Eating healthy for many people means giving up their favourite snack or meal, but it doesn’t have to be so. If you are one of these people, you will be surprised to find out how you can enjoy your guilty pleasures without the guilt.

Cookies are the favourite of many people. It is a heavenly snack to enjoy with a glass of milk in the afternoon. They are very rich in sugar and fat which makes it unhealthy. But here’s how you can make it healthy. Choose a sugar substitute like honey or agave nectar and use oatmeal instead of plain flour. Adding fruits and nuts also makes it more nutritious. If you want to create a version of chocolate chip cookies, opt for loving earth chocolate which is organic.
A good movie can never be enjoyed completely without a bowl of popcorn. But popcorn is not an unhealthy food. It is rich in fibre and protein, also a small quantity can easily fill you up. The key is to stay away from the popcorn sold at movie theatres which is rich in sodium. So try to make it on your own at home. You can control the amount of salt and butter you add. And if you have a sweet tooth drizzle some honey over it and your good to go.
Cereal is an easy breakfast option and some of us are so used to it. It is a habit that is hard to break out of.

Cereals usually eaten with milk also can be a great source of calcium, so never think about giving it up for good. Most of us have got used to beating ourselves for indulging in these treats. But you don’t have to any longer. Almost all your favourite food can be turned into a healthier choice. It’s only a matter of finding the right ingredients and preparing it the right way. So look around and make yourself aware of all the ways in which you can do this. It will be worth the trouble.
