Healthy eating doesn’t have to mean depriving yourself, but it does mean making smarter choices.

Make these substitutions for a healthier meal, the American Heart Association advises:

  • Try recipe changes that provide a similar flavor and texture. For instance, swap 1 cup of heavy cream with 1/2 cup of low-fat yogurt.
  • When shopping for snacks, opt for those that are baked rather than fried. Choose snacks lower in salt.
  • Go grilled, rather than fried, for dishes at a restaurant.
  • Add more color to your meals by skipping fries and adding a salad or apple slices.
