My fiance and I are in the habit of getting doughnuts every morning we volunteer. Since we volunteer twice a week, this is kind of a problem. What are some ways I could make this habit a little healthier? He’s not very interested in eating healthy so I need ideas that he’ll be okay with as well.

green tea is a great alternative that surprisingly contains a lot more caffeine than usually expected. it actually has more caffeine than a light coffee/latte. it’s great for detox and has amazing health benefits! it’s definitely my go-to everyday drinks that i’m always looking for. i hope this helps!

I would go for a fruit salad, a smoothie or some yoghurt with fruit. Fruits and vegetables get digested a lot faster than most carbohydrate and protein rich foods and that means they'll help you lose weight and also the nutrients in them will get absorbed quicker. If you don't want fruit then I would say scrambled eggs or an omelette since you can add mushrooms and other things to suit your taste. For something sweeter I would suggest cinnamon toast with ideally honey (and maybe some juice or a smoothie?). It should keep you full and help you lose weight too. Honestly I think the fruit would be a good idea if you're really into the healthy eating thing but if you're just looking to lose some weight and get more of a healthy diet then I would maybe for the others? There are also loads of great recipes that you can try out on the internet so you can always look through those when you're free. Goodluck to both you and your fiance!!

Start each day with a different thoughts l, ideas that you need to take care of your body it’s your precious thing In the world
Don’t think it’s a week, take day bay day to make a big difference on your life. Start to add to your breakfast thins that you like

I’m not a very experienced person, but I think that it’s better not to stress too much over eating unhealthy food every once in a while. If you are eating healthily besides the doughnuts and getting enough exercise, then it should be okay. If you think it’s becoming too much, then try having something a little healthier on some days, like muffins or angel food cake.

Well, if he doesn't want to change then theee is nothing you can do. But you personally change doughnuts into healtier alternatives such as nutz, protein cakes (healthy recipies) even protein pancakes you can make it sweet with some honey. So that would be a good start at least

Hi , it's an old saying that to win a person's heart you need to make his/her tummy happy. If he don't like healthy don't forced but you follow the healthy eating routine initially. Till a time comes when you are confident enough that what you are making sweet dishes is up to the mark and everyone likes them . Than offer him to have taste of it. Gradually decrease the sugar quantity and than change his routine too. It may take a year or 2 year but surely benefits in long-term. And if your fiance has ignorant, arrogant and annoying personality like he doesn't want to follow , then leave him as he is some time you can't change someone but can change your self so invest in your self.

Compromise with other foods or workouts.

First you can try to only eat one doughnut a week. Say that you skip the first day you volunteer but enjoy the second more. If you dont want to do that you can compromise with helthy foods. You can eat the doughnuts but you also have to eat for example three carrots the same day. Doing this brings healthy foods into your day and makes you boath realise what you eat. I myself is very fond of muffins and this was a way for me to balance the eating. I eat one apple and one banana for each muffin.

You can also work out. Personaly i prefer eating over workouts, but i pressure myself to do a 7-10 minuitt workout each day. That helps alot!

maybe you should use gluten-free flour to make it healthier. and you can mix cacao and honey then pour it onto the doughnut, it’s way more healthier than tha chocolate sauce.

Start small, maybe offer to grab the breakfast snack then get something like fruits. Do it once in the two times you go to volunteer. Then he will probably ease into it.

You can find some healthy doughnut recipes. Or instead of eating doughnut every morning eat oatmeal instead. Here are other sweet breakfast ideas: pancakes, waffle (to make it healthy you can use oat flour), healthy Nutella with bread with some banana slices (you can make one at home or buy a healthy alternative of Nutella), granola with Greek yogurt, smoothie bowl. You can find other delicious recipes on Google too. If you don't have time cooking pancake and waffle at home, you can buy some healthy pancake and waflle mix it could be vegan or gluten free. Also, try you best that anything you eat is gluten free.

Can you go somewhere that sells. Doughnuts/something else he would have but also sells something that you’d like as a healthier option? Or are there places that sell healthier options that you both would like? Could you make your own healthier desserts and save them for those mornings?

Adryanna Y.
OK. Here is a plan that might work to wheen your partner off doughnuts and make him eating healthier but still 'yummy' things. First, ask him to eat the simple circle type of doughnuts, as they won't have the type of low quality jam/cream in them that are full of chemicals. Any type of ring doughnuts would do. Once he is OK eating those, then try the following steps. Persuade him to move from rong doughnuts to Nutella sandwiches, after a while change the bread to multiseaded wholemeal and see if he would complain. If he won't, then after a while move to peanut butter sandwiches. First the smooth one with salt and oil, later on the one without salt, later on using a crunchy one. The Whole Earth brand is quite good. Once he made that transition from doughnut to crunchy peanut butter sandwiches without salt, stop there and stick with it. It would still be a somewhat yummy treat but a really healthy one. Good luck!:-) P.S.: It is not the good fat in nuts that would kill you but salt and processed sugar.

If donuts are a reward you give yourself for volunteering, and it's not everyday, they can be a good thing. But if you really don't want to eat them anymore, you can swap them for another healthier options, or maybe gameify it! set for him and yourself a difficult goal, and say "if we do more/better than X, we can get donuts"

Adryanna Y.
try swapping out the first day with a cup of coffee instead, therefore you’ll be ready for the day the right way and it is slightly healthier, and the second day you can reward yourself with getting donuts

Adryanna Y.
Maybe you could try homemade muffins, this way you could decide what to put in them and most importantly you avoid frying

Volunteering is a great hobby! And doughnuts are great as well! But to emphasise on being healthy, a great idea would be to go for a doughnut walk which is somewhat far, and to jog to the shop, this will make sure the calories consumed (with the doughnuts) are well spent (before eating). All the best!
