Simple Swaps

It can be sooo confusing to know what are the best choices to buy when it comes to food to keep your family healthy and thriving! Did you know there are actually some super simple swaps that can be life changing and health changing – especially for our little people!

Sometimes it’s a matter of swapping THIS for THAT. 

Here is a cheat sheet list for you to know WHAT to swap to and WHERE to buy for some commonly used foods. We can still enjoy all these beautiful foods but often there is a better version of them to buy so that our families health can thrive. 

Our little people need maximum nutrition and by eating more real, whole foods we can nourish their brains which helps them learn and grow and become the best versions of themselves possible! We want our kids to be happy and healthy and providing great choices for them comes from us as parents.

Oils ain’t Oils

We want to be avoiding hydrogenated vegetable oils as they are so highly inflammatory to the body! So we don’t want canola oil or any cheap vegetable oil because these have a low heat point and so when used with cooking is not great for our health. We need to start cooking with oils that health our health not cause our health harm. Been using vegetable or canola oil? Use this instead!
