Juice cleanses and extreme diets
are so not our thing. Instead of restricting what you eat, try tweaking it.
Here are 10 easy ways to make your food choices better in an instant—no depravation
Swap a soda for 100-percent juice with no added sugar or
Instead of fried chips, try baked veggies with tasty spices
Take the salt down a notch! Swap
it out for a pile of spices
Forget bottled smoothies you
can buy at the store and make your own.
Greek yogurt and fresh or frozen fruit is all you need!
For a cinchy way to cut fat, trade whole
milk for 2 percent
Ditch candy bars for homemade sweets, like oatmeal raisin
Trade creamy dressings for vinaigrettes flavored with infused oils
and vinegars. Hurrah for healthy fats!
Normal deli meats can be
really salty. Swap them for low-sodium
versions or homemade varieties, like roasted chicken and turkey.
Instead of pre-packaged snacks
loaded with a long list of ingredients, try homemade popcorn with a mix of herbs and real cheese. We like rosemary and Parmesan.
Forget fake butter and margarine
and go for real butter when
possible. It’s more satisfying and flavorful, so you’ll want less.
