How can i make this recipe healthier…?

Ingredients
1 tbsp vegetable oil
16 good-quality pork and herb sausages
2 large onions, sliced
2 celery sticks, chopped
12 rashers smoked streaky bacon, chopped
2 tbsp plain flour
2 tbsp tomato purée
330ml bottle Guinness
300ml beef stock, hot
250g chestnut mushrooms, halved
3 tbsp fresh parsley leaves, to garnish

Per serving:
498kcals
39g fat (13g saturated)
21.1g protein
16.9g carbs
5.7g sugar
3.6g salt

I’ve already taken out the bacon…not sure how that will reduce the salt and fat content. I like the idea of the guiness for flavour and its good for iron (thats my story and im sticking to it!) I also plan to use reduced fat sausage, wll probably half the sausage amount and up the veg amount instead as well…but not sure about how this will effect calories etc…

Overall i like traditional foods but my boyfriend and i are going on a healthy food kick and trying to put more veg in our diet…any advice or similar recipies would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Try these substitutions:
-use turkey sausage (I would keep same amount since you cut out the bacon)
-use low-fat, sodium-free beef broth
-use olive oil

I’m not familiar with stout, but do they have light version of this?

You can add more veggies – carrots sound good with this.

Add salt after the cooking, if you need it.

    i think this is not so healthy because sausages are high in calories because it’s mostly made of fat. if you want healthy go for fish or chicken.

    That sounds wonderful to me!

    PORTION CONTROL is the key to healthy eating. All foods are healthy! It is just the amount of them that is unhealthy! Serving size should be about 1 cup! or about the amount of 4 decks of cards.

    Use Olive oil.
    Instead of pork sausages use chicken.
    Add some peppers, and garlic to this dish.
