Eating Why is it that foods that are not so good
for us are always the ones that taste so good? As a mom, it’s hard to resist these foods
ourselves and to keep them from our kids. Here are a few meal makeovers so that you
can still enjoy the foods you like but with fewer calories. 1. Use ground turkey or chicken instead of
ground beef – Hamburgers are great at cookouts and who doesn’t like a sloppy Joe? For a
low fat solution, use ground turkey or chicken as a substitute for beef. If your family is
skeptical about taste, ease them and yourself into it. Mix half ground turkey with half
low fat ground beef. 2. Add vegetables to sauces and casseroles
. It’s hard to get the recommended amount of vegetables each day. To boost your family’s
intake, add diced vegetables to your spaghetti sauce or sneak them into casseroles. This
works well for picky eaters or kids who aren’t fans of the green leafy foods. In each bite,
they will get their veggies without even knowing it. 3. Bake don’t fry – Chicken is still just
as good if it is baked in the oven. If you are really attached to fried chicken, try
the oven fried variety. Instead of flour, use reduced-fat Bisquick mix for your recipe.
Breadcrumbs are also an option for fish, pork chops and chicken as an alternative to frying.
Use spices to marinade and flavor the meat before using any type of coating. 4. Don’t forget your non-stick pan – For
stir-frying or making fajitas try a non-stick pan instead of adding butter or oil before
cooking. Use frozen vegetables for such recipes so that the water produces steam and cooks
the vegetables quicker without burning. 5. Whole wheat instead of white – We all
know that anything made with white flour is high on the glycemic index and will spike
your blood sugar. Whenever possible make the substitution for your health. At a cookout
use wheat hotdog and hamburger buns. For quick meals, use whole wheat sandwich bread or tortillas.
Whole wheat contains more healthy fiber than pastas or breads made with enriched white
flour. 6. Opt for low fat dairy – Macaroni and
cheese is a favorite for many families. Who can resist the creamy cheese and firm noodles?
Low fat shredded cheese and low calorie Velveeta can be combined for the same creamy taste
that will be less harmful to your waistline. Moms have the hard task of keeping their food
habits under control while teaching their families to eat healthier. If you are a mom,
don’t do it alone. Use these healthy meal makeover ideas to tame the fat and calories
for everyone in your home. If you’ve liked the video give it a thumb
