If you have been following me for anytime, you know I am a big proponent of eating lots of veggies!
If you want to make a fat burning diet easy, simply focus on eating veggies and protein first at every meal. When you get enough veggies and protien you will feel fuller, eat less, and have a better fat burning hormone response in your body. Eating enough vegetables (and protien) are key for a fat burning diet, balanced hormones, and healthy body.
Here are 2 yummy veggie recipes: use in place of potatoes and pasta!
