Even trimmed down, pizza can still taste like a splurge--and it's surprisingly quick to prepare. Use a whole wheat pizza crust recipe for more nutrients (including fiber and calcium), then go easy on the cheese, and sprinkle pizza with healthier toppings:
- Canadian bacon
- Turkey sausage
- Sundried tomatoes
- Artichoke hearts
- Freshly grated parmesan cheese
Get that delicious crunch of fried chicken without all the fat by coating with tasty combinations of herbs, bread crumbs, and parmesan--then, bake to crispy perfection for an easy dinner!
Choosing lean meats like ground turkey reduce the fat in your burger by 65%, and opting for a chicken or veggie burger will knock the fat down even more. Gotta have fries? Try these baked french fries that contain a fraction of the fat found in deep fried versions.
As long as you don't get too crazy with the cheese, and make sure to choose low-fat options for sour cream (light sour cream or plain yogurt), it's easy to make healthy Mexican dinners. Even a little guacamole is okay--dip with these baked tortilla chips.
