We recommend trying these healthy vegetarian recipes for weight loss—they're delicious and packed with some of the most beneficial ingredients available. Remember, portion control is essential because too much of a good thing is still too much. Here is a list of vegetarian recipes you can try for losing belly fat.
1. Sweet Potato Soup With Lentils
Resistance starch is abundant in sweet potatoes. Resistance starches contain 1- 2 calories per gram. That's a quarter of the calories in proteins and sugar. However, they behave similarly to fibre in the body. As a result, you'll be full with fewer calories.
Lentils and pulses feed the non-inflammatory good gut bacteria. They help to heal your gut and lower insulin resistance. You should consume 2-3 servings of lentils per day. This is an excellent wholesome and healthy dinner recipe. Serve with brown rice if desired.
2. Chickpea Tikka Masala
Did you know that by starting your day with a cup of chickpeas, most people consume 200 fewer calories at their next meal (lunch)? It is because the fibre in chickpeas keeps you full and aids in the activation of the body's natural satiety hormone. This recipe is calming and soothing. Especially with a side of Bajra or Jowar millet flour roti. It's also tasty and nutritious.
3. Vegetable Khichdi
A tasty one-pot meal with grains, lentils, and vegetables. For very few calories, all food groups are covered. This meal is complete nutrition in a bowl. The beautiful part is how good it tastes. Skip the Ghee because it contains a lot of cholesterol, but otherwise, this dish is perfect.
It's a great dinner option because it's filling and stimulates the release of tryptophan, the body's natural sleep hormone. As a result, a good night's sleep is guaranteed. Make sure to include as many vegetables as possible and even a handful of leafy greens to up the nutrition.
4. Palak Tofu
This easy recipe is packed with nutrients. Leafy greens help to lower blood pressure, delay fatty acid absorption and are high in micronutrients. By using tofu instead of cottage cheese, this traditional dish is given healthy touch. As a result, there is even more nutrition and no fats or cholesterol.
5. Oats Pongal
Can we appreciate how simple this dish is while still covering all of the necessary food groups for fat loss? Because the dish lacks vegetables, pair it with a vegetable soup and a cup of fresh-cut fruits. It is better to also omit the ghee or replace it with vegan ghee.
But, aside from that, this dish is flawless. It's filling and low in calories. It also contains lentils, which are beneficial to gut health and fat loss. The oats' resistance starch is also a good addition to this meal.
6. Quinoa And Brown Rice Dosa
An excellent substitute for traditional white rice dosa. You can add this to your weekly menu because it is simple to prepare and the batter keeps well in the fridge for 2-3 days, making it an excellent option for later use. Best served with vegetable sambhar and mint chutney. Using brown rice and quinoa instead of white rice is a simple healthy substitution that you will barely notice.
