    Just Swap - It Just Makes Sense Doesn't It ?

    Post by Jan1 on Fri Apr 24 2015, 17:50

    Are we getting more health conscious? I have been reading quite a few articles recently that say 'green' vegetable sales are improving. In my weekend magazine from Waitrose it states "Courgettes (Zucchini) sales have increased by 13% over last years sales, and Spring Greens, Kale, Spinach and White Cabbage sales have also increased." Many more people are now using the low carb vegetable alternatives, rather than the higher carb foods, such as pasta and rice. A lower carb alternative does not cause the blood sugar spikes, especially important if you are a diabetic ... but increasingly those who are looking for a healthier lifestyle such as LCHF (low carb high fat) find the swap you make so worthwhile to your general health and well-being. You only have to look at this Forum and many other 'low carb' Forums and blogs to see the many positive outcomes people are experiencing.

    Doesn't the food look great?  And it is, just tastes superb.

    Healthy Eating Everyone

    Yes they do look good. I do already try to swap things, but since I don't like rice anyway, I never considered that I needed a substitute for it. It's a great idea! Now I've got something new to like. Smile
