5 healthy foods that taste like heaven
October 18, 2012 §
Eating healthy is easy when you have these staples in your kitchen. Recipe possibilities are endless–must haves in my book.
Frozen bananas. They taste like
candy ice cream. period…especially if they are almost too ripe. Have bananas that are covered in brown spots? QUICK–peel them, chunk them, throw them in a baggie, and freeze. Blend them up with greek yogurt and a little almond milk and you have the richest tasting “milkshake” ever.
Canned pumpkin. NOM. NOM. NOM. Very seasonal I know, but I use it September through May pretty much. Soup, muffins, pasta sauce (recipe coming soon!), smoothies, etc. Can never get enough, tastes so good.
Avocado. Enough said.
Light coconut milk. Again, soups, stews, curries, desserts, etc. So wonderfully rich, tastes so wonderful, but is redonks healthy & vegan.
Toasted coconut. Between its milk, its oil, and its flesh, coconut is the king of richness. So delicious…..(get it!?)
Greek yogurt. It’s a little ridiculous how often I buy these big tubs. My ultimate staple in the kitchen–always use it in place of sour cream, but also of course in smoothies, desserts, cold soups, etc. This photo is not my favorite brand–if I get my pick, I love Fage.
