But it's not always easy, I absolutely loathe the word diet and I hate being told what I can and can't eat because the minute I know I can't eat it, that's when I want it.
With that in mind, I'm doing this the easy way, I'm counting my calories, I'm drinking only water but I'm still enjoying my delicious food. It's not that hard if you cut a few things out and search for the low fat ingredients and if even if you don't, just eat in moderation.
That's the key for me, I can't diet, I can slow down and eat less but I can't stop altogether, I love food too much, cooking and eating is in my blood or I wouldn't be Portuguese :)
These wonderful Turkey Sliders only work out to 113 calories each, so they're good and healthy too :)
BBQ Turkey Sliders
1 lb ground turkey
1 green onion, sliced
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon barbecue sauce (whichever you like)
1/4 cup low fat mozzarella cheese
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl.
Divide into 8 equal portions.
Grill on a medium to hot fire for about 5 minutes, turn and grill for another 5. You can baste them with some more barbecue sauce at this point but if you're going for low fat, low calorie, then skip that step like I did.
When they're done, remove and place on dinner rolls. Fry up some onion slices and top the patties with it.
You don't have to add the onions either, we like onions on ours but some people don't, matter of fact my little one doesn't like them so I leave it off his burger :)
