Here are 5 tips for adapting recipes:
#1. In recipes that require sugar, try reducing the amount by one third.

#4. Try a different cut of meat, ie use ground chicken for pork/beef.

One of the best ways to change your eating habits is to be mindful while you are eating.
Remember, your belly is 15 minutes behind your brain.
Focus on the food you are eating. What does it smell like? What does it taste like? Do not eat in front of a screen, allow yourself to experience the food, pay attention to when you are satisfied and save the rest for later.
