It’s Friday night, you’ve had a LOOOONNNGG week at work and the last thing you feel like is cooking. Buying dinner sounds like a great idea but you are a little worried – you have been so good all week on weight loss regime so you don’t really want to ‘blow it all’ on greasy takeaway. This week, I want to help you to make the right choices next time you want to treat yourself to takeaway.
- Kebabs (the healthy way) – Your local kebab shop can give you a great healthy, low-carb dinner by simply omitting one ingredient: the bread! A kebab plate is the perfect dinner option and you can enjoy all the makings of a ‘traditional’ kebab (even a little sauce will be ok) without the extra carbs and calories of the Lebanese bread – perfect!
- Asian – Choose a meat & vegetable stir-fry (not in a creamy curry sauce) and eat without rice / noodles. Extra carbs at night will just slow down your weight loss, so swap for an extra serving of steamed Asian greens and boost your vitamins & mineral intake. Clear Asian soup (such as Vietnamese Pho) is also a great meal, but be sure to order less noodles and more meat. If you have a Thai restaurant close by, a classic Thai Beef Salad is a great choice too. Picking up a sashimi box from a Japanese restaurant is also a fantastic option.
- Chicken – There is nothing easier than grabbing a BBQ chicken! If you haven’t got the ingredients at home, purchase a salad to go with it (preferably a green salad that is light on dressing) and be sure to not eat the skin or stuffing.
- Fish and (no) Chips– Fish and chip shops don’t just COOK battered or crumbed fish: they will often do grilled fish which is a perfect high-protein, low fat meal. Instead of chips, swap for a green salad.
