Despite what you’ve been told, you don’t have to subject yourself to eating bland meals just because you’re trying to lose weight. You can shed those stubborn extra pounds while still enjoying yourself, as long as you eat smart!

For anyone looking to lose belly fat, it’s important to balance a healthy diet with regular exercise to see real results. By eating a diet high in protein, and still packed with healthy fats and good carbs, you can eat your way to your goal weight.

Delicious High-Protein Slow Cooker Recipes To Make

1. Meaty Quinoa Cabbage Rolls

Lean beef and turkey are figure-friendly ingredients that satisfy your craving for a hearty meat sandwich. Adding mushrooms adds to the meaty texture, says Sharp, while cabbage leaves take the place of carbohydrate-packed bread.

This spicy slow cooker recipe is filled with protein from chicken, fiber from pumpkin and tomatoes, and healthy fats from creamy coconut milk. The spices in this dish also give it anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce bloat. We love creamy savory dishes but the result is always a bellyache and the belly fat.
