3 EASY, Quick & Delish Recipes To Prep You For That Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny… Red Bikini
By SD Wentworth
1) Honey Glazed Salmon.
Salmon is a superfood, packed full of omega 3 fatty acids that help to boost your metabolism, which slims the waistline. Also, eating salmon can give your skin & hair necessary proteins to help them grow stronger, be healthier, and look shinier, as well as feel softer. Yay for Salmon!
2) Pita & Hummus Tacos.
Using 100% whole wheat pita bread instead of tortilla shells gives you tons of fibre (which helps cleanse your internal system) while helping you feel fuller for a whole lot longer. Using hummus insteas of condiments and in conjunction with salsa not only adds tons of flavor, but it makes leaving out the seasoned chicken/beef/carnitas taste just as dynamic as if you included the meats to begin with. Top with thin slices of avocado and whatever veggies you like, and voilà! Delicious and bikini friendly tacos.
3. Grilled Balsamic Eggplant with Pine Nuts & Feta.
Grilled eggplant is soft and gives of a slightly sweetened taste. Combined with the deep sweet of healthy 100% balsamic dressing, the earthy crunch of toasted pine nuts, and the cooling bite of feta cheese and you’ll have a waistline friendly midday lunch.
All of these meal ideas are tasty, filling, and 100% bikini friendly, making sure that you never ever starve yourself as you journey into fitting into that itsy bitsy black bikini (or red..no judgements here). Chow down!
