Genius meal swaps for a lower calorie life!

I know it may be easy to grab a quick snack when you’re on the go or just lazily shuffle through your pantry and grab the sweetest thing there to watch a good movie. But I’m here to tell you that you don’t need to make those terrible unhealthy options and more importantly you don’t have to sacrifice flavor and taste.

Eating healthy has gotten much easier these days with so many new snack ideas and awesome meal replacements. They don’t make you feel like your starving yourself, let alone on a diet! When choosing the ideal snack it is very important to look at the nutrition labels and understand what we are putting into our body. The 5 main points we should be looking at are #1 calories, #2 protein, #3 fat, #4 carbs, and #5 sugar

Pre-packaged snacks are packed in sugars and artificial material. A good example would be swapping a granola bar for a half cup of natural oatmeal. For about the same amount of carbs and fewer calories, you can get a similar experience with better quality and healthier oats & grains.

Another brilliant swap is frozen fruit like bananas and strawberry and blending it with some non-dairy milk for a low-calorie ice cream option. It already has natural sugars and none of the artificial content or preservatives, one of my favorite treats.

Fruit juices are another way that most people tend to consume their calories mindlessly. Instead of drinking a glass of orange juice the healthier more calorie friendly option would be to eat whole orange fruit with a nice glass of water. The reasons this swap makes sense as it does for any fruit juice is nonetheless backed by science itself. “Most notably, compared to a whole orange, a serving of orange juice has significantly less fiber and about twice the calories and carbs — which are mostly fruit sugar.”

You can swap out any carb and fat-packed cream cake for some fresh fruit next time to fulfill that sweet tooth and ensure you are ingesting the recommended amount of fruit for the day. Studies show that “Nearly 80% of Americans fall short of the recommended daily fruit intake, which is two cups daily for the average adult”

Lastly, the consumption of fruit is far superior to that of fruit juice because the juice may leave you feeling less full since it is quick to drink and may put you at a higher risk to overeat and gain weight.
