Make these healthier food substitutions
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Healthy eating doesn't have to mean depriving yourself, but it does mean making smarter choices.
Make these substitutions for a healthier meal, the American Heart Association advises:
- Try recipe changes that provide a similar flavor and texture. For instance, swap 1 cup of heavy cream with 1/2 cup of low-fat yogurt.
- When shopping for snacks, opt for those that are baked rather than fried. Choose snacks lower in salt.
- Go grilled, rather than fried, for dishes at a restaurant.
- Add more color to your meals by skipping fries and adding a salad or apple slices.
