5 easy ways to eat healthier
Healthy eating is a lot easier than many people think at first glance. After all, many products that are harmful can be changed with healthier alternatives. You don’t have to change your diet drastically. Here are some tips how to replace unhealthy products.
Replace mayonnaise with avocado
These wonderful fruits are always worth to have at hand. They are rich in many healthy, monounsaturated fat and they can be used in a wide range of dishes. For example, you can smash an avocado and spread in on your toast. It will be much more useful than butter or mayonnaise. 2 tablespoons of avocado has 50 calories, while the same amount of mayonnaise has 100 calories and butter as many as 200 calories!
Use stevia in your coffee or tea instead of sugar
A teaspoon of sugar in your coffee or tea can provoke a very sharp increase in blood sugar levels. Try a low-calorie sugar substitute, a natural sweetener stevia. It is a plant-based sweetener, which is much sweeter than sugar, so you will only need a little of it.
To give your soups and sauces a creamy taste, add some cashew nuts
Everything you need is just a blender to crush a few cashew nuts. Mix them into the soup instead of milk products. It will enrich your dish and add a sufficient amount of protein. Place the nuts in the soup instead of cream or sour cream.
Give priority to fresh fruit rather than juice
No one can deny that a glass of juice has its advantages, but if you do not have a juicer, it is better to eat fresh fruits instead of buying bottled juice. Those are usually high in sugar. Many fruits (such as mangoes, pineapples and apples) are sweet enough and they also have fiber, which is very necessary to maintain good intestinal function.
Have slices of vegetables instead of crackers
To prepare a delicious snack, you do not need crackers. Try to replace them with vegetables (such as zucchini, carrots, cucumber, beetroot, etc). For example, spread some mascarpone cheese on slices of cucumber.
