Well, it is April 1st in a few hours, and we are embarking on this April Challenge train. This week, the challenge is to not eat any fried foods. So anything fried in oil is out of reach this week, including eggs fried in oil, stew or sauces fried in oil, chicken and meats fried in oil, etc.
Of course there are substitutes you can use for all these foods. Adura, the health blogger, has posted a great substitute stew (Nigerian tomato sauce) recipe where you use chicken stock as the base for the stew. Check out her recipe here. You can also use coconut oil.
Why are we doing this? This week's challenge is meant to help us think of healthier subsitutes for some of the foods we eat every day. Let me know your progress on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram!
Cheers Eights & Weights!
