Healthy eating is the buzzword of 2017; so naturally — anything that has the word diet, detox or gluten-free grabs instant attention.

But before you turn your pantry into a self-created torture cell OR jump onto any unreliable fad diet, take a moment and give your daily food intake a flashback. There must have been at least 10 instances where you could have avoided the extra calories — by simply making a healthy choice. For instance:

You could have sautéed the veggies in olive oil instead of butter.
You could have eaten grilled chicken instead of fried.
And you could have eaten mashed cauliflower instead of mashed potatoes.

Eating healthy doesn’t mean giving up all the edible loves of your life. It’s about making smart choices that help you maintain an overall balanced eating pattern, even when dining out.
