12 Nutrition Swaps for 2012

Posted: 01/06/2012 7:20 am

It's a new year, and plenty of us are resolving to lose weight, exercise more and eat less. I'd like to propose a resolution makeover... Don't just aim to eat less and deprive yourself, instead upgrade what you are currently eating to give your body the wholesome, energizing foods it needs. Below are 12 small diet swaps you can do that will add up to a big payoff for weight loss and optimal health...

How to: Opt for sesame seeds, chopped pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds instead of breadcrumbs to coat chicken and fish.
Healthy Payoff: Get the crunch you crave but with more healthy fat, fiber and protein.
