When the sun is shining outside one of the last things you want to do is be standing over a hot stove, slaving away making dinner. Big meals in hot weather are sometimes not really that appealing but then again neither is the same cold meal over and over. One of the problems for people who are dieting is that there is not enough choice available to make interesting meals. One of the best diets year round is the Dukan Diet. It is simple as it has a list of 100 safe foods that you can eat an unlimited amount of and these foods include poultry, most red meat, fish and seafood as well as a good selection of vegetables and dairy products. The fact that you can eat as many of these free foods as you like means that you won’t be going hungry any time soon.
The Dukan Diet website offers a wide range of support and best of all lots of recipes for inspiration. The best way to succeed is to plan ahead so study the list and fill your fridge and cupboards with the food you can eat. If you’re feeling organised, you can plan all your meals for the week in advance ensuring that you have the right items on your shopping list and chose meals that are quick to make on days when you know you are going to be busy.
A good idea is to marinade fish and meats the night before so the next day you simply have to grill the food and throw together a salad or mixed vegetables. The list of free vegetables includes artichoke, beetroot, carrot, cucumber, French beans, lettuce, onion, peppers, radish, spinach, tomato and bean sprouts which are all the ingredients you need to make a mega tasty and full of goodness salad. Serve the salad up with steak, chicken breast or even a mixed fish grill for a quick and filling lunch or dinner. If you prepare extra then you have a spare meal ready for lunch then next day. If you are an egg fan then there is a great recipe online for an egg based curry. There is also all the ingredients there for a stirfry – one of the quickest, healthiest and tastiest meals you can make!
