While for some, dieting is about deprivation, for me, it’s all about perspective and a few simple swaps — which unhealthy foods to purge, and which healthy foods to indulge in.

That’s right, I used the words “indulge” and “diet” in the same sentence!

And it’s true.

A diet can be all about indulging, if you’re doing it right.

Are you intrigued?

Here are 7 healthy foods to indulge in while you’re dieting.2

1. Fruit Smoothies

If they’re made properly, real fruit smoothies are definitely one of the best healthy foods to indulge in, even if you’re not dieting!

They’re made with real fruit and non-fat or low-fat Greek yoghurt, which means they’re loaded with fiber, antioxidants, and even a little protein for good measure, keeping you full and happy for hours, while satisfying your sweet tooth.3

2. Salads

As long as they’re not topped with dressings and ingredients that add unnecessary fat and calories, salads are another one of my favorite diet indulgences.

And yes, they can be very satisfying and, dare I say it, fun to eat!

Top with beans, dried fruit, or low-fat cheese crumbles.

Yum!

3. Baked Chicken

A girl can’t live on greens alone, and it’s important to have some protein in your diet, so why not indulge in some chicken?2

Avoid breaded or fried chicken, or chicken that’s swimming in a fattening dressing or marinade, and opt for something grilled with lemon and pepper, instead.

4. Whole Grain Bread

I’m a carb fanatic, so I always indulge in bread and other baked goods whenever I can get my hungry little hands on them.

The trick, of course, is to ditch the (literally) bleached processed baked goods and choose something made from healthy, hearty whole grains instead.2

They’re tastier, healthier, and will keep you feeling full and satisfied a lot longer than white bread.
