Making healthier food choices can sometimes sound overwhelming or boring (or both!), but a better diet is key to weight loss, to fueling your best workouts and to making permanent healthy lifestyle changes for you and your family.

So where do you start?  There are plenty of healthy recipes to try but we’ve listed our favorite basic updates you can make to your kitchen and existing cooking routines that will help get you on the right path.

For instance, switching from cows milk to almond milk in cooking and baking doesn’t require any change in measurements but saves you calories.

Coconut oil is a good source of saturated fat and stays solid at room temperature so it’s an easy replacement for butter.

If you bake a spaghetti squash for about an hour, the inside can be scraped out and used as noodles; an excellent way to add vegetables and lighten up pasta dishes that can feel heavy.
