No-Egg Eggnog

Sure, supermarkets are packed with packaged foods that make cooking easier than ever. But many come at a cost of nutrition and flavour. Instead, revamp these iconic packaged items with a few healthy twists to make them more saintly than sinful.

There are few people who would yearn for the days when we had to chase after woolly mammoths and struggle with fire in the rain to eat. But in many ways our food supply has become much too convenient. The supermarket is saturated with packaged foods that most people simply drop in their shopping carts without giving much thought to whether they’re something they could make themselves from scratch. Yet, a reliance on these not-so-healthy hands-off items can give your diet a sucker punch. Enter: DIY recipes. From frozen meals to some of the most well-loved holiday eats and sips, it turns out that home cooks can indeed make their own versions of many of the most iconic packaged foods on store shelves. And in the process you’ll give them a nutritional upgrade, save a bunch of money, and do your part to cut down on excess packaging. Start by giving these guilty pleasures a nutritious and delicious makeover.
