There are nutritional benefits to pairing low-fat beans and legumes with complex carbohydrates like brown rice or whole wheat pasta.  Combining those two, especially when adding tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, or carrots, can reap fat-blasting benefits.  Add spinach, kale or broccoli to increase the benefits of the leafy green veggies.  You can ‘spice’ it up with red pepper flakes, curry powder, or garlic.

Wednesday 8/04/10 Food Diary:

Breakfast-

1/2 cup egg whites, 1/8 cup brocolli, 1 cup spinach  (70 cal)

 1 weight watchers whole wheat english muffin, 1 tbls Polander all fruit (110 cal)

A.M.  Snack-

1 cup pasturized egg whites,1/2 scoop whey protein shake mix (175 cal)

Lunch-

1 tbls hummus, 1 whole wheat tortilla, 6 asparagus (270 cal)

grapefruit (40 cal)

 P.M. Snack-

Dinner-

4 oz Mahi mahi (100 cal)

These ideas are great because you can throw together for an inexpensive (compared to carry out), nutritious lunch, or a quick fix dinner.  I suggest cooking the pasta al dente, so it doesn’t get mushy.

If you take it for lunch, it will help keep your blood sugar levels even all afternoon so you don’t have that afternoon crash, and at dinner the carbs will help fill you up so you can avoid late night binging.

Brown rice has many health benefits, particularly when compared to white rice. It is also more prone to going rancid, since it is high in natural fats and oils.
