You've probably already adopted a number of eco-friendly behaviors that benefit your health. Maybe you keep a reusable water bottle on you at all times, or never grocery shop without a canvas tote. Maybe you've upgraded your kitchen appliances to more energy-efficient models or planted your own garden.

This Earth Day, we applaud everyone taking the above steps and more. But we know there's still more we could be doing. In the spirit of the mission of Earth Day -- to secure a healthy future for us and our children -- here are a few simple food swaps you can make in your diet today to promote your own health and the health of the planet.
