We all crave for delicious food especially when we are on a diet.
This is very normal because we have been limiting our food intake and restricting ourselves from possible unhealthy cravings. The thing is, if we continue to do that, we might actually end up quitting on our diet sooner that we know it.
The reason is because we have been making it too hard on ourselves and just can’t take it any longer! (we’re all guilty of that, it’s ok)
The best way to go on a diet and stay on it, is to not limit your food intake, instead you should switch up the food you eat for more healthier options that are still tasty! You can also incorporate some of your cravings once in a while. It’s definitely okay to have a few cheat days!
So here are some tasty food to enjoy while on a diet:
1. Tofu Pasta
Begin by slicing the ingredients you’d like to put in the pasta e.g., mushrooms, tomatoes and parsley.
Then wash the pasta that was made of tofu.
With oil in the pan, begin stir frying garlic, tomato sauce and the other ingredients you want to add in your pasta like the mushrooms and maybe some prawns.
Then add in the pasta.
Garnish it with cheese, pepper and parsley. (you can skip the cheese if you prefer)
2. Healthy Sandwich
Begin slicing the chicken breast (it’s lean protein so it’s great for your diet)
Slice the veggies you want to put in your sandwich like tomatoes and onions.
Fry an egg.
Spread wholegrain mustard, chilli mayo sauce over the bread.

Wrap it with parchment paper and cut with a bread knife.(makes it clean to cut and store)
