Though we hate to admit it, some of the best foods can actually be the worst food for you. From fried chicken to pizza, delicious food always seems to be stacked in calories, sodium, added sugar, and carbs. Though it may seem unfair, there are ways to make any food healthier so that you can enjoy without all the regret.
First and foremost, opt for homemade wherever and whenever you can. There are tons of healthy seeming foods out there that can be secretly stacked with added sugar to replace missing fat and vice versa. However, when you cook the food yourself, you always know what you’re getting! From beans to bread, cooking at home is not only easy but is also quite delicious, as you can save your waistline and make yourself healthier.
Learning the basics should always be the first step to cook your favorite dishes at home in healthier ways. You need to learn how to bake easy bread that can also be used as pizza dough, tomato sauce for pastas and pizza, and baking as an alternative to frying. Though at first this may sound too simple, it’s just the first steps to your road to cooking healthier. Find a few of your favorite recipes and start from there while also integrating the basics. When you cook your own bread, you can choose how much salt and sugar you add as well as the kind of flour you use. You can make your bread grain light and white. Whatever your choice, it will more than likely be far healthier than store bought items.
What those interested in stepping up their healthy choices should do would be to start their own organic garden. Not only is gardening relaxing and fun but you will be forced to eat your delicious produce you grow and won’t go back to store bought food laden with GMOs and pesticides. Try starting small by buying a planter from Lakeside Collection to kick start your healthy eating.
Another way to add way healthier food to your diet is to substitute regular animal based products to vegetarian and vegan ones. Getting used to this change may take some time, but if you’re devoted to your health and delicious food, finding the right recipes will be easy.
