I'll admit it. I think it's difficult to eat healthy all of the time. I do pretty well most of the time, but the best technique by far that I've used to be sure that I'm eating healthy meals regularly is to simply replace unhealthy ingredients with something healthier. I don't mean replacing it in your recipe... I mean trying to replace it in your kitchen or pantry. I know that these aren't all perfect replacements that work in every single recipe, but in general, I've found them to be healthier options that work in a lot of recipes.
If unhealthy ingredients aren't around, you don't use them. That simple. So, below are some items I have ditched and the healthier food items I have replaced them with. Healthy foods aren't as expensive as you think when you buy right here at Swanson from the healthy food section of the store.
