5 Healthy Food Hacks
We aren’t giving up our morning pastries or roasted steak dinners anytime soon, but keeping a healthy balance is important. When you crave lighter options, these 5 healthy hacks are perfect for keeping a balanced diet – from sweet to savory, these are our tried and true favorites!
Try skipping the extra carbs with Zucchini Pasta. It’s great warm or cold!
How about a guilt-free dessert? We love this Ultimate Chocolate Pie from Chocolate Covered Katie! Tofu replaces high-calorie cream cheese, putting this creamy pie at only 143 calories per serving!
Try this week’s Cauliflower “Mashed Potatoes”. While we are NOT giving up real mashed potatoes, we are loving this lighter option! Another way to lighten up a pasta recipe is with eggplant. Eggplant Lasagna has all the deliciousness of regular lasagna, this recipe won’t ruin your carb count for the week. With a base of protein-rich chickpeas, and no flour or oil, these Chocolate Chip Cookies are unbelievably healthy and totally nomnom-worthy. Pro tip: Make your own chocolate chips from this healthy chocolate recipe!
