If you are like me, you want to eat healthier, but have your favorite recipes that are not exactly friendly to your waistline. Lately, I have been pulling up those old recipes and thinking of ways to make them healthier without compromising taste. With a few swaps here and there, I can make anything healthier and taste great.
Here are a couple swaps I have make on a regular basis. I try to use fresh herbs whenever possible. Using the right herb can transform your bland meal into an extraordinary creation. I use sea salt instead of table salt. Some people don’t agree with this swap because sea salt lacks iodine (a necessary nutrient), but I personally like the taste better. I have swapped Whole White Wheat Flour in place of enriched white flour when baking. I use black refried beans instead of regular, and I always use skim milk over regular. Those are a few of my favorite swaps, what are yours?

Bottom line is you don’t have to sacrifice taste to enjoy cooking your favorite meals. Why not try a swap this week?
