Turning Unhealthy, Healthy
This is the final post in the series in an effort to convince Safeway CEO, Steven Byrd to hire food concierges in every Safeway store across America. In this last post I want to talk in more detail about taking our favorite unhealthy recipes and making them better for your overall being.
The first I want to talk about is fast food. Just because you are craving a burger and fries does not necessarily mean that you cannot have that. Just don’t run out to the nearest McDonald’s to satisfy your craving. What about making one at home? Buy some ground beef and put it on the BBQ. I bet it would taste better than fast food, and would definitely be healthier than having one at a restaurant. Now for the fries. I have a bit of a french fry addiction myself, but there is hope, we don’t have to give them up entirely. It is simple to make them at home with this recipe for baked french fries. So much healthier than the deep fried ones I love so much from In ‘N Out.
And what about instead of the caloric pumpkin beverage at Starbucks, you make your own low cal one at home. There are a lot of ways to cut calories without cutting taste, it just takes a little research.
If there was someone in your local grocery store to help you figure out healthy alternatives to the foods we already love we could start to make little changes to the issues surrounding food and diet in this country.
