A quick inventory of your pantry can help you identify some foods and ingredients that can easily be exchanged for a healthier substitute. Look for those bags of regular potato chips, packs of cookies, packaged items like doughnuts or honey buns (you get the picture!). Strive to identify at least five items that you can find healthier substitutes for. Regular potato chips can be exchanged easily for the baked versions. Bake an angel food cake to keep on the kitchen counter instead of eating other pastry items. Look for lower fat/lower sugar cookies like animal crackers or ginger snaps (read the labels) to replace regular cookies. Remember: Keep taking baby steps towards a healthier you! Every small change adds up!
