As the saying goes, weight management is 70% diet (what you eat) and 30% exercise.  Eating more nutrient dense, low calorie foods (e.g. legumes and vegetables) and less nutrient poor foods (e.g. candy and cake) is an easy way to manage your weight. But there are also two key nutrients that together help control appetite and increase that feeling of fullness: protein and fiber.

Among other benefits, protein helps to preserve muscle mass and metabolism, which can diminish on a low-calorie diet. Fiber also promotes regularity and digestive health.

These delicious recipes contain a substantial amount of protein, fiber and an array of superfoods for promoting better health and weight management. They’re also limited in simple sugars and calorie conscious.
