I know what you’re thinking: “But pasta makes you fat!” That’s not entirely true. Sure, if you eat loads of it, it’s not great for a fat burning diet, but go with me on this one.
You can’t have just any pasta, though. The best belly fat burning diets include a specific type. This one type of pasta makes for one of the best stomach fat burning foods available.
Salivating yet? Here’s the recipe:
1. 8 oz. of multigrain pasta (like Trader Joe’s Multigrain w/Flax)
2. 1 bag organic frozen broccoli
3. 1/2 bag organic frozen peas
4. 2 boneless chicken breasts (I use organic free-range)
5. 8 oz. tomato sauce (I use Trader Joe’s sauces made from organic plum tomatoes)
6. Additional Italian seasoning if desired
Bring water to a boil then reduce to medium high heat. Throw the pasta in first for about 5 minutes, then follow with the frozen veggies for another 5 minutes or so.
Finally add, the chicken breast (which you will have precooked), drain the water, and stir in the tomato sauce.
This will get you about 4 servings, with each serving providing about:
36 grams protein
42 grams carbs
8 grams fat
11 grams fiber
The only problem with this meal is it could use a bit more fat! So sometimes I’ll add a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil after it’s finished cooking. (to the whole amount, not per serving!)
Multigrain pasta is one of the better belly fat burning foods. The extra fiber makes you feel fuller, and less likely to eat more. This recipe is also chock-full of protein, which is the most important belly fat burner.
Throwing in good doses of other great foods to lose belly fat such as green veggies and chicken, and you have a great meal that takes only about 10 minutes to whip up. 10 minutes to help you achieve the best calorie burn that you can? That’s a pretty good meal. Thanks to Rob Poulos for this great recipe.
