4 Fat-Blasting Student Recipes For A Flat Stomach

4 Fat-Blasting Student Recipes For A Flat Stomach

I think everyone wants that flat stomach – right? Well, sorry to burst your bubble but there's actually no easy fix – soz.

The key to a flat stomach is 20% exercise, 80% diet and that's a fact. So there's no magic shake for you to get skinny before your six weeks of drinking and partying in Thailand – sorry hun. What you can do, however, is eat a decent diet and try out a few of these recipes.

We've included a breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert so you can up off that phat ass and look like a hot tamale.

1. Berry spinach breakfast smoothie

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 handfuls of frozen blueberries
  • 2 large frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice (dairy, coconut, soy, almond)
  • 2 teaspoons protein powder (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon of honey, or to taste

Blend it all up and enjoy.


2. Grilled chicken salad with avocado and mango

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons mango chutney
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 breast chicken, sliced
  • full plate of salad of choice (spinach, kale, mixed leaf)
  • half a diced peeled mango
  • half an avocado

Combine oil, juice, chutney, soy sauce, and ginger in a small bowl. Place chicken on large plate; spread 2 tablespoons oil mixture over chicken. Turn chicken to coat, and let stand 5 minutes.

Grill the chicken for 4 mins each side.

Throw the greens, mango, avocado with the chicken in a bowl and add the rest of the dressing.


3. Teriyaki beef and veggie stir-fry

Gently fry 90g cubed beef tenderloin in 2 tbsp reduced-salt teriyaki sauce and lay over 100g cooked brown rice. Top with 32g sliced carrots, 50g chopped broccoli, 35g sliced water chestnuts, 40g sliced peppers and 3 tbsp light honey and mustard dressing.


4. Chocolate Avocado Mousse


This bad boy is actually vegan (I know it's a scary word) but tastes delish.

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 60ml almond/coconut milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

Put it in a blender and you're good to go. For a thicker mousse use less milk or vice versa for a thinner mousse.
