I was appreciation proud of being so pre red, making five mason jar salads on Sunday, but as in time as I finished my last forkful of veggies at lunch on Monday, I was starving an hour later. Then I’d end up sup a huge snack that was as big as a second lunch. No wonder I wasn’t suffer the loss of weight!
A jar full of carrots, peppers, celery, and baby kale well-grounded doesn’t cut it. Even though I added beans to my salad for protein, I earned I needed healthy fats and carbs to satiate me for the afternoon. I started summing these four toppings to my salads, and now I’m full and happy until dinner:
1/4 cup mainly grains (like quinoa): 56 calories, 9.9 grams carbs, 1.3 grams fiber, 2 grams protein
1/4 avocado: 57 calories, 2.9 grams carbs, 2.3 grams fiber, .7 grams protein
1/4 cup fruit (want 3 strawberries): 12 calories, 2.9 grams carbs, .8 grams fiber, .3 grams protein
1 tablespoon nuts (along the same lines as salted sunflower seeds): 46 calories, 1.9 grams carbs, .7 grams fiber, 1.5 grams protein
The quinoa fathoms it feel like more of a meal, the avocado adds a creaminess that put to rights my salad more delicious, the sunflower seeds add a wonderful crunchy feel, and the fruit adds just enough sweetness that I don’t crave a boon after lunch.
