Forget the strict diet that promises to “change your life” and introduce minor changes that will really make a big difference.

Here are 5 healthy food alternatives that can really make a difference:

Replace fried bread with nuts

Salads should be a healthy alternative to food, but despite this, they are rich in calories and unhealthy ingredients. Improve your salads by replacing the fired bread with nuts. Not only will it enrich the flavor, but nuts are also rich in fatty acids, protein, vitamins and minerals.

Replace beef meat with turkey meat

You do not have to give up on burgers, but change the meat you consume. Turkey meat contains only half the saturated fat compared to beef meat but enough tasty alternative to all the dishes that you can serve with this meat.

Replace the fatty snacks with popcorn

When you get the desire to have a snack, reach for the good, old popcorn. Popcorn with whole grains is rich in fiber (which will contribute to a feeling of fullness), which is a healthy option as long as you evade adding butter and large amounts of salt.

Replace cream with fatty-less Greek yogurt

If you want an easy and healthy meal, forget the cream. This dairy product replace it with Greek yogurt, which is an excellent source of protein, calcium and vitamin B-12, while the cream for cooking is less nutritious and is full of fat at the same time.

Replace chocolate with dates

The desserts are a source of pleasure, so people rarely relinquish them. But that does not mean that they can not be healthy. Dates are an excellent substitute for chocolate, especially when it comes to cookies. Not only will it satisfy the need for sugar, you’ll enter an abundance of nutrients as well.
