7 Easy Pantry Swaps for a Healthier You
Often the types of foods we have in our pantry are doing more harm to our body than good. Making small changes over time can make a huge difference to your health.
You won’t believe how much healthier you will feel with these quick and easy health swaps.
Here are 7 healthy swaps we’re making and for the best price possible at Sprout.
1. Swap Soy Sauce for Coconut Amino’s
Soy Sauce may be tasty but it is full of salt, instead choose coconut amino’s. Due to the fermentation process you are left with lot’s of amino acids in it and 60% less sodium than soy sauce.
2. Swap Vegetable Oil for Coconut Oil
Vegetable oils are highly processed and can release harmful toxins when cooking at high temperatures. Coconut oil is a better option due to the high smoke point making it a better oil to cook with. A small amount goes a long way!
3. Swap Sugary soft drinks for Kombucha
Probiotic rich and low in sugar, need I say more? Kombucha is the it thing right now in the drink world and we can see why. With the various flavours and brands available there should be one that suites your tastebuds.
I have not had white pasta for years and I do not miss it one bit with all the fabulous alternatives out there. Swap that white stuff for brown rice or quinoa noodles, they are filled with protein and will keep you fuller for longer. Win, win!
5. Swap Parmesan Cheese for Nutritional yeast
Oh cheese, the highly addicting topping that many seem to love. Cheese is a very high calorie food that is filled with fat, sodium and cholesterol. Instead of sprinkling on parmesan try nutritional yeast. Nutritional yeast has a very cheesy like flavour and is a great source of B12.
6. Swap White Sugar for Coconut Sugar
Keeping sugar to a minimum is advised as it has no nutritional value during the process. Instead use coconut sugar or stevia, they are naturally derived and have a lower glycemic index.
7. Swap White Flour for Buckwheat Flour
White flour is very few nutrients and is chemical filled due to the bleaching process. Instead go for buckwheat flour, it is a naturally gluten free flour that is rich in iron and antioxidants just to name a few.
