Looking for some easy wins in the battle of the bulge? Here are some simple swaps you can make in your every day food choices. You’ll be amazed that these seemingly small choices will give you huge results:
Sub: Ground oats
White flour is starchy and has a high GI rating. Ground oats is high in fibre, low in GI and can be beneficial in lowering cholesterol.
Ditch: full fat milk
Sub: skim/ fat free milk
You’ll save a whopping 8g of fat per cup with this simple sub!
Mayonnaise is notorious for adding hidden calories to an otherwise healthy sandwich. Try spreading some Dijon or grainy mustard instead. There’s about the same amount of fat in one tablespoon of mayo as a whole jar of mustard.
Ditch: Fruit juice
Sub: Water with fresh lime or lemon
You’ll save on sugar, aid hydration and still get that fruity zing.
Sub: Baked potato
You’ll feel just as full, but you’ll save yourself about 10g of fat per serve
Sub: Banana bread
Some muffins have up to 25g of fat! Go for a healthy slice of home made banana bread instead with a virtually guilt free 6g fat
