Swap This for That

Swap This for That (+ Nice Cream Recipe!)

Many people think that in order to be healthy, you have to deprive yourself of your favorite foods. But how mundane would that make mealtime? Deprivation is a slippery slope that can lead to loads of other problems, so it’s time to ditch the dreaded “D” word and embrace a smart swap! We are constantly inspired by finding new ways to nourish, even more so when we can find a way to turn a tasty treat from naughty to nice. You don’t need to stop it, just swap it for the good stuff.
