1. Salmon Sandwich
Pan-seared salmon with walnut-and-spinach pesto on whole-grain roll with radicchio.
Salmon is a great source of mood-boosting omega-3 DHA fatty acids, and spinach is full of magnesium, which has a relaxing effect and helps lower blood pressure. walnuts are a natural source of melatonin that can help you sleep better.
2. Mediterranean Detox Salad
Watercress, artichokes, celery, red onion, and feta tossed with cucumber vinaigrette.
Cukes are loaded with vitamin C and caffeic acid, which combats swelling. Watercress and artichokes both have diuretic properties to help you beat the bloat, and artichokes are also a natural source of the soluble fiber inulin. The sodium and potassium in celery help bring your fluids back into balance.
3. Libido-Boosting Stir-Fry
Skirt steak stir-fried with bell peppers, asparagus, ginger, soy sauce, lime juice, and brown rice, and topped with cashews.
Asparagus will provide you with the vitamin E, helping your body pump out estrogen and testosterone. While zinc in beef will give you a testosterone boost, which is key to a healthy female libido. Cashews have long been considered a natural aphrodisiac.
4. Blackberry-Banana Slim-Down Smoothie
Banana and blackberries blended with light coconut milk, low-fat yogurt, and a touch of lemon zest and honey.
Bananas contain resistant starch (RS), a carb that acts like fiber and also helps you feel full and slim down. The oil in coconut fruit can help you shed those extra belly fat, while yogurt is a great source of CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), a fatty acid that fights off fat.
