7 Healthy Homemade Alternatives to Common Processed Foods

7 Healthy Homemade Alternatives to Common Processed Foods

Make these flavorful foods at home and you can save money while eating healthy and responsibly.

Tomato based products – When you make your own pasta sauce, ketchup and salsa, you dictate exactly what healthy ingredients you are using. When you purchase these tomato-based items at a grocery store, they have likely gone through an extreme manufacturing process.

Sauces and dressings – We mentioned in the last section about eating out how you can choose healthy oil and vinegar as a salad dressing over processed

options. There are also dozens, if not hundreds, of great tasting dressings and sauces you can make right at home, using healthy ingredients. This also means never purchasing expensive processed sauces or dressings again.

Granola and energy bars – There are multiple healthy recipes online for making your own granola bars. The same goes for energy boosting bars, which you can make for up to 50% less money than purchasing the unhealthy processed options at your supermarket.

Guacamole – This is another “made at home” processed food alternative which is not only healthier when you create it in your own kitchen, but also less expensive than the store-bought variety.

Yogurt – Do-it-yourself yogurt is so much healthier than the products offered at your favorite supermarket. Some yogurt can be healthy off-the-shelf, but most of it is extremely processed.

Bread – You can purchase a versatile bread machine, or simply make healthy and incredible tasting bread varieties in cooking tins in your oven. The list of healthy ingredients you can incorporate into homemade bread, like whole grains and fruits, is virtually endless. Ezekiel bread is also a good alternative to regular breads as it is made of sprouted grains. There are many flavors to chose from.

 

Soup – Store-bought soup is notoriously high in sodium. If you are crunched for time, you can slow cook several servings of healthy, tasty, homemade soup in a slow cooker and freeze for instant enjoyment later.
