Easy And Healthy Food Swaps For Weight Loss

Spiralised vegetables instead of pasta

While spaghetti can be healthful and delicious, substituting spiralized veggies can add fibre and nutrients. Try spiralized zucchini, carrots, beets or cucumber for low-carb, low-calorie meals. Cooked spaghetti has 200 calories per cup, while zucchini noodles have 35.

Flavoured fizzy water instead of soft drink

Soft drinks include roughly 10 teaspoons of sugar per can and artificial colours and tastes that can cause stomach issues. Go sugar-free with soda water with lemon, lime, or mint and save 140 calories.  

Greek yoghurt instead of sour cream

The creamy texture and slightly acidic flavour of Greek yoghurt make it a good sour cream substitute.Greek yoghurt has 0g fat and 65 calories, while full-fat sour cream has 21g fat and 214 calories.

Frozen nice cream instead of ice cream

If you haven't tried this simple and excellent ice cream substitute, you're in luck! Blend frozen overripe bananas for a low-sugar ice cream.A tub of ice cream has sugar, chemicals, and preservatives, but ‘nice’ cream only has banana!

Untoasted muesli instead of toasted muesli

Despite appearing healthy, toasted muesli is produced by tossing oats with honey, maple syrup, or sugar, oil, and salt for flavour. Though tasty, it's laden with sugar.

Salsa instead of tomato sauce

Package sauces may contain concealed sugar, adding unnecessary sugar to a meal. Instead of tomato sauce, use salsa to flavour dishes. Ketchup has sugar or other sweets, whereas salsa is only tomatoes, onion, red peppers, and vinegar.
