10. Instead of: Beef Tacos with Sour Cream and Salsa
Try: If you’re a huge fan of beef tacos with salsa and sour cream, quit this unhealthy recipe for the healthy fats that you can devour with Chicken tacos with guacamole and salsa.
Benefits: The taste and texture is nearly the same, except that this dish is tastier, with a lower calorie density and heaps of essential nutrient, such as fiber and protein. Feel free to throw in a fruit or a veggie into this platter, avocados would be great, so would cherries, broccoli and kale.
11. Instead of: A Whole Plate of Pasta
Try: Instead of devouring an entire plate brimming with calorie-dense pasta, why not devour a plate of veggies, or perhaps, half a plate laden with pasta and the other half with veggies? You don’t have to stop eating pasta if you don’t want to, just try to mindful about your portions.
Benefits: Stop piling your plates with pastas and spaghettis, but instead, create a colourful assortment of one cup pasta, one cup spaghetti, sauces and veggies, like beans, corn, Brussels sprouts, and broccoli to brim your plate with protein and fiber. Pick out whole wheat pasta and noodles instead of the processed varieties.
