For many people, the reason you stop following a diet is simple: the food tastes gross.
Cardboard flavor…no flavor….not sure which is worse!
The key for long term weight loss is to find foods that are both healthy AND tasty!
With that in mind, here are 3 simple swaps that are big on flavor and small on calories!
3 Simple Swaps
Choose Mushrooms Over Meat!
This is something that my vegetarian readers do during the Cabbage Soup Diet week! Sautee one cup of mushrooms for only 21 calories or brown 3 ounces of meat for over 200 calories.
If you’re still hungry, make more mushrooms and still be in a calorie loss compared to the meat. Mushrooms are inexpensive, too. Choose shiitake for even more protein!
Choose Avocado Over Butter!
Spread a tablespoon of avocado on your breakfast toast instead of butter. Fresh, ripe avocado has about 25 calories, whereas butter has over 100.
Avocado is filling and has healthy fats in it as well.
Choose Lettuce Wraps Over Bread!
You can swap healthy, crunchy, whole lettuce leaves for sandwich bread, tortillas, and more. Four large romaine leaves is about 20 calories, and a hamburger bun is well over 100 calories!
Can you think of anything else that you swap for – things that taste great and are low in calories?!
To your health,
