Eat Healthier & Enjoy It
Have Your Cake & Eat It Too

US MED Gives BackEating healthy does not have to be a painful and boring process. Consider what aspects of your life are fun, and integrate them. Try cooking with your friends, family, or at a social gathering. It will no longer seem like a chore.

Did you know that you don't have to give up your favorite recipes? If you like lasagna, you can use whole wheat pasta. You can also replace some of the layers of pasta with zucchini cut to the same length. This will lower the calorie amount substantially, and increase the nutrient count in the food you are eating. Other suggestions are substituting oil with applesauce, when baking cakes. And when using a skillet you can also use non- stick cooking spray, instead of butter.

One more thing are your fruits and vegetables. Eating your veggies and fruit doesn't have to be dull. You can try dipping veggies in hummus, or eating fruit with peanut butter. Try sprinkling Cajun pepper over steamed veggies, or garlic salt over a baked potato. Guacamole, and pita chips is also another fun, and healthy snack.

Eating healthy can be enjoyable. Making the right decisions can help you enjoy what you're eating and still help you keep your calorie count low.
