Dinner-Time Antioxidant Boost for Weight Loss

Grilled Salmon with Blueberry Salsa: Grill a salmon fillet and top it with a salsa made from fresh blueberries, cilantro, jalapeño, and lime juice. Salmon is high in omega-3 fatty acids, and blueberries are packed with antioxidants.

Spinach and Walnut Pesto Pasta: Use whole wheat or legume-based pasta and toss it with a homemade pesto made from spinach, walnuts, garlic, and olive oil. Spinach and walnuts are excellent sources of antioxidants.

Beetroot and Goat Cheese Salad: Combine roasted beetroot slices with mixed greens, crumbled goat cheese, and a sprinkle of walnuts. Dress with balsamic vinegar and olive oil for a flavorful, antioxidant-rich meal.

Chicken and Quinoa Stuffed Peppers: Stuff bell peppers with a mixture of cooked quinoa, diced chicken breast, spinach, and tomatoes. Bake until the peppers are tender. This meal is full of nutrients that promote overall health and weight loss.

Turmeric and Ginger Stir-Fry with Shrimp: Stir-fry shrimp with a variety of vegetables like bell peppers, broccoli, and carrots. Add fresh turmeric and ginger for a big antioxidant boost. Serve over brown rice or cauliflower rice.

Butternut Squash Soup with a Twist of Orange: Blend roasted butternut squash with vegetable stock and a touch of orange zest. The squash is high in beta-carotene, and orange zest adds a refreshing twist and vitamin C.

Kale and Sweet Potato Bowl: Sauté kale and roasted sweet potatoes in olive oil. Add a sprinkle of seeds (such as pumpkin or sunflower) for added antioxidants and serve as a hearty, nutrient-dense bowl.

Berry Topped Grilled Chicken: Grill chicken breasts and serve with a sauce made from reduced mixed berries (such as strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries). Berries are excellent sources of antioxidants, and their natural sweetness complements the chicken well.
