Transition from the Standard American Diet to a plant based diet, is not only smart, but delicious!  As you make your way down the road to health understand that the shift towards plant based doesn’t mean deprivation.

Enjoy these healthier versions of the naughty “3 P’s”, Potato Chips, Pop and Pizza.

 

Have a Potato Chip Obsession? Try Baked Zucchini Chips

1 zucchini (or more)
Seasoning of your choice (Garlic, paprika, chili powder, use your imagination)
Preheat oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or nonstick foil. Slice the zucchini and sprinkle with seasonings of your choice. Bake 45 minutes. Rotate baking sheet, and bake an additional 30-50 minutes, until chips are crisped to your liking.

 


Soda Substitution
   Wanting to cut back or cut out soda?  Good!  You wouldn’t eat 22 packets of sugar, so why would you drink them?  Not to mention aspartame, phosphoric acid and artificial dyes. For a healthier substitution try club soda with fresh fruit. Try freezing the fruit in ice cube trays to add frozen natural flavor

 

 

Pizza Pizza! My favorite guilty pleasure is pizza!  For a quick basic pizza, use flatbreads with tomato sauce and topped with veggies, and simply skip the cheese & meat.

A fabulous and healthy alternative: top your whole grain dough with spinach curry sauce, eggplant, roasted garlic, and fresh basil.

 

 

 


Upgrade
 the pizza again by adding added onions, tomatoes, chard, mushrooms, peppers, black olives, black pepper, nutritional yeast, Daiya cheese, and/or sprouts.
