Lucy’s easy swaps
SOMETIMES IT’S THE LITTLE THINGS THAT MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE. SIMPLE SWAPS WILL MAKE YOUR CHRISTMAS HEALTHIER
Rather than buying salted, roasted nuts, roast your own in delicious spices – without the added salt.
Vegetable crisps are surprisingly simple to make. Slice veggies thinly, then bake in the oven. Use chilli and green herbs to avour.
If you’re preparing your own treats like mince pies, cakes and puddings, try halving the sugar you add. Normally you can’t even tell! You can try doubling the fruit content, too – this gives sweetness with added bre, vitamins and minerals.
Just as we check food labels for sugar, fat and salt content, comparing drinks labels can help you to choose lower ABV options, which contain fewer units of alcohol per glass.
