Eating better looks great on paper, but what about that first time you crave Shake Shack (SHAK) ? For many, it comes down to making a choice between a burger and bikini season.
What if that choice could be made a little easier? Well, technology has found a way to cheat the system and allow you to have some of your fatty favorites without the heart attack. While some of these options still aren't as healthy as straight-up kale and might not produce exactly the same grease-induced euphoria, they'll help keep the cravings at bay.
Cut the carbs
Pasta, beautiful pasta. The staple of every college kid's existence tends to stay a crowd favorite throughout adulthood. But just because it once got you through midterms doesn't mean it's going to help you fit into your jeans. A cup of the average spaghetti contains about 38 grams of carbs....ouch. And that doesn't account for the four helpings of garlic bread that accompany it.
Break every Italian mother's heart and green up your favorite pasta dish. This 5-blade spiralizer from Breiftons can turn your favorite vegetable (hopefully you have one) into your favorite noodle. From carrots to cucumbers to zucchini, you're pretty much only limited by your own imagination. Now you can finally skip the salad.
