How nutritionist Erin Palinski-Wade does a cheat day!
1. Craving chocolate?
Choose dark chocolate over milk chocolate for a boost of flavonoids. Flavonoids are antioxidants with heart health benefits.
2. Need a pizza fix?
Opt for a whole grain crust & load up on the veggie toppings.
3. Is that burger calling your name?
Select grass-fed beef which tends to be lower in overall fat content.
4. Have a sweet tooth?
Try a lollipop over chewy candies. It takes longer to eat, helping with portion control.
5. Salty and crunchy?
Choose air popped popcorn which contain less than 100 calories in 3 cups & provides a good source of fiber and antioxidants.
Enjoying a less nutritious food once in a while can be part of a healthy diet. As long as you enjoy it in moderation.
