300 Calorie Main Courses
One of the hardest habits to change in any weight loss program is what to make for dinner. Most of us grew up with a dinner consisting of meat as the main course, followed by one starchy side dish and one vegetable side dish. This can quickly lead to a rut in your routine and easily allows unhealthy options to make their way onto the plate. To help combat this, here are a few main courses, which are all under 300 calories, thanks to AllRecipes.com
This first dish has several ingredients, but most of them are spices. It's called Blackened Tilapia with Secret Hobo Spices. In a nutshell, you'll need: paprika, onion powder, garlic power, white and black pepper, cayenne pepper, oregano, thyme, celery seed and salt. These are the "secret hobo spices." Mix these together in a bowl and cote your tilapia fillets in the spices. Once coated, sauté the fillets in a healthy oil such as olive oil, coconut oil, or avocado oil. You can find the full recipe here. This is a delicious main dish, which will pair nicely with broccoli or a salad. Start to finish, this dish will take about 18 minutes to prepare.
