If you care about your figure, you must know how to choose carefully the food you eat. So soup or soup? What nutritionist Mihaela Bilic says.
“Soup or cream soup? How cold outside, how craving a hot soup / soup. Chicken soup with homemade noodles or dumplings is a real medicine. And for gourmets and sweet tooths, I suggest a bean soup with meat smoked or sour cream borscht … hard to resist!
What is the relationship between soup and silhouette? Very good, considering that the soup fills our stomach with water. Inflate your belly, but don’t get fat! Are there any differences between soup and soup? Let’s analyze.
Soup it is a mixture of vegetables, flour and meat diluted in a lot of water. If it’s sour, it’s called soup. If it’s sweet, we call it soup. The ingredients are visible, the juice is clear and the fat cannot be hidden, it rises to the surface. The oil does not mix with the water, the soup degreases very easily, both when it is hot and after it has cooled down.
It is not dangerous to put potatoes, pasta or rice in the soup, the quantity does not exceed 2 tablespoons / portion and the figure is not in danger. Even though it’s a thick soup with cream, it’s not serious: a tablespoon of cream has fewer calories than a tablespoon of oil.
Cream soup it’s basically a vegetable / legume soup put in a blender. It can also contain meat, but its creamy texture is given by the potatoes / roots. To make it thicker and to add flavor, some recipes contain flour, butter and / or cream … or this can be a figure trap. Unfortunately, the flour incorporates the fat and it is no longer visible. Cream soup cannot be skimmed. For added safety, it would be best to cook it yourself or have it done by a trusted cook.
All in all, the variations make up for it: the soup contains some fatty meat, while the cream soup has more potatoes or cream. As an energy value, count 150 cal for a bowl of soup / soup, equivalent to half a second dish. And the best part is that it keeps the stomach full for twice as long. The soup is a friend of the silhouette and can be eaten as a single dish for lunch or dinner … dietary, balanced and very Romanian “, wrote Mihaela Bilic on Facebook.
What to choose on a diet: ricotta or mozzarella? Bilic: It’s perfect for anyone on a weight loss diet
“Ricotta is curd, mozzarella is cheese. There are two types of cheese that we adopted by the Italians and included in the Romanian culinary tradition. Since they are unsalted and full of whey, we get the impression that it is a fresh cheese, with little fat and few calories. In reality, mozzarella is not a sweet curd, but a cheese. It is obtained by boiling and mixing, molded into a round shape and then kept in brine. A mozzarella “egg” has about 300 cal. 25% fat – more than telemea cheese, put a slice of bread and a tomato next to it and the meal is ready.
With ricotta it is another story, it is similar to the Romanian curd, it is obtained from the coagulation of whey. It is the most dietetic cheese, perfect for athletes or for those on a diet, in principle it must contain only proteins and mineral salts, without a drop of fat. It’s just that the Italians have “improved” the recipe and added 12% cream.
This explains why ricotta is creamy and sweet, and our curd is stuffy and crumbly. Compared to mozzarella, in ricotta we have half the fat and protein content and the number of calories. Mozzarella goes very well with pizza and salads, while ricotta is ideal for pasta. Don’t exceed 100g / serving if you want to be fit, “Mihaela Bilic wrote on Facebook.
