listed above. The easiest negative or low calorie recipes that you can start with are salads.
They are fun to make, they taste good and they also look pretty. Besides this, there is no other dish easier to make, they are ready in a few minutes and they allow you to be as imaginative as you please. Take whatever foods you like from the negative food list and combine them in the manner that seems most appealing to you. There are no rules, so just use your imagination. You will discover delicious recipes and you will also benefit of all the properties of fresh fruits and vegetables. Try using fruits and vegetables of various colors because the result will look better. The only thing that is forbidden in such negative calorie recipes is to use sauces that are rich in calories or mayonnaise. Try light yogurt or various salsas and you will be amazed with the result.
Don’t imagine that negative calorie food recipes only contain raw fruits and vegetables and you have to say goodbye to cooked foods. You can prepare creamy soups, like cabbage soup for instance. All you have to do is to take one cabbage, five onions, two peppers, and two tomatoes, some celery sticks, to slice them and to boil them in water until they become soft. Blend them and mix them with salt and pepper and with the remaining water. Enjoy your meal!
