Sometimes a big desire for fast food appears, although we are aware that it is not good for our health. What should you do when you find yourself in a situation like this? Simple – find an appropriate replacement.

Choosing healthier alternatives in fast food

Instead of banana split…

Try sliced bananas with little whipped cream, sprinkled with crumbs of caramel and crushed almonds. Potassium in bananas helps to maintain the fluid balance in the body to avoid dehydration, and almonds will give you helpful fats that keep the beauty of the skin.

Instead of apple pie…

Try baked apples. Bake two small apples and then add a low-fat cream and a little cinnamon on top. On this way you get a flavor very similar to the one that the pie crust gives, which has a lot of butter in it.

Instead of salty and crunchy snacks…

Try some cheese crackers and a portion of pistachios (about 30 grams or 44 pistachios). On this way you’ll cut half the calories and satisfy your need for something salty and crunchy.

Instead of chips and sauce…

Try wholegrain snacks with humus. The humus is a rich sauce of protein, and the wholegrain snacks have a lower percentage of saturated fat than potato chips.

Instead of piece of pizza…

Try to make yourself a homemade pizza with integral flour for extra fiber intake, with low-fat mozzarella to reduce the unhealthy saturated fat, some vegetables for additional antioxidants and proteins, such as cooked shrimp or chicken slices of meat.

Instead of fries…

Try baked potatoes. Dice the potatoes in half, sprinkle them with olive oil and bake them at a temperature of 220 degrees, approximately 30 minutes or until they get a golden color.

Instead of sweets…

Try to make yourself a cocktail snacks. Fill a mixture of almonds, dried fruit and small pieces of dark chocolate in small bags. On this way you’ll always have a balanced snack with all the necessary nutrients that will satisfy your need for sweets.
