2019 Most-Popular Healthy Recipes


Use only small amounts of high salt ingredients such as soy and fish sauce, stock cubes and salted meats like salami and bacon. Avoid large amounts of added sugars, for example, table sugar, honey, fructose and golden syrup. Include plenty of vegetables and legumes if the recipe is for a main meal dish. Specify wholegrain ingredients e.g. wholemeal flour, rolled oats, barley, brown rice. You can also improve the nutritional profile of a recipe by substituting high saturated fat, salt or sugar ingredients with healthier alternatives. For instance sour cream in recipes can be replaced with low fat natural yoghurt instead, light evaporated milk can be used instead of cream or coconut cream, and fruit purees can add sweetness and moisture to replace some of the fat and sugar used in cakes.
