Read more at: http://www.ivillage.com/13-smart-tricks-healthy-eating/3-b-61225#61463 I am not a fan of sodas but I like their variation. I love salads too, but tend to eat them at the end of my meal like a desert, isn't that the European way? Ohhhh I do the carrot trick too and the cauliflower one :D

I wrote down two of their suggestions....

Breading...1/2 oat bran, 1/2 ground almond meal
Oat bran is gluten free to reduce inflammation in the body.
This sounds like a good way to get breaded foods occasionally.
I might bake instead of fry or only use a tiny bit of canola oil in a non-stick pan to fry.

Instead of peanut butter...2 parts almond butter, 1 part honey
Or, what I would do is heat coconut sugar with a tiny bit of water to it's thickish liquid form and use that instead of honey.

Good ideas!!

Some interesting tips.  Most of the time I already replace half the oil in a recipe with apple sauce.  Have taken frozen fruit before and blended it with skim milk with a little added sugar for a semi-healthy sweet treat, but have not tried it yet  with yogurt.

  1. I do not drink soda very often, then it is usally ginger ale.I prefer water with lemon or lime or unsweetened iced tea.Funny, I got in the habit of eating salad at the end of meal growing up.I have used the eggs/egg white suggestion for years-makes great omelets.  Also when baking a cake mix  you can substitute extra egg white & toss out the yolks and substitute all the oil for applesauce. It is yummy.Also great using a can of pumpkin- not pumkin pie mix- no eggs or oil needed!
