  • Replace unhealthy options with some healthier substitutes – Go for Greek yogurt in a recipe if it requires mayonnaise. Use old cheese or aged cheese compared to the mild ones. Old cheese got strong flavors hence, you use less cheese in the recipe, cheese like cheddar, parmesan etc. Use of honey or molasses instead of sugar, use of mashed cottage cheese with milk to have a cream like consistency instead of sour cream and many more. There are so many healthy replacement for high calorie foods.
  • Opt for Roasted Vegetables – Roasted vegetables like sweet potatoes, broccoli, carrots, asparagus, eggplants and zucchini etc. are good for health. Roasted vegetables are always better than the fried versions.
  • Opt for one bowl meal or salads. Salads are healthy and plus if you have salads like chicken salads with fruits and vegetables which replaces the whole meal then this could be the healthiest alternative. In salad, dressings are important; opt for vinaigrette dressings than to those creamy ones. Always use yogurts instead of mayonnaise.
