Relax. Healthy cooking is way easier than you think!
No, you don’t have to completely overhaul your existing recipes for something healthier and less delicious. Sometimes it’s the smallest tweaks that make your dishes the healthiest, and you can even preserve all those signature flavors you know and love in the process.
How easy can it be? Here are three simple hacks you can use to health-ify your meals in just one step.
Liquid Stevia Instead of Sugar
Got a sweet tooth, but want to cut down on the sugar? Replace the sugar in your recipes with liquid stevia!
Stevia is a healthier alternative to sugar that is often found in healthy dessert recipes; don’t worry, you’ll still experience that same “rush” of sweetness that you get from sugar, so you don’t feel like you’re missing out on anything!
Greek Yogurt…Learn to Love It!
Meet your new best friend, Greek yogurt!
Greek yogurt is a creamy delicacy that can replace ice cream in your diet. Just add in some fruits and you’ve got yourself a heck of a late-night snack.
Greek yogurt is also used in place of ingredients like sour cream, so be on the lookout for healthy recipes that use Greek yogurt in creative and delicious new ways.
Lettuce for the Win
Craving a juicy burger or a melt-in-your-mouth sandwich? If you’re looking to lower your carb intake, there’s a simple trick you can use to do just that: swap out the bread for lettuce.
Think about it: you preserve all the flavory goodness packed inside the sandwich without killing your diet. Lettuce is a green vegetable, one of the healthiest veggies you can eat, so you won’t feel guilty biting into that lettuce-wrapped lunch sandwich or that dinner burger you’ve been waiting to eat.
