Healthy Eating Tips

  1. Reduce sugar intake without compromising sweetness. Try using sweet tasting spices such as ginger, cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  2. Use the powder form of garlic and onion versus the salt form to cut down on sodium intake.
  3. Eliminate salt and boil pasta in herb-flavored water using spices such as basil and oregano.
  4. Cut down on calories from breaded foods, batters, gravies, sauces, and fried foods by using herbs and spices to season foods.
  5. Substitute fat free or low fat milk in recipes to cut down on fat content.
  6. Replace the oil in baked goods with applesauce. Your product will come out moist and reduced in fat.
  7. Introduce additional vegetables in soups and stews. Use meat as a garnish to reduce cholesterol.
  8. Microwave, bake, broil, or grill foods versus frying to lower fat.
  9. Add dry beans and lentils to dishes to increase the fiber and nutrient content.
  10. Incorporate fresh fruits whenever possible in desserts to reduce added processed sugars.
