You know, the path to a more healthful lifestyle isn't always to change everything you are eating all at once. Over the years I have learned to substitute something in my diet that is not as healthy with something that is better.
As examples, I have substituted table salt with sea salt or redmond salt. I have substituted vegetable oil with Olive Oil & Coconut oil, & of course I have found many opportunities to substitute sugar with honey.
I used to throw a little bit of sugar into my spaghetti sauce, or soup & quite frankly nearly all of my cooking. Now I use honey instead. I prefer the taste & certainly prefer to avoid the sugar.
I also used to make a fresh lemonade or limeade in the summer with fresh citrus & sugar. One day I slapped my forehead & asked myself why I wasn't using honey. As soon as I did I was blown away at the amazingly flavorful & healthy drink I was enjoying. I have turned many people onto honey limeade since.
Usually the idea of "Substitution" is that you are giving up flavor for health. The real surprise to me as I have made these substitutes in my diet is that I have experienced the exact opposite. I love the added flavor & enjoyment that the more natural & healthful options have brought to my table.
