10 Ways to Healthier Eating Habits!
Healthy eating certainly doesn't have to
be bland or dull! Try a few of these suggestions to improve
your diet, without sacrificing any flavor!
Roast or steam vegetables such as onions,
carrots, zucchini and peppers instead of frying or
stirring in fat. Drizzle with a little olive oil or
lemon juice and sprinkle with herbs for extra punch.
Use chicken, beef or vegetable stock
as low-fat base for soups, stews, gravies and sauces.
Thicken sauces with cooked, pureed vegetables
instead of flour or cornstarch.
Garnish soups with a sprinkle of fresh
herbs and/or Thermojetics® High-Protein, Low-Carb
Roasted Soy Nuts with Cardia® Salt, instead of sour
cream and cheese.
Choice meats have more flavor and less
fat than prime cuts, same goes for free-range poultry.
To save calories: roast, bake, broil
or grill meats instead of frying.
Use egg substitutes or egg whites instead
of whole eggs.
Strained, blended low-fat cottage cheese
can replace up to 3/4 the fat in yeast dough recipes.
Use applesauce instead of oil or shortening
in baking cakes.
Canned vegetables contain much more
salt than their fresh counterparts. Stock up on whatever's
in season to save money and get the best flavor.
