Learn to Give Any Recipe A Healthy Makeover

Hello my culinary Cuties!

Last week, I showed you how I can transform any recipe into a healthier meal, by turning a traditional meat lasagna into a yummy zucchini variation filled with fresh vegetables. Well, as promised, it’s time to teach you how to do this for yourself, grasshopper.

Truth be told, it’s not as hard as you think. You just need to learn some easy swaps you can apply to common ingredients that aren’t so good for you, like loads of butter, sugar and white flour.

Add a little fresh, organic, and sugar or dairy-free magic in the mixture and voila! Any dish ends up better for your bod while still being delicious for your taste buds.

So, here are my 9 easy ingredient swaps to give any recipe a healthy makeover. Plus, as a bonus goodie, you can download the entire infographic here to keep handy when you’re cooking.
