In Nigeria, there is always complaining going on, and you hear people saying or asking questions like, "How can I keep fit?" The only foods I see around me are heavy foods that will not help me stay fit or maintain a healthy weight. Well, that is not the case because Nigerians have lots of healthy fruits and meals. It is all about how you prepare your meal, and this is the standard all over the world.
Oilless Okra or Okro Soup
In Nigeria, okro soup is prepared in a variety of ways, but using palm oil is one of the most popular methods. To lose weight, you have to prepare your okra soup without oil because 1 tablespoon of oil contains 120 calories. Using oil to prepare okra soup makes it high in calories.
I love eating beans, especially the ones prepared with palm oil and plantains, but to reduce calories, prepare your beans with very little oil or no oil because beans are a complex carb that is healthy and nutritious and keeps you full for a longer period of time, making you less hungry.
Pepper does the magic, and this is so true. You can prepare your pepper soup with catfish or any other low-calorie protein.
