13+1 Light recipes to give a warm welcome to Summer!

Summer is on its way! The sun is shining, vacation time is peeking from around the corner, all winter clothes are getting packed away and of course we are all surfing the internet for light recipes!

Even those of us who do not want to make a drastic change in their diet and don’t necessarily want to follow any specific diet to help us lose weight… We all like and try to add some light meals in our diet that are quick and easy to make.

The truth is that the way we cook plays a big role in this process. We have to try to reduce our oil intake, try to measure the amount added, avoid fried foods, add more fish in to our weekly diet plan and generally try to choose the ingredients added, more carefully. We also need to watch snacking and try to consume lots and lots of salads. With just a little imagination and creativity, we can make them tastier and more irresistible than ever!

I would like to stress the word “imagination” here, because this is something that is needed when all of our nutritional needs have to be combined and planned according to our daily routines. A little juggling act if you will!

What I usually do, is to save recipes that I find interesting so that I can pick and choose at any time, according to how much time I have or what I am in the mood to eat! I find that this really helps. That’s why I thought I could offer some ideas, to help create your own “menu” full of light recipes and pick the one you want, whenever you want.
