When it comes to eating healthily we completely understand that it isn't always easy. In today's lifestyle with constant pressures from work, family and social life it is often healthy eating that we let slip; opting for the easy options at the supermarket like ready meals or finding that we turn to comfort food for ease.

Just because you have decided to lead a healthier lifestyle doesn't mean that all of your favourite meals are a no-go though! Here are our favourite ways to bring back those recipes that you love!

ICE CREAM

Who misses ice cream? EVERYONE!! Don't worry though we have a healthy alternative to the sugary shop bought ice cream that will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth and leave you feeling virtuous.

EasyLoss' FAVOURITE: Banana Ice Cream!

Yes... you can actually make ice cream with bananas! All you need to do is chop up a banana and freeze it for 3-4 hours then blend with a dash of your choice of milk and that's it.

For other flavours: If you fancy a more holiday feel and want some strawberry, chocolate or even matcha flavoured ice-cream you can achieve that too! Blend your bananas with strawberries, cacao powder or dates and matcha green tea powder and you'll be sure to be extremely satisfied.

WHITE RICE!

Oh carbs, carbs, carbs! Why is it that we're always craving white rice or pasta? It seems like even the healthier gluten free options are STILL not that great for you. So what can we do?

 EASYLOSS' FAVOURITE: CAULIFLOWER RICE

Here is our favourite alternative - swap your white rice for cauliflower rice. It really is simple - All you need to do is blend up raw cauliflower and then heat in a wok with a little bit of coconut oil for 3-4 minutes until warmed and soft.

PASTA!

Courgette Spaghetti healthy alternatives

We all love some pasta- it is exactly the same as white rice isn't it! Especially our old fave - spaghetti bolognaise! But is it totally off the table on a healthy lifestyle? NOPE...

EASYLOSS FAVOURITE: COURGETTI / BOODLES

Another, EL must have on the shopping list is Courgetti which is made by spiralising or grating a courgette and then heating it until soft in a wok or microwave. You can also go for butternut squash noodles as well if you prefer the taste and do it the exact same way.

It is not only extremely delicious but it is healthy and filling too. So, next time you whip out your favourite spaghetti Bolognese recipe swap that pasta for vegetables. If you can't or don't have time to be spiralising don't panic they are available at most supermarkets for only a couple of pounds too!
