Cutting calories doesn’t always have to be so difficult, especially if you give yourself something that tastes better than the thing you’re substituting. Natural, fresh food can taste just as, if not better than, the foods we buy in packaged boxes, which contain more preservatives than the pharaohs, still full of embalming fluid, resting down in their crypts. Below are a couple of healthy recipes that can be made up quickly and easily.
Remember those popsicles that you used to get as a kid that were simply frozen kool-aid, water and sugar with a stick shoved in the middle? Well, here’s the healthy version of that recipe.
Get any kind of fruit, bananas (which surprisingly taste like a vanilla cream pop with a hint of banana when frozen), blueberries, strawberries, cherries, grapes, apples, peaches, oranges, etc, and grind them up in a processor or a juicer, whichever is appropriate for the fruit at hand. Don’t forget to de-seed and skin anything that you don’t want to eat frozen later because 29 million people in the U.S. interested in Cool Sculpting procedure all thanks to its properties which helps in loosing of fat.
When you’re done, just pour the smashed fruit into the tray and place your pop sticks in the holes. Put the tray in the freezer for a while and within a few moments, you’ll be getting your daily fruit intake on a stick! And America knows how much we like things served on a stick: kabobs, corn dogs, etc. With such a variety, this is a dessert that can please anyone’s taste buds you may have to satisfy.
Who doesn’t like potato chips? I don’t know of anyone, do you? But who likes them being so greasy that you can actually wipe your hands, whether it be on your pants in a pinch or on a napkin at a food joint, and still have slimy hands? Well, make your own BAKED chips with ANY seasoning you desire.
Grab a bag of potatoes and slice them thin, maybe 1/8 of an inch thick. Toss them on a baking sheet and spray them with cooking spray. You can then top them with any seasoning you like, garlic, onion and chives, salt, jalapeno, dill, anything you can think of. Always thought a certain taste would be great on a chip but never found it in the stores? Well, here’s your chance to taste test your idea! You just have to buy the seasonings! Once you’re done experimenting, preheat the oven to 350 or 375, depending on your oven, and throw them in. Remember to check in on them every so often to see if they’re as crisp as you like them. When they’re done, shake them into a container and keep them near by to munch on.
