Real talk: Whether you’re a fitness model, stay-at-home mom or business person, “dieting” isn’t easy for anyone — especially in America! We’re bombarded by billboards, television ads and flashing lights on the street. How can we stay true to eating healthy with so many options for delicious food?
I’m here to tell you that if you keep enough variety of flavor in your house, you’ll be much less likely to eat out. Healthy food doesn’t have to be bland and boring. Over the years, I’ve learned a few tricks of the trade to help satisfy my cravings at home and avoid eating out. Below, I’ve listed some of my favorite low-calorie staple seasoners and condiments to keep in your cabinets at all times.
The key is to use a very small amount for flavor without adding an excess amount of calories and salt. What I like to do is take my fork, dip it in sauce, then take my bite with that small amount. Believe it or not, it’s the perfect amount of flavor. I recommend using the savory sauces or balsamic vinegar on chicken, turkey, eggs, steak and veggies. For oatmeal, Greek yogurt, sweet potatoes and cottage cheese, I’ll add a few drops of stevia and cinnamon. So delicious!
Making these changes alone can help you look forward to your next healthy meal rather than wish you were at a restaurant. Do you have any tips to share? I’d love to hear them! Leave me a comment or message on Facebook or Instagram, and let me know if this helps!
