Top 5 Fast Foods Made Healthy Way That Will Promote Fat Burning & Satisfy Cravings
We all love fast foods because they just taste so good and are so satisfying to the taste buds that we crave them even more. However, the fast foods should only be consumed occassionally since they are extremely unhealthy and may become a source of deadly diseases like diabetes, cancer, and may also contribute to heart attacks. This is mainly because of the kind of oils (which are high in saturated fats) and other ingredients used in making these foods (here’s more on why fast foods are unhealthy). What if we can alter the ingredients and the style of cooking so as to make it more suitable for our health goals? In this post we explore these 5 fast foods made in a way that promotes fat burning and will also satisfy cravings.
5 Fast Foods Made Healthy Way
1. Burgers & Fries
Burgers from the fast food chains are known widely to be one of the main causes for obesity and diabetes throughout the world. Here is our recipe on how to make burgers and fries in a healthier way.
Pizzas comes at an arguable close second position after burgers and fries. But there is still something we can change when it comes to pizzas that can make them healthier to better match our health goals while also retaining the yummy taste. Check out our recipe below!
3. Fried Rice
While fried rice is mainly rice and is loaded with carbs, balancing it with appropriate amount of vegetables and proteins can make this food a healthy option. Not to forget, using the correct amount of oil, and also the kind of oil used while stir frying can do wonders to make it more suitable to match our health goals. For this recipe, we used avocado oil which is an essential source of healthy unsaturated fats. Our recipe is made with tofu as protein source. Feel free to replace tofu with your favorite meat or another kind of protein source.
4. Chicken Tikka Masala
For those who love Indian food and cannot get enough of chicken tikka masala, you’ll love this recipe. It is high in protein (of course since it has chicken) and made with minimum amount of oil. We did not use any butter for this recipe which makes it healthier but yet retains its original flavor. Chicken tikka masala is always made in 2 parts; first where you grill the marinated chicken in the oven/air fryer, and second where you make the sauce and add in the grilled chicken to the sauce to make chicken tikka masala.
5. Chicken Wings
What better than a healthy portion of chicken wings? We made this recipe keeping in mind those who are looking to gain muscle. This recipe packs in high protein so ensure that you pair it with your favorite salad to balance the high amount of protein in it. Skip bread or rice to keep the caloric intake low.
