2. Clean eating swaps for weight loss
That’s why this very useful infographic shows the various ingredients that you can change out for simple carbs.
Let’s not forget about cooking dinner, as many of the ingredients used aren’t healthy either. Most people use high amounts of simple carbs when cooking that will just make you gain a lot of weight.
It can be hard sometimes to eat healthy even when we have all the right ingredients for cooking.
3. Swapping unhealthy baking ingredients for healthy ones
There are a lot of ways to switch out unhealthy ingredients for things that would actually benefit your health and weight.
You won’t really notice a significant difference when you swap them out but the small changes make the biggest differences internally.
Let’s look at baking. If you go to the bakery and look at the ingredients that are used, they aren’t healthy for your body.
Tons of these baked goods are packed with processed ingredients that will definitely destroy your health and weight.
But consider yourself lucky as you will now find out some great substitutes for when you want to bake your favorite goodies.
Let’s look at how real house moms approach their baking. For example, one of the substitutions used for egg is flaxseeds.
The reason is, eggs can raise your cholesterol and that’s why they suggest that you combine 1 tbsp of ground flaxseeds with 2 tablespoons of water for every egg you need.
You will need to let it stay for about 15 minutes, until it becomes gelatinous.
Another good example of healthy substitutions would be using coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. The reason for that is, coconut oil melts down in the microwave quickly and can be used as a healthier option when you bake.
Vegetable oils are highly processed and when heated to a certain temperature, anything that is beneficial gets destroyed.
On the other hand, coconut oil can’t stand the heat and keep all of its amazing health benefits and minerals.
Even if you do not like coconut oil there’s no need to worry as the coconut oil tastes nothing like artificial coconut and you can buy the unflavored version at your health store.
4. How to curb your cravings the healthy way
Sometimes it’s very hard to fight food cravings but if you develop a very strong mental approach and always keep adding alternatives to your food list, it will become easier.
NatureWorksBest created a very informative info graphic that shows you the various foods that you can use as substitutes.
When you have unhealthy food cravings always remember that you can substitute with a very healthy food instead of junk food.
Rice cakes, should be naturally low in calories and fat but it’s quite the opposite as it’s very high on the glycemic index.
What is the glycemic index?
This is what dietitians used to measure how whole foods’ impact on your blood sugar. In this case, sugar is rated as 100 with rice cakes being at 82.
So this is something you should not be eating ,as it will raise your blood sugar.
