Keto is all the rage these days, showing great promise for quick fat loss, mental sharpness, and freedom from food.
For those looking to get or stay lean and healthy, check out my Feta Salad (targets belly fat).
Not only does this recipe fall into the Keto Diet Spectrum, with only 10 grams of carbs and 18 grams of protein, and 27 grams of fat per serving, it contains 3 secret ingredients to help with metabolism.
All found in my Feta salad recipe.
3 Secret Ingredient for weight loss
Capsaicin, compound in chili peppers that makes them spicy, has supportive evidence linking it to weight loss.
Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition reported ingestion of capsaicin or capsinoids increased energy expenditure and showed signs of increased fat oxidation.. You can check out the report here.
We all know walnuts are brain food. In fact, they even look like a brain. However, did you know eating walnuts can help reduce excess appetite and control cravings? A recent study found in Science Daily reported a first-of-its-kind document on how walnuts can help weight weight loss through appetite regulation. You can check out the study here.
Apple cider vinegar
Having good digestion is paramount to having a slim waist line. In my recent post on how to fix digestion, one of the ways we can support proper digestion is by consuming apple cider vinegar. Researchers have pointed to the acetic acid component as it has shown to lower blood sugar and insulin. Another reason to consumes 1 tsp in a little water water prior to meals.
It’s June in the Okanagan and strawberry season. Which is why strawberries are included in this Feta salad recipe. A solid health strategy is to use whatever berries or fruits are growing in your environment. So feel free to adjust through the spring and summer months.
Because, after all, the more you can eat in season and from your local environment, the closer you are to ‘aligning your biology to nature’.
