It often happens that you hear people complaining that when they started eating healthy, they cant eat with their friends and family anymore. The types of food and ingredients they consume are so drastically different from what they are used to have. To solve this problem, I have listed some healthy replacements for the food ingredients you usually use in this article.
1- Instead of using mayo as a condiment, just settle for mustard. The safest ingredient in mayo is vegetable oil which causes inflammation and is full of oxidants and saturated fats. Mustard is just mustard seed paste and vinegar.
2- You don’t need me to tell you about the health problems soda causes to your body, and the list grows with time and development in science. So, instead of soda drink tea. It is natural, has no calorie content and is full of antioxidants.
3- Use powdered coconuts instead of flour. Coconut has about ten times the fiber in flour, no simple refined carbs and much lower calorie content. Moreover, it was proven that the fat in coconuts promotes weight loss.
5- Rice is a delicious grain but it has many clories and it is considered among simple carbs. Use quinoa instead of rice because it has a lot of filling protein and fiber and lower calories.
6- Use stevia sweetener instead of sugar. It has zero calories and it is natural. Make sure to get packs labeled with “extract” to guarantee that it is pure.
7- If you are in the mood for a snack, eat air-popped popcorn instead of potato chips. It has no fat and lower calorie content.
8- Both Iceberg lettuce and romaine lettuce are healthy; it is just that romaine is much healthier. It has much more vitamins and minerals.
