Cooking healthy doesn’t mean that you have to cut out carbohydrates. Eating the right food has a lot to do with your cooking method; using less artificial products and minimizing the amount of ingredients is key to creating fresh and simple meals.
When I want to eat healthier, yet satisfy my taste buds, I infuse healthier types of foods, rather than neglect myself from eating them at all. I generally find no taste difference between a regular or lighter product.
