In a new post on her app, the reality star, who dropped more than 35 lbs. since her breakup with Lamar Odom, shares secrets to her diet. Though she confesses that eating healthy can be hard at first, she credits her weight loss and bangin’ revenge bod to making simple and small adjustments to her meals.
“I’m the first to admit that changing your diet is hard AF. I feel so much better when I eat right though so it’s definitely worth it!” Kardashian writes. “My biggest tip for starting off strong is to swap out some common foods you eat for healthier versions.”
So, what does she nosh on these days? According to the 32-year-old, she now substitutes fatty condiments like cream cheese and mayonnaise with hummus and low fat Greek yogurt respectively.
“Instead of serving a cream cheese based dip at a party, set out high protein hummus. Bonus points if you serve with veggies instead of crackers,” she notes, adding, “Mayo is really high in fat and sodium, two no-nos. You can make dressings, dips, or tuna salad with low fat greek yogurt instead. It’s just as creamy and delicious!”
For carbs, she recommends swapping out bagels for whole wheat English muffins — “they taste just as great on a breakfast sandwich or toasted and topped with peanut butter” — and white pasta for “vegetable noodles made from zucchini or squash.”
Kardashian adds that she skips red meat and potatoes all together and opts for dishes like mashed cauliflower and baked kale chips. She also prefers leafy greens like spinach as opposed to iceberg lettuce.
As for sweet treats, Kardashian stays away from processed sugar and artificial ingredients, opting to snack on a “homemade trail mix made of plain popcorn and unsalted almonds” instead of granola bars.
“If you’re craving a frozen sweet treat, eat frozen bananas covered in dark chocolate which has way less calories, fat and sugar than ice cream,” she advises. “You can make these at home yourself too!”
