Foods with stronger colors like sweet potatoes have a higher nutritional value than traditional white potatoes. When baking potatoes, stick to those that add color to your plate. With diced vegetables, salsa and plain Greek yoghurt as a substitute for sour cream!
. 5 Rice
Consider using wild rice in dishes that normally require white or brown rice, eg. French fries, soups or salad recipes. Wild rice, like quinoa, has a slightly higher protein content, which makes it nutritionally physiological to white or brown rice. It is also an excellent source of fiber!

Paleo recipes know what's wrong with pancakes. Almond and coconut flours increase nutritional value while remaining gluten-free. If you have not added any refined sugar, just add your naturally sweet maple syrup. Paleo not dig? Try our 3-ingredient banana pancakes instead!
Who says biscuits can not be healthy? You just have to know what to look for. I personally look for recipes with sugar from natural sources like bananas, honey or maple syrup.

Do not miss out on our delicious breakfast cookies recipe for apple butter oatmeal that you'll love for sure.
Are you cute? Or tasty? Simple Greek yogurt is the ultimate substitute for dips on ranch, sour cream or cream cheese. Try this Greek yogurt spinach and artichoke dip or this healthy and sweet dip for fruit!
12th Grilled cheese
Simple and uncomplicated: Grilled cheese is a weekday. For picky eaters, use white bread (probably with a sliced crust and butter) and 1-2 slices of cheese. For the adventurous, use wholegrain bread, aged cheddar or gouda, and a bit of jam as a sweetie! Your options are endless. Cooking Light covered us with surprisingly lightly grilled cheeses.
