Mac ‘n Cheese

Who doesn’t love mac ‘n cheese, right? 😍 However, it’s not the healthiest dish out there. But worry not, we’re here to give you a healthy twist to this classic favorite. Instead of using regular white pasta, try using whole wheat or quinoa pasta. You can use cashews to create the creamy texture instead of using heavy cream. Add some roasted broccoli and cherry tomatoes for an extra healthy twist.

Vegetarian Chili

A hearty bowl of chili is perfect for a chilly night. 🍲 But instead of using meat, try using lentils or black beans as your protein source. You can add some chopped sweet potatoes to give that natural sweetness. It’s also a great way to add some extra veggie serving. Don’t forget to sprinkle some shredded cheese and dollop of plain Greek yogurt. Yum! 😋

Nachos are perfect for game nights but they’re usually loaded with unhealthy toppings. But don’t worry, you won’t have to skip them! Use whole-grain tortilla chips as the base, then add some black beans, corn, and salsa. Instead of using sour cream, use a dollop of plain Greek yogurt or guacamole. Top it off with some shredded cheese on top. You’ll love this healthier version. 🥑

Veggie Burger

If you love burgers, you’ll love this twist. Instead of using a beef patty, try a veggie patty. You can use a portobello mushroom or a black bean patty as a base. Add some veggies like lettuce, tomatoes, and onions. Instead of using cheese and mayo, use a slice of avocado or a few dollops of hummus. So delicious! 🍔

Cauliflower Pizza

Pizza is a classic guilty pleasure, but it’s not exactly the healthiest option. But have you tried cauliflower pizza? 💡 Instead of using regular flour for the crust, use cauliflower. It’s low-carb, gluten-free, and full of healthy antioxidants. Top it off with some fresh veggies and a sprinkle of cheese and voila! You have a healthier pizza.
