2. Make a big, double batch of soup for dinner this week.

making a double batch will allow you to then freeze half as leftovers for later this winter. Then just reheat and eat later when it’s (inevitably) too cold to leave the house. Your future self will thank you.

3. Whip up a simple homemade salad dressing.

Make a healthier alternative such as this one with avocado and protein-packed Greek yogurt. Avocados contain more potassium than bananas and are loaded with fiber while the Greek yogurt contain B12 and probiotics to help keep you regular!

4. Replace the occasional soda for seltzer cut with fruit juice.

Hydrating, easy to make, and with way less sugar than soda. According to a 10-year study, individuals who drink two or more sodas a day have a 500 percent waist expansion in comparison to those who do not drink soda!

5. Swap potato chips for Tex Mex–style popcorn.

Tons of flavor with fewer calories. This version is sprinkled with homemade taco seasoning — a spicy, salty mix that includes chili powder, garlic powder, and paprika. Omitting the butter and calories which butter has will make this a wise choice when binge watching a Netflix marathon!

6. Satisfy a sweet tooth with one of these better-for-you desserts.

There are three-ingredient recipes for desserts including frozen yogurt bark, strawberry lemon sorbet, and sweet potato–chocolate frosting to replace all the sugar and calories you've been used to consuming. I like to add prepared instant coffee made srrong to my chocolate frosting to give it that kick it needs!

7. Trade out the tortillas on Taco Tuesday.

Dig into a one-pot taco skillet instead. Try this lighter version — loaded with lean ground turkey, diced tomatoes, and greens. And use that cast iron skillet instead of an aluminum or the old pan flaking off the teflon!
