10 Simple Switches for Better Health

Leave a comment

These are 10 easy changes anyone could make today to improve their diet. I try to follow these suggestions when I can. Instead of Canola Oil, I use Coconut Oil and instead of whole wheat pasta, I use brown rice pasta. Every little bit helps!

Choose Olive oil or Canola oil over Butter, Margarine, Corn Oil, Vegetable Oil etc. Use sparingly because 1 Tablespoon has ~135 kcal (depending on the brand).

When baking, try to replace white flour with 100% whole wheat flour. Usually, you will need to sift the flour at least three times for perfect substitution. The end product may be a bit denser but that’s a good thing!
