Salads. They don’t have to be bland and boring. There are so many fun ingredients out there to jazz up your greens. Switch it up from spinach, to arugula, to bibb lettuce. Add in toppings like beets, craisins, walnuts, and feta. Or go south of the border with this delicious chopped chicken taco salad featured on All You.

Wraps. One of the simplest things to cut out is sliced bread. It may not be EASY but there are several lower calorie options including spinach wraps or lettuce leaves that are just as tasty if you give them a chance! Lettuce wraps are one of my favorite things to make and they’re surprisingly simple Check out the Mediterranean Chicken Lettuce Wraps on MarthaStewart.com.

Smoothies. If you’re not a morning eater, smoothies are a perfect energy boost to start your day. Add a supplement of peanut butter for energy or avocado to get that creamy texture.
