Swap This For That – 11 Healthy Food Swaps

Oct 17, 2016 | Nutrition

Want to know how to eat healthy without feeling deprived? As a nutritionist, I am here to give my clients the tools to enhance their daily health choices without making them feel deprived or overwhelmed on their health journey.

If you want to lead a healthier life I always recommend starting off with small achievable steps. Over time small changes can turn into lifelong healthy habits. By simply swapping this for that; you will not only improve your nutritional profile, but you will also eventually see how easy it is to lead a healthier life. Your body will thank you for this, and in return, you will reap the rewards. If I can make these changes, you can too!

So, if you want to start making small steps toward change, here is a list of healthy swaps that are both tasty and nourishing!
