5 healthy ways to replace your unhealthy cravings!

Why does food that is good for health, cannot be tasteful? Who says that to stay fit you must compromise on your palate? Well I don’t say that either. Being a foodie but a believer of healthy eating, I believe one needs food that touches their soul, while taking care of one’s health. Being on the wrong side of thirty and rising health concerns, I found myself in a dilemma- whether to satisfy my taste-buds or my health.

Try these 5 easy ways to enjoy your favorite recipes in the most delectable yet healthy variations!

#1 Brittles for candies

Midnight cravings for sweets much? Make a quick mixture of raisins and almonds, toss them in honey and freeze them up. Store it up for those sudden sweet cravings or use them as a topping for ice-cream or special Sunday pancakes. Because honey is low in sugar, and also keeps you away from cold and flu, this dessert option is absolutely guilt-free, yet delicious enough to satisfy your sweet tooth.

#4 Fry without frying

To replicate the taste of deep fried food, sans the saturated fat, brush the item with olive oil and broil it in the oven. And thus, you can get a taste of fried food without actually frying!

#5 Put it under the wraps

Wrap meat and fish in cabbage leaves and pan sear it. It uses less oil and adds a unique flavor to your dish. You can also try grape leaves for a little smoky flavor.
