Each post, I will try to include a healthy recipe or healthy diet suggestions. Here are some to try:
*Instead of cereal, or granola, make your own oatmeal – this cuts the sugar, and sodium from prepackaged mixes. Many rice cookers have a setting for this, so you can use the fiber rich steel cut oatmeals, and have breakfast waiting for you in the morning.
* Try scrambled eggs with veggies, instead of an egg sandwich. You get fiber, a serving of vegetables, and healthy nutritients. And if, you use egg whites, you’re cutting the cholesterol & saturated fat in the egg yolk.
*Instead of ice cream, try some frozen blueberries with some nonfat yogurt as a topping instead. Or, blend a frozen banana at high speed until it reaches that creamy texture. Both methods cut the calories, fat & sugar and have healthy micronutrients.
*Turkey sausage instead of pork or beef, has less saturated fat. Watch the sodium and saturated fat, however, in what you purchase.
*Salad for lunch? Make it spinach instead of almost nutritionless iceburg lettuce. Spinach has more nutrients including vitamins A & C, as well as iron, magnesium & folate.
