Pumpkin salad . Baked and sliced squares pumpkin, fresh apple, carrot, pear. All fill with olive or vegetable oil and lemon juice.
Pumpkin porridge is prepared as an independent dish or as an additive in semolina. Such porridges our grandmothers and mothers often cooked babies, so that they quickly gain weight after birth. In our case, the manga will not be needed, because we need a pumpkin for weight loss, and not for weight gain. For cereal you will need 200-300 gr. cut into small cubes of pumpkin and less glass of water. Water should not cover a bit of the vegetable's pieces a little, in the cooking process, it releases liquid and as a result you can get not something porridge, but something liquid. You can add 1-2 a tablespoon of rice or other cereals (not corn, not manna) at the end. Salt and sugar to add is not recommended, pumpkin and so sweet enough vegetable.
Pumpkin soup. In addition to cereals, casseroles, salads and juices, you can prepare a pumpkin soup for weight loss. If you know the consistency of soup-puree, then you should get the same. For cooking you will need: pumpkin, onion, broth (you can take chicken or vegetable), cream, hard cheese, greens. Cheese and cream take with the least fat content. Pumpkin fry in the oven, and at this time fry the onions in a frying pan. After the shift with the onion, a little fret and add the broth. Blend everything with a blender, add cream and bring to 90 degrees. Do not let the soup boil after you poured the cream. It remains to add grated cheese and greens. Such a soup will be very satisfying, and most importantly, low-calorie.
