7 Ways To Eat Just A Little Bit Healthier

Healthy food can be fun, if you know how to do it up.

Posted on

1. Turn your favorite less-healthy foods into healthy food mashups!

I won't pretend that a pizza frittata (above left, recipe here) is the same as an actual pizza, but taking the flavor profile of a favorite comfort food and mixing it into something healthier like a frittata or a salad is a pretty great weeknight compromise. Buffalo chicken lettuce wraps (above right, recipe here) also fit the bill.

2. In a snacking rut? Try making healthier versions of your favorite childhood snacks.

These fancy ants on a log are filled with fiber and healthy fats. DIY trail mix could make for a filling afternoon pick-me-up, and frozen yogurt pops make for a great after-dinner snack.

3. Spring produce is here! Take full advantage.

Spring means a bounty of asparagus, peas, and all kinds of other green things. So, if you're sick of the same old lettuce salads, now is a great time to mix things up.

5. Investing in a pressure cooker is a great way to cook healthy dinners super fast without having to plan ahead.

Slow cookers are great, but they also require the foresight to get dinner going in the morning or early afternoon. With a pressure cooker, dinner can be ready from start to finish in as little as 20 minutes! If you're willing to splurge (like, really splurge), this pressure cooker is the best plug-in option there is. If you're just testing the waters and not ready for such an investment, this pressure cooker is also a solid choice.

6. Make easy, healthy chicken dinners on a single sheet tray.

Boneless, skinless chicken breast can get boring pretty quick if all you're doing is grilling it or cooking it in a pan all by itself. Here are four easy ways to cook boneless, skinless chicken breast that will help you shake up your dinner game a little bit.
