There are many people who have decided to make 2018 a year of healthy eating choices and a more balanced diet. Which is why we thought of creating the infographic below. Our first suggestion is to check out how the soup, miso from Clearspring can benefit your body.
Let’s take a look at a few more examples of the healthy food swaps you’ll find in the infographic.
As unappealing as this type of flour sounds, buckwheat flour is actually perfect to bake with. Whether that’s in your morning pancakes or for your daughter’s birthday cake. Buckwheat is a great alternative for usual flour because of the health benefits it has. Plus, you won’t even be able to taste the difference, so it’s a win-win situation.
As mentioned, buckwheat flour has many health benefits. Let’s dig deeper into them! The first benefit is that it lowers cholesterol and blood pressure levels, which actually encourages a healthy heart.
It also is high in fibre, gluten-free, helps to prevent diabetes, contains antioxidants and vitamins and minerals. What’s not to love about buckwheat flour?
Furthermore, almond milk is a nutritious swap for cow’s milk due to its dairy-free, enriched vitamin D contents. Unfortunately, not many people know the disadvantages of drinking cow’s milk and there because there are so many, it’s sad to think that they’re all missing out on a healthier option.
The problem with cow’s milk is mainly that we aren’t built to drink another mammals milk. Because of this, our bodies cannot soak up all the vitamins and nutrients found in cow’s milk. So, the benefits of cow’s milk get cancelled out by the issue that our body isn’t meant for it.
Using coconut oil to encourage healthy hair growth and clear skin are just the more well-known health benefits of the plant-based oil. You can also swap it with butter to spread over your slices of bread.
Coconut oil is actually a solid substance when kept below 23∞c, above that and it begins to melt. This is what makes it perfect for toast!
