Light On Calories, Not On Taste

Maintaining a healthy weight or losing a few pounds ultimately depends on two things — counting your calories and working out regularly. While developing a workout plan and following it religiously is only a matter of will, keeping track of your calorie intake can prove to be a tedious and overwhelming task. From a cup of frothy coffee to a small serving of potato chips, even the smallest bites can add up calories easily, making all your efforts go in vain.

Here’s a simpler and much more flexible way to overcome this problem: create a diary of skinny recipes. There are a number of food options that contain fewer calories, but are equally scrumptious as a complete homemade dinner. To help you get started, here are three quick recipes that will help you reduce your calorie intake without making you feel like you are depriving yourself.
