Being healthy sounds like a task to most people as our taste buds always demand different tastes like sweet, spicy, bitter, etc. Also, people give more preference to their taste buds than nutrition. Maybe that is why we now have medicines with different flavors! It may sound ironic, yet it’s true. 

We all prefer taste over our health, but it’s a high time that we give priority to our body and its nutritional requirements. Don’t worry, we will not ask you to switch to the boring diet which we know you will never follow. Rather, nobody should ever follow that. Nature and some great cooks have given us tasty foods, veggies, and many dishes that we can eat in order to maintain a balance between health requirements and our taste buds. 

Healthy Food Swaps For Healthy You


So let’s discuss some of the healthy food swaps you can have to maintain a balanced diet.

1. Sides And Snacks

You might not get time to eat the basic three meals of the day but snacks are all-day mandates. They are the reasons people survive in the workplace. 😀

But! Have you ever thought about how healthy the snacks that you put on the plate are? Maybe yes! Maybe not!

Okay! So if you think those salty peanuts are a good source of protein and those sweeteners you can have all day long then you are probably mistaken! Excessive salt will harm your bones and affect your blood pressure and extra sugar will contribute to weight gain and bad oral health. 


  • Popcorns
  • Low salt tortilla for skin as well as heart health. 
  • chips with salsa
  • Brazil nuts

These are really good and healthy food swaps.

Sides and Snacks

2. Fusion Of Chips & Salad

Yeah… we do understand that chips are everyone’s favorite. It is really difficult to leave them behind. That’s okay, but have them with salad (bowl-filled veggies) with a pinch of rock salt. 

This way your craving for chips will be satisfied and the carbs will be balanced with lots of minerals and vitamins you will get from veggies. 

Isn’t that a good idea? Do share in the comment section how you made your chips salad unique and tastier. 

To make it more healthy, opt for a low-fat dressing like a simple olive oil and balsamic vinegar that will boost the nutritional levels of omega-3 fatty acids in the salad.

3. Oven Chips Are The Better Option

Fries are the love of life! :p 

Indeed it is not possible to forgo fries no matter what! Unfortunately, their preparation method makes them our body’s enemy. No matter even if you fry them in olive oil (which is really costly). Still, they can’t become a healthy option.

Don’t worry! We do have a brilliant solution for this. Why not bake them rather than frying them? Baking them will have oil but that too in very less quantity. Moreover, eat them in a moderate quantity, they are not unhealthy but rather good for your health.

4. Detox Drinks

After putting so much effort into food swaps, you can’t let your hard work go into the vein by having sugary drinks, soda, or alcohol. 

There are so many detox drinks for your skin that can do wonders, stomach, and overall body detoxification. These drinks are also great for your metabolism and improve your digestion. 

Once you switch to detox drinks, there is no coming back. You can take our words on this!

5. Organic Teas And Coffees

If tea or a cup of coffee is your energy booster, and you already wonder how you can get rid of your addiction? Fortunately, you do not need to get rid of them. There are great alternatives that will help you be healthy while having your favorite cup of coffee or tea. 

Organic teas like green tea or ginger tea, are filled with antioxidants and maintain a healthy balance of good bacteria in your digestive system. 

Similarly, organic coffees are rich in minerals and vitamins. They are really good for your stomach and prevent indigestion.

6. Limit Your Alcohol

If you can’t or don’t want to stop alcohol consumption. The last option is to limit consumption. Simply a glass of wine or other alcohol a day is enough. Try not to exceed the limit. 

7. Organic Meats

Ahh! Another food that is hard to leave. Why don’t you try organic meats? They are low in calories, less saturated fats, and have higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids. 

To put it simply, organic meats are quite healthier than normal meats.
