If you're a personal chef to a busy family, it's important to make filling meals. When mom, dad and their kids are always on the go, it's essential that they have the right nourishment. Recently, personal chef and author Amie Valpone shared some important cooking tips with Glamour. Take a look at three super-foods that can keep your clients full:
- Almonds: "The healthy fats and protein content of almonds make them highly satiating," writes Valpone. "Almonds can actually help with weight loss, lowering cholesterol, and are rich in calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and Vitamin E. They have zero carbohydrates and contain six grams of protein in one ounce, not to mention a hefty three grams of dietary fiber." If you or your clients are looking for an in-between meal snack, we suggest mixing a handful of almonds with dried cranberries.
- Avocados: Now that the weather is warming up, it's the perfect season to add fresh avocados into your meals! These fruits are full of healthy fats that will keep your clients full. Toss them into salads, smoothies or fajitas. They even make great dairy-substitutes in many recipes.
- Eggs: Eggs are great because they can be consumed for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Plus, their filled with tons of vitamins and are an excellent source of proteins. Poach eggs for a brunch, make hard boiled eggs as a snack or whip up some tasty egg salads for on-the-go lunches.
