To illustrate what I mean, I’m going to use the ever-so basic peanut butter and jelly sandwich as an example…
- 380 Calories
- 17.5g fat
- 440mg sodium
- 49g carbs
- 2g fiber
- 18g sugar
- 11g protein
- 310 Calories
- 17g fat
- 310mg sodium
- 34g carbs
- 8g fiber
- 9g sugar
- 12g protein
With just two simple swaps we managed to CUT OUT 70 CALORIES!! You also…
Dropped ½ g of fat, 15 carbs, & 130 mg of sodium! Not to mention, you did away with simple carbs and replaced them with whole grains which in turn, added a whopping 6g of fiber for a TOTAL of 8g in just ONE sandwich! You reduced your sugar intake by 9 grams AND added a gram of protein!
All we did was change the type of bread used and replaced the jelly with organic apple butter! Easy enough right??
Now imagine you did this for more than just a sandwich, but made healthy swaps throughout your diet..
Try it out! Start to make small changes in your diet and see what a BIG impact you can truly have on your health!
