Healthy Food Swaps (Lunch)

Here Are Some Smart (LUNCH) Substitutions That Will Help You Look Better, Feel Better And Slim Down, Too!

The trick is to make suble changes that'll give you more of the good stuff (like calcium, fiber and antioxidants) while cutting back on the bad (like excessive amounts of fat and calories)

You can do this, and still LOVE every single bite!

Instead of Smoked turkey and chedder on a baguette TRY natural sliced turkey with roasted peppers on a whole wheat baguette
You'll banish cancer causing compounds foun in smoked foods and add protective antioxidants

Instead of chicken salad sanseich made with regular mayo TRY tuna salad sandwich made with canola oil mayonnaise
You'll get a double dose of heart healthy omega 3 fats

Instead of grilled veggie burrito TRY chicken burrito bowl
Your'll lose 160 calories and 26 grams of fat and add 4 grams of fiber

Instead of cheese calzone TRY slice of stuffed crust pizza
The pizza has 410 fewer calories and 12 fewer grams of fat

Instead of corned beef sandwich TRY ham sandwich
You'll eat 55 percent less fat

Instead of crispy chicken wrap TRY kid sized hamburger
You'll save 90 calories and 8 grams of fat

Instead of grilled chicken sandwich with mayon on white bread TRY grilled chicken sandwich with avocado on whole wheat bread
Avocado has tons of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals, plus cholesterol lowering plant sterols. Whole wheat bread adds fiber and 30 percent more protein than white bread.

Instead of falafel pita TRY pita with hummus
The fried falafel has 203 more calories and 11 more grams of fat than hummus
