50 simple kitchen life hacks to make food much healthier

These 50 tips will help you to eat only healthy meals and keep you feeling your best. 
1. Use a spray bottle for oil. To put exactly the amount of oil that you need in a frying pan, use a cooking spray. You can easily buy these in any supermarket. If you don’t have such a utensil, use a wide pastry brush.
2. Fry with broth, not oil. Frying with broth is one more way to make your meals healthier. Two tablespoons of any broth will be enough. Although there is also some fat in broth, it’s much healthier than oil.
3. Use natural yogurt instead of store-bought sauces. Forget about the sauces you buy in supermarkets, because there are enormous amounts of additives and preservatives in them. You can easily make a homemade sauce from yogurt.
4. Add sesame seeds to your diet. Sesame is rich in calcium. Garnish your salads and other dishes with sesame seeds to make them healthy and visually appealing.
5. Cook in the oven. Forget about frying if you have decided to lead a healthy lifestyle. Baking is one …

ENERGY BITES

Full of many healthy goodies, peanut butter energy balls are exactly what you want to be snacking on! 
Introducing – The easiest snack you’ll ever make!  Made with all healthy ingredients and refined- sugar free.  These energy balls will satisfy all your late afternoon cravings.
This same recipe exists already on the blog, deep down in the archives.  Actually one of the first things I ever shared here on The Well Floured Kitchen.  I had made square energy balls, which is still an option.  Yet, most people are looking for round energy balls, so I thought it might be time for an update.
I did change one thing about them.  The amount of honey has been reduced to 1/3 a cup.  I was so happy to find that they are still sweet enough to appease my nagging sweet tooth.  Also, did I mention the hint of chocolate?  I used a couple tablespoons of my Navitas cacao powder – my favorite and I highly recommend it.  But these can definitely be made with any cocoa powder you have available.
They are so sim…

HEALTHY SPRING RECIPES ~ TULIP TOMATOES, (MOTHERS DAY BRUNCH OR GARDEN PARTY RECIPE IDEA)

Healthy Spring Recipes ~ TULIP TOMATOES
Do you need something pretty for  Mothers Day Brunch, or a Garden Party?  These beautiful tulip tomatoes serve as both a eye catching table decor and a yummy veggie tray at the same time.  I love the colors and how fresh and healthy they look, almost to pretty to eat. To make a mixed bouquet you could use some yellow grape tomatoes too. These look great on a white serving tray.
INGREDIENTS Yields: 15 tulips, Ready in 30 minutes 15 Large Cherry Tomatoes 16 stalks of chives 8 oz. cream cheese 1 cucumber 1 teaspoon dried basil Salt and pepper
PREPARATION 1. With stem side down, cut a cross in the top of each cherry tomato (about 3?4 down the tomato).
2. Using a spoon (grapefruit spoon works very well) to gently scrape out the tomato seeds.

HEALTHY FIRECRACKER POPCICLES

Yup.  this totally happened.  And you know what?  these were actually really easy to make.
These healthy Firecracker popcicles have no artificial colors, no added sugar and can be made vegan.  I used cows milk, but any type of milk can be used.   The only sweetener is fruit.
I am afraid that these aren’t exactly like the real thing.  You see, I have never seen a blue raspberry in my life.  So I used blueberries instead.
If you want to make homemade popcicles this summer, I highly suggest buying some silicone popcicle molds.  They are not expensive, and you can get really creative with them.   I use these.
When I made these popcicles, I made 1 layer at a time, and then froze that layer.  Each layer only took a few minutes to make.  So, all in all, these pops didn’t require much prep time.
If I were to make these again, I would add some lemon juice to the blueberry mixture.   Also, the red layer does not have to be strawberry.  It can be cherry or raspberry.
