10 nutritious food swaps

10 nutritious food swaps

The world of nutrition can be overwhelming and confusing - there's so much information out there, it’s hard to know what to believe or where to start. The most important thing to remember is that you are unique and your body works differently to everyone else. Tuning into your body and eating in a way that is intuitive, pleasurable, nourishing and satisfying is key.  Making food choices based on health and how they make you feel also plays a part, and as some foods are more nutrient dense than others, consuming these means you're getting more bang for your buck. These foods may also help with bloating, tiredness and energy levels. 

In this post I've chosen to share the more nutrient dense options. This doesn’t mean these foods are more superior than other foods - food is just food, after all -  they are all emotionally equivalent, however, some foods are just more nutritious than others. I like to refer to  less nutritious foods as 'play' foods, and as we all need play in our life, we also need play foods. It's all about balance :)

Peanut Butter Fudge

I have never made Fudge before, so I was excited to give it a crack. After Googling some basic fudge recipes, I got creative in the kitchen and came up with this concoction and it literally is one of the best things I have ever made! It does need to be kept in the freezer or fridge as it melts very quickly! I used my favourite functional foods cinnamon, maca powder, turmeric, ginger, peanuts and cacao.

Nutty Butter Chicken Curry

Growing up in the UK I was very spoilt with delicious curries and I always struggle to find a good curry here in Sydney. One of my favourite curries is Butter Chicken, but restaurant versions can be made with a lot of vegetable oil.  One rainy afternoon I had a real craving for a good old curry and decided to experiment with all the ingredients in my house. I ended up making one of my best dishes!

It has had a huge impact on my wellness so I would like to share with you my mini-guide so you can get started too!
