Who ever said you need to eat bland and boring food to be healthy? Health food can always be made tasty, and normal food can always be made healthy. Combine those two, and you’ve got yourself a cracking dish that not only satisfying, but also delicious. By replacing everyday ingredients with their healthier and more nutritious alternatives, you will be able to see a massive change in your health. Here are some great replacements for unhealthy foods.
The Dreaded Burger
Everyone who tries to lose weight will understand how difficult it is to control your burger cravings. Don’t worry, we have just the solution for you. Try using soya chunks instead of meat and potatoes for the patty. With its high protein content, soya chunks are not only extremely healthy, but if seasoned well, can be mistaken for meat! Using olive oil to shallow fry your patty, and replacing the wheat bun with whole grain bread, is another way to make this burger the healthiest burger you have ever eaten.
The Nutritional Breakfast
All you egg lovers, take in a deep breath of relief. You don’t have to give up eggs in order to follow a healthy diet. All you have to do is replace fried eggs and omelets with boiled eggs. Boiled eggs contain less saturated fat, which reduces the risk of it being a harmful to your cholesterol levels. A boiled egg contains 78 calories and 5.3 grams of fat, including 1.6 grams of saturated fat. A fried egg on the other hand contains 90 calories and 6.8 grams of fat, including 2 grams of saturated fat. The rest is up to you!
Need a quick snack?
Drop those unhealthy cookies and pick up some digestive ones, same taste, less calories and fat. Reach for some trail mix instead of the traditional one. With about 350 calories, trail mix is great for a biking trip, or even for a hunger pang in the middle of work!
Bacon lovers, pick that bacon back up and cook it in some olive oil. You may not believe this, but center cut bacon has only 25 calories per strip. So, feel free to team up your boiled egg with some delectable bacon and some multi-grain bread.
