Getting rid of belly fat by: Club.Cooking

Summer may seem a long way away, but if you don’t start preparing for that summer body now, you’ll end up covering your fat with layers in the scorching heat. Of course, it is easier to chug down all the easy food take-outs like cheeseburgers, fries, tacos and what not. But honestly speaking, how badly is it affecting your already grown belly and your summer body goals?

How about giving your body a break from these unhealthy calories for once and try this how long to boil chicken recipe? You’ll know how even one healthy meal a day will not only give your body the care it longed desired but lighten up your mood, make you feel more energetic and give your skin that glow!

But you cannot just rely on the how long to boil chicken to give you your summer body. Here is a step by step guide of what you exactly need to do!

- Step Outside

Even if you stick to a healthy diet plan, it is not possible for your body to decrease fat without burning your food intake. So, step outside, hit the gym, or your favorite sports and have a walk in the morning sunlight (morning means before 12 for all the healthy vitamin D, after 12, the sun will just give you the tan you cannot get rid of).

- Stock up on cheap, healthy snacks

Lays, soft drinks and cookies are anyone’s best friend! And why wouldn’t they be? Easily available, cheap! But not at all a good influence on your lifestyle. Try buying peanuts, yogurt with mixed berries, fresh juices, dark chocolates or fruits. This will not only decrease the amount on your bill but also the amount of the fat on your belly. You can even use healthy rolls as a substitute, like this shrimp tempura roll. If you have these stocked up for weeks, you can always avoid the temptation of getting lays and coke for yourself.

- The best food diet plan to help get rid of belly fat

There isn’t one magic food which will melt your belly fat overnight. Studies show that a combination of certain foods has special- belly-fat-burning benefits and toxins which gives you a fast metabolism and reduces your fat naturally in a healthy way. These include peanuts, egg whites, green-tea, chickpeas, artichoke, whole grains, and avocado. Basically, anything and everything which is rich in nutrients, proteins and lacks processed carbs. You can also include this keto zucchini bread in your meal plan if you’re craving healthy fiber and grains.

- Foods to avoid to help lose belly fat naturally over four weeks

Certain foods, even if combined with the right nutritious ingredients and vegetables can cause harm to our blood flow, body and skin. These include the use of alcohol, sugar, sauces like ketchup, mayonnaise, and salad dressings which are full of creams and sugar content. These are also called inflammatory foods which often makes your metabolism complicated and doesn’t agree with your body making you feel bloated and your stomach to flare up. Hence this leads to your body to store the contents as fat instead of digesting them.

- Processed foods

Processed foods are a definite no! These foods have high sugar content, fats, and carbs to make the food’s frozen life longer and taste good. This makes it a perfect combination to increase your belly fat making it a complicated food for your stomach to digest.

Basically, getting rid of belly fat isn’t just about fitting in your skinny jeans, but exercises and healthy food also help improve your mood swings, irritations, and fruits help with your skin! It is also the best way to prevent future heart and diabetic diseases.

Fall recipes: Caramel coffee and tea

I'm not sure about you, but I enjoy my coffee in the morning! I like to try different flavored coffees and creamers. You will see a variety of posts here about my coffee! 

Recently, I found something I really like!
I call it caramel coffee:

  • Prepare your coffee to brew as usual.
  • Squeeze caramel ice cream topping into the bottom of the empty pot. I would say about 1/3 cup.
  • Brew your coffee into the pot with the caramel.
  • When it is finished brewing, stir with a wooden spoon and enjoy!

It’s so easy, yet it adds such a nice flavor to the coffee. I add French vanilla creamer to my caramel coffee.

Then, this happened.....
I had a blog follower ask me about trying the caramel syrup in tea instead of coffee. So, I tried it! I put some water in my teapot, turned on the stove until it boiled, then poured the hot water over my green tea with lemon tea bag. After I added my nut milk, I added a teaspoon of the caramel ice cream topping. And to my surprise, it tastes very good! I normally drink my tea plain, with no sweetener.

If you are brewing your coffee or tea with a single serve coffee maker, add a tablespoon of caramel topping to your mug prior to brewing. If you like it sweeter, add two!
