Try new lifestyle trends to become a healthier you:
Use spiralized veggies such as carrot, zucchini, beets or sweet potato
for your noodles. These foods provide satiety with added fiber and additional
vitamins without the added carbs of pasta.
Use Butternut squash or white beans as a substitute for cream-based sauces.
Squash contains the antioxidants vitamin A & C, and beans provide
both insoluble and soluble fiber. Mash them with chicken or vegetable
stock for a creamy sauce.
Try different ethnic spices or citrus. Get out of your comfort zone and
add some spice to your life. Spices such as ginger, turmeric, coriander
and cumin and citrus such as lemon and lime can replace the need for sugar
and salt in most cases.
Don’t forget to keep moving. Research shows even short interval exercise
can provide health benefits. Yoga, PiYo (Pilates & Yoga), HIT (High
Intensity Training) or walking your favorite path are all beneficial.
