With the festive season gone and the new year beginning, everyone is looking for healthy ways to start the year, and also ways to lose any extra pounds they may have gained during the holiday season.
Fortunately, you don’t have to eat bland, tasteless food to lose weight. Instead, you can eat tasty crepes. The key is to find healthy substitutes for the ingredients such as using whole-grain flour or buckwheat flour instead of refined flour and holding off on the syrup choices.
Crepes are an exciting meal that tastes delicious, offers nutritious varieties, and helps you stay full till your next meal. They also help to avoid unnecessary snacking. Even healthy fast food restaurants are beginning to realize their popularity and have made it a point to include crepes on their menu.
Seven Healthy Crepes:
- Carob Chip Crepes
This is easy to make and loaded with nutritious ingredients. If you don’t have carob, you can use dark chocolate chips instead. Add in coconut and cinnamon for the unique flavour to enjoy a delicious meal that doesn’t add much to your daily calorie intake.
- Lentil-Zucchini Crepes
Zucchinis are rich in fibre, iron, and protein and contain zero fats, which is why these lentil-zucchini crepes make a hearty, nutritious meal any time of day. Add finely chopped onions, freshly ground pepper and sea salt for more flavour.
- Sweet Potato and Chia Seed Crepes
While sweet potatoes are a great source of fibre and Vitamin B and C, chia seeds are superfoods, rich in protein and omega-3 fatty acids. They add a nice, nutty flavour and texture to the meal. You could also use pumpkin instead of sweet potato and add cinnamon powder.
- Healthy Pumpkin Crepes
If you get a craving for pumpkin pie, make this healthy substitute instead, using whole-wheat flour and fresh pumpkin puree. This sweet, flavourful and nutritious meal is the right way to start your day. You could also add a whipped topping of your choice and have it for dessert.
- Quinoa Crepes
If you are looking to lose some weight, it helps to include quinoa, a superfood rich in fibre, protein, and antioxidants, in your diet. You could also add flavoured Greek yogurt to have a nutritious, tasty, and satisfying meal.
- Sweet Potato Crepes
Made of only two ingredients, roasted and mashed sweet potatoes and eggs, these are quite easy to make. You can make these simple and light crepes for any meal during the weekdays. Add a dash of cinnamon powder and allspice to enhance the taste.
