4. Avoid toppings
We often add numerous toppings to our favorite dishes and that is the biggest mistake. Your food can be really healthy unless you serve it with toppings. Salad is the most popular dish we cook daily. Unfortunately, we rarely think that all those ingredients like cheese, meats and croutons may be an enormous source of calories. Make sure you add no more than one topping to your salad and use steamed vegetables as an alternative to fried foods. You should be especially careful with dressings while making salads, make them lighter and reduce the amount you generally add.
