Cheat Eat Your Way To A Healthy Heart

By Fiona Hatting on April 01, 2016

Dieting is difficult. Oh, it starts off easily enough - especially if there is some or other medical concern, like wanting to avoid ill heart health, behind your decision - but keeping it up? Now that's much easier said than done.

The reason usually lies in the fact that most diets are all about denial: all the focus is on what you're not allowed to eat. OK, fair enough - if overindulging in saturated fats and sugar is messing with your health, of course you should stop! On the other hand, though, spending the rest of your life in a constant state panic, feeling either jealous whenever you see someone else eating something that you enjoy or hating yourself because just that once you gave in then, honestly, you're going to stress yourself right into a heart attack anyway.

So now what? Well, here's the thing: being and eating Healthy does not mean living off of dry salads and steamed meats. All that you need to do is to replace the really bad stuff with better options (see the list below for some ideas) and remember that moderation is key.

  1. Replace vegetable oil with coconut oil wherever possible. It's got a really high smoking point, so it's just as good for frying and, don't worry, it won't affect or alter the taste of the dish in any way.
  2. Though we know that there are other grains that are very Healthy, there are times when only rice will do (think yummy curries). All that you need to do is replace the processed bleached variety with wild rice (which is also full of fibre, protein and vitamins) and you're good to go.
  3. Substitute sugar-laden, fizzy drinks and fruit juices with cold tea. Water is indeed wonderful but it can get a bit boring, so do yourself a favour and start exploring the incredible range of tea types and flavours available at practically every supermarket these days. Yummm...
  4. Instead of reaching for the mayonnaise, rather grab some sour cream or yoghurt. If you like, you can spruce it up by adding some crushed garlic, mustard, honey, or spices like paprika etc.
  5. When having your morning cup of coffee, try to replace some (or all) of the sugar that you might have been adding with a little vanilla extract, cinnamon or nutmeg. It's absolutely amazing!
  6. White and soft cheeses are, in general, a lot lower in fat than yellow cheeses like cheddar or Gouda. If you do have to use a hard cheese, a good way of lowering the 'unhealthy' factor is to opt for a stronger one, like aged cheddar or parmesan, so that you are able to use less in order to achieve the same flavour punch.

A fantastic way in which to make sure that you're getting more of the good and less of the bad is to do the bulk of your grocery shopping in the outside aisles of the supermarket where the fresh foods are, instead of the middle isles where you almost always find the more processed goods. Happy eating!
