Makeover Your Favorite Recipes

October 17, 2018

 As we continue to talk about the ins and outs of meal planning and creating nourishing recipes to fuel your week, it’s important to remember that each of us has to make meal planning personalized. Food takes on a different meaning for everyone and has roots in our culture, background, and upbringing; this sometimes making it difficult for us to change the way we eat and view food. The wonderful part about meal planning is that it can easily be made your own and adapted to fit the flavors and meals you already love. Old recipe favorites can easily be altered with simple ingredient swaps – leaving you with a healthier, more nourishing version of those classic meals you’ve always loved.

 

Here are some of the most problematic ingredients that can easily be swapped out and change your recipes into new, nourishing favorites!
