This weeks healthy eating tips from our dietitian Tracey Higgins:
"What is better than rugging up and enjoying some comfort food when it’s cold. And these delicious winter eating tips are healthy as well.
For a lighter, healthier lower calorie meal reduce or avoid the pasta and add extra vegies or sauce.
For an even healthier boost add ¼ cup of red lentils and or diced carrot and peas
Not sure what to take to work? See Tracey's 14 healthy snack idea's here.
For a tasty added extra try drizzling a slice of sourdough bread with olive oil. This way you skip the argument of butter vs margarine altogether.
Healthy Soup approved by Tracey
For a delicious, filling and healthy meal that I like to make at home have a look at this tomato and vegetable soup at taste.com.au: Delicious tomato and vegetable soup
To make the soup even healthier follow the tips above by reducing the pasta content, adding more sauce and adding a ¼ cup of red lentils, diced carrot and peas.
Have a fantastic week and remember my tips on emotional eating (click here).
