Healthy Eating with NAKANO Rice Vinegars

NAKANO Rice Vinegars

With the holidays here & New Year’s resolutions close at hand, it can often be a challenge to find fresh seasonal foods to help you maintain a well-balanced diet throughout the winter.  Instead of packing on pounds with mindless eating, check out these easy healthier swaps to help replace high-calorie condiments. As the wind blows colder, it can be a challenge to find fresh seasonal foods for maintaining a well-balanced diet throughout the winter.

NAKANO’s rice vinegars can help cut extra calories and unnecessary fats in everyday meals, without sacrificing flavor!  With flavors like Roasted Garlic, Basil & Oregano, Mango, Citrus, & Original, the possibilities are endless.

  • Baked Potatoes: Indulge in a cold weather classic with a splash of NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegar- Garlic. This simple substitution for sour cream and butter saves 26g fat and 205 calories!
  • Poached Shrimp/Crab Legs: Dive into flavor instead of dipping into fat! Use NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegar- Mango on poached shrimp or crab legs instead of drawn butter, saving 14g of fat and 110 calories.
  • Macaroni Salads: Add a touch of tang to this holiday favorite using NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegar- Original instead of creamy dressing, saving 7-9g fat and 55-75 calories.
  • Sandwiches: Save 70 calories and 10g of fat in your lunchtime sandwich by swapping out mayo for a splash of NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegar- Original!

Personally, we love using rice vinegars in all of our meals & baking.  For me, it has a lighter, fresher taste.  Plus, my son has a corn allergy, which means regular corn-based vinegars aren’t an option for him.  Rice vinegar is an easy, yummy alternative our whole family enjoys.

The easy chart below highlights other healthy swaps starring NAKANO products.  Thankfully, it is possible to avoid the dreaded cold-weather weight gain while still enjoying your favorite foods – even throughout the holiday entertaining season!  Make these part of your regular cooking/baking in the New Year & you’ll be ready for bikini weather in no time!
