Any person who at least once tried to fight excess weight through self-restraints in the diet (in other words, went on a rigid diet) knows how hard and difficult it is: to refuse your favorite foods, constantly feel hunger, try to run past the shelves in the markets with forbidden foods ...

Meanwhile, there are dishes that allow you to get rid of extra pounds and centimeters, and at the same time feel completely full, and the body receives full nutrients.

Of course, we are talking about casseroles. They are suitable for diets and baby food, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For those who fast, there are lean casseroles.

Secrets of Diet Casseroles

This dish is simply created to dispel the prejudice that diet foods are tasteless. They are very tasty! There are simply certain tricks and subtleties that you need to know for those who decide to include casseroles in their diet.

The very first is calorie content often depends not on the products, but on the type of cooking. Fried foods are much calorie baked.

The second is meat. Of course, for weight loss you need to abandon all smoked meats, fatty ham, fatty meat in general. But lean meat can be safely added to casseroles. The best dietary meat is chicken.

Spice and spices will add piquancy and piquancy to diet casseroles. In addition to the traditional black pepper, you can add:

  • turmeric
  • saffron;
  • cardamom;
  • ginger;
  • coriander and others.

A few words about sugar. Find him a substitute. But if you decide to assign this mission to dried fruits - remember how many calories are in them: for example, 100 grams of raisins contains 264 kilocalories. For comparison: 263 calories in the same amount of minced pork.

If you want something sweet, make a cottage cheese casserole with apples and a little honey. Although it is slightly more caloric than dried fruits, it will need very little in order for the curd to become sweetish.

Cottage cheese as the basis: cooking casserole with cottage cheese in the oven

For diet casseroles, cottage cheese needs low-fat.

For our dish you will need:

  • 0.5 kg of cottage cheese;
  • 2 eggs;
  • half a cup of oatmeal (made from cereal using a coffee grinder);
  • one large sweet and sour apple;
  • 2 tablespoons of the most non-greasy sour cream;
  • as much honey.

Regarding honey: it is different, and counterfeit honey is also not uncommon. There are many ways to check honey for authenticity, from simple folk methods to high-precision laboratory tests. To check if sugar was added to our product, just put a little honey in a glass of weak tea. If there is no sugar in honey, the tea will darken, but remain transparent. The presence of sugar will be indicated by the clouding of the tea with the same color.

So, cook the casserole:

  1. We need a homogeneous cottage cheese without lumps, so we wipe it through a sieve twice. Then it turns out magnificent and saturated with oxygen. Passing through a meat grinder, on the contrary, makes it look like a plasticine mass.

  3. The apple needs to be washed, peeled from it, cut out the middle and cut into thin plates. By the way, apple peel does not have to be thrown away, you can eat it, it contains many useful substances, in particular, pectin. And we cut it off only because in the casserole it will become harsh.
  4. Grease the baking dish with butter, lightly sprinkle with breadcrumbs and spread the cottage cheese. Sliced ​​apple on top. The oven must be heated to 200 ° C and put the casserole there for 30 minutes.
