Healthy Meal Swaps That Will Satisfy

When transitioning to a healthy lifestyle, it can be hard to let go of all of the delicious foods you know and love. But, you're in luck because we have a few swaps you can make to still enjoy your favorite foods while staying on track.


Lentil/Chickpea Pasta:

If you're craving a bowl of pasta, head to your local market and pick up some Lentil/Chickpea based pasta. Not only does it still taste delicious, but it is packed with proteins and nutrients. In just one serving, there is 14g of protein, compared to the standard 2g in traditional pastas.


Cauliflower Rice:

Who doesn't love a good asian stir fry or fajita bowl? Swap out your typical white or brown rice with cauliflower rice instead! You can find this item at most grocery stores in both the produce and frozen aisle. This substitution is sure to satisfy your craving while also being incredibly delicious!



PB2 is a lighter calorie option for your traditional Peanut Butter. There is nothing wrong with peanut butter but if you are trying to stay in a caloric deficit it could be smart to swap for PB2. PB2 comes in a powdered form that you mix with water when you are ready to use it. For 2 TBSP, Peanut Butter stands at 190 calories while PB2 is just 45 calories.
