Gherkins – 10 Slimming foods to eat every day
With the Christmas festivities and indulgences over, and the focus now being on “new year, new me” we thought we’d start the working year with some foods that might help dieters. This comes from a Harper’s Bazaar article. We’ve taken some pics and added a little information about each food. So far we’ve featured avocado, which can suppress hunger and yesterday, artichokes, which may help with slimming, tasty chocolate which can make you slimmer if eaten regularly and water which can help dieters lose 5% of body weight. We’ve also looked at high protein, high-fibre almond butter, an alternative to peanut butter (which be be suitable for allergy sufferers) and then yesterday, cottage cheese – high in calcium and casein protein and low in fat and cost!
Gherkins, today’s slimming food, are wonderful because they satisfy cravings and are so low in calories. You may burn more calories digesting them than by eating them, according to the article. Gherkins are also an excellent source of the trace mineral, silica. Silica contributes to the strength of muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone. Gherkins also provide vitamin K, which aids digestion. Cheap, and only cost around 5 calories… what you waiting for?
