If we are on a diet, eating out is one of the great challenges we face when we want to lose some weight. It is not easy to plan food if we depend on what they offer us in the cafeteria or bar on duty, and it is even worse if we have to improvise with machines or fast food outlets. Betting on healthy recipes to take away from Tupperware is the best solution, whether to go to work or wherever you play.
It is true that eating out of a lunch box requires some planning with easy to cook recipes, but it is all a matter of organizing yourself a little to acquire the habit in our routines. If we want it to help us lose a few kilos, we will have to choose healthy recipes that are nutritious and satisfying, complete while remaining light and, above all, appetizing. The goal is not only to lose weight, but also to maintain a healthy weight with long-term healthy habits.
Light salads to combine
A Tupperware classic in the ubiquitous salad, even more so if summer approaches. It is the lifeline for those who cannot heat food, but you have to watch out for proper cooling, even if it is warm salads . And remember that the dressing or sauce is almost always better to take it apart, especially in the case of salads with fresh leaves.
Very complete salads with a single dish
It is more convenient to prepare a good complete salad that is very satisfying and nutritious, so as not to have to carry several tuppers at the same time. They are also very practical and easy to make at home, combining various ingredients that we have cooked beforehand.
To avoid going over calories without realizing it, the ideal is to prioritize vegetables, accompanied by a good source of protein -egg, lean meat, fish, legumes-, some quality fats-avocado, nuts, seeds- and a serving of nutritious carbohydrates, like quinoa or some good pasta.
Satiating recipes with vegetables
One of the great advantages of high-fiber vegetables is that they are very filling, but not heavy to digest. Beyond the dishes with raw vegetables -which would rather fit into the group of salads-, we have many options to fill the tupper with tasty dishes. Vegetables in sauce, stuffed, stewed … fleeing from the boiled without grace will not seem to us that we are on a diet.
Legumes to take away all year
We’ve included some ideas for legumes salads, but we know that not everyone finds them very funny when cold. It may be true and chickpeas, lentils or beans bring out all their splendor in hot dishes and more than spoon, and there is no reason to give them up even in summer.
The good thing about dishes with substance is that they lend themselves better to cooking in advance and carrying them in a Tupperware, they can even gain in flavor . So that they are not heavy, you just have to cook the legumes to their point after a good soak, without fat and completely dispensing with the sausages. And if they tighten the temperatures, it is enough to reheat them a little, there is no need for smoke to come out of the Tupperware.
