Clean Versions of Takeout

Posted on

Sometimes it’s hard to kick a craving for takeout, especially for comfort food. What if you didn’t have to deny your cravings, but you could simply alter the ingredients to make your “takeout” healthier? We have some ideas for you, when it comes to the classics.

Make your own lean patties, use lower fat cheese, and stack some fresh veggies on your bun. For even better burgers, use good quality organic, grass-fed beef.


To serve with your burgers, or by themselves, bake yourself some fries from scratch. Cut potatoes to your desired thickness, spray or toss with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. For something extra, add some fresh rosemary.

General Tso

This recipe from Damn Delicious is a lighter take on the Chinese-American favorite. Who knew cornflakes could add something to a baked General Tso’s Chicken dish?


Redefined Mom gives us a delicious healthier burrito recipe, using chicken and all your favorite Mexican ingredients. Try it at home!


Lavash bread makes a perfect thin and crispy pizza crust, especially when you bake it for ten minutes before putting on the toppings. Stack the pizza with veggies, lean meats, and low fat cheese. You’ll meet your pizza need without the excess calories.
