7 of My Favorite Healthy Recipe Tips That Anyone Can Use ...


Being a health and nutrition lover, I have accumulated quite the list of my favorite healthy recipe tips that I love to share with other people. Healthy recipes are some of my favorite things to experiment with when I have the time because they’re truly easier than you think, and creating recipes to be healthier for you is such an important thing to do when you can. Sugar consumption is higher now than it’s ever been, and it contributes to everything from diabetes, to heart disease, to depression, to hormonal problems, and more. Hydrogenated and trans fats in processed foods and many easy to make foods at home are also toxic to your body and detrimental to your health. The truth is, you have complete control over how to make your foods healthier, and it doesn’t have to be expensive or time consuming. Try some of my favorite healthy recipe tips to try if you need a few ideas to recreate your meals to be healthier and still taste good too!

1. Nix the Oil

Probably the most effective of all my favorite healthy recipe tips is to stop using oil in your baked goods, entrees, and anything else you cook. It’s fine to coat your pan with a little coconut oil, but avoid using large amounts in your recipes when you don’t need to. You can easily substitute whole pureed foods like canned pumpkin or applesauce in baked goods, and instead of seasoning your foods with oils, try using whole plant fats like avocados, nuts, seeds, and even a single whole egg. It’s much better to get your calories from a whole food than from part of a food, which an oil is. Whole foods contain more phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, and protein than oils do. I do suggest using coconut oil to coat your pans with, but don’t douse your food in it, regardless that it’s healthy. All calories add up, and cutting where you can will really make a difference.
