Chicken and Broccoli Chinese Fakeout

Chinese has always been one of those foods that I’d gorge myself on and then hate myself afterward. Literally, it’s like I just can’t control myself when there are crab rangoons involved. 🙅🏼

So instead of giving in to temptation, I whipped up a little “Chinese Fakeout” instead! I got the same flavors without all of the added fat and carbs. (Minus the rangoons, of course. I’ll save those for a day when I’m planning a cheat.)

Struggle with wanting to eat healthier but still loving some of your favorites? Enjoy a little Chinese Fakeout with this easy recipe!

Weekend Food Swaps to Help You Stay on Track

It’s the weekend – holla! Anyway, you know what that means we’re talking about on the blog today. That’s right, healthy living even on the weekend. Today I want to shift our focus a little and look more specifically at our weekend food choices. I know there is nothing better than waking up, pulling out the griddle, and whipping up a batch of homemade pancakes (except if someone else makes them for you…) or maybe a bowlful of decadent ice cream with a homemade brownie on top. Whose mouth isn’t watering right now?

I don’t know if I am speaking for everyone, but I know the weekend means paying a little less attention to my food choices and a lot more attention to having fun, which often means, come Monday, I am regretting a few of my “splurges.” Hence today’s post on healthy weekend food swaps. Hopefully by sharing these food options with you, it’ll encourage me to make better choices, too. I promise you with these options, no one will feel cheated, except maybe my Monday morning regret… 😉Weekend Health Food Swaps
