lowest-calorie-foods-you-can-eat-them-in-large-quantities-without-adding-in-kilograms

Low-calorie foods help you eat more in volume, but less in calories. To lose weight you need to consume fewer calories than your body burns. One way to reduce the number of calories you eat is to focus on low-calorie foods.


A diet with low calorie foods can create a caloric deficit that can lead to weight loss.

However, not all low-calorie foods are equal. In general, low-calorie foods - which are usually carbohydrates, such as fruits and vegetables - will not bring you the same feeling of satiety as low-calorie foods, which contain protein and fat.


Protein, fiber and fat tend to be the most satiating, while carbohydrates usually leave us feeling hungry shortly after we eat.


Here are 10 healthy, low-calorie foods that you should incorporate into your diet.


Crispy vegetables

No wonder vegetables are low in calories and high in nutrients, which are closely associated with a healthy weight.

Choose crispy vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, celery, cucumbers or bell peppers.

All these vegetables offer a crunchy texture and are an excellent snack or garnish at a meal.


Eggs

Eggs are high in protein and low in calories, making them one of the healthiest breakfast options to boost weight loss.

It's all about not frying them in oil. Boil them, place them or cook them in a non-stick pan that does not require oil.


Grapefruit

Grapefruit has a high water content and a lot of fiber and nutrients. In addition, the complex but sweet aroma makes grapefruit an ideal snack.

A small study in 2006 on obese people found that people who ate fresh grapefruit three times a day before meals lost more weight in 12 weeks than people who did not eat grapefruit.


Fish

Fish has proteins, which are related to weight loss, in part because it maintains the feeling of satiety and digests more slowly.

A small 2006 study found that people who ate a meal of fish consumed fewer calories than people who ate a meal of beef.

Eat white fish, such as cod, and fish that contain omega-3 fatty acids, including salmon and sardines.


Canned tuna

If you do not want to cook fish, canned tuna can offer the same benefits with less hassle. Mix tuna with healthy options such as salad or vegetables.


Yogurt

Consumption of yogurt has been linked to weight loss and reduction of body fat. Natural (unsweetened) yogurt is a particularly good choice because it is naturally low in fat and high in protein.

Yogurt can be used as a base for salad dressings or sauces.


Tomatoes

Tomatoes are a versatile, low-calorie vegetable that make an excellent snack. Tomatoes are very low in calories, but surprisingly filling. Their aroma and high water content and fiber content will help you feel full.

Add a drop of olive oil and pepper for a quick snack. Although olive oil is high in calories, the added fat can help you get rid of hunger for a longer period of time.


ChickenChicken

breastbreast is a low-fat, low-protein protein source. Consumption of poultry meat, such as chicken breast, is associated with general health.

A serving of 100 grams of chicken has about the same amount of protein as a portion of beef of the same size, with about 25% fewer calories and half of fat.

Use chicken in salads or vegetable wraps.


Soup

The soup has a lot of liquid volume, without many calories. For this reason, it can help you eat more and reduce the total amount of food consumed in a day.

A 2013 study of more than 4,000 adults found that people who regularly eat soup are less likely to be overweight or obese than people who do not eat soup.


Popcorn

Popcorn without oil or butter, has only 31 calories per cup, which makes it a very low calorie snack, perfect when you want something salty and crunchy.

It's a perfect snack, but beware of commercial popcorn, which is usually made with oil. You can buy corn kernels and make them at home, in a pot with a lid or even in a special popcorn maker without oil or butter. You can add salt and paprika over the popcorn for a more pleasant aroma.

famous-pizza-places-in-new-york-city

Are you interested in the best pizzerias in New York? Indeed, New York is a city of pizza lovers. Each resident chooses their favorite place. In all pizzerias, you can order pizza in slices, but there are places where you can spend the whole evening. Read about the best pizzerias in New York below.

 

New York pizza has little in common with thin Italian pizza. In an authentic Pizza slice - sauce, cheese, and dough and portioned pieces of such a size that you can eat one crust. There are hundreds of pizzerias in the city, but only those that are popular among the city's residents deserve the title of a real New York one. Below you will find a list of places where you can taste “the same” pizza.

 

How many pizza places are in New York City?

 

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, there will be 78,092 pizza restaurants in 2020. Nearly 53 percent of these restaurants will be independent. According to industry reports, chain restaurants – those with ten or more locations – will have 36,213 locations in 2020.

 

What are the most iconic pizza places in New York City?

New York is not only full of expensive and fine restaurants but also small pizzerias on the corners of busy streets. The history of one of the most famous and oldest pizzerias in the city, which you have probably heard about more than once.

 

Pino "Joe" Pozzuoli immigrated to the US from Naples in the mid-1950s. When he moved to America, he first renamed himself, Joe, as Pino is the Italian form of the name Joseph. Joe began working in pizzerias throughout the Northeast, and by the 1960s, he was personally coaching the best pizza chefs in the area. In the early 1970s, he moved and opened Joe's Pizza at the intersection of Bleecker and Carmine Streets in Greenwich Village, Manhattan. He liked ​​setting up pizzerias in unique neighborhoods like Greenwich Village, which has a diverse population.

 

Joe and Pat’s Pizzeria

Another place in New York has ceased to please connoisseurs of good pizza for more than half a century. The restaurant's decor is made in the Mediterranean style and sets the visitors in a positive mood as if transferring them to the cozy towns of the Italian coast. The owners and employees of the pizzeria come from the same family and are always happy to keep up the conversation in English and Italian. A feature of Joe and Pat's is a pizza cooked in the shape of a heart. This underlines the chef's love for this dish. Like Grimaldi's, you won't be able to order a single bite at this restaurant. Going to Joe and Pat's, be prepared to beat the whole pizza or share it with a "brother in misfortune." In addition to delicious pizza, the restaurant's menu is rich in traditional salads and hot dishes, allowing guests to taste other delicacies of Italian cuisine.

 

Grimaldi's

According to the owners of this restaurant, the skill of cooking pizza on coals is a dying art. It is this skill that Grimaldi's chefs are proud of. The pizza here is distinguished by a light smoky flavor and the thinnest crust, which is impossible to achieve by baking the dough in a gas or electric oven. This high quality of the product is gained through coal from Pennsylvania, the highest quality on the planet. Each of the three New York restaurants burns about half a ton of coal every day, allowing heating of the ovens to 650 °C. The result is satisfied smiles on the face and excellent guest reviews. It's no surprise that queues for restaurants start to form long before they open!

 

Di Fara

According to the Zagat rating, for eight years now, Di Fara has been at the top of the list of the best pizzerias in New York. The restaurant owner comes from an Italian family of bakers and pizza makers and has even won the title of "rock star" among local fans. He makes his pizza for the restaurant's customers. And on those rare days when House DeMarco is away on business, the pizzeria is simply closed. All restaurant recipes are based on family traditions passed down from generation to generation and are kept in the strictest confidence. The ingredients are imported from Italy, which provides an indescribable authentic taste of the finished product.

 

When ordering a whole pizza at Di Fara, you will be given a choice between a round and square ($4 more expensive) shape. Remember also that there is no menu as such in the restaurant. All pizza is automatically served as plain (the combination of cheese and tomato sauce already described above). If you want something more interesting, you will have to choose the desired filling for a fee. Fans of the restaurant simply call the local pizza "di best"! Restaurant rules allow you to bring your wine or beer. This will enable you to have a pleasant and cheap time while waiting for a tasty piece!

 

Artichoke

This relatively new (by New York standards) pizzeria was opened in Manhattan by enthusiastic cousins ​​in 2008, followed two years later by second and third establishments in the Chelsea and Greenwich areas. The menu full of improvisation will surprise you with juicy broccoli and pecorino cheese sandwiches and the culinary intrigue of the restaurant - artichokes stuffed with cheese. This delicacy is also served with spinach on one of the restaurant's pizzas. Or maybe you prefer crab stuffing? How about pizza with meatballs and parmesan? In any case, be prepared for long lines, as the place is already trendy. This is perhaps the only minus of the restaurant.

 

If you do not want to waste time in line, come at 3 am or order home delivery. The restaurant is open and delivers 24 hours a day!

 

Lucali

The history of the creation of this pizzeria has a romantic touch. Its owner and chef, Mark Yokano, volunteered to save his childhood favorite candy store from the rock of chain restaurants and decided to buy out the premises by opening an independent restaurant in it. Mark had to spend days and nights learning the art of making the most delicate dough in a traditional brick oven. However, his efforts paid off. Lucali instantly won the hearts of the area's residents and became famous for its great pizza throughout New York. The central place in the pizzeria's interior is occupied by the chef's desk, where this cherished dish is prepared in front of the visitors. The playful elements of the former candy store show through, giving the restaurant an air of freedom and spontaneity.

 

When you stop by Lucali for lunch or dinner, you can taste either the traditional pie or its sub-varieties wrapped in a cheburek (calzone). You will not find any other types of pizza or dishes here. In addition, all toppings are offered separately. But, as in Di Fara, you can bring your booze and spend the whole night in this homely restaurant.

 

Roberta's

The pizzeria is located in the hipster area of ​​Brooklyn - Bushwick. From the outside, the restaurant resembles an old garage. If you love thin crust pizza, then Robrta's is a gourmet paradise. Many ingredients are grown in a small garden right on the roof of the establishment. Pizza is not sold in slices, but in small individual portions. If you are in the eternal search for culinary delights, then you can safely go here.

 

Lombardi's

Gennaro Lombardi opened the first pizzeria in the United States in 1905. Since then, the restaurant has changed its location, but the descendants of the family follow the traditions and cook pizza in an original way - in a coal oven. Lombardi's only sells whole pizzas, so it's worth going here for dinner with friends.

 

Giuseppina

Giuseppina's owner and founder, Chris Iacono, proudly celebrates his apprenticeship at his brother's pizzeria, Lucali, for his craftsmanship. Chris Iacono's use of top tier ingredients, such as a cheese blend of low moisture mozzarella, homemade fresh mozzarella and imported Italian parmigiano reggiano cheese, as well as hand-cut pepperoni, fresh mushrooms, Italian olive oil and fresh basil, is evidence of commitment Giuseppin quality. The incomparable sauce comes from a secret family recipe handed down to the owner from his grandmother named Giuseppina.

 

NY Pizza Suprema

Very unexpected to find one of the best pizzerias in the city next to Pennsylvania Station. I learned about NY Pizza Suprema when I read about a guy who tried every pizzeria in Manhattan in two years. This place received very good reviews, and I had a desire to visit there urgently. The guy was right, it's really delicious here! Each pizza is excellently crispy, and the highlight of this place is the fragrant and slightly spicy tomato sauce. Try at least one slice of margherita pizza before you start ordering pepperoni.

 

John's Pizzeria of Bleecker Street

The interior of the pizzeria, also known as John's Pizza, is decorated with wood paneling and colorful paintings. Hipsters, artists, elderly Italians and many celebrities spend time here (at least I saw their photos on the camps). Here they canceled the sale of pizza in slices, so you can only order a whole one, such a portion will be enough for two or three people. All dishes are baked in a brick oven. This traditional method covers the edges of the pizza with a perfect, crispy, golden crust. John's Pizzeria prepares every dish in a traditional style. The pizza here is more refined than the American types. All ingredients used are exceptionally fresh. Hot sauces and premium cheese are used. The most popular dish is cheese pizza, for a change you can add toppings. You can also order a bottle of inexpensive wine.

 

Totonno's

Lombardi collaborator (and Neapolitan) Antonio Totonno Pero perfected the pizza recipe, and in 1924 he opened his place. Totonno's is still owned by the same family, although temporarily closed by Hurricane Sandy. It uses tomatoes imported from Italy, handmade mozzarella cheese, and dough made daily on the premises, but the crust is plump and thick rather than the usual thin plate (starting at $19.95). Totonno's should resume in the next couple of months. Cash only, no slices.

 

L&B Spumoni Gardens

The square pie at Spumoni is a classic Bensonhurst, one of the best Sicilian slices in town. Ludovico Barbati immigrated to the US in 1917 from Torella dei Lombardi, Italy. In 1939, he purchased property on 86th Street in Brooklyn to sell his spumoni (Italian ices); in the 1950s, his business expanded into a second building, which is now a pizzeria.

 

The pizza is still delicious: sweet tomato sauce covered in clear rectangles with a crispy toasted bottom, topped with melted mozzarella and a dash of parmesan. Slice $2.25, half tray $19, full tray $36. Credit cards, slices available.

 

 

Top 10 Pizza Places in America You Have To Visit

 

10. Big Lou's - San Antonio, TX

A Texas pun would be too easy, so we'll just say that Big Lou in San Antonio has some of the biggest pies. Not just a novelty, there are some pretty cool flavor combinations here, like bbq with pickles. But having a pizza that devours the table and produces slices over a foot long is everyone's dream, right?

 

9. Antico - Atlanta, Georgia

There are several impressive pizzerias in Atlanta. Antico in Atlanta is a small, casual pizzeria that serves super authentic Italian pizza. Cooked in a wood fired oven, the lovely chewy crust has those tender pieces of dough that give the crust a lot more flavor. There are a few variations on the menu, such as those filled with spiced meats or vegetables, but the Lasagna pizza, with bright slices of aged meat and ricotta cheese, is a real gem, unique to Antico. Topping substitutions are not particularly important here, and when you try a piece of any well-balanced pie, you will completely understand why.

 

8. Picco - Boston, Massachusetts

Picco in Boston takes two whole days to prepare the crust for the brick oven. The dough is fermented, which adds flavor. Flame-fried onions, shallots, garlic, sour cream, bacon and gruyère are an Alsatian pie that may be Picco's most popular. Every dish - from pizza to salads - is a beautiful work of art, combining color and artisanal ingredients. Even the ice cream is homemade.

 

7. Cloverleaf Pizza - Macomb, MI

Detroit-style pizza can be enjoyed at Macomb Michigan's Cloverleaf Pizza, which was inspired in the 1940s. Pies are more in the form of giant rectangles, as well as in places where sauce and cheese are sold. Topping your pepperoni pie is highly recommended.

 

6. Mulberry Street Pizzeria - Beverly Hills, CA

Perhaps one day you'll be traveling Beverly Hills - don't leave without grabbing a slice of thin-crust pepperoni from Mulberry Street Pizzeria. Quiet and surprisingly affordable, they make more New York-style variations and also have the best meatballs that customers regularly talk about. You might even see a celebrity or two munching on their favorite comfort food.

 

5. Ken's Artisan Pizza - Portland, OR

Portland Oregon has its fair share of eclectic eateries, so you bet they have a selection of pizza spots. Ken's Artisan Pizza combines authentic Italian wood-fired pizza with fresh, seasonal ingredients. The combinations are sometimes unexpected, but quite refreshing. Brooklyn has tomato sauce, mozzarella, Fra'Mani capicollo, marinated jalapenos, and that unexpected factor, some honey. Perfection. Don't miss Affogato for dessert - a local cup of coffee with brown sugar ice cream.

 

4. Slab - Portland, ME

Now on to another Portland on the east coast where you'll find Slab, a Sicilian-style restaurant with pizza and street food. The dough is hand-kneaded and grown in an "old world" style to reflect its true origins. Your typical slice comes with tomato sauce, mozzarella, provolone, and oregano, but you have choices for other toppings like savory provolone and sausage. Not a deep dish and not a thin crust, the classic slab-style pizza is perfect in the middle.

 

3. L&B - New York, New York

The L&B in Brooklyn, NY is refreshing on a classic if you want to shake things up a bit. The sauce comes on top of the cheese, fully blending the expected textures of the pizza while retaining phenomenal flavor.

 

2. Pequod's Pizza - Chicago, IL

Pequod's Pizza is for everyone who loves deep food and naturally in Chicago. Cheese, sauce, and caramelized crust fill the cast-iron platter that includes all of the "pan" pizzas, and you're likely to be stoked with a knife and fork. Deep dish pizza is amazingly delicious, and you'll taste some of the best at Pequod's. Starters and thin crust pizza are well received in this cozy place, but really deep dish pizza and pepperoni is the way to go.

 

1. Joe's Pizza - New York, New York

New York City is undeniably an amazing place to eat cheesecake, but to be honest, the choice of great places to do so is overwhelming. Joe's Pizza on Carmine Street has been around since the 1970s and is a community staple, so it's a good choice that's also easy on the wallet. Nothing beats the simplicity of a generous slice of New York-style cheese with just the right amount of sauce. Authentically cooked in a brick oven, the joint and pizza are no fuss and absolutely delicious.
