When summer comes around, people tend to be a little more in-tune with their weight and overall health. Beach season pushes most people to eat well and consider daily calorie intake. This summer, corporate catering services can help shed a few unwanted pounds by offering healthy yet filling lunches that will give you energy without weighing you down. With catered lunches that provide healthy options like these, losing those few extra pounds will be easy!
You know by now that eating salads is an excellent way to stay on top of your weight. When choosing a salad, however, you may feel inundated with not only topping options but greens options as well. While lettuces like romaine and iceberg make for great salad bases, what will really help you lose weight are dark, leafy greens. When checking out the salad options, look for spinach or mixed greens. The classic spinach salad comes with traditional toppings that are great for weight-loss as well.
Salmon is one of the healthiest protein options you have. When it comes to weight-loss, low-carb and high-protein diets are the best way to stay lean. Fish, in general, supplies our bodies with a significant amount of iodine, a nutrient that aids in the proper function of the thyroid. Your thyroid is important to your weight-loss because it is directly connected to your metabolism. Salmon is also packed with Omega-3 fats which reduce inflammation and help with troubles with obesity and metabolic disease. Broiled salmon served by a corporate catering service would serve as the ideal lunch to help you lose some weight before hitting the beach.
Speaking of salmon and salads, neither of these entrees is complete without some cruciferous vegetables. Cruciferous sounds like an intimidatingly long word, but all it refers to are plants that are in the cabbage family such as broccoli, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and, of course, cabbage. All of these nutrient-dense veggies are also rich in fiber. These vegetables are also high in protein compared to most other vegetables, which is great for your low-carb, high-protein summer diet.
