5 Simple Swaps for Healthier Eating

Make little changes to avoid unhealthy amounts of sugar, fat and sodium.

You don’t need to overhaul your diet to achieve healthy eating habits. Small, practical changes to meals you already eat can add up to big wins over time. Here’s how you can make a few tweaks throughout the day to decrease your sugar, saturated fat and sodium intake.

Cut down on saturated fat in your coffee order. Skip the whipped cream and ask for skim milk instead of whole. 

Scale back on saturated fat by skipping the bakery section. Choose nutrient-dense options like whole grains and fruit.

Reduce saturated fat by using a vinaigrette on salads instead of creamy dressings.

Choose dips and toppings made from vegetables, rather than cheese or butter to cut down on saturated fat and sodium. Vegetables also are a good source of fiber and will help you stay full until your next meal.

Cut down on saturated fat by looking for menu items that are baked, broiled or steamed, rather than fried or cooked in butter.
