Many people find it hard to believe that there are tasty foods that are good for you. Some of the problem is that people are accustomed to eating foods that are high in fat and sugar. The truth is that there are foods that provide the same satisfying taste and are good for you.
Here are a few truly delicious foods that are actually healthy and burn fat too.
Eggs are delicious. They’re rich in protein and many fat burning nutrients. In fact they’re high in vitamin B12 which helps regulate and increase your metabolism. You can also make an egg in a number of ways so you never get bored.
However, if you really want to burn fat and lose weight eat egg whites. One egg white has 16 calories. A whole egg has 70. You can have four egg whites instead of one whole egg. And believe it or not but four egg whites is a really filling breakfast. Couple it with whole wheat toast and fresh fruit and you have a tremendously healthy, delicious, and fat burning breakfast.
This lean red meat is a great substitute for hamburger. It’s high in protein and incredibly delicious. You can use it to make meatballs, burgers, meatloaf, steaks, and roasts. Any way you’d cook beef you can cook bison or buffalo.
Steel Cut Oats
Oatmeal has a bad reputation. It’s no wonder. The instant or quick oats you can buy in the store lack flavor and the consistency isn’t so appealing. However, steel cut oats are really tasty. They have a delightful almost nutty flavor.
It’s high in fiber and will help you maintain an even energy level for hours. That means no mid morning cravings! Additionally, you can treat a bowl of steel cut oats like a sundae. Top it with fresh fruit, nuts and a touch of honey and you have a real breakfast treat.

Beans are also a super source of fiber. They help keep your blood sugar levels even and your digestive system flowing.

Latin cultures enjoy black beans and pinto beans. If you’re from the south then look for black eyed pea recipes like Hoppin John. And if you love soups and stews then look no further than lentil or navy bean soup.
