If you feel like you are subsisting on boiled chicken breasts and green salad, it can be easy to "cheat" on your diet and fall off the wagon.
Take some time each week to seek out healthy yet tasty new recipes. There are many meals that are delicious, yet low in fat and sugar content.
Try doing some substitutions to make your old favorites healthier.
For example, if you have a weakness for baked goods, swap out the refined white flour and try whole wheat or spelt flour.
If pasta is your comfort food, try egg noodles, corn or vegetable noodles in place of the traditional durum semolina options.
Did you know that honey and applesauce are commonly used as sugar substitutes in baking?
Keep those old, black bananas and throw them in your freezer for your next baking adventure.
Besides being perfect for yummy banana bread, they are a great substitute for oil and butter.
Check each individual recipe when you want to substitute; depending on the other ingredients you may still need some traditional fats.
