Paulette Lambert: Skinny Summer Recipes

Posted: Updated:
Drop 10 pounds by changing what you're eating. Paulette Lambert is back with skinny summer recipes!

1. Eat COOKED veggies instead of RAW because they will bloat you.

Eat cooked vegetables such as carrots, spinach, green beans, squash, tomatoes. Avoid raw brocoli, kale, brussel sprouts, bok choy, cauliflower, cabbage, radish ect. RECIPE - Carrot Puree Served with Pan Seared Salmon and Grilled Asparagus

2. Watch your liquid intake. Do not drink carbonated drinks (water included) or diet drinks. Switch to tea (camomile and mint are great). Limit alcohol intake. BEAUTY RECIPE - Camomile Pomegranite Mint Tea

3. Take probiotics. These will help with digestion and bloating. RECIPE - Probiotic Mango Lassie Smoothie (This will be made in blender on camera)

4. Limit condiments. They are high in sodium. You may think a HUGE salad with a side of dressing is a smart choice, when in reality it will REALLY bloat you up. Instead have a small turkey sandwich with fruit on the side. BEAUTY DISH - Turkey sandwich with side of strawberries vs. a HUGE salad

5. Limit Carbs and Refined Sugar - Eat control carbs only such as brown rice, oatmeal, sweet potato, whole grains. 4-5 servings daily. BEAUTY DISH - Summertime Oatmeal with Vanilla Greek Yogurt, Nectarine and Blueberries

6. Don't eat "sugar free / diet foods" (sorbitol) but chose a fresh sorbet instead. RECIPE - Dessert Sorbet
