Is there a dish that is healthy, complete, satiating and slimming? Yes, the vegetable creams. They are the ideal recipe so that you can gradually lose weight, without going hungry and getting all the nutrients your body needs so you do not have any deficits.
In this article we share some suggestions specifically focused on helping you lose weight, thanks to the properties of its ingredients.
Cream of pumpkin and cinnamon
This delicious cream, with the curious and excellent combination of its ingredients, is even a good dish to surprise the guests.
The pumpkin has the necessary qualities to be included in any diet. It is very satiating, thanks to its water and fiber content, but at the same time it is low in calories. It is also purifying and diuretic , so it helps us eliminate toxins and excess fluids that we can accumulate.
On the other hand, its consistent texture allows to make a very creamy and consistent texture recipe, as if we had included potatoes.
We recommend choosing Ceylon cinnamon, which is the most therapeutic and aromatic.
Cream of zucchini and wakame
This cream is a soft and very digestive recipe, ideal to take at night at .
Zucchini only has 17 calories per 100 grams, so it is excellent to include it in our diet habitually. It also increases metabolism and contributes to the elimination of accumulated fats in our body.
Some people, when they prepare zucchini cream, add cheese to make it creamier, since zucchini contains a lot of water, but in this recipe we propose a lighter option. Substitute the cheese for the wakame seaweed , which also has slimming and diuretic properties and also gives creaminess and cream flavor.
Leek and ginger cream
Leek cream is a delicious dish, thanks to its characteristic flavor, and it is also rich in water, fiber and potassium, a mineral that helps us fight the retention of liquids and compensate for excess salt. In addition, leek is one of the vegetables with the lowest carbohydrate content, making it the best option to take at night.
The touch that ginger brings, besides enhancing the flavor of the recipe, helps us to consume a much more therapeutic cream, since this spice helps to eliminate fats and increases metabolism, so we will have a greater energy expenditure.
Cream of pea and cayenne
The pea is the most digestive legume and gives us protein, which helps us maintain muscle mass and lose weight especially in the area of the waist. In addition, the pea regulates our blood sugar levels and contains a lot of fiber , so this is a very satisfying cream that we can drink at any time of the day.
Cayenne, on the other hand, will enhance the flavor of this dish and also help to increase our metabolism and better digest fats. We must add a little amount of cayenne, especially the first few times, to get used to our body to spicy.
This cream is ideal for cold days or cold people.
Cream of mushrooms and oats
When it is a time of mushrooms or we have the opportunity to get them, we can take advantage of them to make an exquisite cream. Mushrooms have a high protein content, and are also a very healthy and natural food.
Oatmeal is a very nutritious food but also has a lot of fiber, so we recommend it when we also suffer from constipation or digestive problems.
We recommend consuming this cream in the food better than in the dinner, since it is very energetic, and we can flavor it with a touch of smoked paprika.
