Swaps to Upgrade Your Diet

March is National Nutrition Month – a great time to start eating better. As Hippocrates famously said, "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." 

We all know that vegetables are good for us, so why are we so confused about what to eat? We’re bombarded with misleading claims and confusing studies, often funded by the food industry, to keep us guessing. Flashy headlines with the latest trends get our attention but do nothing to help us decode what’s good for us and what’s not.

The good news is that eating better is easier than you think, and it doesn’t require restrictive diets that leave you feeling hungry and dissatisfied. I've always appreciated the simplicity of Michael Pollan's advice in his book In Defense of Food: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."

These seven simple words are a great place to start when upgrading your diet. They are the basis of a free ebook that I created, Whole Foods for Whole Health. The ebook includes healthy swaps to assist you in adding more whole foods to your plate and recipes to get you started.

One of the best things you can do for your health is cook more and eat out less. You’ll likely eat less since the dishes served in restaurants tend to be massive. Plus, what you cook at home is almost always going to be healthier than what you’re served at a restaurant, with one caveat – that you focus on whole foods rather than highly processed foods. 

I hope this free resource helps you start eating better today. If you'd like more help incorporating more whole, plant-based foods into your diet, check out my eight-week Whole Foods for Whole Health coaching program, and apply today.
