If You Like That….Try This

by Lisa Golebieski, M.S.

Almost all of us or someone in our family food shops every week and we tend to stick to brands that we are accustomed to or have seen in commercials, media or through coupon ads.

But did you know that many of those foods that you like can be replaced by healthier versions?

I’ve made many of these discoveries by trying brands that offer the same or similar taste to the foods I enjoy but have better quality ingredients and less of the bad stuff (like trans fats, partially hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, etc.).

Here are some comparisons:

If you like Doritos….try Late July Dude Ranch Chips

Health benefits include: 

Gluten-free, have 16 whole grains, contain 280mgs of Omega 3s per serving, Non-GMO, contain no synthetic pesticides or chemical fertilizers, no trans fats, no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives

If you like Wishbone Salad Dressings….try Spectrum Organic Dressings

Health Benefits include:

A delicious source of Omega-3 ALA. One serving equals 100% of the daily value of Omega-3 ALA.  No hydrogenated oils, preservatives or artificial flavors.  Full of fresh herbs, healthy oils such as organic cold-pressed flax oil and organic extra virgin olive oil.

If you like Kellogg’s Frosted Mini Wheat’s….try Kashi Island Vanilla Whole Wheat Biscuits

Health benefits include:

48g whole grains, high fiber, low fat, sodium free and USDA Organic— Certified Organic by Quality Assurance International.

If you like Skippy Peanut Butter….try Maranatha Nut Butters

Health benefits include:

Different types of nuts such as almonds, cashews, macadamias and sunflower seed butter offer an array of healthy choices.  Only the finest quality nuts used.  Non-hydrogenated oils, no sugar or low sugar and no preservatives.

 If you like Lipton Green Tea….try Honest Tea Green Classic Tea

Health benefits include:

No high fructose corn syrup, only 9 grams of pure organic cane sugar per serving, purified water for brewing and the antioxidant benefits of green tea.

Trying and introducing healthier product choices are not only fun but also a great way to upgrade your refrigerator and pantry with food that is going to benefit your body and well-being.
