10 Fun Food Tips From the Yes Health Coaches

by Yes Health

Are you in a food rut? You’re not alone. Hard as we may try to keep meals fresh and exciting, sometimes it’s just easier to go with what we know. Because a varied diet is an important part of a healthy diet, the Yes Health coaches are sharing their top 10 tips to help all of us mix things up in the kitchen (or when we eat out). 

 
  1. Try cauliflower in place of rice. Now you can even buy pre-riced cauliflower to save time! Or use it as a replacement for bread in stuffing and to make a low-carb pizza crust.
  2.  Swap out traditional wheat pasta for quinoa or chickpea pasta for fewer carbs plus more protein and fiber. (And for a tasty non-grain option, invest in a spiralizer  to make zucchini noodles–yum!)
  3. Add a squeeze of citrus instead of salt for flavor. Lemon juice is a great, low-sodium way to make your tastebuds sing. Try it on pretty much everything from salads and soups to baked potatoes and stir fry.
  4. Use Greek yogurt as a sour cream and mayo substitute. (And on that same note, avocado and humus make great no-mayo sandwich spreads.)
  5.  Whip up a batch of paleo pancakes for the whole family. The simplest recipe is 1 egg : 1 banana plus a dash of cinnamon in a blender. Add nut butter for extra protein. 
  6. Opt for open faced sandwiches for more of the good stuff and less carbs.
  7. Balance fruit smoothies with a handful of spinach or kale —or both!
  8. Make a quick and easy (and delish!) goat cheese spread instead of using cream cheese on bagels. 
  9. Build a better salad. Avocado, nuts or olives make them more filling (and interesting).
  10. Cut off strawberry stems and put your ready-to-eat treat in a tupperware so it’s waiting for you in the morning. (This also goes for cutting up veggies the night before for easy access at lunchtime.)
