Updating food recipes, or food hacking, is the latest trend. Taking one food or style of cooking and replacing it with a more updated version is the basic definition of food hacking.
For instance, if you want to eat healthier, lose some weight or just renovate your eating habits, you can try these six ways hackers have found to cut carbs:
1) Have open-face sandwiches with 1 slice bread.
2) Start your meals with protein to satisfy your hunger quickly.
3) Use lettuce to wrap in a sandwich, not bread.
4) Have puffed oats for breakfast in place of oatmeal.
5) Use cauliflower instead of potatoes in “mashed potatoes.”
6) When eating pizza, have thin-crust instead of regular or thick crust.
To eat healthier in for other reasons, here are eight tips that will cut calories, but you’ll never know they’re missing.
1) Trade ice cream for sherbet.
2) Take a paper towel and blot the oil off pizza.
3) Eat bagel flats instead of whole bagels.
4) Order sauces and dressings on the side tp add as you go.
5) Drink unsweetened almond milk; it has half the calories.
6) Eat light fish instead of dark fish like salmon, which has more calories.
7) Bake or broil everything. Frying has more calories and harmful toxins.
8) Eat quinoa instead of rice; it also is a complete protein.
So you can see that food hacking transforms the way to think about the food too. Eggs get so traditional when all you do is scramble and fry them every morning. Try some of these egg hacks that will get your day started on a new note while adding protein to your diet.
1) Fry eggs on pre-fried onion rings.
2) Make hard-boiled eggs in the oven like Elton Brown on Food Network.
3) Cook egg omelets in the waffle iron.
4) Microwave an egg in a cup for one minute.
5) For a large crowd, crack and bake eggs in muffin tins.
All of these tips are designed to help you and your family eat healthier, so choose the ones that fit your lifestyle and use these food hackers tips.
