Today, we’re going to take it to the kitchen. While working out is one part of the equation, what you eat is important too. No, no. I’m not going to lecture you, I promise. I just want to help you make the right decisions to help you thrive.
What do you say? You with me?
Springtime brings plenty of natural beauty and even helps improve mood thanks to the return of warmer weather and longer days. And for those of us who are focused on eating healthy and feeling better, it’s also the time that makes it easier to keep up our nutrition plan since so many fresh fruits and veggies are coming into season.
Food swaps are perfect for improving the way you eat, and all it takes is just a bit of effort. The key to great swaps is to focus on fresh. Here are some ideas:
Matcha tea instead of latte – Coffee is a pick me up for millions, but many try to add sugar and other sweets to it. Instead, try out matcha. This type of green tea comes with plenty of caffeine to pick you up, but also brings lots of antioxidants to improve your health.
Fruit instead of sweets – Whether it’s cake or candy, sweets can sabotage a good nutrition plan. Spring brings lower prices and easier access to fruits, and using them instead of those sugary sweets is a better option.
Fresh greens instead of frozen – Frozen greens are often more convenient for us busy people. But during the spring, fresh greens are plentiful and affordable. Use them wherever you can to improve your nutritional intake and enjoy a better taste.
Scallions for onions – There’s nothing wrong with onions at all, but trying to replace them with scallions in a few recipes can help give you a lighter, more interesting flavor while providing allicin – an infection-fighting compound.
When you head to the grocery store or farmer’s market, just remember that there are plenty of great swaps out there worth considering.
For an even quicker meal on those busy days I use Isagenix which is especially great when traveling too. I never worry about getting the proper nutrients anymore with these scientifically backed products.
So on your busy days when cooking is not an option, don’t hang out at fast food joints – instead pack a punch (or a lunch) with Isagenix for a nutritious delicious meal. This does the trick for me!
