Blueberry: I got it! Why don’t you just go to Razzle’s place, he can’t avoid you if you show up!

Eyelet: Um, I don’t think that would be such a good idea. 

Blueberry: Why not?

Eyelet: Sorbet doesn’t want me to get invovled.

Blueberry: pffffft men, they have no idea what they want, you just have to do it for them. 

Eyelet: I don’t know

Blueberry: Look, you know as well as I that it’s killing Sorbet not talking to his bestie, he is just way to stubborn to be the first to break the silence between the two. That and I’m sure they are both a little more than embarrassed about what happened.

Eyelet: Maybe you’re right.

Blueberry: Darn tooting I’m right!

Best Superfoods for Weight Loss

Black beans

A cup of black beans packs a whopping 15 grams of satisfying protein and doesn’t contain any of the saturated fat found in other protein sources, like red meat. 

Try this recipe: Spiced Black Bean Hummus With Marinated Peaches

Oats

Oats are rich in fiber, so a serving can help you feel full throughout the day. Just a half cup packs 4.6 grams of Resistant Starch, a healthy carb that boosts metabolism and burns fat. 

Try this recipe: Dark Chocolate and Oat Clusters

Avocados

There’s no reason to be afraid of eating fats—as long as they’re the right fats. 

Oleic acid, a compound in avocados’ healthy monounsaturated fats (MUFAs), may trigger your body to actually quiet hunger. Stick to a quarter or a half of an avocado and watch that belly fat melt away. The creamy fruit is also packed with fiber and protein. 

Try this recipe: Avocado, Lettuce, and Tomato Sandwiches

Salmon

Lean sources of protein help you feel full without adding fat. However, 50% of women ages 18 to 50 don’t know if they get enough of this essential nutrient. 

Up your intake with salmon; it’s a leaner choice than red meat and is chock-full of MUFAs to boot. A 2001 study found that dieters eating a MUFA-rich diet lost an average of 9 pounds, while their low-fat diet counterparts gained, on average, 6. 

Try this recipe: Pan-Grilled Salmon With Pineapple Salsa

Blueberries

Best known for their anti-aging effects, blueberries, while tiny, are a powerful figure-friendly eat: A 1-cup serving sets you back only 80 calories, and helps you feel full with 4 grams of fiber. 

Try this recipe: Blueberry-Lemon Sorbet

Broccoli

Cooked or raw, this cruciferous veggie is well-known for its cancer-preventing powers, but with a punch of filling fiber in less than 30 calories a serving, it’s bound to prevent weight problems too. 

Try this recipe: Broccoli Salad With Sesame Dressing and Cashews

Brown rice

Brown rice is a heartier, fiber-packed alternative to less-than-super white rice. A half-cup serving contains 1.7 grams ofResistant Starch, a healthy carb that boosts metabolism and burns fat. 

Plus, brown rice is a low-energy-density food, meaning it’s heavy and filling but low in calories. One study found that women who ate a higher-energy-density diet gained three times as much weight over six years than women eating a low-energy-density diet. 

Try this recipe: Wild Salmon and Brown Rice Bowl

Pears

Just one pear packs 15% of your daily recommended amount of fiber. One study found that women who ate three pears a day consumed fewer calories and lost more weight than those who didn’t. Ditch the peeler though; the skin is where all that filling fiber is hiding! 

Try this recipe: Warm Pear With Cinnamon Ricotta

Wine

Resveratrol, the famed antioxidant found in grape skin, stops fat storage. Studies show that moderate wine drinkers have narrower waists and less belly fat than liquor drinkers. Downing a glass can boost your calorie burn for a good 90 minutes.

Grapefruit

Even if you changed nothing else about your diet, eating half a grapefruit before each meal may help you lose up to a pound a week! 

A compound in the tangy fruit can lower insulin, a fat-storage hormone, and that can lead to weight loss. It’s also a good source of protein, and because it’s at least 90% water, it can fill you up so you eat less. 

Try this recipe: Ginger-Citrus Fruit Salad

Kidney beans

One of several varieties of beans to make the list, red beans offer protein and fiber (more than 5 grams per serving!). Kidney beans are also rich in Resistant Starch; a ½-cup serving packs nearly 2 grams of this slimming carb. 

Try this recipe: Red Bean and Poblano Chili

Almonds

Nuts are another superfood rich in healthy fats that help you slim down. 

Almonds in particular can help you shed pounds: In one study, people who added a daily helping of the nuts to a low-cal diet lost more weight than people who followed the same diet but swapped almonds for a carb-heavy snack like crackers. 

Try this recipe: Almond-Ciabatta French Toast

Green tea

This steamy sip hydrates like water, which can help fill you up and shed pounds. Plus, the antioxidants in green tea will up your fat burn and calorie burn. One study found that five cups a day could help you lose twice as much weight, most of it around your middle. 

Try this recipe: Minty Iced Green Tea

Lentils

Lentils are a great source of satiating protein and fiber. A half-cup serving delivers 3.4 grams ofResistant Starch, a healthy carb that boosts metabolism and burns fat. 

Try this recipe: Gingery Lentil Soup

Bananas

Bananas are a slimming superfood at the heart of Health’sCarbLovers Diet. A slightly green, medium-size banana will fill you up and boost your metabolism with its 12.5 grams of Resistant Starch. Even a ripe banana still ranks high on the list of foods containing RS, with almost 5 grams. 

Try this recipe: Chocolate-Dipped Banana Bites

Eggs

Eggs get a bad rap when it comes to weight loss. But the breakfast staple is loaded with protein that will curb your appetite. One study found that overweight women who ate egg breakfasts lost twice as much weight as women who started their days with bagels. 

And don’t worry about cholesterol: The study found that egg eaters don’t have higher bad cholesterol or lower good cholesterol than bagel eaters. 

Try this recipe: Scrambled Egg Burritos

Dark chocolate

Chocolate lovers, rejoice! A nibble of dark chocolate here and there can slow down digestion so you feel full longer and eat less at your next meal. 

Dark chocolate is full of MUFAs; studies show eating a diet high in these healthy fats can rev your metabolism to burn fat and calories. It may also help by curbing cravings for salt, sweet, or fatty diet-wreckers. 

Try this recipe: Light Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Oranges

At only 59 calories, you may not expect much from an orange, but thanks to a hefty dose of fiber, it ranks highest among fruits on a list of 38 filling foods put together by Australian researchers. Feeling full can help you eat less throughout the day. 

Try this recipe: Blood Orange and Duck Confit Salad

Potatoes

True, potatoes are high in carbs, but they are three times as filling as a slice of white bread, and top all the foods on the same satiety index as oranges. Plus, potatoes are also rich in Resistant Starch, which helps your body burn fat. 

Try this recipe: Two-Potato Salad With Mustard-Chive Dressing

Pine nuts

Nut lovers don’t have to stick to almonds. These tiny bites pack the same heart-healthy fatty acids that quell hunger hormones and burn belly fat. One study found that swapping healthy unsaturated ones like those found in nuts for saturated fats helped overweight people lose weight without reducing calorie intake or upping their exercise. 

Plus, at only 95 calories for more than 80 nuts, you can enjoy them guilt free. 

Try this recipe: Sautéed Brussels Sprouts With Parmesan and Pine Nuts

White beans

One-half cup of these fiber-packed beans contains almost 4 grams of fat-blasting Resistant Starch, a healthy carb that boosts metabolism. 

Try this recipe: Ravioli With Tomatoes, White Beans, and Escarole

Cheese

Fresh goat cheese and feta contain a fatty acid that helps you feel full and burn more fat. Look for cheeses labeled “grass-fed,” as those will have the highest content of this healthy fat. 

Try this recipe: Olive–Goat Cheese Bruschetta

Low-fat milk

The same fatty acid is found in milk, and milk’s proteins can keep you feeling satisfied. The added calcium may also help; in one study, women burned more fat and calories when they had 1,000 to 1,400 milligrams of calcium per day. 

Try this recipe: Very Chocolate Milk Shake

Garbanzo beans

Also known as chickpeas, these slimming beans pack more than 2 grams of Resistant Starch per half-cup serving. They’re also a great source of fiber, protein, and healthy fats. 

Try this recipe: Pancetta and Chickpea Soup

Pearl barley

This starchy side makes a slimming complement to a low-cal meal by adding some satisfying fiber and nearly 2 grams of Resistant Starch in just a half-cup serving.

varhaus  asked:

Alright so I came across your blog and I am a bit overwhelmed – there are so many great recipes out there, and thank you so much for sharing them with us. But now I have no idea where to start, so I thought I might as well ask you: what are YOUR favorite vegan recipes, whether it be entrées, desserts or breakfasts?

I can totally see too many recipes being overwhelming and I’m always nervous it might come off as such so I appreciate you asking this. Here’s my favorite vegan entree round up. To be honest, I’ve been slacking on making my own meals since moving to Chicago (there are so many options everywhere/I’ve been lazy). These are some of my favorite past recipes that I’ve made. I hope this helps narrow it down for you. Enjoy!
