7 Simple Food Swaps For A Healthier You
1. Porridge vs Granola
Despite the recent popularity of granola for both its nutrition and convenience, switching the same amount of Porridge Oats can reportedly cut the calorie count by up over 25%, and gives you slow releasing energy to keep you going throughout the day.
2. Spinach vs Lettuce
Common lettuces such as iceberg are hardly unhealthy, but don’t offer much in the way of nutritional value due to being mostly water. Swapping lettuce for fresh spinach however offers a whole host of benefits, being full of iron, magnesium, Vitamins A and B, which can help to keep a healthy metabolism.
3. Courgetti and Spaghetti Squash vs Spaghetti
Create your own veggie-filled, gluten-free pasta with the replacement spiralized vegetables for spaghetti, and save close to 200 calories.
4. Almonds vs Snack Bars
Many high street snack bars contain high fructose corn syrup, and the ones that don’t are usually high in sugar or binding additives. Almonds on the other hand are the most protein-rich nut with 21g per 100g, and are far fewer calories too. Get yours here.
5. Goji Berries and Nuts vs Croutons
The unsaturated fatty acids in nuts can help you to get the most nutrients from your salad, along with an increase in protein, but less calories than croutons. Adding goji berries not only introduces a chewy texture and zesty taste, but also makes your salad more antioxidant and vitamin rich.

Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is also quite a multi-tasker, being an effective moisturiser, shampoo, cuticle cure and teeth whitener. Get yours HERE.
7. Natural vs Processed Food Supplements
Food supplements can be a convenient way to enjoy some of the world’s nutrient-rich foods. However some are riddled with artificial flavourings and additives. Pina colada or candy floss flavoured protein powders? Thanks… but no thanks. Natural earth-grown nutrition provides far more benefits with real, aromatic flavours.
