For starters, just because you want to eat healthy does not mean you need to eat tasteless foods. Seasoning is always a good switcher-upper! My favorite seasoning of all time is “Slap Ya Mama” seasoning… It’s got a good spicy kick to it and you can put it on anything! And you can even make it, but I think there’s a special ingredient to it that makes it so delicious. I put it on my vegetables, potatoes, meats, and pretty much everything. Any seasoning can really make a difference when cooking. But I try to stay away from really salty seasonings.
Seasoning isn’t the only way to switch up foods. Instead of making twice-baked potatoes, try twice-baked sweet potatoes! If you haven’t tried a super salad, try one now! Instead of regular white pasta, try rice or wheat pasta. Also, if you like pasta and rice, quinoa is another healthy alternative and it is cooked similarly. Spaghetti squash is another really delicious option! Also, breakfast does not always have to be breakfast foods; try eating leftovers from dinner! SWITCH IT UP. I find a lot of my recipes on Pinterest and Instagram. If you’re ever at a loss for meal ideas, social media is like a recipe book. Also, mix things up and put foods together that you never thought of before. For example, hummus on eggs and toast – I never thought it would be good, but it is.
I tried a new recipe and made flourless pancakes recently. The ingredients included bananas and eggs, with optional vanilla and baking soda – 4 SIMPLE INGREDIENTS! It was way better than I thought and I will probably make them again. I also tried making tuna fish salad with mashed avocado instead of mayonnaise. So take a chance, try something different… YOU NEVER KNOW, YOU MIGHT LIKE IT!
