Eating healthy appears to be one of the most laborious tasks especially when there are so many unhealthy options that tempt your taste buds but can prove to be a bane for your skin, hair, stomach and overall health.

Dieticians can give you a whole list of what to avoid and what to eat when you are trying to eat healthily, but what they don’t tell you is how to get yourself to choose the healthier options.

Looking at a plate full of greens or plain, simple fare may make you rethink about your resolve to eat more healthy and the constant temptation to gorge on fast or junk food can actually hamper your resolve to live a healthier life.

However, no one ever said that healthy food should be tasteless or not tempting. If you are trying to eat healthily and you want to please your taste buds as well, then here are some of the most healthy foods and the different ways you cook them. Now you can snack anytime without feeling guilty.

Fatty Fishes

Fatty fishes are a very good option to keep you full for long periods of time. Loaded with protein, fatty acids, and many other nutrients, fatty fishes are low on carbs and are an excellent option to satisfy your taste buds and stay healthy at the same time. Some of the fatty fishes like salmon (rawas), Pomfret, herring (hilsa), sole, tilapia etc. are easily available in the market. If you have a liking for seafood then clams, squids, shrimps, lobsters, crabs are the best options for you.

You can bake or grill them with just salt, pepper and lemon juice, pair it with brown rice and treat yourselves to a mouthwatering fish dish.

If you are not a fan of any kind of fish or seafood, then try eggs.

Eggs are high in protein and low on carbs. You can have a whole hard-boiled egg, or you can pair blanched beans with a half-boiled egg or go for a poached egg if that’s your choice. A simple egg salad can also keep you full for a long time.

No matter how you decide to have eggs, they will prove to be beneficial for your health and will help you manage your weight. Eating at least one egg per day can do wonders for your skin and eyesight as well. Interestingly almost all nutrients are found in the egg yolk, so if you have a plan of ditching the yolk and want to go for only egg whites then think again!

Leafy Greens

Leafy green vegetables are high in fiber and low on carbs. Spinach, kale (karam saag), amaranth leaves (chaulai saag), ong choy (naadi saag) mustard leaves (sarso saag) etc., are some of the leafy greens that are easily available in India and you can get them in any supermarket. Leafy greens might sound like a boring option but surprisingly they can be cooked in a tasty way. Blanch and stir-fry them with some minced garlic and red pepper flakes in some olive oil. It can be a nice and healthy side-dish with brown rice.

Cruciferous Vegetables

Cabbage (green and purple), broccoli and cauliflower are some cruciferous vegetables that can be easily found at your local grocery store or supermarket. They are high in protein, fiber, and other nutrients but low on carbs. You can blanch and stir-fry them or cook them whichever way you want (except deep-frying them of course) to make a healthy and filling meal.

Finally, if you want something that is healthy and tasty at the same time, then stop fretting as we have the perfect solution to all your diet problems-Keeros Roasted Supersnacks.
