1.Vinegar/Citrus and Oil Dressings Instead of Creamy Dressings

Skip the creamy dressing, you won't miss the taste. Vinegar or citrus mixed with olive oil or coconut oil makes a succulent and healthy dressing for any salad. Creamy dressings are laden with fat and sugars, but the fat in the oil used in the vinegar and oil dressings, is heart healthy and good for you.

2.Stevia Instead of Sugar

Sugar is one of the leading causes of obesity and type 2 diabetes in this country. It works in two ways to cause devastation to the body. One, it is an inflammatory. Two, it goes immediately into your blood stream causing an insulin surge to remove it, which then causes the body to store fat. Also, overtime the over use of insulin can cause your pancreas to stop producing it, resulting in type 2 diabetes and the need for insulin shots

3.Fresh Fruit Juice Instead of Bought Fruit Juice

One of the benefits of eating fruit over sweets is that the fiber in the pulp slows down the absorption of simple sugars into the blood stream. strip that pulp away, and you get a simple sugar almost equivalent to a candy bar. However, today's juicers pulverize the pulp into a liquid form along with the juice so you get all the vitamins and nutrients, plus the fiber. Store bought juice contains no pulp and has lots most of its nutrients before it even hits the shelves, not to mention the simple sugar count.

4.Quinoa Instead of Rice

Quinoa can be used anywhere you use rice, but with much more health benefits. Unlike rice, quinoa is packed with protein and contains anti-inflammatory phytonutrients including the omega 3 fatty acid, alpha linolenic acid. It is also high in antioxidants with vitamin E. With health supporting fats such as oleic acid, quinoa is a superfood that is super good for you.

5.96% Lean Ground Beef Instead of Regular Ground Beef

Red meat has gotten a bad rap for causing cholesterol in the body, but studies show that foods that contain cholesterol don't necessarily build cholesterol in the arteries. When choosing a 96% lean cut of ground beef, you are only getting 4% fat, and the cholesterol count is lower, too. The iron and protein counts outweigh the negative, if eaten in moderation.

6.Sprouted Bread Instead of White Bread

Most people think that buying whole wheat or whole grain bread is better than processed white bread, and they are right, but they are still getting wheat gluten and chemically altered wheat. Sprouted bread is made from sprouted wheat kernels, retaining more nutrients and fiber, which makes it easier to digest.

7.Coconut Oil Instead of Butter

Coconut oil has many health benefits and is far better for you than butter. It tastes great too. Use it anywhere you would use butter, including on your toast, to stir fry, on corn and more. Even though coconut oil contains fat, it is made up of medium chain triglycerides which when broken down in the liver is burned as energy instead of being stored as fat.

8.Low Fat Dairy Instead of Full Fat Dairy

There are many low fat versions of milk, yogurt, and cheeses that taste just as great, if not better, than the full fat versions. A great source of protein, without the added fat, the calcium content is great for strengthening bones and teeth. Plain low fat greek yogurt with your own added berries and nuts is a far better choice than a high fat yogurt laden with sugar and fruit syrups.

9.Almonds Instead of Protein Bars

Protein is great for muscle retention, muscle building and boosting your metabolism. A body with a greater muscle mass burn more fat at rest than those with lesser muscle. Protein sources such as chicken, fish, and red meat are hard to snack on, so people tend to reach for protein bars, which can be laden with sugar. Instead grab a handful of nuts to satisfy your appetite and give yourself a dose of protein at the same time.

10.Fruit Instead of Sugary Sweets

Even though fruit contains sugar, it is far better for you than other sweets such as candy, cookies and cake. The fiber in the fruit slows down the absorption of sugars into your blood stream, whereas the afore mentioned sweets hit your blood stream almost immediately, triggering insulin rushing to remove it, and causing fat storage. Fruit is great for that sugary fix, without all the negative health issues.

11.Shirataki Noodles Instead of Pasta

Shirataki Noodles are a great alternative to traditional pasta that is made from semolina flour. These noodles are made of tofu and have the added benefit of being gluten free.

12.Egg White Omelet

All the fat and cholesterol are found in the yolk of the egg. If you make an egg white omelette, you really don't miss the taste of the yolk, especially if you mix in some onions, broccoli and low fat cheese. Basil, cilantro and parsley also add a great taste to this healthy breakfast. A three egg white omelette gives you 15 grams of protein.
