slim down recipes
If you are looking to slim-down, maintain your healthy weight or just get a little healthier this spring, here are seventeen of my best healthy diet tips with recipes to match. Simple, small changes in the foods you eat and ways you eat them can help you slice plenty of empty calories off your diet each day – and infuse your meals and snacks with more whole foods. Feed your body the energizing nutrients and foods that it really craves and you may find your spring “slim-down” to be a whole lot easier and enjoyable. Here are 17 slim-down secrets – and don’t miss #17 – I saved my favorite secret for last!..
1. Healthier Substitutions
Seek out healthier substitutions for the foods you know, love and crave. If crunchy savory chips are your snacking weakness, try raw vegan spicy kale chips - which are loaded with nutrients, fiber and flavor. Know that not all substitutions will be a hit with your taste buds - but once you start experimenting with options you may be surprised by what you fall in love with. I was shocked when I tried my first batch of kale chips and devoured the whole bowl!
