Give Your Diet a Makeover! Swap Bad Foods for Healthy Alternatives
May 07, 20151 min read
Here are 3 quick diet swaps that will help you tighten up your diet. If you love pasta as much as we do, #3 will allow you to enjoy it more often!
Swap Soda Pop for Sparkling Water
Soft drinks might be what you crave on hot summer days, but the truth is they are full of refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup and sodium. They make you dehydrated, raise your blood sugar and can even damage your pancreas. Swap soda for fruit-infused sparkling water. Adding fruits like strawberries, raspberries and lemon can liven up your drink while the carbonated bubbles mimic those in soft drinks.
Swap Sour Cream for Greek Yogurt
Sour cream is a staple food for many people. From nachos to tacos to baked potatoes, sour cream makes a yummy side. But sour cream isn't a significant source of nutrients and is basically empty calories. Meanwhile, Greek yogurt is fully loaded with probiotics to support your gastrointestinal tract! The best part is that it tastes the same as sour cream, so you won't even notice the switch!
Swap White Pasta for Zucchini Pasta
White pasta contains gobs of refined carbs and gluten. White pasta also have phylates which block the absorption of beneficial nutrients into your body. Switching to wholemeal pasta is a start, but why not go all the way and try zucchini pasta? Just shave zucchinis into thin slices or use a spiralizer to create authentic noodles. You can use zucchini pasta to create all your favourite pasta recipes.
