Hello my joyous reader!
I just appeared on the Steven and Chris Show yesterday talking about 5 foods to ditch from your kitchen now! And of course, I've got you covered with healthy swaps.
There is a more extensive list of foods to ditch and healthy substitutions on page 126 and 127 in my book, Joyous Health! I also have some older videos of foods to ditch from your kitchen on my youtube channel.
Here are a few more foods to ditch and what to replace them with.
Replace with: Salsa because ketchup is mostly refined sugar. Check the label because many store-bought salsas can have a lot of additives too. Better yet, make your own! Chop up some tomato, red onion, avocado and sprinkle with sea salt and drizzle with lime juice -- voila!
Ditch: Take out or frozen pizza
Replace with: Make your own pizza of course. It's super easy. Plenty of pizza recipes right here and a very very delicious recipe in my book on page 246. Unless it's take out from a good quality pizza place like Pizza Libretto then I suggest you ditch it.
Replace with: Organic butter of course! Coconut oil would also make a great option. Margarine is often made with GMO-soybean oil (grossly disgusting!) and various other ingredients that should not be in your body. Put it this way, if it can't grow mold after sitting on your counter for a few days, it's not real food. Also, the margarine's marketed as having "olive oil" are not a healthy substitute. Have you noticed the olive oil is liquid, not solid? This means the oil has been highly processed. Stick to the real stuff and ditch the margarine.
Have fun cleaning out your kitch and have a joyous day!
