Want to start 2017 off on the right foot?
It can be hard to kick the junk food habit after holidays, so we’ve put together our top 4 healthy swaps you can make right now to save on kilojoules and pack more nutrients into your diet.
1. Swap rice for cauliflower
If you haven’t tried any grain alternatives, this is the perfect introduction. Blitz your cauliflower in a food processor until it looks like rice, then bake or stir fry! Try the plain version, or get a bit fancier with this spicy fried cauliflower rice, which is a favourite in our house.
2. Swap noodles or pasta for zucchini
Wheat can cause a lot of digestive problems for many people, so it can be good to take a break from it or steer clear altogether. But when you’re craving pasta or noodles, it can be difficult!
Invest in a spiralizer and you can make yourself some tasty zucchini noodles to satisfy your cravings. Try them with our avocado, mint and spinach pesto, or try out this zucchini noodle, salmon and beans recipe!
3. Swap wraps for lettuce
Wraps might seem healthy and lower in kilojoules than bread, but they are often packed with artificial ingredients and higher levels of salt! A better alternative is to wrap your sandwich ingredients in lettuce leaves.
4. Swap buns for mushrooms
Hanging for a burger? No problem! Swap those burger buns for mushroom cups and you’ve got yourself a protein-packed burger that’s tasty and healthy to boot.
