Potent Foods Part IV

Pasta

The Italians had it right all along. A cup of cooked paste (without a heavy sauce) has only 155 calories and fits the description of a perfect starch-centered staple.

“Analysis at the American Institute of Baking shows pasta is rich in six minerals, including manganese, iron, phosphorus, copper, magnesium, and zinc.” (“Fat Burning Foods For Weight Loss”)

“Also be sure to consider whole wheat pastas, which are even healthier.” (“36 Fat Burning Foods You Should Know About » Flat Belly Bible”)

Sweet Potatoes

You can make a meal out of them and not worry about gaining a pound – and you sure will not walk away from the table feeling hungry. Each sweet potato has about 103 calories. (“Cliff Notes – Casey Shipp”)

Their creamy orange flesh is one of the best sources of vitamin A you can consume.

You can bake, steam, or microwave them. Or add them to casseroles, soups, and many other dishes. (“36 Fat Burning Foods You Should Know About » Flat Belly Bible”) Flavor with lemon juice or vegetable broth instead of butter.

Tomatoes

A medium tomato (2.5” diameter) has only about twenty-five calories. “These garden delights are low in fat and sodium, high in potassium and rich in fiber.” (“Anti-Wrinkle Foods”)

A survey at Harvard Medical School found that the chances of dying of cancer are lowest among people who eat tomatoes (or strawberries) every week. And do not overlook canned crushed, peeled, whole or stewed tomatoes.

They make sauces, casseroles and soups taste great while retaining their nutritional goodness and low-calorie status. Even plain old spaghetti sauce is a fatburning bargain when served over pasta, so think about introducing tomatoes into your diet. (“36 Fat Burning Foods You Should Know About » Flat Belly Bible”)

Turkey

Give thanks to those pilgrims for starting the wonderful tradition of Thanksgiving turkey. It just so happens that this health food disguised as meat is good year-round for weight control. (“Fighters Guide: Thanksgiving Workout Plan and Nutrition …”)

A four-ounce serving of roasted white meat turkey has 177 calories and dark meat has 211. “Sadly, many folks are still unaware of the versatility and flavor of ground turkey.” (“36 Fat Burning Foods You Should Know About » Flat Belly Bible”)

Anything hamburger can do, ground turkey can do at least as well, from conventional burgers to spaghetti sauce to meat loaf. Some ground turkey contains skin which slightly increases the fat content. (“36 Fat Burning Foods You Should Know About » Flat Belly Bible”) If you want to keep it really lean, opt for ground breast meat.

But since this has no added fat, you will need to add filler to make burgers or meat loaf hold together. (“36 Fat Burning Foods You Should Know About » Flat Belly Bible”)

Four ounces of ground turkey has 170 calories and nine grams of fat – about what you would find in 2.5 teaspoons of butter or margarine. Incredibly, the same amount of regular ground beef (21% fat) has 298 calories and twenty-three grams of fat. (“36 Fat Burning Foods You Should Know About » Flat Belly Bible”)

Buying turkey has become easy. It is no longer necessary to buy a whole bird unless you want to. (“QUICK WEIGHT LOSS TIPS”) Ground turkey is available fresh or frozen, as are individual parts of the bird, including drumsticks, thighs, breasts, and cutlets.

Yogurt

The non-fat variety of plain yogurt has 120 calories per cup and low-fat, 144. It delivers a lot of protein and, like any dairy food, is rich in calcium and contains zinc and riboflavin. (“What Are The Potent Foods To Eat For Your Fitness? | prCvir”)

Yogurt is handy as a breakfast food – cut a banana into it and add the cereal of your choice. You can find ways to use it in other types of cooking, to – sauces, soups, dips, toppings, stuffing’s, and spreads. (“36 Fat Burning Foods You Should Know About » Flat Belly Bible”)

“Many kitchen gadget departments even sell a simple funnel for making yogurt cheese.” (“Screw Fat”)

“Yogurt can replace heavy creams and whole milk in a wide range of dishes, saving scads of fat and calories.” (“Fat Burning Foods – Moms Who Think”) You can substitute half or all the higher fat ingredients. Be creative.

For example, combine yogurt, garlic powder, lemon juice, a dash of pepper and Worcestershire sauce and use it to top a baked potato instead of piling on fat-laden sour cream. “Supermarkets and health food stores sell a variety of yogurts, many with added fruit and sugar.” (“What Are The Potent Foods To Eat For Your Fitness? | prCvir”)

“To control calories and fat content, buy plain non-fat yogurt and add fruit yourself.” (“What Are The Potent Foods To Eat For Your Fitness? | prCvir”)

Apple butter or fruit spreads with little or no added sugar are an excellent way to turn plain yogurt into a delectable, sweet treat. (“36 Fat Burning Foods You Should Know About » Flat Belly Bible”)
