Some products provide faster and longer satiety. Rich in protein that takes a long time to digest and fiber that swells when it comes into contact with water in the stomach, they don’t cause blood sugar spikes that are sources of food cravings. They are precious allies for those who constantly complain about hunger.
Satiety is the feeling of not being hungry. You may have noticed that some products are more gifted than others in this regard. We’ll tell you which ones and how to prepare them to make the most of their satiating effect.
Apple : we prefer it to be organic to crunch it with the skin, part rich in fiber and antioxidants. Raw, it takes longer to bite into, and its unsoftened fibers are more clingy.
Oat bran :To combat morning hunger, add a spoonful to yogurt, compote or smoothies. You can add it to bread dough, pancakes, soups, sauces… You drink water at the same time to enhance its effect.
agar-agar : againstCalculate an average of 1 level teaspoon of agar powder per 50 ml of liquid, bring to a boil for 2 minutes, then let cool to set. Warning: Large doses may have a laxative effect.
Chicken breast :aboutn prefers light but flavorful dishes (en papillote, in a well-seasoned broth). Served with a drop of good oil (olive, walnut).
Almond: for those who tend to nibble and can’t resist the call of a distributor or bakery, it’s ideal to have a handful (20-30g) of almonds with you at all times. Top with fresh fruit if necessary.
Buckwheat: ohn Don’t cook it too long (about ten minutes) to keep it crispy. It is eaten in a salad (for example, with shrimp and mushrooms), as a side dish for soup, or with green vegetables. Its gluten-free flour makes delicious cookies and biscuits.
Lenses: fin a salad (like haddock and diced apples) or hot as a side dish. With rice and green vegetables, they form a vegetarian dish that is both balanced and not overeating!
Cottage cheese: an cottage cheese (protein) plus fruits (fiber), this is the best way to calm a little hungry. But it can also be slipped into many recipes: it favorably replaces cream (more fatty and contains almost no proteins) in sauces, toppings, soups, cheesecakes, clafoutis …
Cognac: againsttaste removed, however, nothing extraordinary to report. The trick is to accompany the konjac with a good sauce (tomato, garlic, onion, thyme or basil…) and crunchy vegetables.
How to make homemade soup
Homemade soup provides volume at a low calorie intake (average 30 kcal per 100 g). Thus, a bowl of soup at the beginning of a meal fills the stomach and therefore slows down the movement of the fork. Vegetables are interesting for their high fiber content, as well as vitamins and minerals important for a good metabolism.
>> We cook it ourselves, rather than buying bricks that are too salty, which may contain additives or a lot of fat. Depending on the season and the leftovers: leeks, courgettes, carrots, tomatoes, celery… you can vary the pleasures endlessly! Discover homemade soup recipes here.
