Swap This For That!

The biggest misconception about eating well is that you are deprived of good tasting food…not the case my friends! The truth is, you can eat all of the delicious foods that you normally eat with just a few tweaks to make it a healthier choice. I have created a list of foods that I love (and still eat) but swap the traditional product for a better one.

Swap This:                        For That:

White sugar                     Coconut sugar, date sugar, Stevia, 100% Pure Maple syrup, Agave nectar, raw honey (Please, Please, PLEASE!  Stop eating artificial sweeteners like Splenda, Equal, and Aspartame! These are Bad, Bad, BAD!)

White pasta                      Whole wheat pasta (If you’re not gluten intolerant), Quinoa pasta, brown rice noodles, soba noodles,

White flour                       Organic, stone-milled whole-grain flour (if you’re not gluten intolerant), nut flours, quinoa flour, flaxseed mill, potato flour, millet flour and many more

White rice                         Brown rice, Quinoa, wild rice

White salt                         Himalayan sea salt, Celtic salt

Dairy milk                         Almond, coconut, hemp, soy, rice milk

With basic changes like these, you can continue to enjoy the foods you already eat, only now they will actually be contributing to your wellness rather than contributing to potential disEASE, bloating and weight gain.  I love brownies just as much as the next gal, my brownies just happen to be made with coconut sugar and whole-grain flour!  Make one change at a time if it seems overwhelming, even that one change helps!


Peace & swapping & brownies, nikki

    Hi Nikki,

    Thanks so much for the swapping tips. Still, I cannot for the life of me, understand how anyone thinks any type of soy is healthy, because it is not. Will send you some info on that.

    Hugs.

      Hi Cheryl, Sorry for the delay in response! I would love more info on soy. I know, for myself, I have been a little confused about it because of all of the conflicting information.

      Looking to forward to hearing from you, nikki

      Hi Cheryl! I am looking for some more topics to write about and I was wondering if you had any of the info about soy? Maybe that can be my next topic? Hope all is well and thanks for the inspiration 🙂 -nikki
