4 Anti-Inflammatory Recipes That Will Help You Lose Weight Fast, According To Nutritionists

What meal is better for your body: a home-cooked dinner or leftovers from take-out a few nights ago? We feel 99% confident that anything made in your kitchen is going to help your weight loss goals. Ordering food means you can’t control the amount of carbs, salt, fats and processed ingredients. Cooking at home allows you to cut back on the bad stuff and add more anti-inflammatory ingredients. Processed foods encourage your body to retain fat instead of burning it. Anti-inflammatory have antioxidants to reverse this activity and directly inhibit inflammation. These simple recipes will get your started.

Green Tea Latte Overnight Oats, Mindy Body Green

Do you need incentive to wake up? Same. Oatmeal has been shown over and over to offer protein, fiber and good carbs. That’s a spectacular way to start the say. But oatmeal can get boooring. This recipe for overnight oats is pretty radical: it has spinach. Don’t stop reading! If you’re not into leafy greens this is a food way to get the anti-inflammatory effects without eating salad after salad after salad. Green tea, chia seeds and almond milk round out the anti-inflammatory ingredients.

Egg Muffin Cups, Show Me The Yummy

We love to cook meals once and eat them for days. These eggs cups from Show Me The Yummy are the perfect fit. Prep a muffin tin with some no-stick spray. Next dream up your favorite veggie combo or just riffle through the fridge and see what you have hanging around. Today it might be kale, chickpeas, barley, broccoli, and sweet potato. Tomorrow it’s spinach with cheddar cheese, mushrooms and dried tomatoes. Sautee the ingredients in a large pan and put it aside. Whisk up a load of anti-inflammatory, fat burning eggs in a large bowl and pour the veggies in. This way you can make sure everything is evenly distributed when you fill the muffin pan. Keep extras in the fridge. An egg muffin and an apple make a nice afternoon snack.

Mediterranean Chickpea Tuna Salad, The Gourmet RD

There is no one right way to make this salad. The chickpeas and tuna won’t mind if you stray from the recipe – just make sure they remain. “Chickpeas are pulses, plant-based proteins that fill you up, help keep you regular and even help reduce cholesterol thanks to soluble fiber,” says Rachel Swanson, a RDN at Lifespan Medicine. Research shows that people who eat pulses can experience significant weight loss even if they don’t stick to a diet of restricted calories. The canned tuna delivers anti-inflammatory omega-3s and a hearty amount of protein. Pssst...add a few slices of red onions or a pickle cut into matchsticks.

Avocado And Egg Sandwich, The Awesome Green

You need another egg recipe because eggs are just that healthy and that versatile. This sandwich is simple but feels really fancy. Maybe it’s the radishes? Maybe it’s the scallions? Both certainly add big flavor to the soft-boiled eggs that are sliced and placed on avocado that has been dressed with lime. Avocados are ah-mazing! First off they’re creamy and delish. Second, they’re loaded with potassium, magnesium and heart-healthy fats. “Avocados help decrease your appetite by making you feel fuller for longer,” says Michelle Alley, a nutritionist at iFit. One anti-inflammatory fruit has 13 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein.
