OT - Tone-up Tuesday
Happy Tuesday, STalkers!! Sorry I dropped the TuT and EOF balls, but it's been cuh-razy at work.
Let's talk about healthy food substitutes. I had someone "accuse" me of trying to eliminate food from my diet. Well, no, not exactly. I'm trying to EAT HEALTHIER and that's a whole 'nother animal.
Some of my fave things:
Zoodles are zucchini noodles (who else has a spiralizer?). Pasta is my waterloo, so I almost always substitute zoodles for pasts noodles. I typically throw in a can of clams, but occasionally add shrimp, chicken, or some steak strips. And shrooms every time!
- RICED CAULIFLOWER
This is my go-to rice substitute (except when making rice pudding!). Caution: this is going to ooze liquid and NOT soak it up like rice does. So if you add it to a dish that's a bit dry, it will ADD liquid.
- PEPPERIDGE FARM VERY THIN WHITE BREAD
I'm not giving up my bread!!! This bread is veeerry thin. You still get your carbs, but a lot fewer.
- MRS. DASH
For anyone trying to cut down or eliminate salt, Mrs. Dash is AWESOME. There are quite a few, so if you can't find one you like, you're too damn picky. LOL!
What's your favorite healthy substitute?
